Commenting on the report, an analyst from the reports team said: “The hybrid deployment model for IT services is gaining pace over the cloud-based model. To overcome the shortcomings of both on-premise and cloud-based models, customers are turning to the hybrid model. These are more flexible and allow for customization to suit the individual business needs of customers. Also, as this model provides for automatic upgrades and has the ability to handle complex IT transactions, it is one of the most advanced models of IT services deployment. Firms that need to increase their IT capabilities without adding servers or related infrastructure move toward hybrid models. However, there are also some concerns associated with this model; instead of providing the best of both on-premise and cloud-based models, it can create unnecessary complications for a firm's IT operations.”
