You may have heard the phrase “Hybrid IT” before, however, some people are unaware of exactly how it works. In essence, Hybrid IT is an enterprise computer system where an organization utilizes a combination of in-house information technology resources and cloud-based information technology services. Businesses that operate an array of applications in multiple environments must ensure that their various systems have the ability to work together properly and not be difficult for the end-user. A Hybrid IT system goes a long way in keeping things on track.
Hybrid IT allows your organization to remain productive and maintain a centralized IT approach while researching, experimenting, and testing cloud-based computing. To put it another way, Hybrid IT systems have the ability to unite your in-house data with cloud-based systems that are hosted on private or public clouds. There are some significant advantages to switching over to a Hybrid IT system. First and foremost, it can provide your organization with tremendous cost savings in the form of reduced hardware purchases, hardware maintenance, and utility expenses. In fact, when a Hybrid IT system is constructed properly it can actually result in an immediate return on investment.
Organizations that utilize Hybrid IT experience an overall reduction in IT-related expenses. In addition, many companies are switching over to a Hybrid IT infrastructure due to the fact that it provides a higher level of both reliability and flexibility. In essence, a Hybrid IT system provides organizations with the ability to enhance customized professional services in order to meet the organization’s particular requirements.
Reliability-wise, by going hybrid you’re not putting all of your eggs in the same basket. For example, if there are issues with the legacy IT system, the cloud-based side of the system can be utilized instead. On the other hand, if there are issues with the cloud-based side of the Hybrid IT system, the in-house information technology services can be utilized. Last but certainly not least, Hybrid IT computing provides organizations with the option to choose the technology platforms that they would prefer to keep in-house and which ones they’re willing to upload to the cloud. The bottom line is that Hybrid IT provides you with full control over your information technology system, is good for your organization’s bottom line, and can provide your users with a modern and efficient IT environment.
