With cloud governance and a hybrid cloud approach organizations can fully realize the business agility and cost savings delivered with Enterprise Cloud Solutions and accelerate enterprise-wide cloud adoption.
Hybrid Clouds Require Effective, Centralized Governance
Today, most enterprises are faced with the challenge of managing a hybrid cloud environment. Business Unit development teams may be using resources from public cloud providers like Amazon. Production applications may be running in a private cloud, CSC BizCloud™ or one developed in house.
Cloud-based IT operating models make IT resources available on a self-service, on-demand basis all the way out to business unit end users. But cloud governance across disparate cloud environments add regulatory and compliance risk and complexity. Effective, centralized governance across a hybrid cloud environment is not only necessary, but accelerates enterprise cloud adoption and business benefit realization.
Key requirements for cloud governance that address IT concerns while delivering on the promise of business agility through self-service:
- Single control point for hybrid cloud governance
- Application-centric policies
- Policies based on an extensible meta-model
- Fine-grain policy enforcement across a hierarchical organizational model
- Policy control for software development lifecycle stages and environments
- Dynamic, declarative policies
- Comprehensive policy management framework
- Visual policy editor for non-technical staff
