  • Jonathan – hand-off to RobertGood morning, I’m Robert Christiansen, GM of HPC.I’ll talk about my business in a minute. It’s pretty exciting and Latisys is one of the key partners in making it possible.We chose Latisys because we did our homework, researched our options and applied the 80/20 rule and that’s what I want to talk to you about first.
  • As you can see, there are an infinite number of decisions that you can make regarding going on the cloud. Which is why it’s useful to use the 80/20 rule when you’re making decisions. It’s true for all of us that 80% of our work delivers only 20% of our value and 20% of our work delivers 80% of our value.But I want to take it a step further…
  • The 80% of your job that has the least value is the same as the 80% that’s least valuable for everyone in your position, at every company.The 20% of your job that is 80% of the value is different for everyone. It’s the part of your company that’s unlike any other. It’s the part that requires you to think through tough problems and come up with big solutions.
  • Everybody on this call has to deal with the same stuff, day in and day out. Email. Load Balancing. Maintenance. Important stuff, sure, but the same over and over.And then there’s the stuff that really matters. Managing users, apps, budgets, capacity. You can never spend enough time on it and it’s infinitely important.
  • So apply the 80/20 rule to the services Jonathan described when you’re deciding what to build and what to buy on the Cloud.If you have highly-specialized needs, like a credit card company that has to meet PCI compliance or a government contractor, then you’re going to be doing a lot of building and you’re going to need vendors who deliver 80% of the value you need.But if you’re a more typical company, like a publishing company or an insurance company, then a lot of your core infrastructure can be provided by some combination of these cloud providers.The key is to be diligent and apply the 80/20 rule on every service and every provider.
  • And just to recap those services, even the ones that are cloud based, still have a lot of effort. You need to do your homework. This is all stuff you know. But if you’re going to use multiple providers and multiple services, you’re going to have to make executive decisions on what configurations are going to deliver the most value and the least effort.Even if you do all your homework here, you still have to manage it…

    18. 18. “Build It vs. Buy It” meets The Cloud. SaaS • Companies with highly-specialized needs must build their own.5/29/2012 Fortunately, there are many good providers. • For companies without highly-specialized needs, there are also providers who can recreate most or all services in one comprehensive package. • Applying the 80/20 rule is crucial to intelligently choosing between Confidential Services and Providers. 18

    21. 21. Premium Cloud Services • Microsoft, Citrix, and other enterprise players are investing heavily in premium cloud services (i.e., Office365, Exchange, etc.) • Premium Cloud handles the 80% services that provide 20% of IT value, thus offloading the low value activities from IT5/29/2012 professionals • This is very good news for IT professionals who add value through creativity, insight and expertise because… • All low-value services can be delivered via the Cloud from a Confidential single interface. 21

    24. 24. Where Do We Go from Here? Cloud must be part of your IT strategy…. …but cloud is an evolution…not a revolution. Update for final “conclusion” / call toChoose your delivery platform deliberately action that incorporates both• Security & compliance requirements drive public vs. private solutions…• Cloud is almost always workload and application-specific• Don’t ignore cloud politics—get out in front• Performance matters!! QoS just as critical as in a “classic” deployment• Do you have the expertise to right-size, deploy and migrate? (and if not, does your service provider?)• Integration with the rest of your IT infrastructure – do you really want to manage silos of components…or multiple vendors? 24 Confidential 5/29/2012
