Once a major turning point for an enterprise’s digital transformation, the cloud has permeated the enterprise workplace, seemingly omnipresent in the digital workflow. Now almost 50% of enterprises are utilizing more than one cloud, with one out of every eleven enterprises deploying sites and apps across five clouds or more. While multiple clouds can bring agility, mobility, and speed to the organization, the added responsibility of managing multiple cloud environments can lead to inefficiencies that would significantly cripple any progress being made.
So how can organizations bypass the roadblocks that can plague a multicloud solution? They could start by taking a page or two from Adobe, who have managed to leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) alongside their own private cloud to build a seamless environment for their developers and their customers. For starters, they scoped out and implemented a complete multicloud strategy by creating a migration and implementation playbook for the whole team can follow, allowing a team to bypass moments of indecision when deciding the architecture guidelines, implementation timeline, and networking options. Those networking options are often the deciding factor of successful multicloud strategy, which depends on utilizing a robust architecture routing system to ensure interconnectivity between services. Finally, encouraging collaboration between teams building on the cloud is an essential last step, as it’s not uncommon to face territorial teams unwilling to share their knowledge and avoid costly missteps built out of wanton or willful ignorance.
