This IDC Perspective discusses the Google Cloud management and governance portfolio with the goal of providing enterprise IT buyers with a strategic framework for assessing how to best incorporate Google Cloud's management and governance capabilities into their organization's broader multicloud management and IT operations strategies. This is one of a series of documents that examines the management portfolios and road maps of major hyperscale public cloud infrastructure providers."IDC's research clearly shows that enterprise class customers plan to make significant use of multicloud environments. They want to manage the cost, security, performance, and governance of these multicloud resources on a consistent basis," explains Mary Johnston Turner, research vice president, Cloud Management Software at IDC. "Google Cloud's launch of Anthos, a container and Kubernetes-based multicloud control platform, moves the needle. Google can now offer customers access to sophisticated cloud-native management capabilities as well as the basic IaaS management tools expected from any public cloud provider."
