However, virtualization also introduces additional challenges. The environment becomes more complex and harder to manage, especially once it evolves beyond niche deployments to support more operationally significant and business-critical IT services. Cooperation across management disciplines and departments becomes more critical. The incidence and rate of change both increase substantially.
Visibility is reduced so problem detection and resolution becomes harder and slower. Compliance is more difficult to achieve and maintain. And often brand new skill sets need to become involved and sometimes take ownership of virtualization strategies as virtualization becomes more pervasive.
