The cloud pie, worth US$146 billion in 2017, is large enough for small and mid-scale enterprises to find their own profitable niche. Success in this market depends less on having deep pockets and more on having a culture which celebrates business agility, data-driven decision-making, collaboration, and efficiency. Performance, cost, security and scalability are the primary drivers for cloud operations, especially in an IoT era where data from each device is relayed to cloud to be further combined with data from other devices, with interactions across multiple clouds. This white paper discusses how enterprises can spin up cloud applications much faster if they adopt and instill the CloudOps culture within their organizations, which extends the DevOps principles of continuous operations, monitoring, and improvement to cloud.
