Companies Are Finding Success Implementing Hybrid Cloud Environments
Once they have jumped on the hybrid cloud bandwagon, companies are reporting significant returns for their efforts according to a recent survey by the IBM Center for Applied Insights. The survey received input from 500 hybrid cloud implementers from 13 countries and 23 industries, two-thirds of which said that implementing hybrid cloud environments are providing a competitive advantage.

The IBM “Growing up Hybrid: Accelerating Digital Transformation” research also identified a leading group of organizations - 26 percent of the respondents – who were using hybrid clouds to jumpstart “next-generation” initiatives. 

Responses from these “Leaders” included:

Leaders bring both IT and business leaders to the table
