    • Bank IT – First Mover with Many Successes Hans-Christian Boos, arago AG
    • … and Many Huge @§!%-ups
      • More than 80% of IT projects with a budget > USD 1M are considered failures.
      • 95% of all IT projects are not completed in time or in budget – that is if they are completed at all.
      • Still everything is marketed as great success – HAHA.
      Hans-Christian Boos, arago AG

    • The Market Will Take Care of It (IT?),,,
      • It is not the battle computer science vs. spaghetti code
      • It is TCO vs. business contribution
      Hans-Christian Boos, arago AG
    • … So What Does It Mean?
      • From a business perspective
        • IT must yield a well defined contribution to business
        • IT has to deal with more load with less budget
      • From a technical perspective
        • No more experiments !!!
        • Time-to-Market before „scientific beauty“.
      • From a social perspective
        • No more geek pampering !!!
        • Users are King!
      Hans-Christian Boos, arago AG
    • What Does this Mean for Infrastructure
    • Dynamic is the Magic Word
      • Virtualization : no fancy concept, but normal craftsmanship.
      • Speed : 14 days for setting up a new infrastructure is not a small miracle any more, in fact it is really slow.
      • Scalability : from „we own this anyway“ to „on demand“ models.
      Hans-Christian Boos, arago AG
    • Outsourcing !
      • IT cost is the main driver for outsourcing whole processes (BPO).
      • Security is no longer an excuse for „have to own“.
      • Identity Management makes tasks dividable.
      • Separation of infrastructure and applications through professional deployment procedures.
      Hans-Christian Boos, arago AG
    • What Does this Mean for Architects and Developers
    • Attack on Centralized Approaches ? !
      • RUP vs. Agile Development
      • SOA (religion) vs. SOA (idea)
      Hans-Christian Boos, arago AG
    • SOA– Reuse or Simply Overhead? Source: http://blogs.msdn.com/usisvde/archive/2009/01/06/soa-is-dead-long-live-well-services.aspx Hans-Christian Boos, arago AG
    • IT Experts Will Be Process Experts…
      • Old Style: 90% technology,10% process
      • Marketing now: 20% technology,80% process
      • Future: 5% technology, 95% process
      Process Design Hans-Christian Boos, arago AG Portal Service … Business Need JVM JAVA Container JSF Spring JSR 168 OSGI … Hibernate JNDI … Groovy …
    • Programming Is NOT Creative! Code Should Be Generated…
      • Creativity takes place BEFORE code is written. That is especially true for complex programming problems.
      • User interface, algorithms and architecture building are creative processes.

    • What Does this Mean for IT Operation
    • Banana Software Will Be Returned to Sender IT Operation Is Overloaded as Is!
      • Bad software will not go live!
      • SW != theoretically possible problem solution.

    • Factory Approaches and Their Limits…
      • Factory models are basd on economies of scale and therefor rely on standardization.
      • An excellent approach,
      • but
      • Economies of scale can not be extended ad infinitum.
      • Factories can only cover „standard“, but differentiation is a key factor for business success.

    • Cloud Computing or the Final Frontier for Administrators
      • Today:
        • Good Administrator = know the infrastructure you are taking care of like your own back yard.
        • Effective administration = Instant reaction to upcoming issues within the known architecture based upon EXPERIENCE.
      • With Clouds:
        • Application infrastructure changes by the second. Formally highly valued knowledge is worthless.
        • The experiences are tied to an static architecture an cannot be reapplied to a dynamic infrastructure.
