The democratization of cloud consumption delivers an obvious time-to-benefit improvement for business users but also bears a new set of challenges related to change and integration management with core systems of record. We refer to this as the Cloud Sprawl Management syndrome. The principle challenge IT organizations face in this syndrome is the inability to maintain pace with the forced updates from SaaS vendors which likely will impact business processes and integration with core systems of record.
Simply, the core Test Center of Excellence (CoE) functions needed to test integration points, database services, business processes struggle to keep pace managing: Test & Service, Tools & Subject Matter Expertise (SME).
Although SaaS application and cloud sprawl is an extremely mature consumption model for most organizations, the challenges that most organizations face is a growing shortage of tools management expertise, test service management discipline and/or subject matter expertise.
All of these challenges can have a dramatic impact when trying to maintain governance, business process continuity and usability of technology to best serve the business. Put simply, how are you able to manage the vendor change events outside of your control.
