Change is upon us. The pace and scale of digital business innovation is increasing. Industries are experiencing widespread disruption. Digitally connected customers demand more, faster. New competition comes from outside of traditional market segments. IT modernisation, digital transformation, and DevOps practices can help your organisation optimise resources, speed development, innovate quickly and continuously, operate proactively, and adapt faster to market changes.
However, this places an extra burden on IT operations teams, who are now asked to move faster, manage increasingly complex IT environments, accommodate new development approaches and technologies, and work more closely with business organisations. Shifting from a system administrator role to a service delivery role will help you deliver IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) and meet the evolving needs of digital business operations.
Today’s IT operations teams manage ever-changing, complex IT architectures built on multiple platforms and complicated technology stacks. As organisations adopt digital business practices, IT operations is challenged to deliver scalable, on-demand infrastructure to support developers, lines of business, and C-level initiatives — all while still ensuring security, compliance, and reliability. Faced with this, IT operations teams recognise that they will need to adopt a new ITaaS approach and modern, unified management and automation tools to remain relevant and effectively support business outcomes.
