From a joint webinar with Verismic in December 2015

The rise of the “as-a-Service” paradigm is disrupting industries across every market of technology.

Join 451 Research’s Donnie Berkholz, Ph.D., and Ashley Leonard, CEO of Verismic Software, in exploring how IT is being disrupted today. This webinar will explore industry changes and how end users have responded to the shift in areas such as cloud, DevOps and IT management. Along with a 20,000+ survey panel, we will discuss what IT teams need to survive and thrive in the era of IT as a Service.

  17. 17. What business users (LOBs) need/expect of IT • They don’t care about any of the stuff on the last few slides • They need better, cheaper, faster (sometimes different) • 2 of the 4 will do – for now • Why can’t my IT organization work like Uber? Box, Salesforce, AWS, Apple? CIO 18
  18. 18. Factors inhibiting software-defined infrastructure and ITaaS • Indecisive organization • Lack of collaboration • Poor planning • Inadequate skills • Dated, rigid IT processes • Complexity of orchestration, administration and integration tooling • Lack of technology maturity This is good news for IT organizations – sort of! It buys time and helps formulate IT strategy 19
  19. 19. Getting started: IT strategy for the journey to ITaaS • Accelerate virtualization (server, storage, networking) toward a SDDC • Push IT siloes together • Rethink IT processes • Expand IT self-service catalogues and offer to LOBs • Relinquish commodity technology and services, and ‘unprofitable business’ to service providers and vendors (partners) • Stick to high-value competitively differentiated services • Inventory IT building blocks and assemble into differentiated assets = reference architectures & ease their deployment 20
  20. 20. Question: What is your core differentiator as a business? 21
