Europe is Serious about the Cloud

CloudToday is the 4th of July, which means it is a slow day here in the US. So this is a good moment to put the spotlight on Europe.

Apparently, sixty percent of IT decision makers in Europe say they will redeploy their IT budgets to pay for cloud projects. That is according to a recent IDG Research study. What's most interesting about this study is that Europe is looking at the cloud as a strategic benefit rather than a quick way to reduce costs. "Seventy-one percent of European CIOs at large organizations say agility tops their agendas, while only 44 percent point to reducing the IT infrastructure investment."

Naturally, these cloud services need to be managed. That's where ITRP enters the picture. ITRP is already available in Europe and to ensure that European organizations can rely on local ITRP experts, we have started to expand our partner network there.

InfraVisionToday it is our pleasure to announce our partnership with InfraVision, one of the true IT service management leaders in Europe. With ITSM consultants in the U.K., Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands, InfraVision is ready to assist organizations with their ITRP implementation and integrations.
