In this chapter, we learned what a true multi-cloud concept is. It’s more than a hybrid platform, comprising different cloud solutions such as IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, containers, and serverless in a platform that we can consider to be a best-of-breed mixed zone. You are able to match a solution to a given business strategy. Here, enterprise architecture comes into play: business requirements lead at all times and are enabled by the use of data, applications, and, lastly, technology. Enterprise architecture methodologies such as TOGAF are good frameworks for translating a business strategy into an IT strategy, including roadmaps.

We looked at the main players in the field and the emerging cloud providers. Over the course of this book, we will further explore the portfolios of these providers and discuss how we can integrate solutions, really mastering the multi-cloud domain. In the final section, the organization of the transformation was discussed, as well as how the role of the architect is changing.

In the next chapter, we will further explore the enterprise strategy and see how we can accelerate business innovation using multi-cloud concepts.
