GIGAOM RESEARCH MAPPING SESSION: UNDERSTANDING THE MULTI-CLOUD OPPORTUNITY
*You must be registered for Structure to attend this event
Hybrid clouds, in which one public cloud and one private cloud are used together, are becoming increasingly common solutions to a range of business challenges. Figures from a recent survey suggest growing interest in something more complex and, potentially, more interesting; multi-cloud. In a multi-cloud arrangement, customers build solutions combining one or more public clouds with one or more private clouds.
This session will explore the motivations behind adopting a multi-cloud strategy, and consider the implications for customers, providers of cloud solutions, and providers of cloud management tools and other middleware components.
- Why does multi-cloud matter? Is it a trend that will grow, or one whose days are numbered?
- Who are the key players, and are they ready to exploit this opportunity?
- What issues should be borne in mind, when specifically planning to use, sell or support multi-cloud?

What happens in a Mapping Session? We tap the collective wisdom of our analysts and other thought leaders in the market sector we are researching in order to identify the most disruptive trends and their relative importance in shaping a market or industry over the next 12 to 24 months. We also examine which companies are in the best and worst positions to drive these trends — which we call disruption vectors — and gain market share and revenue.
