Companies that are serious about moving to on-demand, service-led delivery recognise that they need to change from horizontally organised IT to vertically aligned IT. This has a huge impact on the day-to-day role of domain architects and enables them to move from a tactical to a strategic role. For example, instead of executing repetitive low-level provisioning tasks they now define policies and resource pools and manage service classes so that infrastructure can be consumed on-demand from a cloud management portal. In order to support this transition we need new management tools that can accelerate time to market and eliminate the operational handoffs between domain architects for hypervisor, server, network and storage layers.Join this discussion with the Hitachi Private Cloud team who can share how Hitachi can guide you through this transition as you adapt your role and remain relevant in the world of cloud.

CIOs increasingly need to care about the finances and costs of IT. They must create services that business segments demand and align them with IT resources from other sources (like cloud providers).
