Before jumping into an AI strategy, organizations need to ensure that their architecture can support AI applications, and that means modernizing that underlying architecture.

I’m not going to postulate as to why organizations decide to repatriate. But I will point out that only those who have invested in modernizing their applications and operations on-premises are really doing so.  

I’ve pointed out the link between SRE practices and cloud repatriation before. Our tenth annual State of Application Strategy research will again demonstrate that link remains strong. Organizations that have already or plan to repatriate workloads have two things in common: a mostly modern application portfolio and established SRE practices for operations. In other words, they’ve modernized apps and ops and therefore can repatriate.

What’s really interesting about repatriation is that organizations are not dumping the cloud. Far from it. They are maintaining a healthy presence in the cloud; they are simply being more deliberate about which applications live in their increasingly multi-cloud estate. Either way, the data is clear: Organizations are settling on hybrid as the norm.

Do you know what else is linked to SRE operations? Yes, operating hybrid applications.

The link is startlingly obvious. Of those running hybrid applications — that is, applications whose components are distributed across multiple cloud properties — 41% have already adopted SRE practices. A mere 7% operating hybrid applications have not done so. The rest are planning to, and soon. […]
