Four Cloud Management Steps to Address Challenges Revealed

Cloud environments have matured enough that IT organizations now host two-thirds of their applications and infrastructure off-premises. However, a recent IDG survey shows that they aren’t getting as much value from their cloud deployments as they think they are.

The average organization is deploying workloads across multiple cloud providers and services, yet they don’t identify their environment as multi-cloud and have little or no orchestration between providers or services. As a result, they lack the necessary strategy to optimize their cloud deployments—and they’re paying for it with needless complexity and a failure to realize the full benefits that induced them to move to the cloud in the first place.

In this guide, you’ll learn the four cloud management steps to address challenges.

Yet few respondents explicitly identified themselves as having a multi-cloud strategy, defined by IDG as a network composed of multiple public cloud service providers.
