The use of multiple clouds increases the need for management technologies at every stage
A new survey carried out by 451 Research on behalf of Embotics® has found that there is increasing use of third-party clouds, and that ‘Amazon + 1’ is becoming the CIO’s organizing principle as 75% of companies surveyed say they are now using more than one cloud environment. In order to manage these efficiently, a cloud management platform (CMP) is becoming a business imperative, not an option.
The survey of 166 enterprise IT organizations regarding their use of cloud
infrastructure and the management and automation of the associated processes and technologies revealed several key findings including:
64% of companies surveyed are constantly challenged with the management and tracking of digital and virtual assets.
74% surveyed say users expect faster provisioning times and complain that response and turnaround time is too slow.
87% of survey respondents say their existing management tools lack the ability to show how VMs are being utilized over time.
