Is the infrastructure management world turning into a software engineering business?

In today’s world, information and technology is omnipresent in most things we do and consume, as well as in most aspects of business operations. In addition, the advent of cloud is transforming your business more than you think.
While it may offer its challenges, it can also generate significant value — not just for the IT organization and its direct users, but also for the business teams across the enterprise. Beyond the obvious digital landscape evolution or the financial pay-per-use model, let’ s understand the real technological change hidden behind all this, and its impact on your teams. Indeed, this requires a shift in thinking about how data and software can be developed and managed.
Let me highlight here special considerations and the new skills required to be part of such integrated teams.

  • How applications and infrastructure are reshaping into software-controlled objects and why a software-based control is growingly becoming an unavoidable necessity
  • A detailed look at the impact on liability and risk exposure; as well as what skillsets and techniques are required to mitigate these risks
