Enterprises and cloud providers have focused most of their initialcloud strategies on Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). However more and more end users are now embracing 3rd-party business and personal cloud services in the workplace through grass rootsprojects, ad hoc adoption and consumerization. In response, IT is redefining cloud strategies to expand from basic infrastructure toan all-encompassing IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) model so they can centrally manage and deliver a broad array of cloud or IT services.
