Build vs Buy: Adapting the Enterprise to the Cloud-Native Mindset

The cloud-native model has inspired new approaches to the distribution of elastic, pay-as-you-go, on-demand IT hosted services. This has given rise to the Anything (or Everything) as a Service (XaaS) landscape, where organizations have the flexibility to choose specifically which IT or business capabilities they can perform internally and which they can better source from cloud services vendors. Organizations can decide whether to build their own XaaS “catalog” of services, or buy them from external providers or even use a combination of these approaches. 

In this guide, we examine:

  • The core concept of XaaS
  • Some common delivery models for XaaS
  • How a XaaS mindset opens new ways to improve operational agility and deliver cost savings
