Are You Ready to Make the Most of Cloud?

A key driver in today’s digital transformation (DX) is Cloud computing. Digital transformation is impacting every sector, from retail to financial services, manufacturing to heavy industry. And as a result of the Cloud, new digital-centric businesses are emerging that are far more agile and innovative than anything seen before. Enterprises are increasingly facing disruption from new, more nimble competitors, while at the same time having to deal with large scale upheaval of their business model. The gauntlet has been thrown - disrupt or be disrupted.

Making Transformative Change

Making transformative change is all the more difficult for many enterprises due to legacy systems and applications that cannot be virtualized and migrated to the Cloud, as well as a growing demand from customers for flawless and ceaseless delivery of services. Adding to the challenge, some enterprises face governance, compliance, and regulatory (GRC) requirements which necessitate digital assets staying on-premises. In short, the road ahead is far more complicated than simply migrating infrastructure and applications to the Cloud.

What does this mean for IT?  The transition to Cloud must be managed carefully to ensure service continuity. In a highly-demanding digital world where slow is the new off, delivering uninterrupted, secure, high-performance services that delight end-users is often the difference between success and failure.

Your IT teams face a tough challenge. Your complex, high-speed hybrid Cloud infrastructure may not be ready for new applications and services if it lacks sufficient instrumentation needed to monitor service performance end-to-end. The vast interdependencies across the entire service stack, including applications, networks, compute, service enablers and databases, along with the introduction of new technologies, could stress it beyond the breaking point.

Service Assurance for Hybrid Cloud: An Enterprise Necessity

Since services are at the very heart of disruptive innovation, service assurance is critical, especially when deployed in hybrid Cloud environments. One of the key objectives of migrating workloads to public Cloud is for the business to become more agile and continuously accelerate the delivery pipeline. This agility marks the difference between winners and losers in this highly competitive business environment.  While automation offers tremendous benefits for continuous delivery, it shifts the constraint to the production environment that now determines the overall flow of the value stream to customers. Service assurance helps operations mitigate this risk and reduce mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) with a higher level of business efficiency, allowing development teams to fix any application issues they encounter at the source, and help operations to address performance issues before they become problems for the end-user.
