Is Application Performance Getting Cloudy?
The journey to the cloud is well underway. With the promise of scalability, flexibility and economy, it seems like everyone has their head in the clouds today.
Given myriad options to fit various business needs—why not?
From managed or hosted private clouds, to hosted public clouds offering infrastructure (Iaas), development platforms (PaaS) or applications as a service (SaaS), cloud adoption is accelerating in enterprises on a global scale. IDC reported the cloud market size for 2014 at $50B with the SaaS market alone at $26B. Forecasts show revenues reaching $106B in 2016—that’s 21% more than the projected 2015 spend levels.
It’s clear that the cloud is a part of the enterprise future.
While the benefits are certainly accelerating the move to the cloud and increasing adoption of SaaS applications, such as Microsoft Office 365, Box and ServiceNow, the cloud is not without its challenges.
As adoption increases applications sprawl, IT has less visibility into end user experience, and a frustrating lack of control can impact application performance and ultimately, productivity.
But, the cloud doesn’t have to cast a shadow on application performance. Riverbed has paired up with Redmond Magazine to help you navigate the cloud. Join us on November 18th at 11am PT, as industry leader and founder of Techvangelism, Nick Cavalancia and Amit Datar, Sr. Director Product Management at Riverbed discuss application performance in the cloud.
