Cloud Management Platform (CMP) combines tools, processes, and technologies that enable organizations to monitor, control, and manage multi-cloud (on-premises, public, and hybrid) resources and services. Through this centralized platform, organizations can measure and control the utilization of cloud computing resources by incorporating a self-service interface, template-based provisioning, governance of multi-cloud resources, life cycle management, workload optimization, automation, discovery, and visibility of multi-cloud resources across various functional areas. It also empowers IT leaders to procure and operate CMP as on-premises applications or software-as-a-service (SaaS) products for a specific product line.
