If done right, it has the potential to provide companies with a unique set of tools to innovate and accelerate business goals.
Everything as a Service (XaaS) is consuming a bigger slice of IT budgets every year, with figures from Deloitte suggesting that for 71% of companies, XaaS makes up more than half of their organisations enterprise IT.
XaaS recognises the vast number of products, tools, functionalities and platforms that IT- vendors, service providers and integrators now deliver to (IT) users as-a-service over a network – typically the internet – in a pay-per-use format. The as-a-service model can supply continuous maintenance, scalability, and flexibility in our ever-changing world. In an era of business disruption, the evolution towards consuming IT in a pay-per-use model enables IT departments to invest more wisely, speedup time to market and strengthen their agility.
A rise in as-a-service offerings to support ICT infrastructures, whether it’s across networks, security or even updating hardware, is part of an overall evolution of technology, rather than a sudden revolution.

Scalability and flexibility to achieve business goals
The as-a-service concept is not new, but the rise of delivering business outcomes rather than just technology, services or functionality is one which is gathering momentum fast, pushing the XaaS movement to new heights. Flexible architectures, easy to onboard and pay-per-use are notable examples of XaaS characteristics. Helping IT departments to quickly achieve business value and lowering the hurdles of high upfront technology investments. Allowing for less risk of failure and being able to invest capital more wisely.
Providing financial predictability whilst increasing agility
Paying based on the usage levels of specific services, components or functionalities makes innovation a practical choice and easier to obtain for many industries, by giving scope to scale and flex services when needed.
As upfront capital investments are no longer needed it lowers the probability of high financial loses if technology is not adopted by (IT) users or business goals change. You can simply scale down. This results in more agility within the overall IT landscape so you can react faster to business needs. Plus, as consumption is based upon predefined indicators, financial costs become more predictable.
The intensity of XaaS offers are numerous – from Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). With all of them resulting in various levels of financial predictability and overall agility of your IT department.
