Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Virtualization Management Maturity Study Lack of Management Brings Failing Promises in Virtualization

This IDC study provides a snapshot of the readiness of enterprises in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan), or APEJ, region toward implementing an efficient and automated virtualized environment. The analysis is supported by findings of the IDC Asia/Pacific Software Survey 2011, where the result is being compared with a similar survey conducted in the United States, in order to show where APEJ enterprises stand on the virtualization management maturity road map.

The booming virtualized environments are rapidly increasing the amount of workload as well as the new challenges in IT management. Failing to address these challenges properly with good IT practices and by investing in management tools will, however, hinder enterprises to achieve cost-saving goals and productivity improvement, says Sheila Lam, senior market analysts at Enterprise Infrastructure Group, IDC Asia/Pacific. The lack of proper and automated tools will serve as a barrier to a stable foundation from which enterprises can grow and move forward in their cloud computing journey.
