Businesses are moving workloads out of traditional data centers and into the cloud as they seek to become more agile and cost effective. Cloud computing provides an alternative model for IT infrastructure and application sourcing and delivery. However, IT organizations that leverage cloud computing may also be overlooking another big opportunity. That’s because many data centers are using the cloud to host applications and data storage but typically aren’t using the cloud to process effective batch computing workloads. These workloads represent one of the more mission-critical and complex tasks within the data center. For the most part, batch workloads - 70 percent of all workloads - remain hard-wired to the data center.

The key to unlocking this opportunity already exists in the data center in the form of enterprise workload automation tools.

With the right workload automation solutions - ones that can dynamically exploit virtual resources based on business priorities and policies - businesses can take much greater advantage of cloud computing. They can achieve faster time to market, reduced costs, and more flexible business operations.
