In episode 42 of the ITSM Crowd, we were joined by Cloudsoft COO, Steve Chambers. Steve is a cloud veteran, and joined us to share his expert views on why cloud is so important and how it affects service managers.
We started the session discussing some cloud definitions, including public cloud, private cloud and hybrid cloud. Along the way, Steve explained some of the benefits of cloud adoption, and also some of the areas to look out for.
We then moved to discuss the impact of cloud on the service management role. Steve sees a role developing for Cloud Service Delivery Managers, who can help organisations to get the best from their cloud while still keeping an eye on areas like security, availability and cost. Steve also provided some great tips on where to get started if you're currently a service delivery manager who wants to learn more.
