  • This is the Gartner & Forrester Approved Slide
    Garter 2012 quote is public.
  • Key points:
    Cloud is called the 5th generation of computing. Note we still see examples of these previoius eras today in computing. For example; There are still 10-12,000 mainframes in the world today. No era precludes the other, we will live in world of different eras of technologies but Cloud is here and is growing rapidly.
  • Been doing this awhile…

    As we think about how Microsoft is poised to take advantage of the shift to services going forward, let’s step back a minute and just set some context about where we are and where we’ve been
    We been doing business and delivering software through the cloud for over a decade
    Most people are surprised to learn about where we’re leading…
    Our online properties (WL, MSN) see some 600 million unique users every month
    The Xbox guys pushed out some 5 petabytes of content over Xbox Live during the week of Christmas
    We process up to 9.9 billion messages a day via WL Messenger
    We have over 500 million active Windows Live IDs
    The BPOS guys have a million paying users in 36 countries and regions
    Even MS Update/Windows Update … operates at incredible scale - pushes out over a petabyte of updates every month to millions of servers and hundreds of millions of PCs
    Even back when we pushed out SP2 for Windows XP, over 250 million of those PCs were upgraded with WU – upgrading a desktop operating system is as incredibly sophisticated a cloud service as you will ever see, and we did it at massive scale (hundreds of millions)
    We’re not new at this…
    Our breadth of experience spans 30 years w/consumers, over 20 years in the enterprise, and over a decade providing services in the cloud
    When these competencies, these muscles come together – our understanding of enterprise requirements combined w/our ability to scale delivery through the cloud, for example – you get things like MS Online services.
    The sum of our capabilities ends up greater than the parts
    Other guys trying to compensate for that via acquisitions – we wish them luck
    This breadth of offering extends to our hundreds of thousands of partners as well
    For every $1 in revenue we make, they make $7 – that’s how we built the company – that continues in the cloud
    We have more than 7,000 partners reselling BPOS, more than 100 partners join this community each week
    We have nearly 10,000 hosting partners
    Our commitment to continuing this path is reflected through the investments we’re making, through the breadth of our offering across all these different businesses we’re in and the investment we’re making
    We’re evolving some of the most successful product franchises the software industry has ever seen – Windows and Office – to the cloud, and we’re not stopping there – our database business, our messaging and collab business – the list goes on and on
    Not taking this lightly
    This is how we’re going to grow the business – this is the future of Microsoft
    Not just products, either – we believe our infrastructure/datacenter investments to be unmatched in the industry (put the onus on GOOG to refute?)
    700,000+ square foot Chicago and the 300,000+ square foot Dublin, Ireland data centers
    Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Japan, and Singapore: We announced (November 2009) that we have datacenter capacity in these regional locations

    Microsoft sites, including and Windows Live Services attract more than 600 million unique users worldwide each month and in 46 markets and 21 languages
    Microsoft sites captured nearly 15% of global internet minutes (up 43% from last year.) 70% of Microsoft’s time comes from Windows Live Messenger.

    Windows Live Hotmail: More than 369 million active accounts worldwide (Source: comScore WW November 2009), making it the world’s largest web-based email service and is used in nearly every country in the world.
    Windows Live Messenger: More than 314 million active accounts worldwide (Source: comScore WW November 2009); Customers send up to 9.9 billion messages a day with Windows Live Messenger. (Source: Microsoft internal data, as of October 2009), making it the #1 most used free instant messaging service in the world.
    So, what is Software Plus Services?
    It is software on the desktop, device plus services in the cloud that are Partner or Microsoft hosted.
    It provides customers with choice and flexibility of all the different deployment options, including on premise, partner hosted, Microsoft hosted, or a combination.
    It is the best of both worlds, not just the cloud but the user is in control and there are more deployment choices for IT.
    Today we will focus on Microsoft Hosted – the “cloud” experience.

    At this time, I will turn the presentation over to Chris who will share with you information about our New Microsoft Online Subscription program.

    Chris . . .
  • Software as a Service – Instead of owning and running Applications on your computers, you rent them and get them over a network.
    The key characteristics of Software as a Service include:
    Network-based access to, and management of, commercially available software
    Activities managed from central locations rather than at each customer's site, enabling customers to access applications remotely via the Web
    Application delivery in a one-to-many model (single instance, multi-tenant architecture), including architecture, pricing, partnering, and management characteristics
    Centralized feature updating to download patches and upgrades.
    Integration into a larger network of communicating software - either as part of a mashup or as a plugin to a platform as a service.

    Infrastructure as a Service -Instead of owning and running your facility, servers, and network, you rent flexible computing capacity when you need it.
    The key characteristics of Infrastructure as a service include:
    Resources delivered as a service including servers, network equipment, memory, CPU, disk space, data center facilities,
    Dynamic scaling of infrastructure which scales up and down based on application resource needs
    Variable cost service using fixed prices per resource component
    Multiple tenants typically coexist on the same infrastructure resources
    Enterprise grade infrastructure allows mid-size companies to benefit from the aggregate compute resource pools

    Platform as a Service - Instead of owning and maintaining systems (e.g. development, testing, production, etc.) you rent them when you need them.
    The key characteristics of Platform as a service include:
    Services to develop, test, deploy, collaborate, host and maintain applications in the same integrated development environment
    Web based user interface creation tools ease the creation of user interfaces
    Multi-tenant architecture with concurrency management, scalability, failover and security.
    Integration with web services and databases allows compositions and re-use of services
    Provide insight into the inner workings of their applications, and the behavior of their users.

  • “With Partner” model
    Applications built for Azure Services
    Customer buys Azure from Microsoft
    Customer buys applications from partner
  • Key point: Windows Azure is hosted in Microsoft data centers around the world.
    Windows Azure provides compute power, storage, and automated service management, as well as easy connectivity to other applications and access control to provide secure authorization and authentication of access to cloud resources. Also hosted in the Windows Azure platform is Microsoft SQL Azure, providing relational database services and automated management of relational service.

  • Let’s now drill down on “Online” services. Online services is a set of enterprise class software delivered as subscription services hosted by Microsoft and sold through partners. Our goals is to create a service option for every one of our business software products. The initial set of services we are offering focus on the business productivity capabilities that includes Exchange Online, Office SharePoint Online, Office Live Meeting, Office Communications Online, Exchange Hosted Services and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. Exchange Hosted Services are attached services that include filtering, archiving, encryption and continuity. We plan to add many more Online services to this portfolio over time.

    The Business Productivity Online Suite, shown here, includes Exchange Online, Office SharePoint Online, Office Communications Online, and Office Live Meeting. Office Communications Online is currently available as part of the dedicated offering or as a multi-tenant offering.

  • For reasons such as data compliance, customization requirements, flexibility, etc., customer may want to deploy a hybrid approach between online and on-premise. Another key value we provide is the flexibility to choose your deployment model between on-premises and online by geography, workload or roles. In this example, the customer decides to deploy Exchange Server in their own datacenter for users in their headquarter and have their branch office users subscribe to Exchange Online. To enable a seamless experience such as a single address book, we provide a tool to synchronize entries in your on-premises directory with our Online directory. With this tool, any changes you make on your directory are synchronize with our directory such as changing adding or deleting a user, change user attributes, etc. For SharePoint, in this example, customer can choose to deploy a set of site collections on their on-premise SharePoint deployment and another set of site collections is deployed on SharePoint Online. In this case, no matter where the users are at, they can access to sites from both site collections.
    Levering the Cloud can be complicated
    Here are some significant considerations
    Microsoft can help you think through the decision and has a full offering to support what you need (traditional, virtualized, private cloud, public cloud)

  • 99.9% uptime SLA = a little over 8.5 hours of downtime per calendar year.
  • Slide Objective:
    Discuss how Microsoft UC&C with BPOS can help customer’s Maximize their IT resources by lowering the TCO.

    Talking Points
    A Unified Communications and Collaboration platform based on the Microsoft Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS) can significantly lower your IT costs. Here is a comparison of the TCO of running on premise Exchange 2003 versus on premise Exchange 2007 versus Exchange Online based on a typical 250 user organization.
    Across the board, BPOS/Exchange Online will save your organization money whether you migrate from Exchange 2003 or 2007. As an example the chart above compares the TCO of running Exchange 2003, Exchange 2007 and Exchange Online. You can see how your TCO can be lowered to $10.95 per user/per month by migrating to Exchange Online and that can be a huge saving if migrating from Exchange 2007 and even higher if migrating from Exchange 2003.
  • Slide Objective:
    Close the presentation highlighting what makes Microsoft BPOS unique when compared with competitive alternatives.

    Talking Points
    Bullet points are highlights from topics covered in detail within the presentation.
  • 1) BPO Suite offers a 38% discount off of standalone services
    2) EHS Filtering and Forefront for Exchange included in Exchange Online Standard
    3) Forefront for SharePoint included in SharePoint Standard
    4) Exchange Online & SharePoint Online have Additional Storage Add-On SKU’s in 1GB increments
    5) Basic Suite includes Outlook Web Access and SharePoint site access only
    6) Additional discount based upon volume licensing level
    7 ) Step-up license available from current CALs
  • Slide Objective:
    Discuss how Microsoft UC&C with BPOS can help customer’s Maximize their IT resources by empowering both information and deskless users with the right tools.

    Talking Points
    A Unified Communications and Collaboration platform based on the Microsoft Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS) can transform your business while lowering your IT costs by enabling your organization with next generation UC&C that are available to effectively empower both your information and task worker user base.
    The Deskless Worker Suite is made up of the Exchange Online Deskless Worker service and the SharePoint Online Deskless Worker service. These are limited functionality versions targeted at enterprise task workers (like factory or sales floor employees). Those users will be able to read and manage their mail with Outlook Web Access with a maximum mailbox size of 500 megabytes and have read-only access to your SharePoint site.

  • I know this slide breaks every powerpoint rule in the book but this is my Microsoft fast fact slide. The key point here is we aren’t new to running enterprise services and internet scale cloud services.
    We’ve been running services at global scale for over 15 years. We have tons of learning and innovation from applying these learnings to our current set of offerings.

    Here are some interesting fast facts for you around our investments, security and availability, customer and partner momentum, and operational experience.

    We process 1B windows Live ID authentications every day
    Our Cloud spam filtering solution process between 3-4 B emails every day
    And Windows Update updates around 650M PCs around the globe when a a service update is made available

    More Stats!
    $2.3B invested with >$1B being invested in data center build out now.
    >1,000 people in our engineering and operations staff.
    The local data center in Quincy, WA is visible from space!
    Microsoft is making a huge scale investment of > billion dollars in building their data centers. There are currently 13 global datacenters that use 70 mega watts of power and by the end of 2009, there will be 20 data centers, using 180 mega watts of power.  The data centers are 9-10 football fields in size, and contain enough wire to wrap around the earth several times. Microsoft is making a major investing in these data centers, which, is different from competitors using legacy data centers.
    Highly secure data centers w/audits to ensure data centers are SAS 70 & ISO27001 compliant.
    CyberTrust provides both application and physical security validation:
    4 of the 5 largest WW banks use CyberTrust and more than 95% of all information security software.
    What they found: “…not discover a single device with any high-severity vulnerabilities … I can comfortably say in three years of conducting internal scans I have never seen an internal scan without any high-severity vulnerabilities”—CyberTrust

    “We run a “data center within a data center” approach for some services, including BPOS, which includes motion sensors, 24/7 secured access, biometric controlled access systems, video camera surveillance, and onsite physical security.  The data centers restrict physical access to a very select few individuals and within the data center multiple levels of access controls restrict access to critical areas even further.”  (–Kevin Timmons, GM of Data Center Operations, MS Global Foundation Services)
    99.9%  uptime SLA exceeded with actual at 99.95%+.
  • More than 50% of the Fortune 500 now have Microsoft Online Services
    Customers in every industry: Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals, Finance, Government, Retail, Energy & Transportation
  • Large Coffee Retailer is Starbucks

    Here are some examples on why our customers have been choosing cloud based solutions.

    It revolves around the key business areas and themes we spoke about earlier:
    Saving money and Efficiency
    Driving Innovation in how organizations engage customers and suppliers and bring products to market faster and with less risk
    How we can help grow their business with greater scalability and reliability and more focus on the core business

    Customer Story Examples: Do not come off too sales here as this is backing up why customers are choosing cloud and that customers are seeing results
    City of Carlsbad:
    Reeds Jewelers:
    Kelley Blue Book:
  • Here are some more examples of customers and analysts that validate our strategy and ability to deliver results. Our platform has been delivering some strong results for the last 5 years. We are on the brink of unleashing our next wave of cloud innovation this summer. Let’s now go drill into the details on our offering. We’ll get into more details in each of the break out sessions later today.
