8.12.2009: Why your next business will be in the cloud

  1. 1. Why your next business will be in the cloud
  2. 2. Qu’est ce que Cloud? “Cloud computing is ... details are abstracted from the users who no longer need knowledge of ... the technology infrastructure that supports them.” Wikipedia a metaphor for the Internet an abstraction of the underlying infrastructure applications online accessed from a web browser software and data are stored on the servers.
  3. 3. Let’s sit and think for a second.
  4. 4. The web has become: • a commodity • user centric • social • interactive • cross platform It’s no longer just looking at pages... ...from a desktop
  5. 5. Where are we now? • Permanent connections (3G, Wifi, Home) • Several Internet capable devices • Use several web-centric apps daily (Youtube, Spotify, Wikipedia, Skype...)
  7. 7. I can: • Capture content anywhere • Spread it to anyone any time • I can access any info about anything • Need scales depending on the device
  8. 8. Ok, now what? How do we create something great tomorrow?
  9. 9. The old way: • Each service has its own infrastructure • Use it from pc OR mobile • One type of content! • Build everything yourself
  10. 10. The problem: You just want to build your service, not: Logins Visibility Servers Scaling Need specific extra people Tie the infra to your core dev
  12. 12. Creating something new: Create mashups! Use large building blocks: • Widgets (players, viewers...) • Libraries (jQuery, Scripty...) • Open services (APIs) • Open source Leverage openness Flexible methodology
  13. 13. For example: Logins: Open ID, OAuth, Facebook Connect Visibility: Google, Facebook, Twitter? Storage: Amazon S3, MySites Devices: any! (use API, encourage 3rd party) Focus on what you’re really awesome at. Create the one thing you can do better.
  14. 14. Example: MySites
  15. 15. Identified a new need: open, scalable storage. Logins: Facebook Connect Visibility: Facebook, Twitter Storage: MySites Devices: any! (use API, encourage 3rd party) Opening: deliver our storage to partners (Dazzboard, Xiha) Focus on creating a scalable cloud storage offering. Removed all the extra.
