Cloud Complete leverages a “one-stop approach” to eliminate lengthy planning processes and can help reduce the time it takes a company to become an ITaaS organization, according to Datalink.
“[The solution] cuts months out of the initial transition process by aggregating every building block required to create a cloud delivery system and rolling it out in one fast-tracked project,” Datalink Chief Operating Officer Shawn O’Grady said in a prepared statement.
Cloud Complete’s features include:
Service automation and orchestration
“[This solution] consolidates what, in many cases, amounts to dozens of strategic, operational and technology decisions into one cohesive approach for building out a private cloud,” Kent Christensen, Datalink’s virtualization and cloud practice director, told Talkin’ Cloud. “Cloud Complete offers a get-started approach to organizations wishing to streamline their migration to a service-oriented model while still meeting day-to-day IT operational needs.”
Datalink also provides Cloud Complete infrastructure monitoring, management and scheduled maintenance.
How does Cloud Complete work?
Cloud Complete bundles multiple IT services and technologies into a single package, culminating in “a self-service IT portal enabling business users with no IT knowledge to request IT services.”
Datalink said Cloud Complete can help companies bypass the challenges of cloud implementation. The solution’s ITaaS delivery capabilities can provide immediate value, demonstrate IT’s ability to provide brokered services and act as a cornerstone to build additional IT services.
More organizations could deploy ITaaS over the next several years, which is reflected in recent data.
The 2013 PMG Enterprise IT Survey of 329 North American IT professionals showed 51 percent of respondents said they believe ITaaS will bring cost savings to their respective organizations.
“Companies of all sizes can benefit from adopting enterprise application stores to manage ITaaS growth and mitigate shadow IT,” PMG Principal Joe LeCompte said in a prepared statement. “Sophisticated IT departments are leveraging service catalogs to improve the user experience by empowering internal users to order services through enterprise application stores.”
