ITASCA, Ill., Feb. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flexera, the company that helps organizations realize technology’s power to accelerate their business, today announces the findings of the RightScale 2019 State of the Cloud Report. In its eighth year, the RightScale 2019 State of the Cloud Report from Flexera is the leading survey of corporate cloud users, including 786 technology professionals at large and small enterprises across a multitude of industries, such as tech services, software, financial services, telecom, education, government and healthcare.
The survey results are available in the RightScale 2019 State of the Cloud Report from Flexera, which can be downloaded at https://www.flexera.com/2019-cloud-report.
“The data from the RightScale 2019 State of the Cloud Report by Flexera is consistent with what we’re hearing from our C-level customers: managing the rapid increase in cloud use requires new capabilities for cost optimization and IT governance,” said Jim Ryan, CEO of Flexera. “With multi-cloud as the strategy of choice, most enterprises are already spending over $1 million a year in public cloud. As a result, optimizing costs is the top cloud priority for the third year in a row, and governance is the top challenge. This is exactly why we expanded the Flexera solution through the acquisition of RightScale and Meta SaaS last year – to help IT teams optimize spend across on-premises, cloud and SaaS, and reallocate wasted spend to support critical IT initiatives. These types of strategic solutions allow companies to be smart about how they’re utilizing the cloud, and ultimately help leaders realize how powerful technology can be in accelerating their businesses.”
A few key highlights from the RightScale 2019 State of the Cloud Report from Flexera:
In 2018, Flexera acquired RightScale, a top multi-cloud management provider, as well as Meta SaaS, which focuses on SaaS spend management capabilities. These acquisitions position Flexera as the top technology asset management offering across software, hardware, SaaS and cloud services, helping companies solve the critical problem of cloud services overspend and control.
