Overview

No one wants to be locked into a particular platform or cloud. What is more, enterprises value the freedom of deploying and managing applications in environments that are determined because of business requirements, rather than artificial constraints. After all, applications remain the means by which business value is realized. As a result, management and orchestration of applications have become increasingly important in a multicloud world. With the right cloud-management solution, enterprise IT can take complete advantage of multicloud environments, while retaining the flexibility to make changes as demands and new technology dictate.
