Q: How do IT ops leaders compete with service-centered cloud brokers?
A: In manufacturing, you have a process called engineer-to-order, which is project centric. When you engineer to order, you’re doing a one-off for a customer. At the other extreme … in a configure-to-order model, you take a standard component and plug it in. This is the key concept I try to convey around IT services strategy: you want to shift from engineer-to-order to configure-to-order. Doing projects makes you slow, unpredictable, and costly. If you go configure-to-order, it makes you very predictable, very fast, and a little bit less flexible. Of course you have to find your own balance. … You can make incremental changes. You don’t have to do it all at once.
