A new model of IT

This model delivers IT in at least two modes, combining the best of traditional sequential infrastructure with fast, agile IT services in order to improve productivity and show measurable business value.

Mode 2 is agile, non-linear, and used for systems of engagement. Cycle times are measured in days and weeks, ideal for projects where agility and time to market are critical.

A new model of IT

This model delivers IT in at least two modes, combining the best of traditional sequential infrastructure with fast, agile IT services in order to improve productivity and show measurable business value.

This IT operating model addresses Gartner’s Bimodal IT approach. Mode 1 is traditional, sequential and used for systems of record. It’s characterized by long cycle times measured in months, and stability is a priority.

AppDev teams are often unfamiliar with architecting infrastructure or automating infrastructure provisioning. A DevOps enablement team helps educate AppDev teams on DevOps best practices and provides feedback to Ops teams on where to expand cloud services.

Right services, right delivery, real results

Cloud services are traditionally made available to consumers via a self-service portal, but AppDev teams are demanding access to infrastructure as code via an API direct to the cloud. Implementing a DevOps enablement team will not only help AppDev teams quickly improve deployment speed and quality; they also provide feedback to Ops teams to influence the IT service offerings.

As DevOps best practices move to infrastructure as code, IT organizations will be expected to provide an API to their cloud alongside a self-service portal.

Implementing a DevOps enablement team will not only help AppDev teams quickly improve deployment speed and quality; they also provide feedback to Ops teams to influence the IT service offerings.

Self-service portals allow users to request IT services on-demand and provide a means of two-way communication between the IT organization and their customers.

Third generation platforms based on unstructured PaaS, like containers, or structured PaaS, like Pivotal Cloud Foundry, provide additional capabilities for cloud native applications.

Moving beyond Infrastructure-as-a-Service

AppDev teams need more than Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). To boost productivity they need to leverage 2nd Gen Platforms-as-a-Service (PaaS), like databases and middleware, or 3rd Gen PaaS, like containers or Cloud Foundry. By using a combination of these services, IT can deliver true Environment-as-a-Service: multi-VM application blueprints you can activate in seconds.

PaaS offers AppDev more advanced capabilities than IaaS—like Database-as-a-Service (Oracle, MSSQL) or Middleware-as-a-Service (Web Methods).

IT organizations benefit immensely from bringing these services together under one cloud team to deliver Infrastructure-as-a-Service.

The journey begins

Many IT organizations start with building a greenfield private cloud, often expanding into the hybrid cloud, while brownfield teams also invest in automation to deliver more flexible, efficient IT services. These efforts should be coordinated to create a unified cloud team with a single cloud management platform.

Brownfield, or traditional legacy infrastructure, are also becoming more efficient by investing in automation. For better consistency and customer experience, it is best to combine those efforts with those of the Greenfield team.

Many IT organizations start by creating a new Cloud team to implement a greenfield private cloud from the ground up. Automation and proactive monitoring using a Cloud Management Platform is key to their success.

As leading industry analyst Gartner outlines in their Bimodal IT model, technology is now being delivered in at least two parallel styles, or modes:

Mode 1

  • Traditional
  • Sequential
  • For systems of record

Mode 2

  • Software-Defined/Cloud-based
  • Agile, non-linear
  • For systems of engagement

IT must find the balance point between velocity and ceremony based on the business needs.

Most businesses will need to operate in both modes, and in some cases run in multiple modes in parallel, to deliver the IT services that internal and external consumers demand.




IT organizations that are slow to evolve face major consequences:

  • Slow, risky application development
  • Reduced business productivity
  • Increased shadow IT
  • Loss of market share
  • Inability to attract and retain top talent
  • Greater risk of security breaches

The world today is defined and enabled by technology.

Your business needs the IT organization to transform its technology, people and processes in order to provide more responsive and agile services.
