The cloud is an engine of innovation offering IT teams agility, scalability, and potential cost savings. However, it also brings about a new set of challenges to align on-premises systems, cloud applications, and containerized microservices. 

For most legacy-heavy industries – such as healthcare, banking, and insurance – the transition from on-premises systems to an all-cloud infrastructure is fraught with obstacles. Migrating one hundred percent to the cloud is lengthy, frustrating, potentially inefficient, and very expensive if done in haste. As a result, many organizations have landed on a hybrid infrastructure approach as a stepping stone or a permant resting place. 

To make the most of the cloud, organizations will need to reimagine their existing infrastructure.  In other words, IT teams must solve how to manage a growing ecosystem that now includes their on-premises legacy systems alongside new cloud services. Management of this hybrid infrastructure is made possible by introducing a new level of orchestration and automation to make sense of the chaos.
