A good service catalog should do three things: educate customers about IT infrastructure services, help them make better technology choices, and build credibility with business partners.  Today’s service catalogs, however, fail to meet internal customers’ evolving expectations. We’ve said previously that it’s time to take a hard, long-overdue look at the service catalog.

Lenovo Looks to Automate Edge Computing

Article | March 3, 2020

Charles Ferland, vice president and general manager for networking and communications service providers at Lenovo Data Center Group, said the Lenovo Open Cloud Automation (LOC-A) framework provides a single pane of glass through which IT teams can not only provision IT infrastructure but also invoke other frameworks to automate, for example, the deployment of virtual machines on top of that IT infrastructure.

This rapid change in focus, combined with continued confusion over the terms themselves, is enough to make an IT professional’s head spin. In truth, hybrid cloud and multicloud (and even some combination of them) are completely viable models, with various organizations relying on each to achieve significant business benefits. But before IT and business leaders can decide which approach makes the most sense for them, they need to step back and ask themselves what outcomes they are trying to achieve.
