Upcoming Webinar: Transform, Empower, Innovate: 3 Must-Do Steps For IT To Maintain Relevancy In A Cloud World

Filed in Cloud Industry Insights by Lisa Larson | September 12, 2013 4:30 pm

According to Scott Bils, Managing Partner at Leverhawk[1], IT as a Service (ITaaS)[2] is in fact a new IT business and operating model, not a delivery platform. ITaaS is when IT becomes a service provider that offers and orchestrates IT services instead of organizing around traditional technology silos. The model provides users self-serve access to internal and third-party services via an integrated service catalog that supports chargeback and billing.

IT organizations that evolve with the times have a distinct advantage. The time is now for IT to take the opportunity to reform, renew and revise their role by becoming strategic advisors to their business.

During this webinar I will discuss how to successfully implement ITaaS and how hybrid cloud[3] complements these efforts by offering architectural attributes that give your business the best fit for your workloads.
