On Demand

Cloud technologies such as Azure require evolved operations and service delivery models not available in traditional ITSM solutions. Microsoft services responded to the challenge by defining an evolved approach to IT service management called "Modern Service Management" to address gaps between managing traditional IT systems on-premise, and managing virtualized on-premise services or cloudborn services such as Azure, and Office 365.
