The Enterprise today has many challenges that the IT organisation is tasked to resolve. Nowadays, the business demands speedier services, lower costs, increased reliability, greater flexibility and elastic scalability.
It sounds like a job for some cloud services, right?
The problem though is that these requests all conflict with the things that traditionally the IT organisation has held very dear to it; security, policies and regulatory constraints, management oversight, service allocation and budgeting, access management, control, monitoring and governance.
Put simply, the business and application development teams want to exploit the ‘promise’ of cloud enabled services and become an agile, empowered enterprise by acquiring IT services simply and instantly themselves – without getting the IT organisation involved – by ‘browsing’ through a catalogue of business ready services. But the IT organisation knows it must remain in control of the infrastructure, services and information systems that are used.
