One significant advantage of implementing a hybrid IT solution is that integration with central IT brings the core strengths of legacy IT, including operations management, security, backup, and disaster recovery tools and processes.

In many ways, developing and deploying a hybrid IT environment is like assembling a jigsaw puzzle, often without a clear picture of what the final implementation will look like. The ease of deploying cloud components and implementing DevOps-driven solutions without going through central IT can result in services and solutions that are poorly aligned. While they may solve immediate problems, they are unlikely to scale well or fit together to drive future business growth.

Hybrid IT is emerging as the new normal for enterprise IT because it allows enterprises to choose the blend of apps, services, and platforms that work for their needs. These technologies are widely distributed, constantly changing, and delivered at massive scale. By extending the operational rigor of legacy IT from the data center to the hybrid cloud, businesses can build a strong backbone for the delivery of business services.

This report covers the basics of implementing and running an enterprise hybrid IT environment that extends the benefits of legacy IT to hybrid and cloud deployments, from delivering a secure environment, to budgetary considerations, to managing effectively across multiple platforms.
