Are organisations holding back from making use of cloud services due to lack of understanding and reassurance?
By ECM Plus staff
ECM Plus +++ New research by IT firm Intergence Systems has found that companies are often reluctant to migrate to the cloud when there are still on-going security and management concerns around data management.
According to Intergence, cloud-based services are expanding but are also frequently viewed with suspicion, particularly for reasons such as data governance and security.
Intergence said it now believes that visualisation is the first step to creating trust within the cloud. By providing better tools to track resource usage and troubleshoot issues, any company within the cloud can begin to have confidence in their ability to respond to issues as they arise.
The company said that with more resources moving to the cloud, keeping a close eye on the more nebulous parts of the network is becoming difficult for IT managers and CIOs. Visualisation can assist in troubleshooting and checking performance which can prove especially useful in cases where companies suspect a security breach.
“Today’s I.T. infrastructure is complicated and this complexity is increasing. More and more devices are becoming IP enabled, virtualisation and cloud computing have become mainstream, and data rates are exploding,” said Stace Hipperson. “While virtualisation increases ROI, it also increases complexity and makes capacity management even more important. Your business runs on its I.T. infrastructure, so you need to fix issues as soon as they emerge and become proactive with the issues that may arise in the future. During this webinar we will show how visualisation can be used in real world situations to enable you to make better, quicker decisions.”
