Jason FerraraEnterprise information technology leaders are looking at a time where all aspects of IT service delivery is becoming dependent on consumption, a major shift Jason Ferrara of IO Data Centers believes is a result of a confluence of mobile, cloud and other factors.

“The business“”the end user of IT services“”demands value and it will go around IT if that“™s what it takes,“ Ferrara, vice president for digital marketing at IO, wrote on the IO blog Feb. 7.

“IT can no longer succeed by operating behind the scenes; IT must be a“”if not the“”key strategic driver of the business,“ he added.

He noted that the trend could force chief information officers to change how they see the enterprise both from a strategic and security point of view.

“Democratization of IT means business users demand that their technology deliver its promised functionality irrespective of the underlying infrastructure,“ Ferrara said.

“From that perspective, everything IT does should be value-add for the business,“ he added.

One way to stay relevant and viable is to offer “everything IT as a service,“ he says.

“That doesn“™t mean infrastructure is unnecessary“¦ but it is now the software that defines how the enterprise consumes resources and how those resources should be configured,“ Ferrara said.

“Everything, even the data center, can be consumed as a service, and resources must be provisioned and managed accordingly, he concluded.
