The cloud provides a rich, new source for bringing technology-enabled services to the business. Massively scalable services no longer need to be delivered by internal or outsourced data centers. Instead, they can be delivered by cloud service providers via their vast computing resources.


Bringing value to the business

Cloud computing shifts the focus from how an IT service is implemented or hosted, to what business value it delivers. And that’s the very essence of what a service-centric IT strategy is all about – linking services to specific business outcomes. Moving forward, we believe companies will be asked to choose from a mix of service delivery platforms. These may include traditional in-house, managed or outsourced, and new cloud platforms. Management’s job will be to source, deliver, and govern each service, making sure it provides the desired business outcome.

With expertise across all these environments, IT experts like eMazzanti Technologies helps organizations cut through the confusion. It can enable firms to capture the business results wanted and capitalize on the new opportunities the cloud offers.


Managing a hybrid services environment

Since each service delivery option brings different value to a business,  there’s no need to start from scratch. It’s a matter of turning traditional models into more business-ready services and leveraging the service readiness of the cloud model.


Enhancing in-house services

Many services provided to a business simply can’t be accessed via the cloud at this time. The security, regulatory, availability and data integrity issues may make internal platforms the best fit for mission-critical services.

But there are ways to make infrastructures more business-ready and more responsive to the business. For example, virtualization enables companies to pool and share the servers, storage, and other systems that support service delivery. Flexibly dial up capacity can help keep service levels high, dialing it down during non-peak periods. This is similar to what cloud service providers do.

Companies may recognize this as utility computing, and many experts believe it’s the most efficient way to build a business-ready infrastructure.
