ITaaS Delivery Models Expected to Soar

Traditional means of acquiring and deploying business-driving tech solutions appear to be getting, well, lost in a cloud, according to a new survey from PMG. In fact, cloud computing and IT as a service (ITaaS) delivery models are expected to grow so fast, that future generations of professionals may find it difficult to believe that companies once set aside lots of valuable office real estate to stock all of that tech stuff. PMG's 2013 PMG Enterprise IT Survey report indicates, for example, that enterprises are moving rapidly to make enterprise app stores available for quicker, more effective and affordable purchases. Similarly, they're migrating steadily to the ITaaS model for infrastructure, software and other needs. Oddly enough, however, the majority of technology professionals surveyed say their organization hasn't come up with a formal enterprise cloud strategy. Still, it's clear that this is where companies appear to be heading. The survey also includes a couple of general state-of-IT questions, such as how CIOs can enhance their value equation within their department. And, in a just for fun question, PMG asked tech workers what they daydream about while at the office. Nearly 330 U.S. IT professionals participated in the research.
