Organizations are realizing that without a formal comprehensive cloud strategy, line of business and application architects will continue to sidestep their internal IT organizations and procure solutions on their own – an industry phenomenon known as “rogue IT” which happens out of necessity. While it helps solve the immediate problem, it brings with it a host of complications – compliance, governance, financial, security and more.
A formal cloud strategy helps ease cloud service adoption, drives standardization of services and increases the value of IT to the business. For all these reasons, cloud is now considered a core element in many enterprise IT portfolios.
Yet for all the strategizing and trial steps taken by organizations, only a small number of companies have implemented true private clouds. This is because automation is challenging but not as challenging as maintaining the manual and siloed methods used to manage the data center today.
People need deeper knowledge about automation. They have to understand the types of automation available. They want clear insight into the short-term and future impact of automation decisions made today so that they can create the right strategy for their business and select the appropriate automation methods and technologies to support their strategy. Without the right tools and approaches to automation adoption, most organizations experience pain and chaos.
