  EMA Analyst's Corner

by Julie Craig, EMANavigating a Hybrid World: Best Practices of a True Hybrid IT Management Approach

by Julie Craig, Research Director, Application Management

As the leader of EMA's application management practice, I recognized the impact of cloud computing on application performance management (APM) as far back as 2011.

Today, the terms "hybrid cloud" and "hybrid IT" describe the types of services that were on the horizon back in 2011. And although application architectures and designs have evolved since 2011—more than 50% of today's companies have already deployed applications running in hybrid cloud environments— the same basic problem is as real today as it was six years ago. Many IT organizations are unprepared to manage applications running, in whole or in part, on the public cloud.
