Chris Swan, Captial SCF, “Real life experiences getting data in and out of the cloud” Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Getting data in and out of the cloud 24 th September 2009
  • 2. What were we doing? Old email service $$$ New email service $ Mobile sync for contacts & calendar
  • 3. How did we do it? Old email service New email service IMAP client Export Import
  • 4. How could this be done better? Old email service New email service The direct route Export Import The long way ‘round IMAP client Export Import
  • 5. This is of course a trivial example… but, Why did it work?
    • Standardised interface
    • IMAP
      • Both services supported this interface, as did the client application
      • The interface was bidirectional
    • Standardised data format
    • email
      • Both services could parse the same data
  • 6. If we were dealing with something less trivial Why wouldn’t it work?
    • Lack of standardised interfaces
    • Lack of standardised data format
    • ETL(aaS) becomes a big deal
      • to cope with impedance mismatches
    • But… beware bitrot on Transformation.
      • Target schemas may not support full range of import data set
  • 7. Thank you for listening Grab me during a break or the networking session if you have questions
