Move to the cloud, they said.

Cloud computing has become such a central part of most enterprises that it’s become easy to forget what drove the rush to the cloud in the first place. More than a decade ago, the idea of the cloud may have been a nightmare for the IT staff that was going to have to manage a paradigm shift, but it was a dream for those holding the purse strings. The promise of the cloud was always about finding ways to stretch budgets and save costs.
Let’s face it – the role of IT just isn’t what it used to be. Many modern organizations are already undergoing the transformation, transitioning to our new normal – hybrid IT.
Today’s organizations all have some combination of public or multi-cloud, on-prem virtualization, SaaS, colocation, edge, industrial IOT, and bring-your-own-device. While every organization may not have each and every one, it's highly likely that it will have some sort of combination of them.
While many IT leaders may still have five-year strategic plans in place to accelerate digital transformation efforts and implement a DevOps strategy, there is constant pressure on them to speed up the process.

The cloud management industry has undergone a pretty radical shift in recent years. Here at Embotics, we like to think that we’ve taken a leading role in the industry in pushing cloud management platforms forward. You may recall our announcement last year when we launched the first the industry’s first truly next-generation cloud management platform – one built for automation, orchestration and governance of both traditional and new microservice-based applications while facilitating DevOps.
Here in 2019, there can be no mistaking the fact that cloud growth is explosive.
Coupled with similar growth in big data analytics and the adoption Saas-based business application and services, the industry has been making dramatic leaps and bounds in the right direction in terms of transforming the underlying application architecture.
The way enterprises use the cloud is changing. Next-generation applications, built and delivered using DevOps methodology, are moving to the cloud. These virtual environments continue to evolve as enterprises move IT to the cloud, enabling the scalability and flexibility of on-demand resources. But with this next generation comes the need for increased security as many of these applications are not only complex, but can potentially have different types of security issues ranging from misconfigured servers to bad code.
Being a cloud administrator is hard work.
And if you’re reading this, I probably don’t have to tell you that.
More and more, end users rely on computing resources and services to do their jobs effectively – which can be a challenge (not to mention a time-suck) for system administrators.

Earlier this year, Embotics teamed up with the Ponemon Institute on a survey looking at enterprise priorities for hybrid cloud management. The purpose of that research was to understand the opportunities, challenges, costs and risks companies experience as they manage their public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures and emerging application container environments.

A few weeks ago, we announced the results of a survey conducted by the Ponemon Institute. The survey looked at the responses of more than 600 IT leaders responsible for cloud management within their organizations and led to some interesting findings about the gap between their expectations around the value of DevOps, containers and microservices and their organizations’ current enablement capabilities.
