New technology is often seen as a total replacement for whatever came before. This is evident in the “Move to Cloud”! However, we are almost never in a greenfield position: we must interoperate with legacy systems and the demands of the business drive towards different and competing solutions for different problems. We will discuss the challenges of a hybrid deployment, addressing multi-cloud as well as on-premises components, and how a hybrid approach to identity is required to competently address these often conflicting requirements. We will use real-world examples of hybrid solutions to demonstrate the solutions.
