Enterprises in every industry are faced with massively growing data (and even greater data needs), a shift of IT services and technology infrastructure to the cloud, and a business imperative to become data-driven.
To be truly data-driven, enterprises need to analyze their data wherever it resides – whether it’s on-premises or in the cloud. And it’s not enough to have separate hybrid cloud and data analytics strategies running in parallel.

Highlights you’ll read about:
- Hybrid cloud is a strategic imperative that enables enterprises to make the most efficient use of the variety of infrastructure location options
- 57% of enterprises are moving towards a hybrid cloud IT environment that leverages both on-premises systems and off-premises cloud/hosted resources in an integrated fashion
- While more enterprises are focused on becoming data-driven, more than half their data today is “dark data” that is not being used for business insight
- The intersection of hybrid cloud and data analytics should be a hybrid cloud analytics strategy underpinned by hybrid data warehousing or data lake technology, which will enable enterprises to increase their analysis of data where it resides—on-premises or in the cloud
