Cloud Computing: Amid Challenges, Partners Embrace IT as a Service

Grazed from InformationManagement. Author: Bob Violino.

The transformation of the technology channel continues to accelerate with the shift to cloud services, according to a Canalys survey of channel partners worldwide. A huge majority (96%) of the 352 respondents say they already deliver some of form of “IT-as-a-service”, including managing customer assets on-premises, off-premises hosting or public cloud services.

For most, this still accounts for less than a quarter of revenue. But by 2017, the research firm says, almost two-thirds expect IT-as-a-service to account for more than 25% of revenue. “Product resell is still the most important business model for over 60% of channel partners,” Rachel Brindley, research director, Channels, at Canalys said in a statement. “But they rate the importance of their managed services to their businesses very highly, just behind reselling products.”...

In Public Cloud Computing Warfare, Is ITaaS the Key to Peace?

Grazed from MidSizeInsider. Author: Doug Bonderud.

The gloves are off in a fight for public cloud computing dominance. In the last two weeks, several cloud leaders have announced changes to their pricing structure in a bid to woo enterprise and midsize IT professionals who still have doubts about a shared cloud solution. There is another option: IT-as-a-service (ITaaS), which leverages IT resources in cloudlike form without resorting to full-on, distributed deployment. Some experts call it the answer to public cloud computing. Can it really make peace?

A Pressurized Environment

According to an April 2 ZDNet article, lower prices combined with higher availability make public clouds an attractive option for many companies; so attractive, in fact, that IT departments may find themselves under pressure from C-suite executives and shadow IT guerrillas who desperately want cloud access. One possible answer is to meet halfway through the use of ITaaS...

IT Goes On-Demand With Outsourced ITaaS

Grazed from Forbes. Author: Walt Strubbe.

For a sector driven by rapid change, it’s always discouraging to hear IT catch blame for being a corporate bottleneck. Yet it’s a refrain growing all the more common with the widespread adoption of SaaS, IaaS and other cloud-based service offerings that enable IT circumvention.

And it’s one that continues to push IT leaders to redefine their strategies and policies. One way IT can retain the control and compliance it needs and still give end users what they want is to operate “as-a-Service,” a movement the industry is calling IT-as-a-Service, or ITaaS...

IT as a service: How to succeed as an IT broker

Grazed from TechTarget. Author: Karen Goulart.

Simplifying IT service delivery doesn't mean going on autopilot Offering services should be intuitive and easily self-served, yes, but there must also be established mechanisms to fix problems or improve upon services, stresses Ian Clayton, senior vice president of operations at U.K.-based G2G3.

A common method for improvement is something IT organizations generally lack, he said -- in part, because they do not regularly engage the business. "IT brokers need an engagement mechanism, so they can listen to changing needs and they can convert them into [the technology]," Clayton said...

The Role of Cloud Automation and IT-as-a-Service

Grazed from Wired. Author: Jason Liu.

As a software company CEO, I have the opportunity to meet regularly with IT leaders from some of the world’s largest brands and leading IT organization innovators. Based on these conversations, it has become clear that IT organizations continue to struggle with the centralization of company-wide computing needs in the journey toward providing IT-as-a-Service. It’s also clear that cloud is both part of the solution and part of the problem.

For the past 18 months or so, one of the recurring anecdotes that I’ve heard has been around line of business staff engaging the public cloud to run projects without first engaging IT...
