  2. 2. What is Cloud Collaboration? Cloud collaboration is the ability to use Document Management functions and applications in a cloud environment – creation, storage, retrieval, check in/out, version control, records management, security, search, audit history, etc. For this presentation, we will focus cloud-based content information management (CIM) systems that provide the basic functionality of a standard document management system but do it as a cloud offering.In association with: Presented by: Porter-Roth Associates
  3. 3. Some Cloud Essentials  SaaS – A hosted application accessed through a Web Browser. Provides an user interface with applications, such as blogs, email, content management, office productivity, CRM, ERP…  Examples include: Box, Salesforce, NetSuite, Gmail, Yammer...  PaaS – An in-cloud platform for the development and deployment of cloud software applications such as development tools/languages, frameworks, management tools…  Examples include:, Azure, Google AppEngine...  IaaS – Provides virtual or physical hardware resources offered as a service. Provides virtual machines, virtual storage, virtual infrastructure, and S/W & H/W assets that can be provisioned for hosting applications.

  4. 4. Deployment Models  Public Cloud - A public cloud is one based on the standard cloud computing model, in which a service provider makes resources, such as applications and storage, available to the general public over the Internet. Public cloud services may be free or offered on a pay-per-usage model.  Private Cloud - Private cloud is the implementation of cloud services on resources that are dedicated to your organization, whether they exist on- premises or off-premises.  Community Cloud - A community cloud infrastructure is shared by several organizations and supports a specific community that has shared concerns (e.g., mission, security requirements, policy, and compliance considerations).  Hybrid Cloud - A hybrid cloud infrastructure is a composition of two or more clouds (private, community, or public) that remain unique entities but are bound together by standardized or proprietary technology that enables data and application portability.In association with: Presented by: Porter-Roth Associates
  5. 5. Cloud Collaboration Applications An Attempt at a Definition  Store and Retrieve – very basic and functions like an FTP site. Typically no document management capabilities – but can be useful.  Content Collaboration – offers basic storage and retrieval but also includes document management capabilities that allow multiple people to collaborate on content  Platform – offers a complete environment including storage and retrieval, content management, and office productivity applications such as word processing, spreadsheet, presentations, calendaring, workflow, etc.  Functional Applications – offers functional applications such as project management, CRM, ERP, HR in addition to simple storage and retrieval of documents  Social Networking – offers the ability for social communities to be formed in addition to simple storage and retrieval of documentsIn association with: Presented by: Porter-Roth Associates
