Research Areas

Cloud Management

Includes Cloud Infrastructure Management, encompassing Operations, Automation and Orchestration and Business/Financial Management; Virtual Infrastructure Management (monitoring, optimization and performance); Virtualized Datacenter Operations and strategies (automation and cloud computing); and Legacy Infrastructure Management.

This practice covers all forms of technologies and capabilities that impact and enable cloud and on-premises infrastructure management, including operational management; automation and orchestration; business management and cloud costing. This category also includes management of virtual infrastructure and traditional, non-virtualized on-premises environments. As on-premises infrastructure and apps transition to cloud, new management challenges arise, such as around workload mobility and migration, security and availability.

We track and examine these management challenges in the context of hybrid and multi-cloud environments, and identify opportunities for both vendors and end users to optimize their cloud management platforms and approaches.
