One surprising finding of Flexera’s RightScale 2019 State of the Cloud report is that 84 percent of enterprises surveyed have a multicloud strategy. No, it’s not surprising that the number is so high. Rather, it’s surprising that the number isn’t 100 percent. After all, the cloud has been driven by developer convenience, and those same developers are choosing services from different clouds, running them throughout an enterprise.
It’s a convenient fiction that enterprises meant for this sprawling cloud mess to happen.
Don’t believe me? Let’s look at how this “strategic thinking” is working out.
It’s the cloud all the way down to the data center
RightScale polled 786 cloud professionals to figure out adoption trends. As shown in Flexera’s data, enterprises are a bit all over the map in terms of cloud strategy.
