There are many reasons for companies to move to a hybrid cloud model, among those being the competitive advantage gained from an increased speed to market. The speed of IT services provisioning can change from weeks to hours, giving organisations the ability to rapidly launch new products or services and drive revenue growth. The scalability of cloud enables businesses to meet demand for their services without the need for large, up-front investments in infrastructure. By reducing investment costs, hybrid cloud platforms give organisations the business agility to rapidly enter new markets and jump-start new initiatives globally. It also enables organisations to introduce new features, manufacturing processes, distribution channels and to respond to shifts in customer demand or activity by competitors. Hybrid cloud offers a new model for businesses to exploit innovative technologies. It can positively impact an organisation through greater revenue, global market reach, and customer satisfaction, at lower cost and risk.
