Ensono – Hybrid IT: Formulating the Right Blend
By Karthik Ramkrishna
The art of war has a few teachings that surprisingly relate well to running a business today. One key takeaway is the importance of balancing between the resources spent on the frontline for conquering, and the magnitude of defense back home, which protects the riches to sustain the kingdom. Enterprise CIOs are often caught between two personas in a similar way.
While one part aims at ‘keeping the lights on’ with the existing legacy infrastructure, the other is a futurist, envisaging and executing a digital transformation to ‘rope in’ next-gen infrastructures. In essence, the IT function is the quintessential bridge that carries the onus of passing the enterprise-wide workload over to the new era of private and public cloud.
Although public cloud provisions like AWS, offer a great set of tools to configure virtual environments, the operability of such technologies require skill and expertise levels that are unavailable to a majority of enterprises. Moreover, the question still remains on how organizations can make their high-performance consumer-facing applications in the cloud interact and send queries to the non-cloud systems that commonly house the data sought by the cloud apps.
