Cloud computing is moving from an emerging technology to an accepted business computing strategy. It is a technology that allows resources to be connected through private and public networks, simplifying a company’s on-premises infrastructure while allowing flexible scaling for data and applications. The hybrid cloud, which combines on-premises and cloud-based systems, can be especially useful for midsize businesses because it can provide large enterprise capabilities at an affordable cost.

If your company is using the cloud for one or more of its business systems, you should understand what a hybrid cloud environment is and how it can benefit your business. Listen as Robert Kugel, SVP & Research Director at Ventana Research and Alan Dickinson, Program Director of WW Cloud Computing at IBM, discuss in-depth insights into best practices for using the hybrid cloud.
