Welcome to the era of the digital enterprise, where digital is your journey and cognitive is your destination. As business leaders, you are under growing pressure to use information to its fullest potential, delivering new customer experiences as fuel for business growth. The digital economy is changing the way we gather information, gain insights, reinvent our businesses and innovate both quickly and iteratively.

In this environment, it’s not enough to just manage data volume. Organizations need to become cognitive businesses, combining information and experience to unlock deeper understanding of customers, processes and strategies. Hybrid cloud is the new normal, accelerating your transformation to a digital enterprise through business innovation and enhanced cloud-enabled solutions designed to maximize customer engagement, as shown in Figure 1. In fact, 70 percent of IT decision-makers say they expect to always have a hybrid blend of traditional IT and cloud, according to a 2016 IBM Center for Applied Insights survey.

A hybrid cloud environment, combining traditional IT systems and public cloud, enables you to extend business processes beyond the walls of your organization. For example, many organizations use public cloud as a collaborative development environment to create innovative applications that can then be ported to an on-premises or hybrid production environment.
