How CIOs Can Reduce Cloud Costs and Ensure Global IP Address Management

Enterprises face new challenges managing and securing Hybrid cloud automation initiative while controlling costs.

Gartner estimates that organizations that have done little or no cloud cost optimization are overspending by 70% or more. In fact, it is not uncommon for Gartner to receive inquires from clients who are spending two to three times more than what was initially budgeted.

Central management of DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management (DDI) is often overlooked as cloud and automation are usually initiated by newly formed cloud and automation teams.

Key Challenges
  • Organizations that manage cloud costs from an IT perspective only have little visibility as to the degree of the cost impact on the overall business.
  • The cloud has helped businesses improve costs in customer acquisition and customer service, reach new markets, push out new products, and minimize procurement and supply chain costs. However, without cost optimization, they could be overspending by more than 70%.
  • Innovation enablement and agility are important reasons cloud use is growing; however, central IT in most organizations has made little investment in learning how to extract this value.
  • If the promises of innovation and the cloud come to fruition, then organizations' costs will go up; however, they are ill-prepared to explain "why their cloud costs went up."
  • Lack of skill sets and experience with planning structures, poor automation tool choices, and cultural resistance have caused organizations to be dissatisfied with automation capabilitie
Ensure your Network Vendors Provide Agile Innovation

Newer generation vendors provide advantages that incumbents cannot research has found that Incumbent Vendors need to lookout for their own interests before customers

To support digital business, infrastructure and operations leaders responsible for networking must transform their data center networks from fragile to agile

Key Challenges
  • Enterprise networking teams rely heavily on established network vendors for guidance regarding network operations.
  • Established networking vendors present themselves as trusted advisors to their enterprise clients; however, they have not guided customers toward dramatic operational improvements, particularly in the data center.
  • Networking vendors often market their products to the enterprise as “highly innovative,” but the innovations have not delivered dramatic improvements in network operations.
  • Cultural issues in enterprise network teams, including risk avoidance and rigid change management practices, have led to manual processes and the use of command line interface as the primary configuration tool. This makes it difficult for enterprises to operate at the speed that digital business demands.

If you're dependent on one of legacy DDI vendors, your DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management system may very well be running out of gas.
