Arthur Cole at IT Business Edge included Embotics sponsored Ponemon study findings in his article, “DevOps, Automation and the Cloud.”
"A separate study by the Ponemon Institute on behalf of Embotics offers a deeper view on the challenges of automating a DevOps environment on top of a hybrid cloud. In a survey of more than 600 IT leaders, the report shows a distinct lack of confidence in the ability to manage both cost and risk on public cloud infrastructure even as the importance of DevOps and the development of a container-based microservice infrastructure are seen as critical needs going forward. This led researchers to conclude that the key inhibiting factor of cloud-based DevOps workflows is not a desire on the part of IT but a lack of tools and skillsets to make it happen."
