Back in the 1960s and 1970s, the technology ecosystem in any enterprise centered around single-purpose applications running on a standalone computer or mainframe.

From that time, we have witnessed the growing complexity of integrated enterprise systems as software application got embedded into every business process and workflow.

Cut to the 2020s, and global enterprises are facing multiple challenges with their exploding technology stacks. Businesses are reporting that their IT operational costs have tripled since the 2000s, and application outages have increased by 800%.

As enterprises add more layers to their tech stack, they need more expertise to manage the new tools (along with maintaining the existing system). This can impact overall productivity and increase operational overhead.

What is increasing the complexity of the enterprise tech ecosystem? Let’s discuss that next.

What Is Increasing the Complexity of the Enterprise Technology Ecosystem?

A common problem is linked to the cloud move. As more enterprises move their application workloads to the cloud platform, they expect a seamless transition that can improve performance at lower costs. However, the ground reality is much different. Cloud-powered enterprise systems are growing more complex every year.

have found that IT teams are spending one-third of their time dealing with performance-related issues. This is costing employers around $3.3 million every year. Besides that, 44% of CIOs are unable to manage their IT performance, which is posing an existential threat to their business.

What is driving the complexity of modern cloud environments? Here are some factors:

  • The growing complexity of modern enterprise-level applications
  • The emergence of hybrid multi-cloud ecosystems that are running these applications
  • Lack of integration of cloud-native applications (built on different platforms) with legacy systems

Effectively, cloud migration does not eliminate technology endpoints, including servers, database systems, and applications. This is adding to IT complexity as cloud environments (public, private, hybrid) need to integrate with the existing legacy systems.

Another core issue is the gradual dwindling of enterprise architects, often in favor of cloud specialists and architects who are trained to use the specific technology that best fits the organizational requirements. Think cloud ERP specialists or data scientists who perform important, but siloed roles within organizations.

Despite multiple cloud benefits, organizations find it challenging to manage their cloud architecture on their own. To address these challenges, companies need professional guidance on how to transform their cloud IT architecture.

An enterprise technology partner can design an effective IT strategy to enhance their bottom line and their return on investment. Besides, they can help in reducing the complexity of any enterprise technology ecosystem.

Let’s discuss how in the next section.

How an Expert Enterprise Technology Partner Can Help in Reducing IT Complexity

According to Statista, the cloud system IaaS segment is expected to grow by 30.5% in 2023. As more IT workloads move to the cloud computing platform, cloud service providers can deliver value by:

  • Securing the IT ecosystem
  • Optimizing the customer experience
  • Reducing IT complexity

However, even as the cloud help in optimizing costs, vendor lock-in is a concern for many organizations. Companies don’t want to partner with uncompetitive cloud providers who are unable to scale up their resources for growing business needs.

Customers are also looking for an efficient cloud management strategy from their technology partner. Here is how a partner tech company can help in reducing cloud-related complexity:

1. Optimizing Cloud Costs

Cost management is a significant factor when adopting and migrating to the cloud platform. A technology partner helps in optimizing cloud costs by:

  • Preparing an accurate cost estimate for the entire project
  • Overseeing the project budget using a centralized team
  • Improving cost analytics and reporting

2. Managing the Multi-Cloud IT Environment

IT teams often need to address the complexities of a multi-cloud environment. Cloud service providers can overcome this challenge by deploying tools for cloud-based automation, automatic scaling, and cost management. They can also train your existing staff to work efficiently in a multi-cloud setup.

3. Preventing Vendor Lock-In

To prevent lock-in with any vendor or service, cloud service providers must integrate their client’s cloud resources with their on-premises environment. This enables companies to move in (and out) of the cloud premises without any interoperability issues.

4. Addressing the Shortage of Cloud Talent and Skills

A 2020 PwC survey found that 32% of companies rank the shortage of cloud talent as a major challenge. With the expertise of a cloud technology partner, companies can develop a Cloud Centre of Excellence (COE) to develop the cloud skills of their employees. This COE team can help in:

  • Researching the best cloud solutions that fit the business requirements.
  • Choosing the right cloud model.
  • Implementing the best cloud solutions.


Cloud technology is becoming crucial for achieving optimum business performance in any industry domain. However, cloud adopters can easily complicate their IT ecosystem with challenges in cloud management and implementation. A technology partner skilled in cloud services can facilitate companies to gain business value from their cloud investments.
