How to Manage Infrastructure Access with a Cloud Management Platform

In many organizations, IT is in the difficult position of having to adhere to corporate policies of controlling cloud service usage, while allowing end-users to have the flexibility they need to work effectively with their VMs. Implementing self-service provisioning capabilities removes much of the need for repetitive, high-maintenance, hands-on IT provisioning and frees up IT resources for more essential projects.
