Should ITIL Collide with the Cloud?

In a recent blog post by Robert Stroud, he discusses the relevancy of the ITIL CMDB in the era of the cloud.

metaphor-car_lights_highway2_smIn a recent blog post by Robert Stroud, he discusses the relevancy of the ITIL CMDB in the era of the cloud. The question seemed to stir up a lot of emotions around cloud and standards (or the lack thereof). It seems to me that cloud could take a page out of the ITIL handbook…literally. With cloud, it is absolutely necessary to employ effective processes, policies and control. And that’s what ITIL is all about. Perhaps it’s time for ITIL and cloud to join forces. We shouldn’t be abandoning our old ways of doing things, but evolve them to address the hybrid world we live in today.

What are your thoughts of ITIL and cloud? Read Robert’s blog and join the conversation.

    become a new brand in the share market research with its accurate research. Proven
    itself always right whether market is bull or bear. Last week all paid clients
    booked handsome profit in NIFTY, BANKINIFTY & STOCKS. Now for the coming

    more tense, If it happens more then you will see a sharp fall in all world marketNSE BSE, STOCK TIPSbecause as we know all world run on
    crude & most of the crude comes from IRAQ. So be ready for a sharp fall so
    sell will be the best strategy for next week also. Traders can make a sell
    position in NIFTY around 7600-7650 with stoploss 7750 for the target of
    7300-7200.One can also make a sell call NIFTY 50 stocks as per NIFTY levels. You
