DevOps and containers enable enterprises to deliver better customer value in a more cost-effective manner by institutionalizing an automated, continuous, and rapid development, build, test, release, and deployment process for software. Based on primary research data obtained from 300 U.S. enterprises, this report presents ten key priorities for successfully leveraging containers in production and at scale, within a DevOps context. These priorities are the foundation for the EMA Top 3 awards presented to the outstanding vendors in each container management-related software category. Download the full report here.
"The study showed that the vast majority of enterprises need significant help to manage Kubernetes in a compliant and secure manner," says Torsten Volk, managing research director at Enterprise Management Associates. "Nirmata takes on Kubernetes management on premises and in the cloud, so that customers can focus on releasing better software. In addition, Nirmata allows operations teams to ensure compliance and consistent behaviors across Kubernetes clusters as well as traditional bare metal or VM-based application container environments via configurable policies."
"Nirmata's mission is to enable DevOps agility for all enterprises," says Jim Bugwadia, Founder and CEO at Nirmata. "We believe that containers are the best way to package applications, and Kubernetes is the best way for enterprises to manage containers. Nirmata is the only solution designed for enterprise IT Operations teams that provides complete management of Kubernetes applications and clusters on any cloud."
