Reduce multicloud complexity to deliver more business value

Multicloud has become a reality for most organizations, but there’s a tremendous amount of complexity and risk inherent in a multicloud environment. How companies deal with the complexity and risk can largely determine the success of their cloud journey. In this episode, David Linthicum and guest, Prudential Financial's Global Head of Cloud Services, Drew Tatarian, discuss keys to reduce cloud complexity and mitigate risk. Drew’s advice: pick a core vendor and augment with complementary vendors, govern and nurture your cloud ecosystem effectively, automate what you can, and have strong guiding principles that help you make decisions that maximize business value.

I'm not a purist when it comes to having to have a particular solution...making sure that whatever we build delivers the value.

Drew Tatarian is the Global Head of Cloud Services at Prudential Financial. He's responsible for global cloud strategy and evangelism, cloud architecture, operating model transformation, and DevOps capability development.
