XaaS — Everything-As-A-Service Moves into the Mainstream

Everything as a Service (XaaS) is no longer a phenomenon, nor is it a passing fad. It is a strategy that should have already been adopted by CIOs and IT leaders. In fact, if you’re not already “on the train,” then you’ve probably missed it.

For an enterprise, XaaS offers the chance to improve the way that IT serves you, your enterprise, and your customers. It is an enabler of the transformation of IT into an integral component of every part of the business. It offers the opportunity to deliver countless services over cloud, rather than focusing on local or on-site. To date, cloud has moved beyond its early stages of representing solely a means for off-site data back-up. Now, cloud has the ability to rapidly evolve and virtually support communications, content, commerce, applications, and almost anything that is thrown its way. In short, XaaS offers enterprises the opportunity to vastly enhance their use of software and hardware, as they optimize their entire approach to IT.

Over the past year, XaaS has shown a continued ability to provide enhanced agility, increased levels of innovation, faster response time, adaptive capabilities to changing markets, contained costs, and the reduced need for capital. Over the rest of 2016 it is expected that XaaS services will continue to expand, as CIOs and IT leaders who hadn’t already embraced XaaS play catch-up in an attempt to leverage the benefits of this innovative IT strategy.
