7. Hybrid Cloud, Cloud Service Broker
Hybrid is the name of the game for cloud in 2014, Gartner said. Even if working in the private cloud, Gartner said enterprises should make sure they are ready to go hybrid in the future. Stepping in to take charge of this transition in 2014 will be the Cloud Services Broker (CSB), Gartner said. The 2014 hybrid cloud will be pretty static, Gartner said, but will get more and more dynamic as the market evolves and CSBs grow in the marketplace.
