Cloud is an essential component of every enterprise tech management strategy, but sifting through market noise to design a robust cloud strategy isn't easy. Despite reported high private cloud adoption, Forrester continues to see enterprises struggle with their private cloud build-out. Success with a private cloud comes only through embracing the true cloud model of self-service, full automation, and business and developer agility. But most technology managers lack enough hands-on experience with public clouds to truly understand the end user experience priorities and how to translate them to their own environments. Their focus is less on developer enablement and cloud-specific values and more on optimizing IT efficiency against tech management metrics. The result is developer rejection. This report outlines the top 10 facts every tech management pro should know about private clouds to avoid over-investment, missed deadlines, and strategies that limit better engagement with your internal customers. Plus, attendees will receive the Forrester white paper, Top 10 Facts Every Tech Management Leader Should Know About Private Cloud.Read more >
