About That Revenue…  Systems & Storage “As-A- Service” On/Off Premise  More Business is Better Than Bottom Lines.  Data Management & Analysis  Development in Multiple IT Departments & on Front-End (Dev, Marketing, Sales)  On-Demand Requests Inside Your Business Outside Requirements  On-Demand Requests  Faster Services, Sites  Yesterday is Too Late  Real Time/Always On  The Computer is in Your Pocket.  3rd Party Development or Access to Your Platforms and Information.  Buying Your Services, As A Service (it better work).

All rights reserved. 6 There’s A New Sheriff In Town  It’s Not An Evolution, It’s A Transformation with more buying power than ever before.  Democratization & Flattening of IT (Developers Choose, Not Their Managers, Not the CIO)  More Developers than ever before are empowered to spend in the $10K to $50K price-range.*  Shift of business responsibility & revenue growth to developers vs. full IT organization.  Saving Money is Good. Growing the Business is Better.  Cross Platform Tooling Wins, with Choice of Languages, Tools, Integration into Existing Systems Required.  Dev/Ops, No-Ops, Continuous Dev, Test, Deploy at Speed Business versus Systems move. The Developer Elite Emerges as New & Empowered Decision Makers 6 *Evans Data, 2011

If you can program it, then it’s a platform. If you can’t, then it’s not.‖

  13. 13. © 2010 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 13 IT is Flattening… and the DIY Economy is Incoming Developers Have More Buying Power Thank Ever Before (up to $50K) Most Fall into the $10K bucket… But recurring revenue & credit card swipes under $500 price point will win.
  14. 14. © 2010 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 14 The Long Tail Effect It‘s Not the Big Guys Fueling these Changes  Start-up Culture Fueling the Dev/Ops & No/Ops Culture  Ownership of Code is Pride in What You Deliver. It increases morale, allows everyone to be part of something big (versus just ―the engineers‖ or ―operations‖ or ―test‖).  Given history, this will repeat itself with spending responsibility, increasing choice of products & technologies, and fuel demand for CIOs to hire in developers that aren‘t afraid to make the tough decisions (But better be good at it).

  15. 15. © 2010 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 15 APIs, Tooling Consistency & Developer User Experience Matter Most (DX) In DIY Economy: • Users & Developers both demand ease of use, tools they already know how to use, easy to access/free/open source solutions and something that they can get jump-started on in under 5 minutes… • PS: If your download or sw install (or online offer) takes more than 5-10 minutes to acquire, you‘ve lost a customer.

  16. 16. © 2010 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 16 The Evolution of Developer Experience IT is Flattening. Experience is Demand, not Ask.  It‘s likely your free software will *not* be used if downloaded.  Only 55% of developers manage to evaluate just 50% of the software they download.  In order to get your software used, ensure that the user experience is consistent from beginning to end  Download  Install  Deploy  Must be Free  Do *not* underestimate the install experience. Majority of software users stop trying to use a product if it can‘t/won‘t install properly or does not have baseline requirements most developers use.
  17. 17. © 2010 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 17 User Experience Must Be Delivered. • Developers, Engineers, and Technical roles alike are expecting better user experiences across their entire IT & development infrastructure now more than ever before. • With the flattening of IT, skill-sets are evolving and developers expect easier & better ways to build, automate & extend across not just one level of business anymore, but their entire infrastructure. • Will It Run? What About Uptime? It‘s about how fast, how stable, how secure. Features come second. If your product usability & features are robust (must be coupled together) you will get more revenue for your product. • It‘s not about the technology going away… it‘s about the evolution of how people want to build and are utilizing products, services, and more in new ways to meet their business needs Companies Need to Deliver on Their Products Based on How Users Want to Experience Them.
  18. 18. © 2010 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 18 Community Comes First Drive Free, Create the Base… then Provide Upsell Features/Functionality for those who require it… and consult your User Base when Planning your Rev Model. Free or Open Source; Build the Community first & the Revenue Will Come Later The Better You Bundle, The More You *Will* Sell. Price per Usage Increasingly Popular (because it can be as simple as a Credit Card Swipe)

  27. 27. © 2010 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 27 Make Your Users Successful… Always The #1 Rule  Your Users Will Always Be Evolving… and that‘s okay. Just Make Sure You Bring them along with you for the ride as your company shifts for their benefit.  The number one job I focus on is ensuring our users are successful today, tomorrow, and in the next 5-10 years. Sometimes it‘s uncomfortable. Well, change is, but it‘s also necessary. Embrace it.  You are not only looking to ensure your customers as users are successful – but also your own development teams. As you evolve with new methods, technologies, practices, ensuring transparency each step of the way is critical.
  28. 28. © 2010 Cisco and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. 28 In Summary It‘s Always About Your Users – Internally & Externally Allow Your Development Teams to Be Creative.. Word Will Spread Deliver Amazing User Experiences, from Software Product Itself to Download & Deploy. Think About Software Distribution from the Outside In… How Do You & Your Teams Want to Consume, then Use that As Your Model for Your Customers Community Comes First, Then Revenue. Always. Take Risks. Let Your Dev Team Do More. So You Have Time to Focus on the Business.
