Digital disruption is here to stay, and we thrive on helping enterprise businesses learn to manage that disruption through their cloud instances — whether that’s in a public, private or a hybrid cloud environment. That’s why we are excited to announce that CenturyLink has earned Frost & Sullivan’s 2018 North American Hybrid Cloud Management Platform Product Leadership Award for Cloud Application Manager.
“To achieve product leadership is never an easy task, but it is one made even more difficult considering today’s competitive intensity, customer volatility, and economic uncertainty – not to mention the difficulty of innovating in an environment of escalating challenges to intellectual property,” said Karyn Price, senior analyst, Frost & Sullivan.
Demystifying Cloud Management
CenturyLink® Cloud Application Manager helps companies automate application deployments, scale workloads across disparate operating environments, and optimize costs over time. The platform is designed to deliver a wide variety of infrastructure options across diverse public and private cloud environments. These benefits are available in a self-service model, or one that is actively managed by CenturyLink team members.
“When we launched Cloud Application Manager, our goal was to align the three spheres of influence inside enterprise IT without obscuring the differentiating features that make certain cloud environments the best execution venue for a particular business workload,” said David Shacochis, vice president of Hybrid IT product management, CenturyLink.
“Since then, many of our customers have achieved significant operational benefits, and become more cloud-enabled across their development, operations and finance groups. We’re excited to see this type of recognition from Frost & Sullivan and look forward to helping more companies grow with our platform.”
Cloud Application Manager Helps Organizations Boost Productivity
As organizations embrace hybrid IT configurations to utilize multiple infrastructures and deployment models, CenturyLink sees hybrid cloud management as an area of clear differentiation. To optimize application deployment and minimize administrative burdens, successful enterprise cloud management requires a platform that streamlines management of the full IT environment. That’s why we launched CenturyLink Cloud Application Manager, simplifying how enterprises manage their hybrid environments. Learn more about CenturyLink’s multi-cloud management capabilities here.
