"Cloud" computing provides significant advantages and enormous cost savings by allowing IT infrastructure to be provisioned as a ubiquitous, metered, unit priced and on demand service. However, the other major resourcing issue faced by CIO’s is the provision of skilled labour to develop, support and maintain a increasing wide range of IT applications.

This session will show attendees how the worldwide pool of freelance developers, the "Crowd", can be utilised as a ubiquitous, metered, unit priced and on demand resource pool to work in the "Cloud" to improve responsiveness to customer demands, reduce development timeframes and achieve significant cost savings.

Although the crowd can bring enormous benefits in terms of cost and agility, there are some technical and business barriers to adoption in large organisations. This presentation will discuss the barriers and, using some real examples, will explain how GoSource overcomes them.

    • Using  scalable  on-­‐demand  freelancer  capacity,  cut  IT  project  costs  by  over  50%   without  reduc@ons  in  quality  or  security.   Quality  from  the  crowd  
    • Contents   1.      A  refresher  on  “Cloud  Compu@ng”     2.      A  refresher  on  “Crowd  Resourcing”     3.      Poten@al  Cost  Savings   4.      Barriers  to  use  at  the  enterprise  level     5.      GoSource  Solu@on  Overview    6.      Case  studies     7.      GeTng  Started  
    • COST   Typical  Enterprise  Infrastructure   Problems   Waste   A  “Cloud”  Refresher  :  It’s  a  procurement  model   Metered,  unit-­‐priced,  ubiquitous  and  on-­‐demand   IT  Capacity   User  Demand   Life  in  the  Clouds   User  Demand   Auto-­‐scaling  IT  Capacity   Turns  IT  infrastructure  into  a  u@lity  –  like  electricity.    
    • COST   Life  in  the  Crowds  Typical  Enterprise  Staffing   Under  U@lisa@on   Delivery  Problems   A  “Crowd”  Refresher  –  It’s  a  procurement  model   Metered,  unit-­‐priced,  ubiquitous  and  on-­‐demand   Project  Demand   Project  Staff   IT  Project  Staff   Project  Demand   Scalable  Freelancer  Capacity   So  “Crowd”  is  “Cloud”  –  just  for  people  instead  of  infrastructure.

    • But  it’s  not  that  easy  to  do  it  right!   1.  How  do  I  find  the  right  people  for  my  team?   From  millions  of  freelancers  hundreds  of  skills,  dozens  of  countries.       GoSource  is  designed  to  solve  all  these  issues   2.      And  what  about  their  security  clearance?   Freelancers  are  not  cleared  and  cannot  access  corporate  networks.   3.      And  how  do  I  control  &  audit  what  they  do?   Produc9vity,  quality  control,  source  code  control,  documenta9on  management.   4.      And  how  to  transi@on  to  produc@on  &  sustaining?   Release  management  from  crowd  code  to  your  produc9on  environment.   5.  And  how  do  I  contract  &  procure  all  this?   Mul9ple  suppliers,  currencies,  payment  terms,  and  none  on  panels.
