Cloud computing offers organizations the opportunity to increase competitiveness and improve agility. This is why organizations in all industry verticals are turning to public cloud solutions to accelerate innovation, expand market reach, and drive down IT costs. However, embracing the public cloud presents challenges. Enterprises want to exploit the public cloud's benefits, but they also need to ensure the same level of security, governance, and control that they have with their on-premises and private cloud infrastructure. To expand confidently to the public cloud, enterprises need best practices that apply the right number of guardrails - while still empowering users such as DevOps with the innovation and agility that the cloud delivers.
