EBook Overview

Moving from established monolithic applications to a more agile cloud computing architecture can be an important way to address enterprise business requirements without also making it necessary or even wise to move IT functions into a cloud service provider's data center. Adopting a hybrid on-premise/off-premise computing environment using some services offered by cloud service providers may be the most practical approach going forward.

The hybrid approach, however, often means that the enterprise reconsider both its IT and data center strategies. A cloud service provider may be much better at creating and supporting some applications, application components or offer computing and storage at a lower cost. Enterprises will learn that other functions are best addressed by in-house IT solutions.

This indicates a need for intelligent, cloud-focused tools to monitor and gather operational data, analyze that data and provide the needed evidence for the provider's support team.
