Integrated cloud service management (ICSM) is an approach to cloud computing to manage the commissioning, decommissioning and maintenance of all cloud products and services sourced by an organization. Integrated cloud service management enables centralized management of cloud computing solutions portfolio through purpose-built software tools and methodologies.
Brief Description of Integrated Cloud Service Management
Integrated cloud service management is a process that is mostly used for deploying or migrating to a cloud computing solution. Its key objective is to provide the organization / cloud administrators with a way to manage cloud services. ICSM automates the orchestration, creation, delivery and management of cloud services. ICSM also ensures the maximum level of authority, control, and governance on all cloud resources and the hosted/deployed data by a particular organization.
ICSM can manage SaaS, IaaS, PaaS and Hybrid cloud delivery models. The complete process is typically automated through an Integrated Cloud Management Software . ICSM is also applicable in moving from one cloud vendor to another with the basic objective of getting a seamless integration and minimal costs.
