“IT Management as a Service gives organisations more flexible alternatives to traditional IT management software. This is important for two reasons. As workloads move into the cloud, the IT management tools can move with them. IT Management as a Service also insulates organisations from additional upgrade and maintenance headaches. Why have IT management software that adds to your IT management overhead?”
Cameron McNaught, Executive Vice President Solutions, International Business, Fujitsu
