The experience of transitioning to the cloud

  1. 1. Transitioning to the cloud Experiences of a UK Government Department Ian Winship, Client Director, Eduserv www.eduserv.org.uk
  2. 2. Before the cloud Long term contracts • Primary IT Partner – global SI • Application specific ‘stacks’ – application, maintenance, hosting
  3. 3. The opportunity Most existing IT contracts were due to expire during Q1 2013
  4. 4. After the cloud
  5. 5. Transitioning Use SIAM to arbitrate/set standards Allow time for overlap before current vendor contract expiration • Discovery of re-existing services/assets • Commercial and procurement skills
  6. 6. Transitioning Don’t underestimate the effect of new commercial model on business planning • Commissioning and decommissioning systems • Variable monthly changes vs annual or one-off purchase order?
  7. 7. Cloud First Products are easier to procure More competition means better value IT systems have less start-up cost Cost profile can reflect usage closely
  8. 8. Learnings CloudStore products are not necessarily easy to compare with each other Learning: Shortlist and request clarification
  9. 9. Learnings You will be procuring multiple ‘Towers’ at the same time Learning: appoint SIAM first Cross-tower liaison is vital Learning: establish regular cross-supplier technical forum
