In a recent blogpost, my colleague Scott McNeil wrote about how hard it is for organizations in today’s fast paced market to maintain and manage the complexity and volatility of their hybrid application and IT infrastructure.
IT modernization is all about being flexible to meet the present and future demands of your business, so choosing a Multicloud and/or Hybrid Cloud Management solution is a critical success factor but no easy task.
This challenge is well understood by industry experts. A great example is the latest work by OVUM, a market-leading research and consulting business. Their new Decision Matrix: “Selecting a Multicloud and Hybrid Cloud Management Solution 2018-2019” provides solid guidance.
The Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM) provides a side-by-side comparison and evaluation of management solutions and vendors, supported by rigorous analysis:
10 dimensions of technology assessment
6 dimensions in execution assessment
4 dimensions on market impact
Some of the highlights, as they relate to Oracle Management Cloud, in the report:
Oracle recorded strong scores in the execution and market impact dimensions, where it was above the dimension average. However, it was in the technology dimension where it was above average in all categories
Oracle was the most open of all the vendors, supporting more than 10 different virtualization technologies
Oracle's strength comes from being able to monitor at different levels, from the base infrastructure to the abstracted container
Oracle scored above average in 17 out of 20 categories evaluated, two were category leading
If you have been following our monthly releases of Oracle Management Cloud, you know by now that we are introducing innovations in SaaS-based management at a phenomenal pace. It is no wonder that Oracle Management Cloud was selected by Ovum as a leader in this space. I would recommend the Ovum Decision Matrix if:
You are an existing Oracle customer with investments in database and applications technologies in your own data centers as well as Oracle’s Cloud Platform and Infrastructure.
You are new to Oracle and have a heterogeneous IT environment composed of Open Source and proprietary technologies.
Your IT assets run on multiple cloud providers such as Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure and you are still looking for that single pane of glass for your security and management objectives.
