Itasca, IL - Nov 28, 2017 - Flexera, the company that’s reimagining how software is bought, sold, managed and secured, today announced an IDG Research/Flexera CIO QuickPulse poll revealing that IT execs remain extremely concerned about the visibility of applications deployed in the cloud – specifically Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) implementations. Flexera + BDNA Cloud Asset Insights is now generally available to address these concerns, as the poll revealed organizations plan to migrate more and more applications in the cloud. The challenge is that often these Bring Your Own Software License cloud migration plans don’t include cloud management, with manual processes becoming the major obstacle.
“Organizations are spending millions on software running on the cloud,” said Walker White, Vice President of Data Platform at Flexera. “Yet, many have no idea that moving their applications to the cloud often exposes them to the same security and compliance risk they faced with on-premises. IT executives are rightfully concerned. Bottom line? Without visibility into their IT assets on the cloud, companies can’t reduce those risks and make sound business decisions.”
Flexera commissioned the CIO QuickPulse poll in partnership with IDG Research, a leading global technology media, data and marketing services company. It gathered feedback from IT executives representing high tech, manufacturing (e.g., automotive, aerospace, mining, chemical, etc.), telecommunications & utilities, education, financial services, healthcare and retail. Among the poll’s findings:
To address industry concerns, Flexera + BDNA Cloud Asset Insights™ provides discovery and normalization for commercial software assets deployed on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).
Cloud Asset Insights helps address cloud management challenges often overlooked in cloud migration strategies. It provides greater insight and transparency into software asset spend, to ultimately enable better business decisions. For example, organizations often develop elaborate migration plans, without thinking about how they’ll manage those applications on the cloud after the migration. Cloud Asset Insights collects, normalizes, enriches and reports on software assets residing on Amazon EC2 instances, as well as the instance details – enabling better application management and reducing operational & financial risks.
