Transcript of "Riaan Van Nierkirk, CIO at Mc Gregor - Can business transformation be successfully enabled by the cloud"

  1. 1. Riaan van Niekerk Can Business Transformationbe successfully enabled by Cloud?
  2. 2. The current CIO Dilemma
  3. 3. IT does not live up to Business expectations“More than seven in ten business decision-makers believe that their business’ IT do not facilitate their need to achieve their priorities for 2012” - Matt Davies (BusinessComputingWorld)
  4. 4. CIO vs CDO“The Chief Digital Officer will prove to be the most exciting strategic role in the decade ahead.” and“The Chief Digital Officer plays in the place where the enterprise meets thecustomer, where the revenue is generated, and the mission accomplished. They’re in charge of digital business strategy.” - Gartner (David Willis)
  5. 5. CIO vs CMOSome forecasts say the CMO will soon be calling the shots for IT;while I don’t buy into that, I do agree that CIOs who choose to sitback and wait for “the business” to tell them what to do will end up reporting to the CMO within a year or two. - Forbes (Bob Evans)
  6. 6. Am I on par with my Cloud Strategy?“By 2014, IT organizations in 30% of Global 1000 companies willbroker (aggregate, integrate and customize) two or more cloud services for internal and external users, up from 5% today.” - Gartner(2013)
  7. 7. The future CIO might have to choose IT leader Business leader (focus on tech apsects) (ensure projects are conceived and executed in the service of customers, business execution and engagement)

  14. 14. Cloud Drivers– Economic (Outsource non-essential Tasks to reduce IT Costs)– Strategic (IT as a service, more responsive to business needs)– Flexibility/Time to market (accelerated enterprise mobility)
  15. 15. Cloud Barriers– Security/Data Privacy (compliance mandates, jurisdictional issues, varying SLAs in their infancy)– Performance– Openness (vendor lock in, data ownership, application and service portability, high switching costs?)
  16. 16. Advantages to CIO– Cost Reduction (Reallocate direct resources from commodity IT tasks to more strategic initiatives, less client side management, reduced application support costs)– Strategic (run IT as an internal service provider – know what IT costs to deliver to do potential chargeback)
  17. 17. Challenges to CIO– Security (Identity and data protection, risk management)– Management (managing virtual workloads vs. physical infrastructure)– Migration and integration (legacy applications are difficult to integrate or mobilise)– Managing multivendor relationships (integration between different SaaS apps, monitoring SLAs from multiple providers)
  18. 18. What is the difference between a Cloud Strategy and Cloud as a Business Enabler?
  19. 19. Cloud strategy– Journey to improve overall IT Optimisation (datacentre conditioning, consolidation, virtualisation, service management and cloud deployment options)– Encompasses public, Hybrid and Private Cloud– Company will have to progress through several steps in order to have a meaningful cloud journey physical > virtual / cloud readyness > cloud
