    • Making Money from Cloud Computing Questions & Opinions from the Enterprise Rhys Jones Architect, RBS Global Banking & Markets
    • We have questions for Cloud businesses
      • 1. What is Cloud Computing?
      • 2. What are the compelling business cases?
      • 3. How will you address our concerns?
      • 4. What does the “complete” solution look like?
    • What is Cloud Computing? ” “ Gartner defines cloud computing as "a style of computing where massively scalable IT-enabled capabilities are delivered 'as a service' to external customers using Internet technologies." Cloud Computing: Defining and Describing an Emerging Phenomenon Gartner (June, 20008)
    • What is Cloud Computing? ” “ A form of standardized IT-based capability — such as Internet-based services, software, or IT infrastructure — offered by a service provider that is accessible via Internet protocols from any computer, is always available and scales automatically to adjust to demand, is either pay-per-use or advertising-based, has Web- or programmatic-based control interfaces, and enables full customer self-service. Forrester Future View: The New Tech Ecosystems of Cloud, Cloud Services, And Cloud Computing Understanding, Segmenting, And Competing In The Next Computing Evolution (August, 20008)
    • What is Cloud Computing? http://www.wordle.net/ Source: Gartner and Forrester definitions + Top 8 search results from Google “what is cloud computing”
    • What is Cloud Computing?
      • Cloud Computing is a business and operating model for outsourced delivery of IT services…
      • … and it is enabled by technology not differentiated by it
      What is Cloud Computing?
    • What are the compelling business cases?
      • Lower operating costs
      • Lower TCO
      • Cost amortization
      • Avoidance of significant capital costs
      • Opex vs Capex
      Cost Capability Time Capacity Must demonstrate a tangible business case in excess of what an in-house operating model can deliver
      • Shorter Time to Market
      • Elimination of activities
      • Configuration : Coding ratio
      • Temporary solutions
      • Skills we lack
      • Improved operating model
      • Greater efficiency and effectiveness
      • Focus
      • Headcount
      • Time
      • Increased utilisation of resources
      • The business cases for adopting Cloud Computing are not easily derived from first principles …
      What are the compelling business cases?
      • ...so we need tailored proposals that allow us to make like for like comparisons
      What are the compelling business cases?
    • How will you address our concerns?
      • Security
      • Global coverage
      • Interoperability
      • Vendor long term viability
      • SLAs
      • Organisational and cultural change is required
      • Control and operational processes need to be redesigned
      • Who do you fire when it goes wrong?
      • Consumerisation of IT
      Functional concerns are treated too generally. Organisational challenges are significant and overlooked. Functional Concern: Organisational Challenge:
      • The functional concerns about Cloud Computing are legitimate but not universally applicable …
      How will you address our concerns?
      • … the organisational challenges are greater but lessons learnt from IT outsourcing projects are transferrable
      How will you address our concerns?
      • A new arms race is underway to prevent “un-controlled” take up of Cloud Computing
      How will you address our concerns?
    • What does the “complete” solution look like?
      • Where will I derive value from the new business model?
      • What are all the required pieces of the puzzle?
        • Provisioning, monitoring, connectivity, security…
      • How should I redesign my control and operational processes?
        • Which roles change, how do we apply controls?
        • Where does the new model necessarily differ from what I do today?
      Today, moving to the cloud means a multi-vendor solution, and an organisational redesign .
      • Hybrid, multi-vendor models are likely to be the norm for enterprise usage of Cloud Computing…
      What does the “complete” solution look like?
      • … so proposals should show where you fit in and who you can partner with
      What does the “complete” solution look like?
