GlobalData has also brought into the spotlight our growing partner ecosystem in the report.

This ecosystem is strengthening our appeal to enterprises by offering them effective management for hybrid and multicloud environments.

GlobalData’s findings also show that our investment in intelligent automation, AIOps and professional development in support of third-party partner clouds is bringing results. These services help organizations that want to manage workloads across diverse environments.
Organizations are increasingly acknowledging our cloud expertise to provide them with greater business agility, scalability, security and application availability. At the same time, we can also help them simplify operations and better balance workloads in the cloud, as proven by the Amcor case.
