The term “hybrid solution” isn't marketing fluff; it’s a utopia that IT departments everywhere are trying to achieve. The challenge facing IT managers is that they know they need a hybrid solution, but aren’t sure how to get there. Should they take a “cloud-first” or “premise-first” approach? There’s a lot of confusion.
We think another approach to consider is “API-first.” Microsoft is the only provider on the market offering this approach right now, clearly differentiating itself from Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform.
Why "API-first?" Dana Gardner, president and principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions explains: “The API-first and converged infrastructure models together are highly compatible, synergistic.”
This is one approach we think organizations should consider because the higher abstraction "API-first" approach applies to as many aspects of IT as possible.
