CLOUD COMPUTING IN THE BUSINESS CORE, COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF MAIN PLAYERS

  1. 1. Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca Mind-Mercatis “CLOUD COMPUTING IN THE BUSINESS CORE, COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF MAIN PLAYERS” student: SKENDER KOLLCAKU coordinator: MASSIMO MANZARI tutor: STEFANO AVOGADRO
  2. 2. Business Core (ERP) Why ERP Solution? “ERP PROVIDES THE USER UNIFIED, CONSISTENT, UNIFORM ENVIROMENT”     A dozen integrated modules (CRM, Project Management, Human Resources, Sales, Scheduling, Decision-Making…) that address the breadth of the organization’s needs. Scale to grow with the organization (scalability). Toolset that allows user customization (one of the main actual requests from clients and IT business). ERP relies on a sophisticated, relational database with open access (webbased, open to everyone). Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca Mind-Mercatis [201 2
  3. 3. Evolution CRM - SCRM CRM SOCIAL CRM assigned departments WHO everyone company defined process WHAT customer defined process business hours (9-17) WHEN customer sets the hours defined channels WHERE customer-driven dynamic channels transaction WHY interaction inside out HOW outside in Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca Mind-Mercatis [201 3
  4. 4. Cloud computing: a definiton “Cloud Computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices on demand, like the electricity grid.” “It’s more a business model than a changing technology, although it has a few important parameters such as: delivery over the web, scalability, elasticity and multi tenancy.” from Wikipedia Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca Mind-Mercatis [201 4
  5. 5. The need for Cloud Which drives the need for Cloud computing?  The increasing cost of acquisition, implementation and deployment of IT (buying hardware/software, maintenance of systems, security and logistics)  The difficulty of attracting and training IT staff  Cost reductions  Provides a platform for a business to achieve its ambitions of having an ‘inclusive’ IT system that covers the entire supply chain and its customers, enabling and generating business growth more effectively. Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca Mind-Mercatis [201 5
  6. 6. Cloud systems Main aspects of Cloud systems:        TYPES (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) MODES (Private, Public, Hybrid) FEATURES (Elasticity, Reliability, Virtualization) LOALITY (Local, Remote, Distribuited) BENEFITS (Cost reductions, Ease of use) STAKEHOLDERS (Providers, Resellers, Users) COMPARES TO (Service-oriented architecture, Grid, Internet of services) Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca Mind-Mercatis [201 6
  7. 7. Main players and cloud offers  Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)  Microsoft Azure  Google Infrastructure Cloud Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca Mind-Mercatis [201 7
  8. 8. Comparative Analysis Take care of these aspects:  Common things (license type, the intended user group, the security offered, payment systems, formal agreements, common APIs…)  Differences (storage space, computing power, platforms for own software development, online software applications…)  Possible standards  Portability and operability (it should not be locked-in) Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca Mind-Mercatis [201 8
  9. 9. Taxonomy as a tree-based structure  Method to identify and explain cloud players differences and characteristics.  The characteristics are organized in specific tables and then proposed as a tree-based structure.  It allows quick classifications of the different cloud computing services and makes it easier to compare them.  The classification can also help researchers identify areas that could be standardized Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca Mind-Mercatis [201 9
  10. 10. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) LEVEL FOUND CHARACTERISTICS Service IaaS License Proprietary base framework User group Corporate use Payment Pay-per-use Agreements/Security SLA/PKI Supported OS Non-preconfig with Linux, Windows Server, OpenSolaris Standards Public API Virtualization Xen Dev. tools Command-line, Developer API, Oracle, MySQL Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca Mind-Mercatis [201 10

  14. 14. Cloud challenges  Cloud services vary a lot  Lack of universal definitions and standards  Security/Privacy issues  Data may ONLY be data if it is necessary to know the physical location of the data (EU’s data law) Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca Mind-Mercatis [201 14
  15. 15. “The computer industry is the only industry that is more fashion-driven than women’s fashion” an Oracle analyst Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca Mind-Mercatis [201 15
