This IDC Perspective discusses the IBM Cloud management and governance portfolio with the goal of providing enterprise IT buyers a strategic framework for assessing how to best evaluate IBM's multicloud management capabilities and strategy. This is one of a series of documents that examines the management portfolios and road maps of major cloud management providers and hyperscale cloud service providers."IDC's research clearly shows that enterprise-class customers plan to make significant use of multicloud automation and intelligent analytics as they shift toward greater reliance on containers and public cloud services," explains Mary Johnston Turner, research vice president, Cloud Management Software at IDC. "IBM's strategy focuses on providing customers with consistent control and deployment choices across traditional IT, private clouds, the public IBM Cloud, and third-party public cloud services. IBM emphasizes the value of its reusable cloud management and governance IP made available via packaged software, cloud services, and managed services options."
