Cloud tech is evolving faster than ever and somehow you have to keep on top of it all.

New tech is introduced to solve legacy problems and typically promises speed, efficiency or cost savings. There is great value to be had with cloud native tech such as microservices, containers and infrastructure as code.

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Management Platforms

Today is a pretty big day for us here at Embotics. As you may have seen, Gartner this week released its first-ever Magic Quadrant for Cloud Management Platforms [1]. We are thrilled to see that Embotics was positioned in the leader quadrant in Gartner’s inaugural snapshot of the CMP market. It’s certainly an exciting way to kick off the new year!

We are not surprised to see Embotics named as a leader – it’s a position that each employee here works hard every day to reinforce. Some of the largest companies across the world with the most complex hybrid cloud environments rely on us to automate provisioning and enable self-service capabilities across private, public and hybrid cloud infrastructures, and this recognition goes a long way to show us we’re doing a pretty good job at it.
