The agility and improved mission support associated with the widespread move to cloud computing has made this megatrend one of the most positive forces in IT today. Some of the greatest benefits to enterprises come with the ability to smartly mix public and private clouds in hybrid cloud environments. However, optimizing the use of multiple public clouds and on-prem solutions comes with challenges, especially with how data is managed in this environment.
This presentation reviews key challenges that follow the use of hybrid clouds for data analytics. It also provides a conceptual framework for mitigating challenges in hybrid cloud data analytics. This framework is designed to inform your data strategy and optimize it for the age of hybrid cloud computing.
