    AAF - Enterprise Architecture and Cloud Computing AAF - Enterprise Architecture and Cloud Computing Presentation Transcript

    • <Insert Picture Here> Impact of the rise of the Cloud on Enterprise Architecture Tim Rubin Enterprise Architect
    • Impact of the Cloud on EA Agenda • What is Cloud Computing? • Why should Enterprise Architecture care? Open Space Workshop
    • Cloud Computing * Often characterized by: • Virtualized computing resources • Multi-tenancy • Seemingly limitless capacity/scalability • Self-service • Dynamic provisioning • Pay-for-use pricing * Source: Wikipedia.org
    • Qualities of an Enterprise Cloud • On-Demand, Services-Oriented Computing • Drastically reduced lead times • Demand trends are predicted by the provider • Variable cost consumption • Pay-per-use or over time; decouple fixed overhead from demand • Self-service • Resources directly/indirectly reserved with a GUI or API • Elastic Scalability • Grow or shrink resources as required • Mandatory Network • The network is essential to consume the service • Governance and Compliance • Tracking and matching of cloud providers to policies
    • When Cloud Computing may be a fit • When the processes, applications, and data are largely independent. • When the points of integration are well defined. • When a lower level of security will work just fine. • When the core internal enterprise architecture is healthy. • When the Web is the desired platform. • When cost is an issue … when isn’t it though! • When the applications are new.
    • What do we mean by... architecture? Architecture • The fundamental organisation of a system, embodied in its components, their relationships to each other, and the environment, and the principles governing its design and evolution. (ISO 42010 / IEEE 1471-2000 definition) Enterprise Architecture • Enterprise Architecture is the organising logic for businesses and their IT infrastructure reflecting the integration and standardisation requirements of the firm’s operating model. Peter Weill, MIT
    • Architecture as Strategy Strategy Idea 1 Idea 2 Idea 3 Defines Limits Constrains Set Policy Learning Enterprise Operating Model Architecture Provides Capabilities Requires Execution Systems Processes Infrastructure Adapted from: Enterprise Architecture as Strategy: Creating a Foundation for Business Execution, J. Ross, P. Weill, and D. Robertson, Harvard Business School Press, 2006.
    • Is the Business Case for Cloud open and shut? “Cloud computing, far from saving IT organizations money, actually costs more than providing the same services in-house.” http://www.cio.com/article/480595/The_Case_Against_Cloud_Computing_Part_Four
    • Is the Business Case for Cloud open and shut? Data Center Economics Cloud Economics (Amazon EC2) Windows Large instance •15 GB memory 8 EC2 Compute Units (4 virtual cores with 2 EC2 Compute Units each) Outsource Cost: • 1,690 GB instance storage, 64-bit platform ±$10,000/annum (4 by 420 GB plus 10 GB root partition) • Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Authentication Services, and SQL Server Costs $3.20/hr or $2,304/month or $27,000/annum Windows small instance • 1.7 GB of memory, 1 EC2 Compute Unit (1 virtual core with 1 EC2 Compute Unit) • 160 GB of instance storage, 32-bit platform Costs $.125/hr, $90/month for Windows. http://www.cio.com/article/480595/The_Case_Against_Cloud_Computing_Part_Four
    • Is Cloud Computing not just “old” technology re-branded?
    • Is Cloud Computing not just “old” technology re-branded?
    • Does IT Matter?
    • 15 Ways to Tell Its Not Cloud Computing • If you peel back the label and its says “Grid” or “OGSA” underneath… it is not a cloud. • If you need to send a 40 page requirements document to the vendor … it is not cloud. • If you can’t buy it on your personal credit card… it is not a cloud • If they are trying to sell you hardware… it is not a cloud. • If there is no API… it is not a cloud. • If you need to re-architect your systems for it… It is not a cloud. • If it takes more than ten minutes to provision… it is not a cloud. • If you can’t de-provision in less than ten minutes… it is not a cloud. • If you know where the machines are… it is not a cloud. • If there is a consultant in the room… it is not a cloud. • If you need to specify the number of machines you want upfront… it is not a cloud. • If it only runs one operating system… it is not a cloud. • If you can’t connect to it from your own machine… it is not a cloud. • If you need to install software to use it… it is not a cloud. • If you own all the hardware… it is not a cloud. • If it takes 20 slides to explain…. It is not a cloud Courtesy James Governor’s Monkchips Blog: http://www.redmonk.com/jgovernor/

    • Open Space Workshop The Laws of Open Space • Respect for others • Whoever comes is the right people • Whatever happens is the only thing that could have • Whenever it starts is the right time • When it's over it's over • The law of two feet
    • Impact of the Cloud on EA Agenda • What is Cloud Computing? • Why should Enterprise Architecture care? Open Space Workshop: • Is the business case for Cloud Computing open & shut? • Is Cloud Computing not merely an opportunity for vendors to rebrand “old” technologies? • 2005 Revisited!! • Does IT Matter? And, if it does, for how long?
