Cloud Automation: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – The on-demand economy, where goods and services are immediately provisioned, is creating a paradigm change in consumer behaviour. Key factors driving the on-demand era include growing consumer demand for higher levels of customization of products and services, and rising preference for prompt and rapid delivery of services. Companies under this scenario are therefore forced to morph into agile and flexible entities capable of nimbly responding to the dynamically changing market environment and customer needs. Major offline services are rapidly moving online. Automated self-service is a ballooning trend across all service industries. The scenario is creating a dire need for business to adopt an end-to-end integrated business process system that tightly binds companies and their suppliers, partners, and customers together. Given that effective management of IT services begins both providing customers with self-service options, demand for cloud automation services and tools is rising. Cloud automation revolves around creating a self-service portal for consumers of cloud based IT services. Key benefits of cloud automation driving adoption among cloud service providers and encouraging migration to a fully automated self-service environment include ability to maximize cloud ROIs, achieve cost effective cloud processing, streamline workflow and create a hybrid environment, elimination of costs associated with human capital, and higher operational efficiency by eliminating browser-based interaction with cloud facilities.

In addition to widespread adoption among public cloud service providers to enable automated provisioning and self-service, cloud automation is being increasingly adopted by enterprises to automate private cloud infrastructure to reap true benefits from the cloud concept. “On-Demand Capacity” for instance, is the backbone of the cloud concept, which can be realized only through automation. Automation of private clouds enables companies to scale out administrative capabilities of a virtualized environment and improve operational tasks and efficiency. Automation for instance, helps companies manage their increasingly complex virtual environments by streamlining deployment of virtual machines (VMs) including approval, rejection and decommissioning VMs. This kind of automation enables sprawl prevention by curbing over-provisioning of VM inventory. The admin-to-VM ratio represents the key indicator of the efficiency of private cloud deployment. A ratio of 1:500 is considered as optimal and achievable only through the deployment of effective management and automation strategies.

As stated by the new market research report on Cloud Automation, the United States represents the single largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific and Europe are forecast to emerge as the fastest growing markets worldwide. In Europe, growth is driven by the EU government’s commitment to leverage cloud computing technologies to reduce digital inequalities and enhance digital interactions between the government and people. As more and more government data is made available online, deficit ridden European governments are focusing on cloud computing to reduce the IT expenditure of the public sector, while simultaneously ensuing the integrity of eGovernment as an enabler for better governance and provision of public services.
