Now, IT is more complex than ever before. Your applications may reside in a mix of physical and cloud environments, provided in-house or by multiple external providers. Complexity grows as transformation changes the IT landscape and cloud transitions continue—further complicated as employees use devices, software and services completely without your knowledge. On top of this are ongoing shifts in the business environment that impact IT requirements.
