  • Paradigm shift: IT as an hindrance • Increasing expenditures – Higher cost for design, development, implementation and maintenance – Higher energy cost • Rigid – Static supply of IT resources – Based on traditional client-server principle • Too complex to change – Spaghetti of interfaces – Various IT models © 2010 KPMG ELLP, the member firm of KPMG International, a Swiss cooperative.

  • Paradigm shift: cloud computing as the model of choice • Transparent cost structures – Pay for what you use – Marginal CapEx and operational cost • Flexible – Easy to upscale and to downsize – Accessible from multiple points on the internet • On-demand – Instantly available – IT as commodity © 2010 KPMG ELLP, the member firm of KPMG International, a Swiss cooperative. All rights reserved. Printed in the Netherlands
  • Considerations: orchestration • From technological complexity to governance challenges – Hybrid environment of internal IT, outsourced parts and cloud computing – Complex ecosystem of the cloud (integrators, aggregators, vendors and third parties) • Less control – IT assets outside the internal perimeter – Vendor lock-in • Ever changing landscape – Hard-to-predict pace of changes and dominant standards – New services and niche players © 2010 KPMG ELLP, the member firm of KPMG International, a Swiss cooperative. All rights reserved. Printed in the Netherlands
  • Considerations: assurance on security as an example • External data storage – Logging and monitoring – Backup and recovery • Multi-tenancy/resource pooling – Data - and resource segregation – Identity & Access Management • Conflicting controls and legislations – Vendor’s security controls versus internal requirements – Global delivery of services versus national/local legislations © 2010 KPMG ELLP, the member firm of KPMG International, a Swiss cooperative. All rights reserved. Printed in the Netherlands
  • Considerations: assurance on security in practice • Standards for ‘traditional IT’ – Partly obsolete and partly irrelevant – Static standards versus dynamic reality • Free format auditing statements – Many variations on approach and controls – Wide intervals • Competent auditors? – Existing standards and controls as starting points – Emphasis on IT management processes © 2010 KPMG ELLP, the member firm of KPMG International, a Swiss cooperative. All rights reserved. Printed in the Netherlands
  • Steps forward: devise strategy • Which parts can be moved to the cloud? – Define available cloud services versus business needs – Determine commodity services versus business specific services • What is the business case? – Assess options – Assess depreciation and life cycle of IT assets • What is the roadmap? – Define migration/transition – Define architecture and orchestration © 2010 KPMG ELLP, the member firm of KPMG International, a Swiss cooperative.

  • Steps forward: assess and manage risks • What is the ecosystem? – Identify parties involved and their roles – Assess different incident/problem scenarios • What is the difference? – Assess current situation versus future state – Identify which risks and mitigations are applicable • Which dimensions must be covered? – Assess risks on various dimensions (compliance, vendor, technology, data, operation, finance) – Determine responsibilities and accountabilities © 2010 KPMG ELLP, the member firm of KPMG International, a Swiss cooperative. All rights reserved. Printed in the Netherlands
  • Steps forward: keep your eyes open • What is the impact on the (IT) organization? – Diminishing role of the internal IT department – Importance of contract - and vendor management – New possibilities and responsibilities • What will the cloud market bring? – More confusion and diffusion – Requirement-driven services – Oligarchisation of IT © 2010 KPMG ELLP, the member firm of KPMG International, a Swiss cooperative.
