Through technology developments and strong partnerships with governments, partners, NGOs, educators and academics, Microsoft’s Unlimited Potential initiative builds on the company’s current efforts and supports a new approach to enabling sustained economic opportunity for the billions of people who are underserved by technology today. Built on the principles of relevance, access and affordability, Unlimited Potential is focused on delivering solutions in three key, interrelated areas that are fundamental drivers of economic opportunity—education, fostering innovation and stimulating jobs and opportunities. This is where Microsoft can have the greatest impact in creating a virtuous cycle of sustained social and economic opportunity.Communities & Partnerships – Microsoft as a Catalyst: A deep commitment to the communities and partnerships which are crucial for delivery and realizing the value of technology for the world’s underserved. Microsoft views its catalyst role as being much more than as a provider of technologies and solutions. We are focused on igniting creativity in communities and in-country networks to strive for new and inventive approaches in bringing the benefits of technology to their own locales. Microsoft can be a catalyst by offering tools, best practice guidance and by bringing together key stakeholders through forums for initiating community dialog and sparking new ideas within local networks and communities. Essential to leverage the knowledge and unique capabilities of government entities and NGOs for deep understanding of underserved markets and meaningful delivery of technology enablement.
To kick off lets first talk about this Cloud Phenomenon. What is the cloud? The cloud means a lot of things to different people. If you look at various analyst articles you find that they break down the cloud into these various categories. The key characteristics of Software as a Service include: BPOS, Bing, Windows Update Services, Network-based access to, and management of, commercially available software Activities managed from central locations rather than at each customer's site, enabling customers to access applications remotely via the Web Application delivery in a one-to-many model (single instance, multi-tenant architecture), including architecture, pricing, partnering, and management characteristics Centralized feature updating to download patches and upgrades. Integration into a larger network of communicating software - either as part of a mashup or as a plugin to a platform as a service.The key characteristics of Infrastructure as a service include: (VPCs, Storage, etc)Resources delivered as a service including servers, network equipment, memory, CPU, disk space, data center facilities, Dynamic scaling of infrastructure which scales up and down based on application resource needs Variable cost service using fixed prices per resource component Multiple tenants typically coexist on the same infrastructure resources Enterprise grade infrastructure allows mid-size companies to benefit from the aggregate compute resource pools The key characteristics of Platform as a serviceinclude: Application Platform Services to deploy business and ISV applications at a layer above the infrastructureServices to develop, test, deploy, collaborate, host and maintain applications in the same integrated development environment Web based user interface creation tools ease the creation of user interfacesMulti-tenant architecture with concurrency management, scalability, failover and security. Integration with web services and databases allows compositions and re-use of services Provide insight into the inner workings of their applications, and the behavior of their users. Data as a service and pretty much everything as a service. All of these areas are interesting whether we are talking about customers leveraging these services running on the internet, via secure private connections to our datacenters, or if we are helping customers delivery cloud utility services in their datacenters. (public, private, and hybrid clouds). High level overview:IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS: the core of cloud computingThe cloud is about providing services—Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Another way to look at it: the cloud is about providing a pool of computing resources that all operate together, effectively as a single computer.The cloud has been called the next logical step in enterprise computing. No longer as much about managing infrastructure, enterprise computing is now more about managing information. It’s about having your storage, your application development environment, your applications, and your security available to you when you need them—all from
Regardless of category and regardless of starting point, everyone moving to this model…From a hardware/software perspective, Apple has embraced the benefits of combining compelling software experiences running across its hardware devices (PCs, iPods and iPhones) with the power of delivering media (music, television, films) from its services running in the cloud to create a very successful consumer experience. App Store delivers applications from the Web to the iPhone and many of these applications combine the power of locally running software with wireless and GPS capabilities. Clearly Adobe “gets it” although Adobe prefers to say “client and computing”. "It's a balance of the client and cloud together that makes for the most effective applications and the best development," said Adobe Chief Technology Officer Kevin Lynch.Enterprise software vendors such as SAP, IBM and Oracle realize that they need to augment their on-premise software solutions with offerings from the cloud both to better address their existing enterprise customers’ needs and to meet the needs of smaller businesses who may not have the expertise nor financial wherewithal to deploy and customize such expensive offerings. ISVs generally find the software-plus-services model appealling, not only because it more effectively addresses their customers’ needs but also because the ISV is able to identify value-added (or what Microsoft calls “attached services”) that complement the existing software but provide valuable benefits and additional revenue streams from customers. One significant beneficiary from the services model is the smaller business without the expertise or finances to run SAP’s mySAP Business Suite or Oracle’s enterprise applications themselves. As SAP and Oracle both move to provide services-based analogs for their enterprise software, SAP with Business ByDesign and Oracle with Siebel CRM OnDemand and others (see reference below), smaller businesses are able to capitalize on software that was previously unavailable to them.Google has, in the past year, released the Google Chrome browser and its Android mobile device platform. In combination with Gears, Chrome attempts to gain some of the benefits of software for web-based applications including the creation of application shortcuts on the desktop and offline caching. Android includes an SDK for the creation of software on Android devices.Lastly, even the software “adolescents” such as Salesforce.com, NetSuite and Zoho all acknowledge the importance of software as a complement to their services offerings in most effectively addressing their customers’ and users’ needs. Salesforce.com silently provides Outlook integration for its CRM offerings and as well as Offline and Mobile editions. Zoho CRM has an Outlook edition. The reality is that CRM users are sales people and sales people are familiar with and adept at using Outlook. It is not prudent to deny them their preferred experience.
This is the Gartner & Forrester Approved SlideGarter 2012 quote is public. http://www.gartner.com/it/page.jsp?id=1278413
Timing: 5 minutesPresenter Script: So, we’ve spent the last 30 minutes or so talking about the opportunity that the cloud represents for enterprises and how we’re approaching cloud computing here at Microsoft: to give you trust in enterprise-class services, to deliver consistent connected experiences, and to give you the power of choice. Let’s get more specific now about the technologies that we’re delivering to help you embrace the cloud.There are two core aspects to our approach at Microsoft:First, Microsoft Online Services are subscription-based enterprise software services that are hosted by Microsoft and sold through our partners. These services include:Microsoft Exchange Online, which provides cloud-based e-mail messaging and online access to shared calendars and contacts.Microsoft SharePoint® Online, which provides a highly secure, central location where your employees can efficiently collaborate, find organizational resources, and manage content and workflow.Microsoft Communications Online, which delivers instant messaging (IM) and presence awareness in a highly secure environment to make it easy for your users to connect with each other in real time.Microsoft Office Live Meeting, which delivers Web conferencing capabilities that enable your users to connect with their colleagues and engage your customers through real-time meetings, training sessions, and events.Microsoft Exchange Hosted Services, which can help you protect your electronic communications and e-mail.Microsoft Dynamics® CRM, which provides CRM services to help you quickly streamline and centralize your customer information and business processes.These services are all available individually, and Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Communications Online, and Office Live Meeting are also available through the Business Productivity Onsite Suite, with standard and “deskless” options (offering reduced features at a lower cost).The second aspect of our cloud computing offerings at Microsoft is the Windows Azure platform, which offers an intuitive, reliable, and powerful platform for creating Web applications and services. The Windows Azure platform is made up of three different components:Windows Azure, a cloud services operating system that serves as the development, service hosting, and service management environment for the Windows Azure platform.Microsoft SQL Azure, a fully relational database in the cloud built on Microsoft SQL Server® technologies that provides a highly available, scalable, multi-tenant database service in the cloud.Microsoft .NET Services, which are consumable Web-based developer services that make it simpler to connect and interoperate your existing applications and services with the cloud regardless of cloud provider or programming platform.Both Microsoft Online Services and the Windows Azure platform are designed to deliver enterprise-class services that will meet your requirements for scalability, availability, and security:As we discussed earlier, both carry a minimum 99.9 percent, financially backed SLA. Both are being hosted on our global data centers, so you can be confident that the services are backed by an efficient, scalable infrastructure that will keep up with demand.And both are subject to the same rigorous, comprehensive security and certification processes that we discussed earlier.We talked about our vision for delivering consistent, connected experiences. For your developers, through the Windows Azure platform we’re helping them quickly and easily embrace the cloud using their existing skills and tools such as the Microsoft Visual Studio® development system and the .NET Framework; plus, the Windows Azure platform is an open, interoperable platform based on industry standards and offers support for third-party languages. Not only will the developer experience be consistent and connected, but it will also make it easier for your developers to build applications that deliver a streamlined, consistent experience for your users. In addition, Microsoft Online Services offerings provide true symmetry with the on-premises applications that your users are already familiar with, enabling them to transition seamlessly between their PC, the Web, and their mobile phone.And all of these cloud-based offerings complement the on-premises software that we’ve offered all along. With the depth and breadth of our platform, extending from the server to the PC to the phone and into the cloud, you have the power of choice to deploy what works best for your business without being bound by one model—for example, whether you choose to continue using your Microsoft Exchange Server deployment, transition to Exchange Online, or use a combination. Plus, your existing identity investments will extend seamlessly into the cloud with Microsoft Active Directory® Federation Services 2.0 (formerly known as Microsoft code name “Geneva”), our identity and access management platform, so you can choose the right model without worrying about adding authentication and identity management complexity to your infrastructure.Presenter Guidance:http://www.microsoft.com/onlinehttp://www.microsoft.com/azurehttp://www.microsoft.com/geneva
Presenter ScriptOur software-plus-services strategy is the key to how we will deliver on our vision across the PC, Web, and phone. This is an area that I think is pivotal to our Dynamic IT strategy. At Microsoft, we believe that your preference for how you deploy and use software and manage your IT environment will be as unique as your business. Our software-plus-services approach is about giving you the power of choice: enabling you to provide a seamless experience for users while choosing the level of control and flexibility that is right for your organization, through on-premises software deployment, cloud-based services, or an integrated hybrid of the two.On-premises, or customer-hosted, deployment has been the traditional licensing and deployment model for decades. We believe that for some specific applications, for some specific pieces of data, and for some specific users, most companies (though not all) will want to control certain elements. Our on-premises platform gives you complete control of your IT environment, provides the maximum security for your sensitive data, and enables custom application development to meet your unique business needs. Cloud-based services, providing rapid scalability and advanced manageability, enable you to subscribe to enterprise-class software hosted by Microsoft and solutions from our broad ecosystem of partners. Subscribing to online services can help you reduce costs, overcome IT skill shortages, and ensure that your organization always benefits from the latest technology. The online services model helps reduce costs and minimize total cost of ownership (TCO) in two key ways:Reducing capital expenditure, by removing hardware and datacenter costs and simplifying the planning and deployment effortMinimizing ongoing operating expenses, by reducing the administrative and management burdenMicrosoft Online Services today offers an extension of many of our best-in-class enterprise server solutions including Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft SharePoint® Online, Microsoft Office Communications Online, and Microsoft Dynamics™ CRM Online. In October 2008, we announced that we are also extending our core developer platform and .NET programming model to the cloud with a set of developer services called the Microsoft Azure™ Services Platform. The Azure Services Platform is an Internet-scale cloud computing and services platform hosted in Microsoft data centers; it provides a range of functionality to build applications that span from consumer Web to enterprise scenarios. The Azure Services Platform extends the Microsoft Windows® programming model to include cloud computing scenarios, ensuring that the developer skills that exist on our platform today continue to be relevant in the world of cloud computing. Our partners play a key role in offering you deployment choice. Where you choose on-premises deployment, they can support you through systems integration, custom application development, and value-added solutions. For cloud-based services, you can choose between Microsoft-hosted services through Microsoft Online Services and partner-hosted services. In areas where Microsoft has deep expertise, such as with Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, and Microsoft Dynamics CRM, we're building the capacity and capability to host it for you, and we currently have some very large pilots underway with companies such as Coca-Cola, Autodesk, Ingersoll-Rand, and Energizer. We’re also enabling partner hosting where partners represent specific expertise, such as Accenture, EDS, HP, and even IBM, and other partners that offer value-added services. In addition, we recognize the reality that most of our customers are managing a heterogeneous environment and want to reduce the cost of running a mixed IT environment. At Microsoft, we are committed to achieving greater interoperability and making it easier to integrate Microsoft software into your existing environment—through innovative products, community engagement, technology access, and support for technology standards.Our focus is on giving customers flexibility and choice in deployment, and given the breadth of our offerings, we are one of a very few companies in the world that can execute across such a broad array of services and experiences. Our investments on the services side are designed to extend the Microsoft experience from the desktop to new devices and across the Web and provide customers with choice. And be assured that as our services offerings evolve, we will continue to innovate around our licensing model to ensure that the licensing process is as easy and streamlined as possible. We believe that the industry shift to software-plus-services is one of the most significant shifts in technology that we'll see, and our strategy of offering deployment choice and flexibility is central to our goal of helping customers realize a Dynamic IT infrastructure to reduce costs and accelerate agility.But that choice is a relatively new one, and you may be wondering how to make it. What are the key criteria you should consider? What are the benefits of taking some or all of your users to an online deployment? Today I want to share some ways you can look at that choice – to help you determine whether online is the right strategy for some or all of your business.

Our Cloud Computing approach although not very well evangelized is very aggressive in terms of it’s approach. Microsoft is extending our enterprise software that runs core functions for enterprises today to the cloud at internet scale. You saw some of our customers that are already taking advantage of these capabilities via cloud delivery earlier. This is natural for us to do but it is quite a significant investment in R&D. Microsoft is also ensuring our platforms around BPOS, CRM, and Azure delivers innovative new services that expand the way users, developers, and consumers can access and utilize the information they need and when they need it. This is similar to our approach with windows development ecosystem where we allowed businesses and ISVs to deliver all types of solutions on our platform. We have been moving this infrastructure to the cloud over the past 5 years with things such as xCRM azure CRM infrastructure services, Azure services platform, as well as ISVs building solutions on top of our Sharepoint Online Platforms.As you can see that even some of our toughest critics have provided some nods in terms of our approach and vision here. The full Gartner quote is:“Microsoft's cloud strategy is visionary, and its ambitions are broad and span multiple dimensions including on premises and off-premises deployments and a variety of business models. No other vendor is attempting to deal with the cloud in all these dimensions simultaneously.”Another Forrester “Windows Cloud Computing is a where and when …NOT AN IF.” Should Your Windows Apps Move To The Cloud?James Staten et al Forrester ResearchDecember 10, 2008Another Gartner Quote “Strategic visionary plans for cloud platform technology (Azure, xRM), XTP (Dublin application server and Velocity distributed caching technology) and modeling-based software engineering (Oslo) use vast company engineering and business resources to surpass leading competitors.”Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application ServersYefim V.

ดู Slide นี้อีกที เป็นการสรุป บริการต่างๆที่มีในแต่ละส่วนของ Windows AzureMicrosoft’s primary platform for cloud services development is called the Windows Azure Platform. The Windows Azure Platform is Microsoft’s PaaS offering. The Platform comprises three main components:Windows Azure is Microsoft’s operating system as-a-service offering. As the name suggests, the “compute” part of this offering is built upon Windows Server but the service is considerably more than a hosted Windows Server instance. Microsoft .NET is included in this service but developers may run 3rd-party runtimes (e.g. PHP, Java). In addition to compute, Windows Azure includes scale-out storage services (tables, blobs and queues). A key differentiator of Windows Azure is the automated service management. Windows Azure provides guarantees as to the availability of Windows instances and that these remain suitably patched. The automated service management also ensures that, when a service is deployed, sufficient Windows instances are kept available to host the service.SQL Azure is Microsoft’s relational database as-a-service offering. As the name suggests, this offering is built upon SQL Server but the service is considerably more than a hosted SQL Server instance. From a developer perspective, SQL Azure will be very familiar to developers familiar with SQL Server. SQL Azure provides Transact-SQL (T-SQL) over Tabular Data Stream (TDS) and supports ADO.NET. Developers will be able to readily take advantage of SQL Azure. From an operations perspective, SQL Azure is very different because Microsoft is responsible for ensuring that the databases are available, clustered etc. Windows Azure platform AppFabric is a set of services that helps developers connect applications and services together regardless of whether these are in the cloud or on-premises. The AppFabric Service Bus provides secure connectivity between services and enables services to navigate firewalls, network boundaries and use a variety of communication patterns. The AppFabric Access Control simplifies securing services using federated authorization and providing a declarative rules-based approaching to approving claims.Referenceshttp://www.microsoft.com/windowsazure/

From the portal, “services” across each of the primary platform services (Windows Azure, SQL Azure, AppFabric) may be created, deployed, undeployed and deleted. For Windows Azure, these capabilities include administering hosted services (i.e. compute) and storage accounts. For SQL Azure, these capabilities pertain to the creation and deletion of database. For AppFabric, these capabilities include defining namespaces for the service bus and access control services.Windows Azure Developer portal: http://windows.azure.comSQL Azure Developer portal: http://sql.azure.comAppFabric Developer portal: http://appfabric.azure.com

As was mentioned previously, developers of Windows Azure may use a wide combination of Microsoft and 3rd-party technologies. Microsoft has invested in the development of (a) Windows Azure Tools for Eclipse that includes wizards and utilities that allow developers to write, debug, configure and deploy PHP applications to Windows Azure, (b) Windows Azure SDK for PHP that provides a simple PHP API abstraction over the Microsoft REST API for Windows Azure compute, storage and management services, (c) Windows Azure SDK for Java that provides a simple Java API abstraction over the Microsoft REST API for Windows Azure compute, storage and management services, (d) AppFabric SDKs for PHP, Java and Ruby that provide libraries, tools, prescriptive guidance and sample apps to allow developers in these languages to access Windows Azure service bus and access control services. These client SDKs interoperate with the Windows Azure Platform using REST-based APIs. As a result, solutions built using them may run either locally within the Windows Azure Platform or remotely.Referenceshttp://www.microsoft.com/windowsazure/interop/http://www.interoperabilitybridges.com/projects/tag/Azure.aspx http://blogs.msdn.com/b/interoperability/archive/tags/azure/http://www.windowsazure4e.org/http://phpazure.codeplex.com/http://www.windowsazure4j.org/
