MarketsandMarkets has released 360 Quadrant for the best multi-cloud management platform to help businesses make quicker and more informed decisions. Ranking quadrants are generated post the analysis of companies based on product portfolios and business strategies. They will be updated every six months based on market and regional analysis and developments in the multi-cloud management industry. Out of 90 parameters, the top criteria for company evaluation were lifecycle management, cloud orchestration, infrastructure & resource management, cloud management & automation, and data security & risk management.
Multi-cloud management offers tools that enable companies to monitor and secure their processes across numerous public clouds. With the single interface, IT teams of companies can manage multi-cloud. Nowadays, companies do not use a single cloud for managing their processes and workloads. Hence, a multi-cloud management platform gives them the advantage of optimizing their cloud usage and its cost. Major benefits of multi-cloud management include in-depth visibility, security, cost management, increased availability of IT teams, and optimized processes.
