FINAL WORD Multi cloud, hybrid cloud, dominate annual investments Adrian Pickering, Regional Head for Middle East and North Africa at Red Hat. R ed Hat surveyed more than 400 Red Hat customers from around the globe about their annual priorities, including top challenges, budget allocation, cloud deployment strategies, and plans for emerging technologies. Last year’s survey revealed that most respondents were on the digital transformation journey and looking to shift their investments to modern infrastructure and applications. The Red Hat Global Customer Tech Outlook 2018 saw a bit of a shift from previous years, however, and some findings highlighted respondents’ mind shift towards doing more with existing IT investments. Others exemplified the role cloud initiatives are playing within organisations. Here is what we learned from the Red Hat Global Customer Tech Outlook 2018. IT spend is shifting While spend in 2017 focused on optimising existing IT, most respondents are planning to spend more of their budgets in the following areas: delivering cloud infrastructure and services 36%; integrating data and applications 76%; and developing and deploying modern applications 30%. Cloud initiatives are expected to continue growing and maturing in 2018: As in 2017, funding for cloud infrastructure was cited as a top focus for investments among survey respondents in 2018 36%, with hybrid and multi-cloud favored. Most organisations surveyed 61%, also now define their cloud infrastructure strategies as hybrid, as compared to last year, when it was a split between hybrid 30% and private 38%. While hybrid cloud is the hot strategy, some respondents are still going beyond 66 For most organisations, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and IoT, are not high priority areas in 2018, according to Adrian Pickering at Red Hat. hybrid coordination to workload portability across more than one cloud concurrently, using multi-cloud strategies for t ‘•₯ȁ…ΑΑΜΈ)‰½ΥΠ€Μά”½˜Ι•ΝΑ½Ή‘₯Ήœ½Ι…Ή₯Ν…Ρ₯½ΉΜ…Ι”)΅½Ω₯ΉœΡ½έ…ɑ́„΅Υ±Ρ€΅±½Υ™ΥΡΥΙ”°•₯Ρ‘•Θ)‘•Α±½ε₯Ήœ½ΘΑ±…ΉΉ₯ΉœΡΌ‘•Α±½δ„΅Υ±Ρ€΄)±½Υ₯Ή™Ι…ΝΡΙՍΡΥΙ”₯Έ€ΘΐΔก‰Υ₯±‘₯Ήœ‰±½­Μ½˜‘₯₯Ρ…°ΡΙ…ΉΝ™½Ι΅…Ρ₯½»ŠP)έ₯Ρ ₯ΉΩ•ΝΡ΅•ΉΡ́₯Έ₯ΉΡ•Ι…Ρ₯½Έ°±½Υ)₯Ή™Ι…ΝΡΙՍΡΥΙ”°…Ή΅½‘•ΙΈ…ΑΑΜΈQ‘₯Μ)₯́Α•Ι‘…Ά„½½₯Ή‘₯…Ρ₯½ΈΡ‘…Ё…΅½Ήœ)•ΉΡ•ΙΑΙ₯Ν”ΥΝΡ½΅•ΙΜ°Ρ‘₯́₯́Ν₯΅Α±δ‘½ά)Ρ‘•δ…Ι”‘•±₯Ω•Ι₯Ήœ΅½Ι”΅½‘•ΙΈΝ•ΙΩ₯•Μ)Ή½ίŠQΉΌΡΙ…ΉΝ™½Ι΅…Ρ₯½ΈΡ…œΉ••‘•Έ)5½‘•ΙΉ₯Ν₯Ήœ%P₯ΉΩ•ΝΡ΅•ΉΡ́ѽΐ)‘…±±•Ή”…ΉΑΙ₯½Ι₯Ρ䁡•Ι₯ΉœΡ•‘Ή½±½₯•Μ…Ι”)ΝΡ₯±°•΅•Ι₯Ήœ)]‘₯±”΅½ΝЁ½Ι…Ή₯Ν…Ρ₯½ΉΜέ•Ι”Ρ…­±₯Ήœ)‘₯₯Ρ…°ΡΙ…ΉΝ™½Ι΅…Ρ₯½Έ…½Ι‘₯ΉœΡΌ½ΥΘ(ΘΐΔ܁ΝΥΙٕ䰁ё₯́啅ȁ½Ή”ΑΙ₯½Ι₯Ρ䁙½Θ)΅…ΉδΙ•ΝΑ½Ή‘•ΉΡ́₯́…‘‘Ι•ΝΝ₯ΉœΡ‘”)‘…±±•Ή•Μ…ΝΝ½₯…Ρ•έ₯Ρ ½ΑΡ₯΅₯Ν₯Ήœ)…Ή΅½‘•ΙΉ₯Ν₯Ήœ•α₯ΝΡ₯Ήœ%P₯ΉΩ•ΝΡ΅•ΉΡΜ°)έ‘₯ €ΠΘ”½˜ΝΥΙΩ•δΙ•ΝΑ½Ή‘•ΉΡ́ɅΉ­•)…́„Ρ½ΐ‘…±±•Ή”₯Έ€ΘΐΔก‘‘₯Ρ₯½Ή…°Ρ½ΐ)‘…±±•Ή•Μ₯Ή±Υ‘”₯΅ΑΙ½Ω₯ΉœΝ•ΥΙ₯Ρδ(Πά”°…ΥΡ½΅…Ρ₯ΉœΑΙ½•ΝΝ•Μ€ΜΨ”°…Ή)₯ΉΡ•Ι…Ρ₯½Έ½˜‘…Ρ„°ΑΙ½•Ν͕́…Ή…ΑΑΜ(ΘΨ”Έ‘‘₯Ρ₯½Ή…±±δ°€ΜΔ”½˜Ι•ΝΑ½Ή‘•ΉΡΜ)½ΉΝ₯‘•Θ΅½‘•ΙΉ₯Ν₯Ήœ•α₯ΝΡ₯Ήœ%P)₯ΉΩ•ΝΡ΅•ΉΡ́„™ΥΉ‘₯ΉœΑΙ₯½Ι₯ΡδΡ‘₯́啅ȸ=Ω•Θ€Τΐ”½˜Ι•ΝΑ½Ή‘•ΉΡ́ɕΑ½ΙΡ•Ρ‘•δ)‘…Ω”ΉΌΑ±…ΉΜΡΌ½Ή‘ՍЁɕ͕…ɍ ½Θ)₯΅Α±•΅•ΉΠ…ΙΡ₯™₯₯…°₯ΉΡ•±±₯•Ή”½Θ΅…‘₯Ή”)±•…ΙΉ₯ΉœΝ½±ΥΡ₯½ΉΜ₯Έ€ΘΐΔก±₯ΡΡ±”½Ω•Θ€Πΐ”)Ν…₯Ρ‘”Ν…΅”½˜Ρ‘”%ΉΡ•ΙΉ•Π½˜Q‘₯ΉΜΈ)½Θ΅½ΝЁ%P½Ι…Ή₯Ν…Ρ₯½ΉΜ°Ρ‘•Ν”•΅•Ι₯Ήœ)Ρ•‘Ή½±½δ…Ι•…́…Ι”ΝΡ₯±°•΅•Ι₯Ήœ…ΉΉ½Π)„Ρ½ΐΑΙ₯½Ι₯Ρδ₯Έ€ΘΐΔก́ΥΑΝΡΙ•…΄½Α•Έ)Ν½Υɍ”₯ΉΉ½Ω…Ρ₯½Έ…‘Ω…Ή•ΜΡ‘•Ν”…Ι•…Μ°έ”)•αΑ•ΠΡΌΝ•”…‘½ΑΡ₯½ΈΑ±…ΉΜ™½±±½άΝΥ₯Ё₯Έ)™ΥΡΥΙ”ΝΥΙΩ•εΜΈ)5½‘•ΙΉ₯Ν”™₯ΙΝΠ°ΡΙ…ΉΝ™½Ι΄)Ν•½Ή=H‘₯₯Ρ…°ΡΙ…ΉΝ™½Ι΅…Ρ₯½Έ)‰δ…Ήδ½Ρ‘•ΘΉ…΅”ό)Ω•Ιε½Ή”₯́х±­₯Ήœ…‰½ΥЁ‘₯₯Ρ…°)ΡΙ…ΉΝ™½Ι΅…Ρ₯½Έ°‰ΥЁ…Ι”΅½ΝЁ½Ι…Ή₯Ν…Ρ₯½ΉΜ)•α•ΥΡ₯Ήœ½ΈΡ‘½Ν”₯Ή₯Ρ₯…Ρ₯Ω•Μό)MΥΙΑΙ₯Ν₯Ή±δ°½Υȁ‘…Ρ„Ν‘½έ•Ρ‘…Ё½Ή±δ(Δ䔁½˜Ι•ΝΑ½Ή‘•ΉΡ́Α±…ΈΡΌ•α•ΥΡ”½Έ)‘₯₯Ρ…°ΡΙ…ΉΝ™½Ι΅…Ρ₯½Έ₯Ή₯Ρ₯…Ρ₯ٕ́₯Έ€ΘΐΔΰΈ) •…ΥΝ”΅½‘•ΙΉ₯Ν₯Ήœ•α₯ΝΡ₯Ήœ%PΙ•΅…₯ΉΜ)„Ρ½ΐ‘…±±•Ή”€ΠΘ”°έ”‰•±₯•Ω”Ρ‘₯Μ)Ν‘½έ́ё…ЁɕΝΑ½Ή‘•ΉΡ́…Ι”™½ΥΝ₯Ήœ½Έ)½ΑΡ₯΅₯Ν₯ΉœΡ‘½Ν”₯ΉΩ•ΝΡ΅•ΉΡ́…ΉΙ•…Ρ₯Ήœ)„΅½Ι”…₯±”₯Ή™Ι…ΝΡΙՍΡΥΙ”‰•™½Ι”΅½Ω₯Ήœ)…‘•…έ₯Ρ ™Υ±°‘₯₯Ρ…°ΡΙ…ΉΝ™½Ι΅…Ρ₯½ΈΈ)Q‘…Ёͅ₯°έ”…±ΝΌΝ•”•Ω₯‘•Ή”Ρ‘…Π)½Ι…Ή₯Ν…Ρ₯½ΉΜ…Ι”₯΅Α±•΅•ΉΡ₯ΉœΡ‘”)½Θ΅…Ήδ½Ι…Ή₯Ν…Ρ₯½ΉΜ°±½Υ)ΝΡΙ…Ρ•₯•Μ…Ι”ΝΡ₯±°½΅₯ΉœΡ½•Ρ‘•Θ)=Ή”΅Ρ‘₯ɐ½˜Ι•ΝΑ½Ή‘•ΉΡ́ͅδΡ‘•₯Θ)½Ι…Ή₯Ν…Ρ₯½ΉΜ‘ΌΉ½Π‘…Ω”„‘•™₯Ή•±½Υ)ΝΡΙ…Ρ•δΈQ‘₯́΅…䁉”…Έ₯Ή‘₯…Ρ₯½ΈΡ‘…Π)•ΉΡ•ΙΑΙ₯Ν”ΥΝΡ½΅•Ί…Ι”ΝΡ₯±°…Ι•™Υ±±δ)݅э‘₯ΉœΡ‘”•Ω•Θ΅•Ω½±Ω₯Ήœ±½Υ)±…Ή‘͍…Α”Έ½Θ%P±•…‘•ΊݑΌ‘…Ω”)‘•™₯Ή•Ρ‘•₯ȁ½Ι…Ή₯Ν…Ρ₯½»Šé±½ΥΝΡΙ…Ρ•δ°)έ”Ν•”Ρ‘₯́…́…Έ₯Ή‘₯…Ρ₯½ΈΡ‘…Ёё•δ)΅…䁹••ΡΌ΅½Ι”±•…ɱ䁅ΙΡ₯Υ±…Ρ”Ρ‘…Π)ΝΡΙ…Ρ•δ…Ι½Ν́ё•₯ȁ½Ι…Ή₯Ν…Ρ₯½ΉΜΈ)I•!…Ё½Ή‘Սѕ…Έ½Ή±₯Ή”ΝΥΙΩ•δ₯Έ)M•ΑΡ•΅‰•Θ€ΘΐΔ܁ΥΝ₯ΉœQ•‘Y…±₯‘…Ρ”½˜„)Α½½°½˜I•!…ЁΥΝΡ½΅•Ί…‰½ΥЁё•₯ȁѕ )ΑΙ₯½Ι₯Ρ₯•Μ…Ή₯ΉΝ₯‘Ρ́΅½Ω₯Ήœ₯ΉΡΌ€ΘΐΔΰΈ)I•ΝΑ½Ή‘•ΉΡ́ݕɔ™Ι½΄…±°½Ω•ΘΡ‘”±½‰”°)Ι•ΑΙ•Ν•ΉΡ₯ΉœΡ‘”™½±±½έ₯ΉœΙ•₯½ΉΜθΝ₯„)A…₯™₯ŒμΥΙ½Α”°5₯‘‘±”…ΝΠ°™Ι₯„μ1…Ρ₯Έ)΅•Ι₯„쁅Ή9½ΙΡ ΅•Ι₯„ΈƒΎ ˆ)%ΝΝΥ”€ΔΨ)%9Q11%9PQ  !991
