Q: What is demand self-service in cloud computing?
A: Demand self-service in cloud computing can be configured in public cloud environments to handle peak usage automatically. When the computing power of resources running in the cloud needs to scale to more capacity, the resources can be provisioned for the extra demand. It is important to monitor any demand self-service capability so that a pay as go service does not end up costing a lot more than expected.
Cloud computing that includes demand self-service can help a business achieve its digital transformation objectives and be more responsive to customer needs. Demand self-service can also be integrated with Internet of Things (IoT) devices so that a 360 view of customer data or environmental data can be fully digital and responsive to any changes in an environment.
