  • While security remains the primary barrier to adoption for cloud, having a direct, private connection also deals with the performance issues which can be experienced by organisations accessing services over the internet. While organisations have extremely high-levels of control over performance on their LAN, the story is completely different when the internet becomes part of the equation. Your connection in this use-case is only as fast as the slowest part of the public internet, which means that as soon as the internet becomes at all congested, performance-levels experienced by end-users will suffer.
  • The mobile workforce – A real IT challenge

    2. 2. The Changing Business Landscape Working within a changing business environment:  Reduced regulation and changes in social housing  Changes in historic funding models for new homes  Changes in Welfare Reform Act, biggest change in the welfare system for 60 years  Growing commercial business streams of the business

    4. 4. Hybrid Solutions Backup Disaster Solution Security Recovery Exponential-e Network Hosted Telephony IaaS / AWS FMC Dual site SaaS - Solutions e.g Diligent Board Books
    5. 5. Market Experience Comparing models in the market is a challenge Service levels are maturing, but need to be negotiated Security (Encryption) is a key focus Security accreditations vary across providers Licensing needs - Mobility / SPLA licensing options Clouds have limitations and need to be understood Not all services can go Cloud, most companies need a level of Colo, control and governance Network integration key  Centralised apps  Secure core and access  Access from anywhere•
    6. 6. Securing theFuture:reliability,security &mobility
    7. 7. OverviewThe noise in the market is all about placing data in the cloud:security, compliance, scalability and risk.However, a good strategy is underpinned with the networkproviding the access on a fixed or mobile basis.• How secure is the route to the cloud?• Is the infrastructure fit for purpose?• Are bandwidth & infrastructure scalable?• What about security?
    8. 8. Why use Internet?• Security• Performance• Control• Quality of Service• CostFor cloud computing to truly become mainstream it’s time torethink how organisations connect to cloud services. If cloudremains synonymous with the internet, then it will also remainsynonymous with insecure and Unreliable connectivity.
    9. 9. Challenges• Are field workers wasting time and money coming to and from the office when they could go straight to a job?• Are people unable to do work from home or in transit because they can’t connect?• Could tenant services be delivered quicker and at less cost online?• Would greater connectivity make tenants lives better?• Do we have huge repositories of useful data we are not taking advantage of?• Would we lose vital data if a whole office went down or if computers were stolen?
