Cloud and Virtualisation has brought huge benefits to IT and the business consumer, both enjoying gains in agility and productivity. New environments and applications can be made available in minutes rather than days and weeks and customers can ‘pick and choose’ from an array of Cloud and Virtualisation solution providers and technologies.
As developers and business leaders adopt multiple cloud services, CIOs will implement unified consumption systems. The key need: A service catalog that bolts new services into your portfolio to simplify consumption, operational management, and financial control. Single sign-on solutions are required.

Equally, Cloud and Virtualization has brought new challenges for the IT organization and the business to manage:
IT responsiveness to new infrastructure needs has improved dramatically with typical provisioning times being reduced from weeks to hours. However when new infrastructure requirements are standard and approved, involving manual tasks in provisioning only adds an unwanted bottleneck and cost that can easily be avoided.
Moreover, business users increasingly feel empowered to make their own choices. IT faces the challenge of providing an intuitive self-service portal with the necessary controls to enforce correct entitlement rules whilst also enabling the desired automation.
