Striking a balance in DevOps optimization
As you know, cloud comes with pros and cons. On the one hand, cloud is a fantastic tool for keeping up with business requirements without the delays and complexity of manual infrastructure provisioning. The cloud makes it easy to self-provision, and your organization probably relies on that flexibility to accelerate time to market.
On the other hand, all that self-provisioning can wreak havoc on budget management and security requirements. Without some controls, you might find yourself in an IT “Wild West” where anything goes—and you’re left footing the bill.
As you also know, too much control stifles innovation. You need to strike a balance between a free-for-all and rigid, centralized control. Optimization can play a key role in finding this balance. Your job is to discover and support your organization's cloud use cases. Providing approved resources—workflows, templates, and service catalogs—gives your users the speed and flexibility they need, while giving you a framework for controlling spending.
Your data fabric gives you the best of both worlds. It helps optimize your workloads and data to keep operations lightning-fast while filling your CFO with glee.
