What’s ahead for cloud in 2023? Taking control of complexity, observability, and data

The coming year looks bright for cloud, but only if companies can take better control of their cloud ecosystems. In this podcast, David Linthicum talks with Deloitte’s chief futurist, Mike Bechtel, about trends on the horizon that can help organizations brighten their cloud future. Mike’s perspective is that taming cloud complexity via abstraction, leveraging observability, and taking control of data can result in better cloud operational efficiency and better returns on cloud investments.


[It's] just so important that we kind of understand where the trends are moving so we can align our strategy to the make the most of it.
