Infrastructure and operations leaders face a rapidly changing cloud management platform market as they attempt to manage private, public and hybrid cloud services. This research defines the cloud management platform market and provides guidance for acquisition and usage.
Key findings in the report include:
- The cloud management platform (CMP) market is fragmented and rapidly changing, with no vendor having dominant market share.
- Enterprises that are successful in implementing CMPs for multicloud management and policy enforcement are early technology adopters, with technical expertise, mature processes and centralized governance, and have been successful in combining CMPs with other tooling (often homegrown).
- CMPs are focused on solving different management challenges, thus the breadth of service offerings and the integration into platforms vary widely between solutions.
