Virtualization and the cloud have effectively become mandates for IT. Though we are still somewhat early in the virtualization and cloud lifecycles, it's quite clear that these two technologies are going to become major, if not dominant models of IT.
Virtualization deployment will continue to grow dramatically, fueled by a variety of factors, including continued use of virtualization to support consolidation efforts; growth of virtualization use in mission-critical applications and workloads; growth in virtualization among small and midsize organizations; successful deployment of virtualization as a strategic initiative to enhance business agility; and virtualization as the foundation for next-generation cloud computing services.
Agility has become one of the most important objectives of IT departments and business executives worldwide. In this era of 24/7 connectivity, organizations must often respond to customer and employee needs immediately
Business agility be defined as a company's ability to respond to changes in business conditions quickly enough to benefit from them. To support business agility, IT managers generally want to be able to execute projects quickly and efficiently,

BI requirements are oft en out of date even before the fi rst set of specifi cations has been collected and documented. Agility is the last frontier in the battle for BI success, and it is the keystone to Forrester’s Agile BI triad: Agile BI soft ware development, Agile BI organizations, and Agile BI technologies.
Cloud-based systems reduce the effort needed for ongoing support, cloud users are able to devote a higher percentage of their IT spending to new initiatives. The cost savings, combined with strategic benefits in speed, scalability, and agility, argue in favor of organizations moving aggressively to the cloud.

In this whitepaper we'll explore some of these problems inherent in virtualized datacenters and cloud environments, specifically enterprise private clouds, and we'll discuss solutions that can take you down the last mile of the automation journey so that your business can fully achieve agility and extract maximum value from its private-cloud investments.
Integrated Computing (IC), also known as Converged Infrastructure, stands to revolutionize everything about IT. IC takes all of virtualization, storage, networking, and compute into a single system and allows total infrastructure oversight through one console. As you can imagine, the improvements in ease of use, agility, and efficiency are quite substantial.
This is essential because infrastructure maintenance devours about three-fourths of annual IT budgets. IC changes all of that, delivering high efficiency solutions for the lifecycle of system,reducing costs and freeing up valuable personnel.
The evolution of IT awaits.
For years, many support teams have been hamstrung by their traditional service desk platforms, which require complex, time-consuming coding for virtually every aspect of customization. This complexity makes it costly and difficult for support organizations to adapt—and places an increasingly substantial burden on the agility and efficiency of the business as a whole. CA Cloud Service Management is a clearly differentiated alternative to traditional service desk platforms. CA Cloud Service Management is purpose built for speed—rapidly accelerating time-to-value where other SaaS solutions fall short. Implement in days, adopt with minimal training, configure without programmers, automate end-user requests, and get automatic upgrades.
Over the past 15 years, we’ve seen generations of service management platforms come and go—but many critical limitations persist. Consequently, IT organizations, and the businesses they serve, suffer from a lack of agility, poor service levels and high costs. This paper offers a look at the obstacles of prior generations of
service management platforms, and it reveals how a new generation of solutions addresses some of these fundamental limitations.
The concept of “shifting left” has gained traction in
software development as a way to increase agility,
reduce cost, and improve product and release quality.
But shifting left has also been hailed as a powerful
method for optimizing IT service management. When
the service desk team shifts left, both end users and
service desk personnel benefit from greater efficiency
and service quality, which leads to happier, more
productive internal customers—and ultimately,
better business outcomes.
