So now that we’re all finally starting to understand the corporate cloud, IaaS and even be able to weigh up the advantages and identify certain problems that arise from binning the hard iron, the boundaries are getting pushed a step further with serverless, the latest buzz word in IT disruption.

Understanding Serverless

Serverless you say, what’s that? “Serverless means you don't have to think about the servers that you rely on to deploy and run an application. The idea is for the servers to exist in the background, as a resource that scales up or down automatically, according to the application's needs.” a tidy definition supplied by this article in Channel Futures, which goes on to note: “In essence, serverless computing is a way of taking the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) model to the extreme. Not only does serverless computing relieve you of the need to maintain your own infrastructure, but it saves you from the hassle of having to provision or administer infrastructure in any way.

  • Total spend on IT infrastructure products deployed in cloud environments is slated to hit $44.2 billion in 2017, according to the latest analysis from IDC (see more on that and other impressive figures here). Cloud infrastructure-as-a-service is going mainstream and it’s impact is being felt by everyone in your company, from your loyal IT staff to your graphic designer. But right in the firing line is the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) who bears the brunt of the Cloud shift, principally because they are the one paying the bill, and it’s a bill that’s not always easy to decipher. 

     

    Your CFO needs not only to be aware of Cloud technology how it’s different from traditional in-house ITbut also understand its long-term benefits and advantages, and be able to drive how that budget is spent.

     

    While cloud technology adoption is growing across all business sizes and sectors, making the move might not appear a no-brainer to your CFO. The reason? A lack of budget control and lack of forecastability. And potentially, a lack of technical know-how that has now become mandatory.
