CIOs ‘lack tools to manage cloud datacentres’

Forrester survey reveals struggles with performance management of virtualised infrastructure

CIOs and IT managers lack the tools to properly manage the performance of their cloud and datacentre infrastructure, according to a new Forrester study.

The survey found that the merging of cloud, virtual and physical infrastructure in the datacentre is making it harder for IT to understand their end-to-end infrastructure.

But 79 per cent of the 152 European CIOs and senior IT decision makers believed that infrastructure performance management (IPM) tools could help improve their responsiveness, according to the study carried out on behalf of cloud performance management group Virtual Instruments.
