CIO/CTO Checklist: Managing the Architecture of Multi-Cloud Environments

Cloud and private hosted environments will exist in virtually all institutions in some way, shape, or form moving forward.  

October 12, 2022 –Cloud infrastructure has improved availability and security, given the dynamic nature of emerging security threats. FIs cannot avoid a multi-cloud environment; they must consume application services, run core packages, and build applications on multiple clouds. CIOs, CTOs, and heads of architecture will need to design their ecosystem differently, given a multi-cloud environment, especially since hosted solutions will still be part of the technology mix.
