  2. 2. 2 Presenters Ed Hoppitt - VMware Business Solution Architect Email: ehoppitt@vmware.com Blog: www.gatheringclouds.co.uk Twitter - @edhoppitt Phil Richards – BT Global Services Customer CTO Email: phil.2.richards@bt.com Twitter - @philmrichards
  3. 3. 3 Agenda  Cloud Ops Introduction  Overview of the Challenges of Cloud Operations  Customer Example – BT Global Services  BT’s end-customer experience as an IT outsourcer  VMware Customer Examples of today and tomorrow  Business value of making the changes  Moving your business forward
  4. 4. 4 This Is Not a Technology Discussion
  5. 5. 5 Operations Transformation in the Cloud Era IT Ops in cloud era – is different than IT Operations in Client/Server era
  6. 6. 6 Organizations Now Expect IT to Change at Pace of Business… New Economics of IT = GROWTH… … IT Must Become Value Creators  New opportunities, new market, new business models  Increase/Retain customers, market share, opening new markets Enabling CEOs  Must maintain cost pressure and help drive additional revenueCIOs  Drive revenue growth and differentiation  Increase competitiveness Uniqueness  Lower the cost of failure, reduce the price of successAgile Infrastructure

  10. 10. 10 Our Customers’ Challenge with the status quo  Fear • Innovate today whilst keeping yesterday’s lights on • Operating model not keeping pace with customer demands • Unable to keep pace with competitors  Uncertainty • How do we transform • Where do we start – ‘we wouldn’t want to start from here’ • How do we justify/quantify the business value of options  Doubt • How does this all fit in to our world • Is this just all hype – is there really a risk of doing nothing (safe !) • Who should we turn to for leadership and guidance
  11. 11. 11 Deploying SDDC Internally – The MI Programme  Launch of services like BT Sport ($2 billion investment in sports media coverage)  Driving a new way of thinking, and a new level of agility  Current solutions were process-bound  Silos risked being barriers to speed  Too focussed around infrastructure  vCloud Suite deployed onto vBlock  Transformation of operational processes  Organisation transformation where design and operations functions merge (TSO)
  12. 12. 12 The Challenges with the Past  Development cycle times were too long and complex  Traditional markets placed less stress on IT vs today  Traditional IT models aren’t designed with agile in mind  Too silo focused, built around the infrastructure not tenants  Lack of clear end to end ownership  Desire to standardise everything
  13. 13. 13 BT’s Customers are Feeling this Challenge Platform managing Air Cargo Logistics through UK airports  What: • Ageing infrastructure, applications and support model • End of life risk for service support and infrastructure • Disproportionate FTE requirement vs market value of service • Silo environment not leveraging economies of scale • Need to provide an operational model that meets the customers needs  How: • VMware Advisory Services lead engagement including PSO to drive both Cloud Ops and Platform Architecture change
  14. 14. 14 BT’s Customers are Feeling this Challenge Public Sector Organisation  What: • Years of managing and collecting infrastructure (keeping lights on) • A true museum of IT decisions past • Data centre estate has grown organically • Flow of information and data is restricted and slow • Wants to move to private and public cloud…..but how? • Security standards high internally – authentication of data  How • Creating a strategy around the Software-Defined Datacentre. Building an ROI model around that transformation that allows the value of technical and operations management transformation to be quantified and then realised.
  15. 15. 15 VMware Advisory Services Customer Example  Great investment in VMware  One IT Organisation – Done ?  Reality still silos for teams  Tactical tooling, no dashboard  Automation means scripts  All staff ITIL focused  Self Serve = Anarchy ?  Want benefits of Cloud  Continued single platform model  Continued integration work  Cross functional teams  CIO dashboard capability  vCloud Suite vCAC Automation  Focus on Cloud Ops Functions  Self Serve = Control  Achieving the benefits of cloud EMEA Insurance Company TODAY EMEA Insurance Company TOMORROW

  17. 17. 17 Why Tackle This – the Numbers Speak for Themselves ! 1.2 1.5 2.2 3.1 1.00 1.50 2.00 2.50 3.00 3.50 4.00 5 or Less 6 to 10 11 to 15 16 or more OverallROI(Avg1.62) Number transformation Areas (Avg 6.2) Source - VMware 2013 CloudOps Transformation Benchmark
  18. 18. 18 History Is Littered with Those Who Ignored a Trend…. Thanks - Simon Wardley
  19. 19. 19 Key Takeaways  There is a huge space here for focus • Multiple use cases, multiple transformation points  Use case matters • Required transformation highly variable, dependent on context  IT Ops Transformation • Necessary – cloud technology/tool value unlocked by Ops Transformation • Valuable – more transformation highly correlated with greater ROI • Heuristic - views change after transformation. We can learn from success.  Transformation drives value in multiple areas – agility, cost, quality  But “keeping the lights on is still job #1 in cloud era  No single prescription – like with server consolidation via virtualization
