Forrester Report: Q4 2016
Infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals look to cloud computing services to enable flexibility and scalability for agile applications, but many fear vendor lock-in. Without standardization, applications, products, and entire businesses are vulnerable to the success and decisions of a single vendor. Standards development organisations (SDOs), market leaders, and open source solutions are creating defacto standards that together influence overall cloud standards.
This report examines the current state of cloud standards as well as future projections so I&O pros can make informed cloud strategy decisions.
