00:23 — There’s a cognitive load associated with a multi-cloud strategy. There’s a lot of complexity that goes into managing different cloud services, which may range from GCP to AWS and Oracle to Azure, and more.
00:57 — If you have a smaller or more junior team that’s not used to working in these different services, or with potential interoperability requirements, you might run into issues. Rather than making things more cost-effective with multi-cloud implementation, this kind of setup might end up making things more expensive because you’ll be dealing with a long tail of maintenance and costs.
01:29 — As a leader of a technology portfolio, make sure that you’ve got the team resources in place to really support a multi-cloud strategy. If you don’t, then stick with a single provider at the moment.
