Welcome to IT as a Service For Dummies, IBM Limited Edition. IT as a Service is the emerging technique that gives technology leaders the flexibility of providing the right set of services to the business. The world of IT is changing dramatically. Businesses are increasingly discovering that IT services are becoming the foundation for the customer experience. IT as a Service isn’t simply a new delivery model for applications. Instead, IT as a Service is a new approach to providing an array of modular services that are targeted to solve changing business problems. While services can be as straightforward as compute or storage in the cloud, they can also be used to complex solutions. Other services may include microservices or integration services that enable a business to quickly create new solutions to help service customers in a more creative and efficient manner.
Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand.
The typical business pain points per the above scenario are always like:
Latency – While, latency problems caused by geographic distance are impossible to solve on the public Internet;
Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base;
Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget.
Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats.

In some cases, adopting cloud IoT platform may make more sense where required processes, communication costs and cloud costs meet sufficient total cost of ownership against deploying MDC. Additionally, in situations that an end-user organization already has a secure room or a modular data center solution where infrastructure can be housed and/or the amount of infrastructure involved may be too small to benefit from power/cooling advantages of being housed in an MDC, the organization may not see a need for an MDC. An MDC is nothing more than a smaller form of a modular data center, and a number of providers have entered the modular data center solutions space in the past. These modular data center solution providers came into the market with high expectations for growth and ROI only to find that high sales were not forthcoming due to limited use cases, so many exited the space.

Today, SAP’s solution portfolio looks very different and addresses different business needs than the SAP of a few years ago. Instead of primarily managing back-office enterprise resource planning (ERP) processes such as finance and the supply chain, SAP is evolving into a new type of software company that’s poised to enable digital business. Numerous acquisitions — including leading eCommerce solution hybris and cloud solutions Ariba, Concur, and SuccessFactors — and a new platform strategy based on SAP Hana, an in-memory computing solution, mean that the SAP core is positioned to support real-time digital business in the era of connected everything.

Increasingly complex networks, require more than a one-size-fitsall
approach to ensuring adequate performance and data integrity.
In addition to the garden-variety performance issues such as slow
applications, increased bandwidth requirements, and lack of visibility
into cloud resources, there is also the strong likelihood of a malicious
While many security solutions like firewalls and intrusion detection
systems (IDS) work to prevent security incidents, none are 100 percent
effective. However, there are proactive measures that any IT team can
implement now that can help ensure that a successful breach is found
quickly, effectively remediated, and that evidential data is available in
the event of civil and/or criminal proceedings.
As enterprises become more distributed and migrate applications to the cloud, they will need to diversify
their network performance management solutions. In particular, the network operations team will need to
complement its packet-based monitoring tools with active test monitoring solutions to enhance visibility into
the cloud and help enterprises scale monitoring gracefully and cost-effectively.
