Is the multi-cloud here to stay and are enterprises really adopting this strategy? ESG’s IT Spending Intentions survey shows that 81% of current public cloud infrastructure customers use multiple CSPs and 53% expect the number of unique CSPs they use to increase over the next three years. The proliferation of multiple cloud providers is far from being a point-in-time statistic and it is manly driven by companies’ desire to identify the cloud provider that best fits each application and workload.

There I was shooting the breeze with an old mate. The conversation turned to why Madge Networks which I wrote about here went titsup. My analysis is that Madge Networks had a solution and decided to go out and find a problem. They deferred to more incorrect strategic technology choices. The truth of the matter is that when something goes titsup, its not because of one reason only, but a myriad of them all contributing to the negative consequence. There are the immediate or visual ones, which are underpinned by intermediate ones and finally after digging right down, there are the root causes. There is never a singular root cause for anything but I'll present my opinion and encourage everyone else to chip in. All of them together are more likely the reason the company went titsup. As far as technology brainfarts go there is no better example than Kodak . They invented the digital camera that killed them. However, they were so focused on milking people in their leg
