Delivering competitive advantage in the cloud. Role and future of CSB. 15-02-13 Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition
  3. 3. CLOUD COMPUTING 2 5-02-13 Cloud computing is a method of providing a set of shared computing resources that include applications, computing, storage, networking, development and deployment platforms, and business process. It turns computing assets into a shared pool of resources that are based on an underlying Internet foundation, so that it is easily acquired based on need. The cloud now represents much more than a WAN or the Internet — it provides services that include systems, data, and applications that were once traditionally located on premises, inside the enterprise firewall.

  4. 4. Cloud computing is fast becoming the wave of the future for both home and business computing. Because of this growing acceptance, we can expect an explosion of diverse cloud services providers in the coming years. These providers will rise up to meet the demand of organizations ready to embrace cloud computing technology more fully and outsource many facets of their business to the cloud. 3 5-02-13 Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition
  5. 5. 4 5-02-13 Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition Cloud-based technology provides leverage, scalability, and technology- refresh intervals that simply cannot be matched with traditional software models. Cloud technology supports three specific layers of service that build upon each other ,defined by Gartner, Inc., as follows: Managing Data in the Cloud
  6. 6. What CSB is ? With the advent of cloud computing, the cloud services brokerage has emerged. Every company that adopts a broad cloud computing strategy will encounter, and likely engage, multiple third-party cloud services providers. The published APIs (application programming interfaces) that enable organizations to interact with the various cloud services providers can be very complex. 55-02-13 Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition
  7. 7. A cloud services broker buffers your organization from the technical details of interacting with these clouds. By consolidating (or brokering) multiple cloud services into a single connection, a cloud services broker helps to simplify and leverage cloud services and can aggregate, normalize, customize, and enhance business information in the cloud. The cloud services broker role is rapidly being incorporated into IT services including consulting and system integration, application services, business process outsourcing and utility (BPO/BPU), and B2B commerce. 65-02-13 Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition
  8. 8. 75-02-13 A cloud services brokerage model provides the flexible technical infrastructure and domain expertise needed to define your unique business service and process requirements. Benefits of cloud-based data services include: ✓ Data harmonization and agility  Predictable anytime, anywhere access to IT resources  Flexible scaling of resources  Lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition
  9. 9. The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) defines a cloud broker as “an entity that manages the use, performance, and delivery of cloud services and negotiates relationships between cloud providers and cloud consumers.” A cloud services broker can help you find different cloud services providers to meet your various business needs and negotiate services with those providers. 8 5-02-13 Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition
  10. 10. 9 5-02-13 Integration in the Cloud Data translation and transformation woes To overcome the data translation/transformation challenge, one can adopt a hybrid approach: existing data translation stays on-premise, while all of the new or modified processes get implemented in the cloud. Alternatively, you can find a provider that can manage your data transformation/translation at a lower cost. Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition
  11. 11. Connectivity concerns One of the biggest worries people have about cloud computing is losing their connection to the cloud. A cloud provider is judged on availability. For that reason, the cloud provider builds its IT infrastructure for high availability and disaster recovery to ensure that service won’t be interrupted. 10 5-02-13 System scalability Besides being able to add hardware resources easily to handle expanding data volumes — a hallmark benefit of cloud computing — the ability to scale bandwidth is also an important consideration when moving business processes to the cloud. Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition
  12. 12. 115-02-13 Security sensitivities Data security is another concern for organizations that are considering moving data integration processes to the cloud. It’s important to find out what provisions the cloud provider has for security — including protecting sensitive data in transit to and from the cloud, securely storing data at rest, destroying sensitive data at the end of its lifecycle, and managing identity and access controls. This becomes particularly important for companies that must comply with numerous industry data security standards, government regulations, and privacy laws.

  13. 13. 125-02-13 Expert help The right cloud services provider will have both the data integration solutions and the expertise to work through technical issues and to help you come up with the best solution. Because they’ve lived through numerous conversions with a multitude of different organizations and across many vertical markets, and have already solved many process and technical complexities, experienced data integration cloud services providers are in the unique position of understanding the nuances of moving on-premise legacy systems to the cloud. Practicality wins out Most businesses implementing a cloud strategy will find that it makes perfect sense to migrate data integration processes to the cloud slowly and incrementally. This approach will allow your organization to become familiar with the cloud, gain trust in it, and start seeing the return on investment (ROI) more quickly than if you had moved everything at once.

  14. 14. 135-02-13 Data-as-a-Service The cloud is transforming the structure of the enterprise and how competitive advantage is achieved. The enterprise of the future is agile, adaptive, flexible, and collaborative. The opportunity is at the “edge of the enterprise” to foster innovation, increased efficiency, faster time-to-market, and value creation . Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition
  15. 15. 14 5-02-13 Cloud computing offers an incremental level of enterprise agility by enabling rapid introduction of new business applications by hosting them in a cloud computing platform (at lower cost). Cloud computing is about “loose coupling” between hardware and applications delivered as services, and thus requires a service- oriented architecture (SOA) to be successful. Cloud services brokers handle everything that happens “behind the scenes” to connect the enterprise to its various cloud services. This allows the enterprise to focus on the business and on how to gain competitive advantage by leveraging cloud services. Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition
  16. 16. 15 5-02-13 Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition Case Study: Mohawk Fine Papers Mohawk Fine Papers (www. mohawkpaper.com), the largest premium paper manufacturer in North America, successfully implemented a SOA and integration services backbone that combines application-to-application (A2A), B2B, and cloud-to- cloud services using Liaison’s cloud services brokerage integration-in-the-cloud solution. Liaison’s SOA-based cloud services brokerage backbone provides interoperability between Mohawk’s internal and external applications, services, and data, and extends this capability to Mohawk’s 300 customers and 100 suppliers,partners, and external service providers.
  17. 17. 16 5-02-13 Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition Using a single connection to all parties like banks, third-party logistics (3PL), and SaaS providers like Amazon.com, Authorize.net, Strike Iron, and Sugar CRM, the cloud services broker simplified Mohawk’s B2B and e-commerce strategies and sped up its adoption of cloud computing. The cloud services broker’s unified information architecture enables interoperability with Mohawk’s business partners and supports seamless integration of on-premises business services with cloud-based business services. Mohawk’s IT staff — consisting of only six employees — can now focus on the formation of business models and business process innovation rather than the technical complexities By shifting responsibility for cloud services integration to its cloud services broker, Mohawk has increased business agility in terms of both the range of integration capabilities and the speed and cost of execution.
  18. 18. 17 5-02-13 Role of the CSB Eliminate the complexity of managing the data integration requirements of interconnected systems and multiple connections by interfacing with other clouds on behalf of their customers. Handle the increasing complexity of managing multiple cloud services providers. Take care of data management and integration requirements to ensure that the services interoperate with one another, so that your organization doesn’t have to. Provide a singular facade service, giving organizations a single set of coherentuniform services that map to various cloud services providers Cloud services brokers also take care of all security and certificate requirements in the cloud, on behalf of your organization. Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition
  19. 19. 18 5-02-13 The Future of CSB Gartner predicts that by 2016, 50 percent of new integration outsourcing projects (compared with 10 percent in 2010) will be delivered by cloud services brokers rather than integration service providers. Cloud services brokers can help future-proof an organization’s business processes by readily scaling resources to help companies adapt to change. Cloud services brokers can also customize their services to meet your unique requirements. Cloud Services Brokerage For Dummies®, Liaison Special Edition
