lower costs but-most importantly-higher business value and
ROI. They basically challenged
their competitors or other folks
in the environment to get with
the program by showing them
the business value of leveraging
hybrid, specifically in
a digital environment.
ISM: Moving to a hybrid
cloud environment has
been shown to improve
productivity and security.
How can it reduce costs?
LS: If you can utilize an
environment in a pay-as-you-go
methodology and use what you
need, that definitely lowers your
cost. They saw they were freeing
up people. The cost of human
capital is high; people doing
tasks that could be handled by
technologies is kind of a silly use
of a person. That was another way
they improved or leveraged the
costs they were putting out.
If you have something fit for
purpose as opposed to one size
fits all, it's more logical that
you're going to be cost-optimized.
I would say it's these three
things: the capex (capital
expense), opex (operating
expense) and freeing up people
to work on stuff that drives value,
letting costs go to automation-
which is cheaper-and then the fit
for purpose.
ISM: The study showed that
9 in 10 of the frontrunners
reported a greater ROI than
a traditional or all-cloud
environment. Why do you
think that is?
LS: Speed and agility are driving
it overall. If you have the speed
to leverage the environment the
way you want to, with the right
environment, you can do that a
lot faster. They said they were 4x
more likely to leverage hybrid in
launching a digital service, so

to me, digital drives cloud and
cloud drives digital.
The faster you can get a new
service in the market, the faster
you can make money.
Digital usually opens up new
channels, so these guys who

were leading were twice as
likely to be expanding channels,
which also opens up for more
revenue. The costs are nice,
but this is about driving new
business, and that's really the
value clients are seeing.
