To thrive in an era of multi-cloud architecture, driven by digital transformation, Enterprise IT must evolve from ITIL-based gatekeeping to enabling shared self-service processes for DevOps excellence.
For most organisations, digital transformation efforts mean delivering new business and customer value more quickly and at a very large scale. The implication for IT is navigating the shift from cost optimisation to speed optimisation. The cloud is an inevitable part of this shift as it presents the opportunity to rapidly deploy on-demand services with limitless scale.
To unlock the fastest path to the value of the cloud, organisations must consider how to industrialise the application delivery process across each layer of the cloud – embracing the cloud operating model, and tuning people, processes and tools to it.
In this white paper we look at the implications of the cloud operating model, and present solutions for IT teams to adopt this model across infrastructure, security, networking and application delivery.
