  • 3. Cloud Computing
    A style of computing where massively scalable IT enabled capabilities are delivered as a service to external customers using Internet technologies. – Gartner
    Brought about by the convergence of key technologies, computing trends, and architecture patterns
    Cheap hardware
    Virtualization
    High bandwidth/low latency communication
    RESTful Web Services
    Characterized by a different payment/revenue/chargeback model
    Subscription-based
    Transaction-based
    Ad revenue-based
    Achieves lower operating costs, flexibility, CapEx to OpEx
  • 4. Cloud Deployment of Modernized Applications
  • 5. A Modernization Journey with Micro Focus
    Transformation Improvement
    Move existing Enterprise Applications from the current Operating Platform to a new modern, cost effective and flexible platform to deliver immediate operating cost savings of up to 85%
    Step 1
    Cost

    Agile
    Continuous Improvement
    Use the cost savings to Modernise the Enterprise Application on the new modern platform on a continuous basis tomeet requirements
    Step 2
    Transformational Improvement

    Continuous Improvement
  • 6. Application Qualities in the Cloud
    • Cloud apps support variable workload patterns
    • 7. Allow easy provisioning for new end-user groups
    • 8. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
    • 9. Allow mash-up (Web 2.0)
    • 10. Re-use existing business logic
    • 11. Support existing data formats

    Over provisioned capacity is wasted
    Time to market can be cumbersome
    Successful services needs to grow/scale
    Keeping up w/ growth is big IT challenge
    Complex lead time for deployment
