The trend of dining out continues to captivate Americans. In 2022, restaurant expenditures surpassed grocery shopping by 20%. However, this does not imply a surge in dine-in experiences, with 44% of consumers reportedly ordering takeout up to three times a week. This figure stretches to 57% on a global scale.

Within the “CIO’s As-a-Service playbook,” it explains how the previous consumption-oriented model of the public cloud system changed everything. However, the previous consumption-oriented model required IT to buy service and resource capacities themselves, which introduced new risks for CIOs. These limitations were identified when contrasted with the scalability and cost efficiencies of the cloud. IT wants to deliver the public cloud experience their users crave, yet some workloads cannot make that transition and must remain on-premises for many reasons.
