  • Francie / FLORIAN
  • Chosing right modernization
  • Consume without installing anything
    Someone else is hosting data and application power
    Centralized data center – ways to make data consumable in standardized way
    Managed – someone else manages it for youPublic vs privateHybrid – combination of the above
    Go back to „why“ and „how“
  • Capex – buying dedicated infrastructure and depricating it over time
    Opex – use shared cloud infrastructure and pay as you use it
    Transforming IT
    How – panagenda isn‘t a stake holder but since we touch on clients, apps, servers, analysis
    Let‘s talk more about the „how“
  • Florian
  • According to Gartner, Forrester etc, the aera of long projects is over.
    IT headcount is nearly the same as 20 years ago while the nature of IT has changed and is constantly changing.
    Even the volume of data to be managed doubles each year, let alone how to render that data, on ipads, browser and ever changing, mobile devices
    Combine that with moving target (next slide)
  • Florian
  • Florian
  • Adding mobile and web into this mix…
    Standardized browsers and plugins
    Modernization and webification become part of this effort
    Constant stream of new apps like chat – ICQ, skype, mobile apps
  • External factors and ripple effects – for example going to BYOD now you have a set of devices to maintain and secure.
    Not just an IT but management and policies issue
    How do IT processes/help desk procedures change if we go to Google
  • Florian
  • Are you doing this to reduct cost? Change the way IT is paid for?
    Basically two things that matter, usage analysis and design analysis
  • According to IBM, these are the steps involved to going to the cloud
    Basically usage analysis and design analysis

  • Understanding what your users do, how much bandwidth and server power that takes, what apps they frequent is VITAL to a successful cloud migration
  • How do you get this data?
    Good news is you do already have this data across serveral repositories. Bad news.... Pain to get
    First going to show you a native way..
  • Franz
  • DB usage
    Doc reads and writes
    Session duration
    Amount of data consumed
    Usage pattern

  • Show user count
    Demand characteristics

Transcript

  • 1. Cloud Readiness 101: Analyzing and Visualizing Your IT Infrastructure Francie Tanner - panagenda 1
  • 2. Agenda • Getting started • Introduction • What can you expect from this session? • What is The Cloud and why are companies “moving there”? • Making your infrastructure transformation a success • Key factors identified and explained • User activity analysis - who uses what and how? • Application design analysis - identifying scope and feasibility constraints • Summary: Infrastructure as a whole 2
  • 3. Introduction • Francie Tanner, Director, Americas • Over 17 years experience in IBM Lotus consulting • Managing, architecting, and supporting 10 – 100'000 user environments • Experienced Lotus instructor and speaker • CH -> US -> AI -> US -> ? 3 | © 2012 IBM Corporation
  • 4. What can you expect from this session? • Managing Infrastructure changes as a whole • Understanding how moving to the cloud is best approached in an IBM ICS environment • Ways to identify and measure critical success factors involved, in order to be able to calculate expected effort • Samples of environment and application analysis 4
  • 5. What is cloud = someone else’s computer 5 XPages IBM Connections HTML5 IBM Notes
  • 6. • What exactly is the cloud and why are companies moving there? • Why? • Costs – CAPEX vs OPEX • Flexibility, Integration, Scalability • Easier Upgrades • Speed (?) • How? • That is what this session is all about • There is no “Move to cloud”–button … • “Adapting a Cloud strategy” is a key driving factor for many 6 Getting started
  • 7. Getting started Evolution of IT projects: From static projects … 7
  • 8. Getting started Evolution of IT: Classic 18 – 24 month upgrade project 8 Project Stable StableChange
  • 9. Getting started Evolution of IT projects: … to ongoing agile transformation! 9
  • 10. Getting started Agility is the key to success 10 Continuous Change
  • 11. One goal? More like many moving targets! XPages IBM Connections HTML5 IBM Notes
  • 12. 12 Continuous Change Getting started Agility is the key to sucess
  • 13. Agenda Making Your Move a Success Key factors identified and explained 13
  • 14. 14 Key factors identified and explained • Clarifying why you do it and for whom • Understand the motivators of your stakeholders Management / Governance, Technical, Business • Why you do it has a big influence on setting your goal and how you measure success • User Activity Analysis • Demand Characteristics • Usage - Reads, Writes, Users • Load - Transactions, CPU, Memory, … • Availability / Reliability / Performance • Geographies / Topologies • Bandwidth - demand vs. availability
  • 15. 15 • Application Design Analysis • Cross Linkage of Mail, Apps and Business Processes • Dependencies • Features & Functions e.g. Telephony integration, Archiving, … • Interfaces -Fax, Files, Printers, data in a text file on some server … • Tying those findings to organizational structures • Has its foundation in user activity • Evaluate infrastructure utilization by cost center rather than technical by user or DB • Identify areas with special significance • e.g. databases which are mainly used by VIPs • activity benchmarks across departments Key factors identified and explained
  • 16. 16 Increasing Consulting Demand Decreasing Risk for Customer & IBM Making Your Move a Success
  • 17. User Activity Analysis Who uses what and how 17
  • 18. User Activity Analysis What can user activity tell you? • Read vs. Write traffic • Mail vs. Apps • Transactions - Server load • High impact users & apps • Excessive usage 18
  • 19. What happens when moving to the cloud ... 19
  • 20. What happens when moving to the cloud ... 20 On premise ? ? ? ?
  • 21. What happens when moving... 21 Off premise ? ? ? ? ?
  • 22. What happens when moving... 22 Off premise ? ? ? ? ?
  • 23. Traffic jam 23
  • 24. 24 User Activity Analysis • Users • How many, where are they – session concurrency • When do they use resources – data center location • What kind of connectivity do they have • How much do they read vs write • Resources – Servers, Clients, Apps • Rich clients, iNotes, plugins, browser • How many Apps, where are they • Server power consumed and required • Bandwidth to/from servers
  • 25. 25 User Activity Analysis How to get the data without 3rd party tools • DB Activity: LOG.NSF – documents with form type “Activity” • View selection formula: SELECT FORM = "Activity" • Add columns that are interesting in your scenario
  • 26. 26 • DB Activity: LOG.NSF – database activity details • Note there is a 1400 activity entry maximum per database (FIFO) • There is also a 64K size limit for the user activity • More details in IBM Technote #1086245 User Activity Analysis How to get the data without 3rd party tools
  • 27. 27 • DB Activity: CATALOG.NSF – related information, different focus – Full text index details – Replication information – ACL overview Note: Domino does not distinguish between user, server or maintenance tasks activity at this level User Activity Analysis How to get the data without 3rd party tools
  • 28. 28 • User Activity: LOG.NSF basic information is easy to extract • File → Export → Comma Separated Value • Combine results of multiple servers in spreadsheet calculation software User Activity Analysis How to get the data without 3rd party tools
  • 29. 29 User Activity Analysis DEMO: Activity analysis example
  • 30. Application Design Analysis Scope and feasibility constraints 30
  • 31. 31 Application Design Analysis • Why does application design analysis matter • Dependencies on hardware (e.g. dongle, mobile phone, etc.) or software (e.g. DLL on windows machine) • Standard applications (Mail, Teamrooms) often migratable with very low effort • Design complexity and code type may make transformation extremely complex
  • 32. 32 Application Design Analysis • Geography and Topology considerations
  • 33. 33 Application Design Analysis • Possible destinations • Web application (e.g. XPages) • Mobile application • Notes browser plugin • Hybrid • ...
  • 34. Infrastructure as a Whole Understanding the big picture 34
  • 35. 35 Understanding the big Picture • Combining usage and design analysis is essential • Organizational considerations • Who owns and “will pay” for migrating an application? • Combination with HR data • Compare efficiency of infrastructure consolidation vs transformation • Hard numbers are much easier to deal with than guesstimates • IBM Domino Doublecheck is a great foundation
