A new multi-cloud campaign from Softcat offers views and insights founded on a strategy incorporating numerous public cloud vendors.

Softcat, a leading technology provider, introduces a new campaign showing how to bring simplicity out of complexity using a multi-cloud strategy – a technique that utilises cloud technology from numerous public cloud vendors.

Many key figures within Softcat, offer their insight in this campaign, helping to clarify the multi-cloud strategy in greater detail. The videos are presented as short interview-style pieces which examine how multi-cloud can help produce the outcomes organisations need.

To begin, Andrew Cochrane, Datacentre Chief Technologist at Softcat, goes into the technical considerations of multi-cloud, such as connectivity, management and data. In addition, he also explains how to overcome those considerations: “What we need to do is reset our expectations of cloud. Cloud isn’t only about moving workload. Cloud is about how we deploy in a consistent fashion. The focus on the relationship that IT has with the business also needs to be taken into account.”

Dean Gardner, Chief Technologist at Softcat, then explains the significance of multi-cloud and the sizeable difficulties that customers face. Gardner breaks them down into three parts: “The first challenge is legacy platforms, the technical debt that exists. And the second is transforming that and delivering against the requirements for change… And finally, the security, the governance, the operational aspect of a new way of working.”

Last, but not least, we hear from Tim Jeans, Solutions Sales Director at Softcat, who focuses on how multi-cloud effects organisations and why Softcat can help companies overcome the stumbling blocks of implementation. “Softcat confidently provides trustworthy independent advice… We take the time to understand the criteria for success for each organisation and the outcomes needed to deliver.”

In summary, insights into the following key areas are presented:

Technical factors of multi-cloud – whether it be a hybrid infrastructure or a hybrid datacentre, and the relevance of adopting a multi-cloud mindset.

Why multi-cloud is significant – and learning about the biggest customer challenges today.

How multi-cloud impacts organisations – and how Softcat can help them implement the right cloud technology.
