This timely webinar will detail how IT organizations must transform and automate their processes to look like today’s industrial factories to accelerate and scale in the age of on-demand IT.

rPath, the service factory for on-demand IT, today released a new video cartoon, “A Celebration of Thinking Differently,” on YouTube. The brief video invokes a change in thinking about what IT needs to do to survive in the enterprise cloud’s coming of age in 2011 — a time of increased demand for speed and scale. In doing so, the video offers a lighthearted view of the “No More Images!” movement, which advocates shifting the focus from managing system images to managing the IT supply chain and image construction pipeline.
