In this session you will get an understanding how to evaluate your company's or applications' cloud readiness. We will cover aspects such as workload and data categorisation, automation levels, design for failure and cost-optimised architectures. We will be looking at typical application evolution paths from tightly coupled physical systems, in some cases through virtualisation, to cloud-native, or cloud-ready, loosely coupled, distributed and automated solutions.

This session will also take a look at typical enterprise business processes, from procurement to development and testing, and operations and support. We will introduce known-to-work cloud-ready business processes and new best practices, through customer use cases from companies who are cloud native, or have undergone a cloud transformation to get there.

Assessing Your Company's Cloud Readiness Assessing Your Company's Cloud Readiness Presentation Transcript

  • Assessing Your Company’s Cloud Readiness
  • Why? What? How?
  • Why? What? How?
  • There are many reasons to move to the Cloud #1: Agility #2: Platform Breadth #3: Continual Iteration and Innovation Our 44th Price Reduction ü #4: Cost Savings and Flexibility
  • There are many ways to move to the Cloud #1: Development and Test #2: New Workloads #3 Supplement existing workloads #4: Integrate Cloud Workloads with Existing On-premises systems #5: Migrate Existing Applications #6 DC Migrations and All-In

  • Why? What? How?
  • Strategy & Business Goals
  • Cloud Strategy – Business Goals Alignment Topline Efficiency
  • Cloud – Tool or Competitive Advantage? Cloud-first Strategy? Strategic Investment?
  • Applications
  • Application Architecture Monolithic & static, Tightly coupled, Specific & dedicated (v)HW BoM, Design for Failover, Stateful, Scale up EBS, S3, RDS, ELB, Cloudwatch.. Monolithic SW, Leveraging Infrastructure Services SOA & Microservices, Loosely coupled, Adaptive, Design for Failure, Stateless, Scale out
  • Options for Migrating Applications to AWS • Migrated without change (Forklift or ‘Lift-and-Shift’) – Map on-premises technology services to AWS services – Does not provide the full benefit of AWS but less effort is needed • Migrated with some improvements (Embrace AWS) – Full re-development is not justified but specific AWS services are used – Provides more benefits with more effort • Migrated by re-architecting and re-developing (Optimise for AWS) – Re-architecting and re-developing is justified – Can provide full benefits but needs the most effort
  • Cloud SOA & Microservices Separate services Exposed via API Scale, assure separately Buy Commercial SW Build Develop in-house Own skills & IP Open Source Fully open source In-house support Open Source + + Enterprise Support e.g. Red Hat
  • Processes
  • R&D Processes Rare Release Events “Waterfall Methodology” Frequent Release Events “Agile Methodology” Smaller Effort “Minimized Risk” Larger Effort “Increased Risk” Time Change Time Change
  • test plan code build Continuous Integration Agile Development Source http://www.collab.net deploy operate collaboration value DevOps release Continuous Delivery
  • Data Value Strategy
  • Data Value Strategy
  • State of Data
  • Map Data Sources Customer-facing Applications? Internal Systems? External – Social / Open / Commercial Feeds?
  • Data Sources Have already? Initial Data Set Being Generated? Fresh Data Throwing Away? Ignored
  • Storage Single source of truth? Durability? Capacity? Cost?
  • S3 as a “single source of truth” S3 Courtesy http://techblog.netflix.com/2013/01/hadoop-platform-as-service-in-cloud.html
  • Data Quality Control Control Data Correct Data Validate Data Enrich Data
  • Data Value Strategy – Business Goals Alignment Time to Result Cost of Result
  • Data Value Add
  • Data Exposure – via API Internal Partners Customers Ecosystem

  • The Journey Brings Fast Learning & Early Wins Explore Adopt Expand Transform Non- Production Existing Web Workloads New Capability Workloads Legacy Migration
  • Migration process: collect information, assess the portfolio and decide on migration • Collect information on the applications • Assess applications against migration criteria • Decide which applications should be migrated, when and how (as well as the data required by the applications) Assessment is part of the practice of Application Portfolio Management.
