(LSJ) Seven critical capabilities for success of Cloud management Platform (CMP)

According Gartner, Cloud management platform (CMP) solutions are advisable to support the management of multi cloud deployments and avoid under management.

By 2021, 75% of organizations without Cloud Management tooling to manage their multicloud environments will spend more than they would have had they stayed on-premises, and will also lack needed policy and governance capabilities, increasing the likelihood of security and/or compliance exposures.

Gartner has identified seven capabilities critical to the success of the use cases commonly involved in this endeavor (see Note 1):

  • Provisioning and orchestration

  • Inventory and classification

  • Service requests

  • Monitoring and analytics

  • Manage costs and optimize resources

  • Cloud migration, disaster recovery (DR) and backup

  • Identity, security and compliance

The common use cases are:

  • Agile applications

  • Reliable applications

  • Lift-and-shift data center

  • Strategic DevOps transformation
