In nature, hybridization is a force that allows organisms to adapt to changing circumstances. It's a hardwired defense to a dynamic and unpredictable world, which makes living things stronger and more resilient to change. The same is true in the world of cloud computing. Unlike organisms, which change slowly over time, clouds need to adapt almost instantaneously. Like the strongest organism, clouds must be encoded with adaptive structures that allow for flexibility to changing technical and business circumstances. That's why, whether you know it or not, you're bound for a hybrid future.
