Automated Provisioning and Deployment

Today's IT organizations are under increasing pressure to deploy private or hybrid clouds and become a service provider to their business users. In many cases, this change is motivated by the increasing prevalence of business users going outside of corporate IT to procure IT services direct from external cloud vendors. In other cases, IT organizations view cloud as the answer for enabling greater innovation in the business. Whatever the catalyst, those organizations that have started making the move to cloud have already realized real gains in efficiency, agility, and reliability.
