This is a summarized version of a byline originally written for Data Center Knowledge. Read the complete article.
Hybrid ecosystems are increasingly becoming the norm – with traditional applications, cloud-native apps and VNFs running together.
When we look at the “human” aspect of hybrid ecosystems, employees will need to learn new skills to coexist with current ones. They’ll need to operate new technologies alongside present applications and adopt new processes to cope with the evolving landscape.
So how can we help employees succeed in this hybrid world?
Aim for a Multi-disciplinary Workforce
- While employees will have good familiarity with their existing environment, it’s vital for them to learn how to operate and orchestrate a new container-based environment, and how to run the two in parallel.
Create the Right Learning Culture
- Supporting an ongoing education and rejuvenation of the workforce is a must, and this cannot be a one-time event, but an ongoing process that is part of your company’s DNA.
Mitigate Cybersecurity as a Limiting Factor
- It is essential organizations prepare themselves to cope with the growing demands in cyber as this could become a must-have trait in their road to the hybrid digital era.
Mastering hybrid IT challenges requires new skills, ongoing learning and adaptation, new processes and new tools. Let’s make sure we provide employees with the right supporting learning environment to take an active part in the new hybrid world.
