Cloud adoption has been accelerating for years—and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. The IDC predicts that more than $1.3 trillion will be spent on cloud worldwide by 2025.
However, as your business—and the number of tools you use—grows, it’s easy to acquire too much of a good thing.
Cloud sprawl happens when your organization amasses too many disparate or duplicate cloud services. It creates not only a major management headache for IT, but also leads to rising costs and reduced visibility into the full cloud ecosystem. That lack of insight is particularly dangerous, since it opens your company up to data silos and security risks.
But cloud sprawl can be prevented. It just requires a carefully planned migration using the right tools.
