Where is cloud computing dragging IT operations?

with one comment

Well, if the inevitable outcome of reduced friction is to increase demand for IT resources, someone is going to have to do the capacity planning. In a sense, the impact of cloud computing will be to shift the tasks for IT operations from tactical resource provisioning to strategic resource planning — with an emphasis on achieving the most efficient, lowest cost infrastructure possible. This is a far cry from the “your mess for less” outsourcing that has previously been the outcome of cost focus — this is about creating an automated, immediate search for the lowest cost, most available, most appropriate computing resources needed to fulfill a provisioning request.
