Cloudbolt’s latest report indicates that the industry has reached a turning point in the evolution of the cloud.

Data suggests that multicloud, multitool environments have outgrown the tools and platforms on which IT leaders currently rely. Seventy percent of them agreed that their company was hitting the wall while using their existing programs and tools to achieve cloud objectives, while 16% neither agreed nor disagreed. This means that only 8% of them can say with certainty that they are getting the value they need from the cloud, and that their cloud infrastructure will keep them competitive enough for the foreseeable future.

So, is this building a wall and preventing the best return on cloud investment?

Graphics.  To what extent do you agree with the following statement: "Understanding the full value of the cloud requires a comprehensive solution that integrates all the different platforms, tools and clouds and provides clear visibility and governance in all of them." 76% said they agreed, while 12% said they strongly agreed.

Multicloud environments have become increasingly complex and unpredictable, and there is no comprehensive visibility. As the islands of automation, sealed developer teams, tools spread and shadow IT spread, visibility decreases further. Throughout the organization, the left hand is unable to know what the right is doing.

When paused with the following statement – “My company strives to achieve broad visibility in cloud usage and spend on all resources, clouds and equipment” – 74% agreed, while 16% neither agreed nor disagreed. This means that only 10% of IT leaders were satisfied with the visibility they have in their cloud architecture.

Visibility is the key to efficiency. You can’t track, manage, or optimize what you can’t see. Without knowing what the other groups are doing, what tools they are using, or what best practices they are adopting, different groups of developers work in their own silos with their own tools and preferences, so business performance across the board Are affected, and costs out of control.

Adding more platforms and tools to the patchwork approach to keep up with new cloud demands will not get companies off the wall. Without a comprehensive framework 88% of IT leaders say they need, costs will continue to rise and innovation will stall.

For its report, CloudBolt surveyed more than 500 senior IT, devops, secops and finops leaders from major enterprises around the world.
