Cloud-enabled Technology as a Service and the New IT Imperative

Posted by Lou Person on Oct 06, 2011 in Cloud Journey

There are two IT environments at work in most enterprises today. The internal, physical infrastructure comprised of legacy technology and business processes is the more familiar. But the rapidly developing, external virtual infrastructure may prove to be the more powerful.

Whether it has been tethered to hardware, lost through poor planning or trapped in fragmented processes, much of the business value of these disparate infrastructures has been inaccessible for years. Cloud-enabled Technology as a Service frees this functionality, harnesses it to connectivity and puts it to work for:

Individuals and teams
By providing access to faster, cheaper and more:

  • Computing power
  • Software tools
  • Data storage options

Organizations and communities
By empowering them to:

  • Assess and respond to shifting priorities
  • Invest in new ideas
  • Maximize opportunities and minimize disruptions
  • Transform when, where and how people communicate, innovate and learn
