  • 6. Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail! “Companies that took a disciplined approach to adopting cloud computing reduced costs by anadopting cloud computing reduced costs by an average of 18% and data center power consumption by 16%. Companies that adopted cloud computing haphazardly increased IT costs by 2-3%.” (Sept. 2009) Page 6
  • 7. MYTH All Clouds are the Same There are MANY types of clouds that fit different needsSamedifferent needs Page 7
  • 8. There are MANY types of clouds that fit different needs Public Cloud Private Cloud Cloud Computing Options Use Cases: Dev/Test, Analytics, eCommerce Use Cases: Dev/Test, Analytics, eCommercedifferent needs Hybrid Cloud • Rented services • Multi-tenancy • Self-service • Automation • Virtualization • Traditional data center Optimized workloads Optimized workloads eCommerce … eCommerce … Page 8
  • 9. MYTH Cloud Computing is About the Technology Cloud Computing is about the Business Technology Stop Thinking About Technology AGILITY Page 9
  • 10. Agility enables new Opportunities How can 10 days to 5 minutes change how you innovate? What happens when you canWhat happens when you can get 10 servers to test a new idea and your total costs is $500? If you don’t have to wait, will you get more done? Page 10

  • 18. When looking at an Enterprise cloud implementation, take the time up front to develop a comprehensive plan. When considering a move to the cloud, don’t focus exclusively on cost; agility is equally important. Don’t forget the people factor – communicate early and My Recommendations to You 1 2 3 Don’t forget the people factor – communicate early and often to reduce risk and ensure success. Go beyond the hype and focus on small, incremental wins to build experience and confidence. Recognize that you know more about cloud than you think – be confident that cloud is an evolution you can handle. 3 4 5 Page 18
