  • Goal: Frame the enterprise cloud computing conversation by highlighting the evolution from traditional to cloud computing models. Define industry taxonomy around private and public clouds. A couple of data points from internal Microsoft research: 41 percent of our customers are using services across datacenters on premises and in public clouds. 80 percent of our customers over the next three to five years will use hybrid models.Talking pointsTransition from previous slide Let’s start with the definitive evolution that's happening within IT.Customers are telling us that they are increasingly considering cloud computing models (versus just deploying physical and virtual environments). <click> If you’re referring to Infrastructure as a Service (private cloud), you're thinking about your datacenter as a set of pooled resources (including compute, network and storage), not in terms of individual hosts or VMs.If you’re referring to public cloud, you're talking about building applications that will then be delivered as a service. The platform provides all the required building blocks for your app. Think Windows Azure. Between private and public cloud, we believe that the concept of delivering IT as a Service will transform how customers consume IT and will deliver a completely new cost structure at a much higher level of business responsiveness.We believe hybrid environments will become the norm over the next few years. A common toolset with integrated physical, virtual, Private, and Public cloud management will help you optimize your return on investment.

No specific needs for extensive customization or deep integration. Data, network, application and security offered by PPM SaaS provider are sufficient.
