A recent press release reports, “Sumo Logic, the leading cloud-native, machine data analytics service, today announced findings from a new study with UBM Technology titled “The New Normal: Cloud, DevOps and SaaS Analytics Tools Reign in the Modern App Era.” As trends like cloud computing and DevOps become the de facto standard, organizations are increasingly looking for next-generation analytics tools and services that provide continuous intelligence to help them build, run and secure modern applications, and accelerate their journey to the cloud.”
Amy Doherty, research director for UBM Technology, commented, “Trends such as cloud computing and DevOps are helping companies become more flexible and responsive to market conditions. However, as cloud computing becomes standard in IT organizations, concerns about security and loss of control persist… This new study confirms these findings and delves into best practices for how cloud-first companies are leveraging new tools and technologies to speed adoption.”
The release goes on, “Key findings of the study include: Cloud becomes de facto in IT modernization. 80 percent of enterprises surveyed are currently or plan to use at least one public cloud service. Not surprising, the top two leading services include Microsoft Azure (66 percent) and Amazon Web Services (55 percent). 67 percent are using SaaS. Enterprises are embracing new organizational models such as DevOps. 68 percent of respondents either plan to adopt DevOps practices or are already doing so on a limited or trial basis. People are more confident, but security continues to be a key challenge. 27 percent of respondents cite security as the biggest challenge related to cloud.”
