Leveraging Cloud-Based Analytics to Make IT Smarter: A Guest Commentary in Datamation

Posted by thinkstrategies in Uncategorized. Comments Off on Leveraging Cloud-Based Analytics to Make IT Smarter: A Guest Commentary in Datamation

20th August

Like the old adage goes – you can’t manage what you can’t measure. And, many IT organizations have to do a better job measuring KPIs in the rapidly evolving Cloud environment to ensure they’re obtaining optimal benefits from the widening array of virtual services. Continuity Software conducted a benchmark survey in 2013 of 90 IT executives from a variety of large enterprises that found over half (57%) use analytical tools to measure IT performance. Yet, only 14% track key performance indicators (KPIs) for their Cloud environment. Click here to read THINKstrategies’ views in Datamation about how IT can overcome these management issues by taking advantage of a new generation of Cloud-based analytics solutions.
