  • Optional slide – may simply talk to IT as a Service on next slide
  • PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) Platform as a service (PaaS) represents the next generation cloud computing application development environment, where end-users (e.g. third party developers, IT organizations, ISVs) buy and consume shared infrastructure and toolkit components that allow them to create their own computing solutions. These applications are then hosted by the PaaS or hosted infrastructure provider and can be sold in a searchable, exchange-like hub. When vendors offer a platform-as-a-service, they are essentially offering an integrated "sandbox" to build, test, and deploy custom applications. PaaS is offered to the end user in a SaaS format (Web access, consumption-based payment).  PaaS platforms, like Force.com, increasingly offer a number of capabilities, from a technology environment and expanding feature set that can include the ability to create a database on demand, support data models and objects to manage data, offer a workflow engine to manage collaboration of data between users, offer a user interface model to handle forms and other interactions and a Web services API for programmatic access and integration. Independent developers may integrate a PaaS platform with existing third-party, custom and legacy applications and write their own application services. ISVs may leverage these Web APIs to move customer-related data from custom-developed applications to a PaaS platform to demonstrate the functionality of a new service or product. Ultimately, these platforms will allow for much easier migration of enterprise applications via virtual containers that encapsulate the whole application and all associated dependencies.  PaaS platforms typically provide a run-time cloud application platform to allow businesses to rapidly create service-oriented applications with minimal investment. In addition to enabling linear application scalability in a cloud environment, some platforms are being designed to assist developers with tools to control code at a metadata layer to enable self-healing in case of infrastructure failure or to support improve utilization levels through software load balancing. At a high level, these cloud computing application platforms increasingly lie at the convergence of grid computing, virtualization and SOA. Together these combined technologies can offer the scalability benefits of grid computing, the architectural benefits of SOA and the operational benefits of virtualization. Software-as-a-Service SaaS is a service delivery model made up of a cloud computing environment in which unrelated customers share a common application and infrastructure that is managed by an ISV or a third-party service provider, and code, or intellectual property (IP) of the service is typically owned by the SaaS ISV residing in the cloud. Software as a service (SaaS) is characterized by the software, services, and support offerings that are specifically built and designed for one-to-many delivery over the Internet using a Web services architecture. An underlying shared infrastructure is typically rolled into the SaaS offering and is not sold separately. Usage-based pricing models managed by the end-provider characterize this service. The focus of this model is centered on the delivery of the SaaS application (e.g., SaaS solutions such as salesforce.com or MS Dynamic CRM Online) and not the underlying shared infrastructure. Note that SaaS includes not only business applications, but also the business operations tools in SaaS platforms (providing subscriber management, billing operations, product catalogue and pricing, order, management, etc.), and the system and service management software required to provision and market SaaS offerings.  Infrastructure-as-a-Service Infrastructure-as-a-service offerings provide access to virtualized computing resources in an on demand manner. Typical of this approach is Amazon's EC2, through which a user can request Linux virtual machine instances that are created on demand and billed based on actual usage. The user of the cloud infrastructure has visibility into how many virtual machines they have and what their individual IP addresses are. However, in this cloud environment, users do not know where the machines are geographically located or what kind of hardware is being utilized.  Companies like Savvis, Rackspace or Terremark are examples of hosted infrastructure providers who compete with Amazon's elastic compute cloud (EC2) in offering Web application hosting with on demand compute cycles, disk space and bandwidth, among other services. Infrastructure-as-a-service may involve full virtualization (e.g. GoGrid), grid computing (e.g. Sun Grid), management of infrastructure (RightScale), or computing power (e.g. Amazon EC2).  Cloud storage-as-a-service involves the delivery of data storage as a service, including database-like services, often billed on a utility computing basis, e.g. per gigabyte per month. Cloud storage can be delivered as a service to cloud computing, or can be delivered to end points directly.
  • PUT YOUR LOCAL PARTNERS ON THE BOTTOMWe have a strong partner eco system around deployment and developing customer solutions on our online and azure platforms! We list our top WW SI partners at the top of this slide and we are very excited to have avanade here today to go over their offerings and experiences around BPOS and Azure. We list on the bottom of this slide some of our local Atlanta area solution partners. We have 1000s of other partners in our ecosystem to work with as well to help you effectively migrate key workloads to the cloud and integrating with your on premises assets.

  • Key Talking PointsStart with relevant MCTS exam and progress towards Masters level certificationMasters Program enables senior-level IT professionals to validate their technical expertise on Microsoft server productsCertification authoritatively differentiates professionals to prospective employers and customers ScriptI’ve said several times that Microsoft certification adds value across all stages of an individual’s career path so let’s look at how certification helps you chart you career. If you are looking to start a career into the Help Desk industry, start with a Technical Series training and certification as validation of knowledge as an IT support professional. This certification provides the skills needed to fulfill job roles and responsibilities in the Help Desk Industry and teaches a balanced combination of Soft Skills and Technical Desktop Skills. As next steps in validating your advancing technical skills, you can show your depth of knowledge in one specific technology by earning a Professional Series credential. Many people who have earned a Professional series like to show the breath of their knowledge by obtaining other Technical Series certification.Others prefer to show advancement by moving the Master’s Program. The Microsoft Certified Master series offers advanced technical training and certifications on Microsoft technologies that go beyond any product training offered outside of Microsoft today. IT professionals who successfully complete the training program and certification testing validate their skills as product experts who successfully design and implement solutions that meet the most complex business requirements.
