re: Clouds Vs. Outsourcing: The Next Battleground
Great article with spot on insights into where things are moving. At Nimsoft, our experience supports the results of the survey--weG«÷re seeing tremendous interest in our IT Management-as-a-Service solution within cloud-based service providers.
Service providers are looking for cloud solutions that can be turned on and off and delivered with a G«£pay as you goG«• model as clients need dictates.
The combination of offloaded IT with full QoS transparency is what makes the cloud work best. If fast-growth companies can work with (IaaS) providers to quickly/easily tap cloud resources and maintain their visibility into those resources, IT transforms into an agile enabler of fast, cost-efficient business growth.
