IT as a Service (ITaaS) is the path. Hybrid cloud is the foundation.

IT as a Service for Dummies

Easy-to-understand introduction to ITaaS.

IT as a Service is an approach for defining and consuming digital services through a hybrid cloud infrastructure so you can run every workload in its optimal place — at optimal cost and business performance.

When you transition to an IT as a Service model, you shift from buying parts to composing services in self-serve consumption and pay-per-use models. Standard building blocks help you design better solutions, faster.

IT as a Service continuously preempts problems and optimises every aspect of your ITaaS environment. Cognitive capabilities ensure flawless IT performance that enables your infrastructure to think and run itself.

Judith Hurwitz discusses the fundamentals of IT as a Service.

How ITaaS can help

Done right, ITaaS enables the IT organisation to deliver extraordinary value to the business:

  • Reducing IT costs and improving cost transparency

  • Increasing visibility and control over the enterprise IT infrastructure
  • Providing speed and scalability to meet the digital demands of the enterprise
  • Increasing opportunities for strategic innovation and disruptive value.

Achieving ITaaS

A cloud strategy that articulates the benefits to be achieved across the enterprise

A governance model and service delivery platform that eliminates unchecked cloud consumption across the enterprise that can expose it to unacceptable cloud sprawl, costs and security threats

A robust hybrid IT design that helps on premise 'systems of record' integrate in a seamless and dynamic way with 'systems of engagement' built in the cloud to enable bimodal IT

A cloud brokerage service that enables more rapid assessment and selection of the lowest cost, most suitable cloud environments for applications and workloads.

A cognitive-based approach to continuously preempt problems and optimise every aspect of your ITaaS environment.
