To increase cloud value, it's essential to manage complexity and control costs

As cloud matures, companies are focusing on getting more value from their cloud investments. In this episode, David Linthicum talks with Constellation Research’s Dion Hinchcliffe about current cloud issues and how organizations can increase their cloud value. According to Dion, success lies in embracing multi-cloud, reining in cloud costs, and using cross-cloud management strategies like superclouds to manage multi-cloud complexity. Commercial clouds will play a big role as well.

Complexity management is pretty much what IT has become now. That's the most strategic overarching. How do we take what we do and make it simpler, easier?

Dion Hinchcliffe is Vice President and Principal Analyst at Constellation Research. He is an internationally recognized business strategist, bestselling author, enterprise architect, industry analyst, and keynote speaker.
