End-User and LOB Performance Priorities Drive IT Operations Analytics Requirements for Hybrid Cloud Management

This IDC study identifies priorities and selection criteria for IT buyers who are evaluating IT operations analytics for hybrid cloud management environments. This study is based on survey data from 201 enterprise-class IT decision makers in North America as well as selected in-depth interviews with early adopters of IT operations analytics.

"IDC's research shows that IT operations analytics will have an increasing role in the management and optimization of hybrid cloud environments over the next three years," explained Mary Johnston Turner, IDC research vice president, Enterprise System Management Software. "Because of the inherent operational complexity found in enterprise hybrid cloud environments, IT operation analytics will provide important insights to drive automation and shape decision related to workload placement, capacity optimization, and hybrid cloud architectural design."
