IT Cloud Management Market Landscape

In this report, Taneja Group presents an evaluation of the current IT Cloud Management market landscape for enterprise customers. We look at this landscape as an evolution of IT operations management grown up into the cloud era. In addition to increasingly smart and capable operational monitoring and systems management, good cloud management also requires sophisticated capabilities in both automation and orchestration at scale to support end-user provisioning and agility, and detailed financial management services that reveal multi-cloud costs for analysis and chargeback or showback. Our objective is to evaluate cloud management offerings from leading vendors to enable senior business and technology leaders to decide which vendors offer the best overall solution.

In this study, we evaluated vendors with offerings in one or more of the three fundamental areas. Several well-known vendors (VMware, Microsoft, ServiceNow, HPE, IBM and BMC) have solutions in all three areas. Other vendors focus on only one or two areas, and because it’s possible to compose a broader solution from parts, we’ve evaluated popular niche solutions within each area. All companies were required to have solutions that were generally available as of April 2016. To fairly assess the offerings, we looked at a set of differentiating factors in each of the categories that we believe enterprise customers should use to qualify cloud management solutions. As a final step, to facilitate optimal enterprise selection, we also evaluated the full solution vendors at a higher level where we looked at additional value derived from integrations across areas and other important enterprise vendor engagement factors.

Within each of the three areas that we will refer to as Cloud Orchestration, Operations Management, and Financial Management, and at the vendor level for full-suite vendors, we’ve applied categories of factors for scoring as determined by our team of experts, based on customer buying criteria, technical innovation, and market drivers. The overall results of the evaluation revealed that VMware has a strong lead in today’s competitive cloud management landscape.
