The Opportunity for Autonomy in a Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service-Centric IT Environment
These event proceedings were presented at the IDC Directions conferences in Santa Clara and Boston in March 2019.
The pace of innovation in the cloud infrastructure landscape shows no signs of peaking; providers continue to update portfolios and introduce new services. Overlaid on this fast-changing offering landscape are emerging patterns of cloud adoption — such as multicloud environments and hybrid cloud environments. While this richness creates choices and optimization opportunities, it also introduces new complexities — like securing an everexpanding boundary, taking advantage of granular scalability, and detecting island resources. One approach to addressing this complexity is through advanced automation — leveraging machine learning and autonomous decision-making frameworks. Deepak Mohan discusses the expanding areas where autonomous operations are being applied in an infrastructure-as-a-service-centric IT environment and the ways in which autonomous frameworks can increase agility and trust in a cloud infrastructure-centric enterprise IT world.
