Governing, Managing and Securing your portfolio of Hybrid Services

The Cloud has dramatically altered the relationship between IT and business by setting a new standard in service provisioning and consumption. Business users are becoming consumers and expect applications and services that are instantly available, easy-to-use, mobile and that provide a clear competitive advantage.

Enterprise IT and Service providers can become hybrid service providers by:

  • On-boarding efficiently public cloud services
  • Managing the lifecycle of composite, hybrid applications
  • Building private clouds for development testing and production environments

  • It starts with Service Portfolio Governance - the processes of governing, publishing, and managing the portfolio of hybrid services
  • Ensure the rapid delivery of composite, cloud-ready applications
  • These applications then need to be deployed in an automated fashion
  • Deploy applications on the right mix of infrastructure
  • IT needs to assure and secure the service until the application is retired
