Virtualization and cloud technologies are widely accepted as big opportunities today. The substantial cost savings, accelerated ROI, greater resilience and improved flexibility offered by virtualization make this transition a highly attractive proposition. Organizations are coming to realize that they need to transition their corporate data centers to virtualized infrastructures in order to reduce IT costs and enable new services. However, typical challenges with business transformation can hamper success.
Align IT processes with business objectives
Investment in – and full adoption of – delivering IT as a performance-driven service aligned with business objectives is growing, yet remains low. Most IT departments are still spending the lion’s share of their IT budget on basic maintenance to keep core operations running. Yet, the organizations that will survive and thrive into the future are planning for the long-term cloud landscape and aligning their IT processes with their business objectives by utilizing Business Service Management.
Leverage Business Service Management
Business Service Management (BSM) is an approach used to manage business-aligned IT services. BSM promotes a customer-centric and business-focused approach to Service Management – aligning business objectives and priorities with IT – from strategy through to operations, including a focus on processes for continual improvements.

CloudFX believes CIOs are currently faced with three critical challenges that Business Service Management (BSM) can help address:
- Reduce cost of operations
