cloud_services.jpgIn the past decade, the cloud decision has moved from tactical to strategic, from a cost-cutting move to an investment in business agility and speed-to-market. Cloud services are the cornerstone of enterprise IT transformation efforts that are upending traditional data center technologies, operations, and roles. The new goal is a seamless, hybrid environment that comprises multiple deployment models and environments: premises-based and hosted; physical and virtual; public and private. But in these early days of the cloud era, there continues to be a gap between customer expectations and provider capabilities. Is your business at risk of being left behind?
