  • 10. Beyond Hype - Cloud is Changing Business & IT IT Service Use is Changing User behavior is changing the way IT organizations purchase & use IT services Any end user with a credit card can quickly provision new services Users take easiest, quickest, lowest-cost path to services that rapidly meet needs Cloud Challenges Traditional IT Internal IT is often slow to deploy & cumbersome, with manual approvals/delays End users are going around IT organizations directly to cloud service providers Cloud is Causing Internal IT to Evolve Cloud increases competition between internal IT & external cloud providers IT being forced to compete with public cloud services Provide services that are competitive & similar to cloud IT must function as a cloud service provider with similar technology & automation © Copyright 2012 Hitachi Consulting 9
  • 11. Addressing Cloud Complexity Enterprise Cloud Model is a Multi-Source Hybrid Mix Mix of public-private cloud services from multiple, different cloud providers With the cloud comes increased complexities, Disruptive for both business & IT Increased need for integration, aggregation, automation, customization Cloud is Complicating IT Service Delivery Cloud is enabling business transformation, but complicating IT service delivery Cloud is agile, but managing cloud complexity requires effort & expert resources Focus on Delivery Speed, switch from legacy solution lifecycles to cloud delivery Cloud is Changing the CIO Role IT must change to function similar to cloud a provider & use external providers Must evolve IT service delivery/support & human capital to integrate with cloud IT focus shifts from managing IT to services, clouds, outsourcers & relationships © Copyright 2012 Hitachi Consulting 10

  • 15. Cloud Direction for 2012-2013  Enterprise Hybrid Cloud Model - Public/Private Multi-Source Mix  Businesses already negotiating multiple cloud service contracts with different providers  Using multiple/different cloud services - more contracts, payments, providers to manage  Businesses need different cloud Services to work together for maximum efficiency & value  Increased Cloud Consumption with Enterprise Capabilities  Accelerated IaaS, PaaS & SaaS use with need for more adoption efficiency  Need for automation, integration, aggregation, governance & control of hybrid cloud  Lack of Cloud Skills, Resources More Difficult to Find/Acquire, Cloud Talent Gap Grows  Cloud Brokerage Services  Market Shifts to Brokers to Solve Cloud Consumption & Complexity Challenges  Public & Hybrid Cloud Service Broker Integration, On-Boarding, Security & Management  Without the right approach, cloud can cost more than it will save - complexity prevents value © Copyright 2012 Hitachi Consulting 14
