Cloud can drive innovation, but only if you rein in sprawl and complexity

Small, cloud-native companies can profoundly disrupt their larger, less-flexible competitors via agility and innovation, but cloud complexity still looms for both large and small enterprises. In this episode, David Linthicum talks with cloud influencer Ian Moyse about how any company—no matter its size—can leverage cloud to move quickly and innovate faster. However, it’s essential to reduce cloud complexity and sprawl to achieve a lean cloud ecosystem that drives innovation.


The complexity and the choice levels is broadening...with new innovations, new ways of doing things in sectors that need disrupting. So, I think what we're going to see is a continued complexity and technology.

Ian Moyse has over 30 years of experience in the IT Sector, with nine years specializing in security, 12 years in cloud, and over 23 years of channel experience. He is a fellow of the Institute of Sales Management (ISM) and member of the Association of Professional Sales (APS).


Reducing complexity throughout your multi-cloud journey

Multi-cloud complexity is increasing, but there are ways to improve the situation. For many companies, it's a matter of using more cross-cloud services and edge computing, better data management, and decentralization.
