Q: What is cloud management software?

A: Cloud management software helps IT administrators provision and manage resources from multiple private and public cloud environments. User access to IT resources from cloud environments is configured using role-based user access (RBAC) controls. Consumption of cloud resources and their cost can be summarized and reported on using cloud management software.

Cloud management software typically integrates with a wide range of target environments for private and public resources as well as enterprise DevOps configuration management tools. Administrators can configure, orchestrate, and automate provisioning processes to make it easier for end-users through the cloud management software system.
