Mixing IT up with hybrid IT
Hybrid IT, combining cloud and on-premise architecture, offers exciting potential to leverage the strengths of both. For example, the on-premise control over data and infrastructure, with the scalability, flexibility and cost savings of cloud. But you can’t ignore the challenges!
Presentations from the X-change of 27 April 2023.
27 / 04 / 23
At this session, we explored hybrid IT together, from the increased resilience and redundancy of a distributed workload, to the added complexity of management and integration. Plus security, data governance and balancing costs. Clearly, success in hybrid IT requires much more than simply implementing two environments and hoping for the best.
Proximus started us off with the main drivers and building blocks of a hybrid IT transformation. Next, we heard from Inetum-Realdolmen about how to handle the operating challenges to get the most from your hybrid architecture. Kyndryl zoomed in on the CIO perspective. Then, we got the real-life story about how VUB combines on-premise and public cloud to service the university’s administration, education and research departments. We wrapped up with time to share participants’ own questions and insight.
