Tag Manager – a Game Changer

by

Tagging is vitally important to successful computing in the cloud. However, tag practices languish as enterprises focus on other aspects of their cloud activity. The 2022 State of Tag Management in the Cloud report reveals the scope of the problem. Businesses lack consistent tagging policies. Legacy resources require massive effort to tag. Sloppy tag environments defy remedy. These and multiple other issues engender frustration and a “where do we even begin” mindset that deprives businesses of the incredible benefits they could realize with a healthy tag environment.
