More than 80% of business workloads are held back due to the proprietary nature of today’s cloud market. This prevents portability of data and applications across multiple clouds, data security in a multi-cloud environment and consistent cloud management.
“Most companies today are only 20 percent along their cloud journey, renting compute power to cut costs, the next 80 percent is about unlocking real business value and driving growth. This is the next chapter of the cloud. It requires shifting business applications to hybrid cloud, extracting more data and optimizing every part of the business, from supply chains to sales."
Ginni Rometty, IBM Chairman, President and CEO
