Is IT ready for the real shakeup?

According to Charles Cooper at CNet IT managers may have a new advantage in working with hardware and software vendors -pay as you go capacity. He suggests that this can remove IT managers from the upgrade treadmill.

If organizations expect to benefit from a pay as you go strategy they need to have a way to bring servers and appplications up so the available capacity can be provisioned and used. Without the ability to manage those servers and applications in a quality and efficient manner and the pay as you go model is reduced to just the pay model.

Datacenter Automation technologies like Opsware provide the ability for IT groups to capture their environment and best practices in a way that can be applied to making good use of either traditional enterprise IT or pay as you go models. Before you worry about getting more capacity gain control of that you already have and reduce cost.
