This IDC study assists senior IT leaders in assessing the current state of their hybrid cloud management processes, governance models, technologies, and skills to identify gaps and create a road map for better aligning the organization's management model and tools with the emerging needs of complex, dynamic self-service hybrid cloud environments. This IDC MaturityScape identifies five maturity stages for hybrid cloud management based on a set of specific people, process, and technology dimensions and outcomes. The document provides actionable guidance to senior IT decision makers and line-of-business stakeholders who are tasked with ensuring that their organization is effectively embracing cloud-based innovation.
"As the use of hybrid cloud solutions increases, both business and IT leaders recognize that the success of their business depends on finding ways to take full advantage of cloud innovation while ensuring consistent service levels, load testing, patching, security, data management, and user experiences," explains Mary Johnston Turner, IDC research vice president, Enterprise Systems Management Software.
