Recently I was asked to sit down and do an interview for SearchSOA to discuss the concept of a CSB (Cloud Services Brokerage).
What I found interesting in discussing the topic, as it applies to cloud trends in general, was this idea that as companies move more of their business assets (processes, data, metadata, etc.) into the cloud, that a new problem arises – how to manage multiple cloud services?
Obviously one of the main motivators for the CSB concept is that the consumer should not have to. However, I don’t want to make this point lightly, as it may or may not be obvious to all parties who are looking to migrate aspects of their business to the cloud.
Hopefully, you will find the interview helpful in answering some of these questions, or getting you to think about others that may come up. If you have further questions or comments, please post them on them here or contact me.
