There's a better way to run IT.

Imagine no more barriers between business and IT. Where innovation and collaboration are ignited across the enterprise. Where less time is spent on managing infrastructure and costs – giving you more time to influence the future of the organization.

IT as a Service (ITaaS) is the path. Hybrid cloud is the foundation. The outcome is digital transformation. Just watch the video.

What is IT as a Service?

Think of ITaaS as an approach to digital services using a hybrid cloud infrastructure. It helps you run every workload in its optimal place — at optimal cost and business performance. And you no longer buy parts, but rather compose services in self-serve and pay-per-use models.

When you put Watson and automation to work on your infrastructure with IBM's Cognitive Technology Services Platform, your IT delivers peak performance. Always.

Think of Watson as the digital brain that turns data into insight, continuously learning and giving direction to automation. Think of automation as the muscle that consistently and flawlessly executes tasks on your infrastructure, faster than humans can.

Problems are preempted. IT is optimized. Your infrastructure can think and run by itself.

Now that’s a better way to run IT.
