Our Gartner surveys have revealed what our clients believe to be the biggest challenges to implementing a true multicloud strategy. The top 5 are shown in Figure 1.
These challenges can be daunting for many. The good news is that new cloud vendors keep emerging that can help address these challenges.
My colleagues, Arun Chandrasekaran, Sid Nag, and David Wright have authored a document that identifies 4 new and exciting vendors in the cloud space. This document, Cool Vendors in Cloud Computing, is well worth the read if you are trying to find new and innovative ways to make a cloud strategy work for you. The point is that Gartner can help you get an edge with new and exciting vendors that are now coming into the cloud arena.
