The shift to the cloud is changing how companies think about their IT infrastructure and what they must do to manage it. The on-demand applications and services that comprise a cloud services network enable companies to rapidly deploy powerful capabilities to a broad set of users at very low costs. However, they also introduce challenges associated with securing and controlling users and access, simplifying adoption and scaling of these applications, and providing insight into utilization to ensure the business is optimizing its cloud investments. Okta’s on-demand identity management service enables companies to address these challenges head-on by being designed from the ground up as a scalable, secure, multi-tenant service that protects your data through centralized access control.

As the corporate landscape becomes increasingly mobile, and workers collaborate across a growing range of devices, organizations are implementing an agile and secure unified communications infrastructure. Active deployment of UC technology solutions has been on the rise among enterprises; however, adoption among midsize businesses has been notably slower. Yet in seeking ways to do more with less, midsize organizations are increasingly turning to the cloud and converged networks to provide UC solutions. In October 2013, Cisco commissioned Forrester Consulting to dive deeper into the current usage trends and perceptions of unified communications among midsize organizations (100 to 999 employees) across North America, Asia, and Europe.

Cloud computing adoption continues to expand as the overall benefits of cloud (cost efficiency, self-service, and IT standardization) are becoming more broadly recognized. While private cloud is the primary type of cloud infrastructure that is in use today, organizations are finding that cloud can no longer be a standalone IT sourcing and consumption model. Enterprises demand greater flexibility and scalability, leading them to invest in hybrid cloud models, which supply them with a seamless application, data, and management environment across all of their IT resources. IDC expects that the percentage of users who adopt private or public cloud models will diminish over the next several years, as enterprises increasingly choose to implement a hybrid cloud model.

Most companies are have decided they need the business agility and the cost savings that come when moving to the cloud with nearly 90 percent of businesses having adopted the cloud in some capacity. But with the bewildering amount of contradictory opinions and information floating around on the Internet, not many understand exactly what that means or what it entails. Companies considering Microsoft Office 365 as their first step in moving applications to hosted solutions face similar inconsistencies, making it difficult to separate fact from fiction. For example, some businesses incorrectly believe Office 365 is simply a version of Office accessed by a browser. Astonishing right!

As more enterprises adopt technologies such as cloud, mobile, and analytics to help achieve strategic competitive advantage, CIOs and IT managers must support business-critical processes at a very high level across the enterprise. At the same time, IT organizations must manage complex hybrid IT infrastructures that include both cloud and on-premises technologies from multiple vendors and support providers. IDC believes that to tackle these challenges, IT organizations should look to support providers for comprehensive offerings to help optimize IT operations and improve the efficiency of IT service delivery. In addition, IDC recommends that IT organizations looking to manage rapid change in today’s IT landscape consider support providers with a record of innovative support services and a focus on advanced technology in support delivery.

Cloud adoption is an expanding part of IT organizations’ strategies, and IT architects are growing more sophisticated in how they think about cloud; however, as of early 2015, relatively few organizations have truly advanced levels of cloud maturity. In IDC’s recent worldwide CloudView Survey, we discovered that nearly 60% of organizations are currently using or planning to implement some form of cloud — whether for a single project or their portfolio, for test/development environments, or to run mission-critical applications 24 x 7 — but only 25% have reached the level that IDC would call “mature”— that is, building repeatable, managed, or optimized cloud strategies. There is significant room for improvement.

Research from leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has evidenced strong and growing interest in cloud deployment models. While public cloud has gotten the earliest attention, stronger adoption is happening within private and hybrid models. In the EMA April 2014 report “Managing Networks in the Age of Cloud, SDN, and Big Data Network Management Megatrends 2014,” over 50% of respondents reported public/hybrid cloud initiatives were driving network management priorities. Since 2012, cloud projects have moved from early adopter status to mainstream business initiatives, and their impact on network management grew from 36% in 2012 to over 50% in 2014.
