RESEARCH PAPER: Hybrid IT Helps Businesses Navigate Through Digital Transformation

By John Fruehe - June 5, 2017
In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities.

Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases.
