Strategic IT Planning: Utilising Cloud-based IT Services
Stefan Haase, Data Services Specialist, InTechnology
About this talk
For well over a decade, outsourcing tried to take a foot hold, but only over the last two to three years, things have matured, most notably with providers presenting us with stronger, more compelling options - it's not about hosting Microsoft Office or arranging offsite backups of data anymore, it's about offering complete private network infrastructures capable of delivering layered managed services on an utility basis. Take what you need when you need it, and pay only for what you use.
Cloud-based services are the way forward and can fix the CIO's main problems - how to do more with less while reducing their carbon footprint. Few companies want or need to own all their IT kit, but they do want to choose what they do with their IT and where they do it.
IT services delivered from the cloud allow businesses to keep control of some business critical systems and those that give them competitive advantage, but use the lowest cost providers for the rest. By simply using what's required to satisfy business demands, over capacities are no longer required, which results in reduced monthly costs as well as a reduced carbon footprint.
