Organizations face challenges as they overwhelmingly turn to multicloud architectures to achieve the agility and scalability needed to keep up with the pace of digital transformation. Also, infrastructure teams drowning in data as they try to monitor and manage their constantly changing environments, according to Dynatrace‘s 2022 global report ‘The move to multicloud environments has broken traditional approaches to infrastructure monitoring’. As a result, teams are spending more time on manual, routine tasks, limiting their ability to accelerate innovation and highlighting the need for increased use of AI and automation.
The research reveals that 99% of organizations have a multicloud environment, with the average spanning 5 different platforms. These include Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Red Hat, and others. Also, organizations rely on 7 different infrastructure monitoring solutions, on average, to manage multicloud environments, and 57% say this makes it difficult to optimize infrastructure performance and resource consumption.
Moreover, 81% of IT leaders say their use of Kubernetes has made their infrastructure more dynamic and challenging to manage, and 56% of IT leaders say traditional infrastructure monitoring solutions are no longer fit for purpose in a world of multiple clouds and Kubernetes.
“Multicloud strategies have become critical to keeping up with the rapidly accelerating pace of digital transformation, but teams are struggling to manage the complexity that these environments bring,” said Bernd Greifeneder, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Dynatrace.
