The UK businesses are slowly adopting cloud services to help them pursue hybrid cloud strategies.
Indeed, enterprises in the UK are still depending on legacy on-prem IT infrastructure but are trying to move more of their IT investments and workload to the cloud. They are then turning towards hybrid cloud strategies.
Since the pandemic, most organisations have migrated to the cloud, making them cloud-first, but the move to the cloud still takes time. Large companies with significant infrastructure investments, for instance, have more difficulty making the move quickly.
Moreover, it was found out that there is a growing demand for AI-led cloud managed services among UK enterprises. There is also a desire to stay away from vendor lock-in, as businesses require hyperscalers but with as much flexibility as possible. Hence, they are more interested in having the right partner ecosystem that involves several cloud platforms and service providers.
