SharePoint in the clouds – select, mix, and deploy whats right for you


Published on

Many "clouds" support SharePoint 2013. And these many “clouds” can be combined adding unique value based on your unique requirements. This session is designed to help ITI's and ITDM's find the right cloud formula to deploy based on practical business and technical considerations. You'll understand how to differentiate between private and public clouds, IaaS and SaaS, as well as hybrid scenarios with absolute clarity of the business benefits and the IT best practices.

  • Discuss E2open background, early forays into cloud infrastructure and what we learned about building SaaS offerings. Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)E-commerceTelecom advancesSOAP and XMLService-Oriented ArchitectureWeb ServicesVirtualizationInexpensive hardware
  • Discuss early days of MMS, and re-learning many of these same issues.
  • There’s been a lot of talk about the decline in PCs, but in a presentation by Microsoft COO Kevin Turner last summer at a Seattle partner event, Kevin pointed out an important fact: that people may not be buying as many laptops, but they are picking up and using multiple devices on a daily basis. So whether you are supporting PCs and laptops, smartphones, tablets, or embedded devices, realize that your employees and team are using more devices than ever before, and that rate continues to rise.

  • For all of the reasons mentioned in the intro slides, people want flexibility in their solutions, whether online or offline.
  • The real risk is not recognizing that your end users are already putting corporate data in the cloud. Use the puppy analogy. Its all about redirect, but in a more secure, controlled way.
  • You can try it, and if you don’t like it, revert back
  • Financial decisions about IT are being pushed down to business owners, rather than ITThis is new for many managersMost businesses need something lightweightDesigned for their business, not collaboration overkill
  • As SharePoint extends into broad adoption and business solutions such as extranets securing the SharePoint content is key.
  • Customer receives a completed application and functionality with agreed upon SLAs, system uptime, and quality of service (performance). The downside is that there is minimal ability to customize, and new features/updates/changes are driven by market demand or the capabilities of the provider.How do Cloud services differ from traditional managed services?The primary difference is that you say goodbye to the major platform upgrades every 3 or 4 years, and move toward more of an iterative update. As cloud-based service providers, their revenue model changes dramatically as customers move from a high-cost, project-based model to a recurring revenue model.
  • An environment that provides great application-level control over the SharePoint environment, including access to cloud storage and other services. However, this greater level of application control shifts support/ownership of the application (SharePoint) to the customer.
  • Delivered as virtual environments and cloud storage. Customer is responsible for the entire platform and applications. Generally used by ISVs, SIs, and customers with very complex, unique development requirements.
  • Decisions need to be made about build or buy, out source or keep in house
  • He goes on to say “The emergence of cloud as the core for new 'business as a service' offerings will accelerate cloud adoption and dramatically raise the cloud model's strategic value beyond CIOs to CXOs of all types."
  • By offering the attributes of public cloud (economics, scale, pace of innovation) with some of the privacy and control features associated with private cloud, VPCs are effectively addressing many of the objections that have held customers back from the cloud model.According to IDC, an important factor driving growth in public IT cloud services spending is the expanding variety of cloud deployment options. As these platforms mature, cloud services adoption will increase dramatically. Virtual private cloud (VPC) offerings are shifting momentum from dedicated private cloud offerings toward public (shared/multi-tenant) cloud offerings.
  • The level of technical maturity and scope determines what is or can be handled in-house.
  • SharePoint 2010 also supports single sgn-on (SSO) with Directory Synchronization, and can access resources both on prem and online. However, you cannot share resources cross-farm, which means services like Search will present results side by side and not in a federated manner.SharePoint 2013 uses Oauth, which provides a server-to-server trust relationship, proviing federated search results. Likewise, this would allow BCS (Business Connectivity Services) to access data on prem and within Office365.
  • As SharePoint extends into broad adoption and business solutions such as extranets securing the SharePoint content is key.
  • These factors will help you decided how much your own organization can support, as well as help you determine the suitability of vendors
  • Point out that in this example, cloud = Office365
