Reuse Existing Infrastructure Equipment

One major benefit found in converting a traditional data center to a private cloud is the ability to reuse your hardware and software. If your data center is already virtualized at the compute and storage level, you're halfway there. The next step is to choose a private cloud platform which ties your compute, network, and storage resources into a unified repository for automated deployments.

Building a Private Cloud
The charge back plan could potentially be attractive but if you're not already charging back for services I don't think a private cloud will be the missing component in this process for many companies.  It would let departments tailor their charge back spending in a much more flexible manner though so if you're looking for a way to stop overbuying then this could be very useful.  If you're in the practice of charge backs then self service provisioning makes sense too.  If your services are as easy to spin up as an AWS instance you can avoid some shadow IT which is great.
