The optimization of a multicloud architecture, simply put, is the ability to configure the technology to optimize the architecture for the business requirements, as well as to minimize costs. For each dollar spent on cloud technology, you want the maximum value coming back to the business.
The truth is that few cloud architectures are fully optimized. I’ve talked about the bias towards complexity as a primary culprit. However, the root cause is waiting to think about architecture optimization until it’s deployed and in operation. By then, it’s too late.
