Cloud Service Management and Operations

Cloud Service Management and Operations is a response to increased competition between companies that necessitates a more proactive approach to the development and deployment of code and the ongoing support of that code. Additionally, companies have embraced cloud technologies including IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS to reduce the overhead costs associated with on-premise data centers. Moving applications to the cloud can increase the efficiency of System Management by reducing the requirement for specialized computer environments and reducing the amount of personnel needed to manage the hardware and software.
