Multicloud organizations are 6.3 times faster to market, and they're more successful than their competitors, yet multicloud complexity and cost continue to vex most companies. This problem was the fuel for discussions at the NetApp exclusive Cloud Field Day (CFDx), held at NetApp’s corporate offices in San Jose.
Industry experts joined NetApp leaders to answer the question, “How do you make multicloud work for you?” with demonstrations and conversations centered on key shifts in the market. Specifically, these three new realities were spotlighted:
This rapid evolution is playing out in a highly competitive business environment that is pushing already-taxed technology teams to change the economics of enterprise data management by architecting storage environments that deliver new levels of operational efficiency and contain growing storage costs. As discussed in the session, and clear to all in the room, the hurdle to multicloud success has been raised. No longer are leaders compensated for the hardware they manage, but instead on the business outcomes they deliver.
The day's demos and discussion were divided into four sessions that you won’t want to miss. So grab a snack, kick back, and dig into the topics that most interest you.

For many organizations, multicloud is a given. However, the numerous sources of complexity and cost are optional. For firms that want to liberate siloed data, spur innovation, and deliver business outcomes faster, technology that is available today can help.
