  2. 2. P:888-972-BLUE |WWW.FASTBLUENETWORKS.COM The Cloud is no longer something that is an emerging trend; rather it has become a consideration that is evaluated at all levels of IT. As the Cloud has emerged, it has changed the way companies build their internal networking, and the way they take these products to market. Business leaders expect rapid growth and scalability, looking outside of the organization if their needs cannot be met. It is also hard for companies to determine which products will truly increase their bottom line, and which will pass in time. The Cloud has also become a source of concern, as IT leaders fear a loss of control. Some are concerned, feeling that they are losing control of their domain. While others see it as an opportunity to increase their value within their organization. The Cloud has allowed CIO’s to utilize technology to add a greater value to the busi- nesses they are working for. The CIO is no longer a caretaker of a particular service, but an executive that helps direct a great aspect of the business. IT has evolved past the stereotype of a cost center. Rather IT has become an integral part to building and brokering the success of the organization. One question all CIO’s should ask is, how can deliver the services our company needs to grow?

  3. 3. 1. Understand Your Business Always seek to understand your core pain points. Where will a failure most impact your business? Will it affect the future of your company? By understanding what is needed to protect your business against failing you will be able to command the full power of the cloud. 2. Focus on Driving Business How can the ability to add applications to a server, or to turn on and add server space/storage in minutes affect your organizations effectiveness? An efficient cloud will bring the power to increase your effectiveness to an all-time high. CIO’s now have the ability to work towards adaptable and impactful technologies, rather than tending to infrastructure. 3. Realize Your Economic Consumption Utilize your knowledge of your organizations data utilization and needs to accurately consume the correct amount of data. From here calculate the power, tools, and labor you need to fully and properly utilize the new resource to properly develop your new tools. P:888-972-BLUE |WWW.FASTBLUENETWORKS.COM There are many different Cloud options. Instead of getting lost in the functionality and complex interdependencies of the cloud, start with a small service that you can evaluate and customize to meet your needs. Through the fine-tuning of your service you will be able to build a solution that solves a need, increasing your value. Where to Start?Where to Start? 3
  4. 4. 4. Develop Your Roadmap to Services The amount of users within your organization will drive your adoption of different services. With the Cloud, services have become a capability, rather than a simple piece of technology. Through the combination of services you can create a user experience that ultimately helps you reach the goal you are trying to achieve. As your different services develop it is imperative that you create a strategy that incorporates your users and goals. At this point it is important to ensure that the services you are evaluating will pragmatically help you bring your services to market.

  5. 5. In House Development CIO’s today must work together with other business leaders within the organization to evaluate outsourced environments to bring ideas for a dream to a reality. Through the internal development of your needs and wants, you will be better prepared to determine whether or not a public, private, or hybrid cloud is right for you. Differentiate There will be many technical differences between cloud or colocation technologies. Are you looking for a service that is handled internally, with routers and servers that can be controlled by an IT staff? Or are you looking for servers that are completely managed by another entity. The Cloud will change the way your IT staff operates and can be customized to your specific needs. Foundation What is your cloud built on? Underneath the Cloud Service Provider of your choice is a plethora of hardware choices. This architecture will determine the way in which you run your service, from its scalability, to its security and redundancy. At this stage you will determine whether you are looking for a multi-tenancy, or a private service. The cloud offers a new development model. Traditionally infrastructure was build through a gathering of requirements, design, implementation, testing, and then operation. We can now have up to 60% of all your needs immediately met at the test- ing stage. You don’t have to create the perfect service out of the box, rather can add or remove services to customize your services to meet your exact need.

  6. 6. Fastblue Networks can help your company gain a competitive edge against your competition with a cloud solution that is build around your needs. “A Successful Cloud Computing Strategy involves customizing services from one or more vendors. One way to do this is through an intermediary service provider: A Cloud Services Brokerage. A CSB can make it easier to consume and maintain cloud services, while reducing the cost and risk encountered when an enterprise tries to address issues alone.” – Gartner Please contact us at www.FastblueNetworks.com or 888-972-BLUE P:888-972-BLUE |WWW.FASTBLUENETWORKS.COM The Creation of Your CloudThe Creation of Your Cloud Test As mentioned earlier your cloud will be about 60% ready to go out of the box. At this level of readiness begin to customize and evaluate your new service. Where can features improve? Grow Through the testing of your new cloud services you will have customized a solution that will help your organization scale to where they need to be. In doing so you will be able to reach new operational goals with an increase in growth abilities. Implement Continue to develop your Cloud. Adding services where you need too, and dropping services that are not increasing the functionality of your organization. As functionality increases your delivery and accessibility will increase, causing the level of agility within your organization to exponentially. Simplify There are many Cloud products on the market, and it is easy to fall victim to the newest item. Be sure to look into your needs. You are selecting each item based on its ability to serve your needs, rather than unnecessary features. 6
