Breaking Down Siloes With IT Operations Management

No business operates solely on-premises anymore. And even with cloud adoption reaching new heights, businesses aren't solely relying on those platforms, either. Instead, we're seeing operations spread across on-prem and cloud, in addition to edge environments and more. But with data being shared and transferred across these different platforms, productivity can take a hit if organizations have them operating in siloes.

Multi-cloud and multi-premises will continue to dominate the IT reality in 2020. The pervasive use of IT across departments within organizations is forcing IT siloes to break down, resulting in tech pros from different teams needing to work together to support business objectives like productivity and performance. Add to this the challenge of managing highly distributed and multi-environment applications and infrastructures, and the path ahead for tech pros can appear increasingly daunting.

As businesses evolve, tech pros are tiring of the proliferation of "best of breed" tools from different vendors and are instead looking toward integrated solutions to give them the ability to manage environments inside their firewall and hybrid and public-cloud environments. Visibility needs to be centralized to support modern, multi-cloud, and multi-premises architectures, with an integrated view showing dependencies and relationships between applications and the infrastructure on which they depend. Only then can tech pros understand performance metrics across the business while also having the ability to speak a common IT language and bridge previously siloed functions.
