The majority of enterprise-scale organizations are developing hybrid IT architectures that match the needs of individual user groups and workloads with unique capabilities. IDC interviewed seven organizations using Red Hat® CloudForms—a unified vendor-agnostic platform for automating self-service provisioning and workload life-cycle management across environments—and estimated that they will realize a return on investment of 436%. The seven organizations reported that Red Hat CloudForms has given them the ability to deliver services with agility and speed across their IT environments while also improving management efficiency.
