Cloud Management Platform
With the emergence of cloud service providers, the Business now have alternatives to IT. The rise of cloud computing has created IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS offerings allowing vendors to directly target your users. A host of cloud services is available at the swipe of a credit card. Your Business users know what they are going to get, how much it’s going to cost, and when they are going to get it. And they no longer have to wait.
In this world, IT needs to recognize that its role has radically evolved from being the sole provider of infrastructure and applications to one where it has to compete for the Business’s business. Today’s successful enterprise IT organization must demonstrate its value as a strategic partner to its business stakeholders, delivering IT services in an agile and cost-effective manner, while ensuring the company and its data remains compliant and secure. And it must be able to source and manage those services, whether from a private, public, or hybrid cloud.
According to Gartner, Cloud Management Platforms are integrated products that provide for the management of public, private and hybrid cloud environments. Gartner has recently released the 2016 version of the Market Guide for Cloud Management Platforms: Large, Emerging and Open-Source Software Vendors.
