The definition of hybrid IT: Utilizing a combination of on-premise IT services and cloud or colocation.
Hybrid information technology is an “I choose this” story. A prevailing assumption among many professionals throughout the IT industry is that “hybrid” is a word to describe a transitional state—organizations are on a journey to the cloud, and eventually, 100% of their systems will live there. This hypothesis does not align with what the data tells us: organizations choose hybrid IT because it makes business sense. Hybrid IT workloads, reasons businesses are using them, future hybrid plans, and cost savings data are analyzed in The Peak 10 Hybrid IT Study: A Solid Business Case for Mixed Infrastructure.
