Los Angeles, CA: Stratalux Inc., a leading managed cloud services provider, announced today the publication of a white paper, detailing seven principals for extracting value from IT Operations (ITOps) and creating a more cost-effective and business-focused Cloud Operations (CloudOps) revenue center.

Recognizing that many IT and business executives are struggling to separate cloud hype from reality, the Stratalux white paper summarizes the traditional role of IT Operations, identifying key responsibility areas of management and maintenance of computer and software assets and then reviews the business principals behind the transition from IT Operations to private and public clouds. The paper goes on to detail different principles that allows an organization to exit the management of physical devices, and how that transition can create a Cloud Operations organization that is focused on how to best serve a company’s business strategy.

Regarding the role of IT in the emerging post-cloud world, the Stratalux white paper notes that by applying these principles, IT is slated to gain in stature and take on new and more advanced responsibilities within organizations. In the “instrument everything” world of the cloud, the paper notes that, IT focuses on analytics, automation and monitoring of areas such as scale, quality, incident management and version control, by leveraging code to automate repetitive tasks. Additionally, the paper continues, IT’s role will change from one which configures and manages infrastructure, to one that develops infrastructure, enabling services such as Infrastructure-as-Code, Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment, and self-healing infrastructures all of which fall under the broader “DevOps” movement.

The business drivers toward Cloud Operations combined with the evolution of IT Operations has created tremendous opportunity for business and career growth.
