Secret 1: Choose to Offer Self-Service IT As Your New Normal, Not the Rare Exception

The dream of self-service IT to help accelerate digital transformation no longer has to be a figment of your imagination. In the past, everyone involved in the IT automation and provisioning process needed to be an expert in scripting, and governance challenges could be a nightmare. Plus, being an expert in various hybrid cloud and multi-cloud technologies was as essential as knowing the business outcomes. A lack of hands-on knowledge of Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure or Terraform was slowing down the pace of development. No more.

Make self-service IT a central pillar of how your business operates. Implement user-friendly catalogs with easy-to-understand and implement blueprints so provisioning resources such as compute, storage, or backup is a snap. And your self-service IT framework should adhere to your governance and compliance standards so you never have to worry about costly mistakes. Commit to SS-IT and don’t look back.
