Embracing the Hybrid World in 2022

Published

on

By Milan Shetti, CEO Rocket Software

The past year has taught business leaders important lessons about managing teams and adapting to uncertainty. Across every organization, we are seeing a shift toward the world of hybrid to accommodate the need for agility and responsiveness. When I refer to hybrid, I am talking about IT infrastructure, but I am also talking about ways of working and thinking that incorporate a combination of the most effective strategies.

In 2022, hybrid will come to define more than just our cloud computing — organizations will need to understand and embrace the world of hybrid more broadly to succeed.

Hybrid cloud

For leaders in our industry, the first thing that comes to mind when we use the word hybrid is “hybrid cloud”. Hybrid cloud infrastructure will continue to be the path forward for enterprises in 2022, as monolithic tech stacks are no longer practical. Enterprises need to leverage their years of technology investments and the latest tools available to create the most effective environment for their business.

Ripping and replacing technology that has accumulated over time is not a feasible approach for businesses — it is too costly, disruptive, and time consuming. Instead, they need to integrate and connect each layer to optimize performance and modernize in place. Embracing the diversity of solutions available and enabling each layer to operate more effectively as a unified environment will provide the competitive advantage businesses need.

Hybrid work

Hybrid cloud is just the beginning of the broader trend towards a hybrid world — hybrid work structures are also here to stay. Forcing employees to fully return to the office is not going to be effective for attracting or retaining top talent, especially in competitive hiring markets, so it is up to business leaders to learn new management strategies that are tailored to a permanently hybrid workforce.

This includes operating and managing IT infrastructures that support dispersed employees and empower them to work effectively, no matter what their “office” looks like. The tools that will enable this are constantly evolving, from new collaboration and communication products to technical support and security solutions. IT leaders will need to stay at the forefront of these conversations to protect against new threats and address new challenges.

Hybrid thinking

Hybrid is more than a type of IT infrastructure or work, though, it is a way of thinking. In 2022, enterprises must prioritize shifting mindsets to execute the process changes that will enable agility. Traditionally, leaders think of themselves as decision makers who have to choose what’s best for their organization — either option A, B, or C. In the world we are heading toward, the real decisions will be based on how you can make each option work well together.

Our brains are naturally inclined to think in terms of either this or that, especially if you come from a computer science background. We create hierarchies and divisions in our minds, but we need to unlearn this way of thinking to embrace the hybrid world. Hybrid by definition means a combination of several different elements coming together. Now, we need to think in terms of interoperability, integration, and connection rather than replacement. This shift from “or” to “and” thinking will be a critical evolution throughout the coming years.

To leverage hybrid cloud, hybrid work, and hybrid thinking, leaders need to have the willingness to embrace a growth mindset in their organizations. The biggest challenges to overcome in 2022 will not be around software, hardware, or budget, but creating a culture where teams can get the best of every solution by embracing a broader hybrid world.

Fields Holdings Adds Another Retail Center in SoCal

Published

on

It’s been a big day for retail real estate in Orange County, Calif.

Commercial Observer can first report that Fields Holdings has agreed to pay $28.8 million for Palm Center, a 92,950-square-foot, grocery-anchored shopping center in the city of Orange. This deal follows the $39.5 million sale of Gateway Center in Orange County, which was also announced today. Additionally, it was announced last week that L.A.-based Fields Holdings acquired the Brentwood Shopping Center in Los Angeles for $30 million.

Colliers announced the Palm Center deal and represented the seller, Corning Development. It’s the first change in ownership since it was developed in 1971.

“The seller was Australia-based, and this was their last owned asset in the U.S.,” said Colliers’ El Warner, who brokered the deal with Charley Simpson. “After our team generated 16 offers, the property was purchased by a Los Angeles-based investor who was in a 1031 exchange from the sale of an apartment property. The buyer plans on renovating the shopping center and holding the property long-term.”

Palm Center is located on 8.1 acres at 934–970 North Tustin Street. Albertsons has been the anchor tenant for more than 30 years. Other tenants include The UPS Store, O’Reilly Auto Parts, UFC Gym, Aqua-Tots Swim Schools and America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses. Colliers said the sale represents continued demand for quality retail properties with upside in booming U.S. markets. 

“Eleven billion dollars in retail traded hands across the U.S. in November of 2021, the highest level on record in the last decade,” Warner told CO in a statement. “Demand is robust as both 1031 exchanges increased and institutional capital returned into the retail investment space.” 

He added that the pandemic proved retail’s resiliency with increased buyer demand that significantly outpaced supply, creating cap rate compression and additional competition.

“Accelerated interest and limited supply have created an incredibly bullish market for retail moving into 2022,” he said. “Under the current economic conditions, property owners willing to market an asset will see a tremendous return. Legacy properties remain extremely attractive to buyers looking to capitalize on long-term yield.”
