A widening cloud gap

The challenge is the widening gap between what cloud applications and lines of business (LoBs) require and what IT can reliably and confidently support today in terms of their people, processes, and tools.

The challenge is the widening gap between what cloud applications and lines of business (LoBs) require and what IT can reliably and confidently support today in terms of their people, processes, and tools.

What triggered this cloud gap in the first place?

It started with the rise of cloud applications. Supported by public cloud infrastructure and services, cloud applications were able to quickly meet the functionality requirements and speed expectations of the LoBs. But today, the vast majority of IT organizations struggle to support the new cloud-based application development models with respect to infrastructure, operations, and governance.


And what’s causing the cloud gap to continue and even widen? Growing IT complexity. The need to build more advanced applications to support new digital requirements has made the underlying infrastructure and processes more and more complex.
