Ensuring continuity for business-critical applications in the cloud
As business-critical applications head to the cloud, managing them has become an issue. To control costs and ensure good user experience, organizations should consider outsourcing application management.
The average large enterprise now has around 1,295 applications running in the cloud, many of which are business critical. There are now viable strategies and cloud services for almost any mission-critical workloads, according to 451 Research. The primary hurdles to migrating these critical applications to the cloud are predominantly organizational, and companies need to establish detailed planning and deployment for each specific scenario.
As an organization moves more and more of its critical workloads to the cloud, management also becomes unavoidably more complex. This is probably why 60% of IT leaders in a recent survey by Frost & Sullivan said they had adopted managed cloud services to help them get the most value from their applications. Only 3% of IT leaders said they do not think they will ever use managed cloud services.
