The relationship between IT administrators and developers needs to be one of mutual respect and support. Even though they have different roles, their day to day activities are very much interlinked. It is essential they work together to leverage continuous integration and rapid delivery of critical applications. Ultimately, both are trying to achieve three business objectives:

  • Optimise apps with cloud and develop cloud-enabled applications
  • Open data centres to work with cloud services
  • Create new cloud native applications

While developers have the responsibility to maintain and evolve a heritage application, they also require additional benefits of elasticity and dynamic resource provisioning.  Administrators on the other hand require confidence, not only in the developer’s ability but also in the capabilities of the organisations private cloud. Additionally, their role needs them to:

  • Be assured that corporate data is compliant with GDPR regulations
  • Monitor and manage all applications running across the cloud platform and quickly update workloads
  • Have transparency into the costs of the cloud platform to recoup through charges and charge-backs
  • Govern the lifecycle of its assets and provides efficient support for its use
  • Automatically manage the backup, recovery and disaster failover of applications and their data into alternative locations
