An interesting article came out on CIO.com this week, talking about the coming changes in IT infrastructure as it moves to a more service-based approach.

 

What if you really didn't need your own full-scale IT infrastructure anymore? Anything you needed done could simply be handled through a simple network connection. Call it "IT as a service."

 

This piece says it would be more easily managed, responsive and cheaper than today's enterprise, and would face no greater a security threat. It would also deliver the benefits of large-scale computing right down to the smallest of organizations.

 

Virtualization and integrated management are already starting to make it happen. The question is, will it provide a compelling reason to give up on legacy systems?
