Building a Better Enterprise Cloud

Dell Playbooks Technology Background

Enterprise cloud infrastructure today is most often a mix of public, private and edge cloud infrastructure. As cloud technology has evolved, enterprise IT teams tend to choose cloud platforms that will best serve the workload needs of specific applications. As a result, the average business today uses five different cloud providers, each with their own tools for governance, service definition, security and resource virtualization. This ad hoc approach to managing a multicloud environment inevitably adds cost and complexity while limiting innovation.
