Take Charge, Lead Change, Do Cloud Right!

The theme for next week’s Gartner Data Center conference, “Taking Charge, Leading Change — Your I&O Transformation Can’t Wait”, is a real wake up call for today’s I&O leaders. Gartner’s focus on operational excellence highlights how the line-of-business and information technology (IT) management are being entangled by the fast moving and ever changing technology landscape. It also showcases today’s leadership challenge of how to transform that entanglement into an interweaved value producing process.


Take Charge, Lead Change, Do Cloud Right!As the lead in managing an organization’s information technology platform, infrastructure and operations (I&O) professional have typically been focused on the technical aspects of provisioning, management, governance and security. This represents only 44% of the IT value chain. While excellence in delivering these component is essential, it is not sufficient. In today’s business environment, the true I&O professional also provides crucial support to the other 56%, the so-called front end of the chain. Here in the front-end is where IT management superstars enable corporate agility and flexibility to their business line and acquisition cohorts. This is also why in the cloud computing age, cloud service brokerage (CSB) is so revolutionary. 

CSB capability, either developed internally or acquired through an external partner, has become all the rage because solution integrators and enterprise IT organizations have now recognized the shortcomings of the traditional way of “selling” and “delivering” IT. Today’s I&O Leader must take charge and lead their organization forward into this new way of doing business.

Gravitant recognizes this imperative! That’s why it invested in innovation by delivering an advanced cloud decision engine that normalizes vendor pricing and capabilities, customizes the enterprise cloud service catalog and automates the discovery and synchronization of cloud-based resources. With Gravitant CSB technology, you can now monitor, manage and make evidence based decisions across 100% of your IT value chain.

Be today’s I&O Leader by understanding your environment, understanding your options and understanding your true cloud computing costs before purchase! 

Take Charge. Lead Change. Do Cloud Right!
