Interesting article this week in InfoWorld about 2010 CIO priorities. Nope, it wasn’t surprising to read that Virtualization and Cloud Computing top Gartner’s 2010 top ten CIO priorities. But the article did provide a good read on the role Virtualization and Cloud Computing are playing in re-shaping IT.
At Accellion we see the “seeds being sown for a different kind of IT”. Over the past 12 – 18 months we’ve seen the significant and rapid shift in demand for managed file transfer deployments for Virtual and Cloud environments. Yes, virtual and cloud deployments are faster to deploy and scale, and lower cost. And yes it is interesting to read that CIOs and CFOs are getting excited in this shift to scalable technologies that get away from monster IT projects with huge upfront investments and long deployment timeframes.
We like this new kind of IT that allows organizations to quickly get business solutions into the hands of business users. With security and compliance regulations placing increasing demands on organizations it’s good to know that at least IT is making it easier and faster to deploy solutions.
Virtualization and Cloud Computing – bring it on.
