A global cloud infrastructure offers many potential benefits, but also many challenges, and every organisation’s hybrid cloud strategy is unique. BT presents practical advice on getting the most from the cloud 

Your ageing infrastructure may be getting in the way of your cloud usage, and realising cloud benefits can be difficult, particularly if you want to drive scale or you don’t have the capabilities, skills and experience you need. 

With our cloud managed services and multi cloud management expertise, we can easily, reliably and securely connect your sites and users to the apps and data needed, regardless of location.

How do you get the right cloud infrastructure and skills?

Excerpts from BT's free ebook 'Balance the risks and rewards of the cloud'

'There’s so much to think about when it comes to cloud adoption, especially when it’s at scale. Just because a proof of concept works, doesn’t mean it will when scaled up. It’s not just about the blueprint, the technology, or the infrastructure. To really reap the rewards of agility, innovation and cost savings at scale, you need to be the maestro of multi-cloud management.' 

'How do you get the choice between public, private and hybrid cloud and a flexible network? How do you get the right skills, user experience and security? And how do you get consistency across your operations, processes and people so you can scale and be compliant?' 

'A key challenge is connecting your hybrid network to your cloud services. You may have already started this process. But switching from an infrastructure that’s been built to support your old apps and systems to one that supports a hybrid cloud approach is a big project. It’s not just about connecting to cloud services and wider data centre services. It’s about making sure you actually get the benefits of the cloud, like flexibility, agility, and cost savings.'
