In our previous blog post, we discussed how we are approaching an important inflection point in the cloud migration timeline. Certain legacy applications will remain on owned infrastructure for the foreseeable future, but the scale and agility offered by cloud platforms offers competitive and operational advantages that most organizations cannot ignore. As cloud adoption became mainstream, many enterprises saw fewer objections to migrating their infrastructure to cloud. One Gartner report finds that many objections to cloud adoption are gradually becoming discredited and organizations are leaving behind the cloud experimentation stage and looking for strategic relationships with cloud technology providers.
A recent Gartner report states: “Organizations with a cross-discipline cloud strategy are more likely to find success in cloud initiatives and recognize the full benefits of cloud.”

IT Service Management, or ITSM for short, may have IT in its name – but service management is not just about IT.
