With today’s IT world is increasingly hybrid, cloud-based computing has opened new opportunities for applications and services that would never have been before. The convergence of several technical and social trends has created an IT environment that presents tremendous business opportunities for companies that can harness them. As a result, competition and the risk/opportunity for radical disruption is intense.
Tight execution of IT operations that deliver the expected level of customer experience, and close cooperation between IT and line of business decision makers are critical to companies’ success in today’s highly competitive environment.
Companies that want to be able to overcome the challenges of managing their IT in a hybrid cloud world must first reach a level of awareness and be able to answer:
– What are the different forces that are driving adoption and deployment of hybrid cloud architectures?
– What are the major trends that make today the most innovative environment for business yet the most challenging to manage IT?
– Is my hybrid cloud performing as desired?
– How can I ensure the hybrid cloud is truly secure?
– What is the current state of hybrid cloud management offerings?
With IT taking a prominent role in the success of every business function, the IT organization needs to move from being a necessary supporting function to being a full partner with the business leadership. Doing so is not as easy as it sounds, it requires a system that monitors and manages application service performance, and also that communicates the appropriate performance data to the right IT, line-of-business, and C-Level stakeholders.
Instead of attempting to standardize on a single platform that captures all data and is used by all interested parties, successful systems aggregate data from best of breed monitoring systems, analyze it, and then communicate it out to the appropriate audiences.
