Research Shows the Move to Modern Multicloud Environments Has Broken Traditional Approaches to Infrastructure Monitoring
Software intelligence company Dynatrace (NYSE: DT) today announced the findings of an independent global survey of 1,300 CIOs and senior IT practitioners involved in infrastructure management. The research reveals the challenges organizations face as they overwhelmingly turn to multicloud architectures to achieve the agility and scalability needed to keep up with the pace of digital transformation. Multicloud strategies have led to a surge in complexity, with infrastructure teams drowning in data as they try to monitor and manage their constantly changing environments. As a result, teams are spending more time on manual, routine tasks, limiting their ability to accelerate innovation and highlighting the need for increased use of AI and automation. The 2022 global report "The move to multicloud environments has broken traditional approaches to infrastructure monitoring" is available for download here.
The research reveals:
"Multicloud strategies have become critical to keeping up with the rapidly accelerating pace of digital transformation, but teams are struggling to manage the complexity that these environments bring," said Bernd Greifeneder, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Dynatrace. "Dependencies are growing at an exponential pace, driven by faster deployment frequency and cloud-natve architectures that bring constant change. Open-source technologies complicate things by adding even more data for teams to deal with. Compounding the issue, each cloud service or platform has its own monitoring solution. To build a complete picture, teams are forced to manually extract insights from each solution and then piece these together with data from other dashboards. Organizations must find a way to help these teams reduce the time they spend on manual tasks and refocus on strategic work that delivers new, high-quality services for customers."
Additional findings from the report include:
"Infrastructure teams need AI-driven solutions that can automate as many of their routine, manual tasks as possible," continued Greifeneder. "With automatic, continuous discovery and instrumentation, teams can reduce manual effort while maintaining end-to-end observability across their hybrid, multicloud environments. However, observability alone isn't enough. Access to precise answers that help teams optimize their environments effectively and efficiently is also needed. Traditional approaches simply can't keep up, due to their heavy reliance on manual work. Organizations need a more intelligent approach, combining AI, automation, and end-to-end observability, to free up teams' time, and enable them to focus on speeding innovation and optimizing user experiences."
The report is based on a global survey of 1,300 CIOs and senior IT practitioners involved in infrastructure management in large enterprises with more than 1,000 employees, conducted by Coleman Parkes and commissioned by Dynatrace. The sample included 200 respondents in the U.S., 100 in Latin America, 600 in Europe, 250 in Asia Pacific, and 150 in the Middle East.
