In this nascent market, the only metric that matters is actual customer adoption and we’re still very early in that game, said Gartner(s it) Research Director Alessandro Perilli. And, before you buy private cloud or in Gartner parlance, a cloud management platform, look under the covers. Most private clouds now are actually pieces of many management tools often acquired and spackled together. “A way to measure how mature a CMP is consists of evaluating how well its management modules integrate with each other,” he wrote.
