  4. 4. The Cloud…
  5. 5. “Cloud computing is a model for enablingconvenient, on-demand network accessto a shared pool of configurablecomputing resources (e.g. networks,servers, storage, applications, andservices) that can be rapidly provisionedand released with minimal managementeffort or service provider interaction”Ant Clay

  7. 7. Why…?
  8. 8. “The trouble is the infrastructure in the cloud isnot sufficiently mature enough to support thekind of things were doing in the Olympics. Theapplications arent there, theyre not written forthe cloud; quite a big migration would berequired to move particularly that coreinfrastructure into the cloud.”Gerry PennellCIO, London Organising Committee of theOlympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG)July 2012 in an interview for CIO Magazine
  9. 9. Why not?
  10. 10. “The Cloud is for anyone…… but isn’t for everyone”Matt Groves
  11. 11. “If I’d have asked the customerswhat they wanted, they wouldhave said a faster horse…”Henry FordFounder of Ford Motors
  12. 12. Why Not Defined service You get what provider offer License bands Data location Can your data live in Ireland/Netherlands? Applications and features not available Telephony (VOIP) Publishing/Development Others etc….
  13. 13. Trends Most businesses considering cloud Local purchase outside of IT Wild West file sharing SkyDrive etc. Business - pro If it gets the job done Reduced IT spend CIO/IT- against Security of data Compliance Application
  14. 14. Are all clouds the same? GCAT has 25+ „Cloud‟ providers Prices ranging £0.50 pp/pm - £20 pp/pm
  15. 15. Hybrid Cloud…
  16. 16.  70% of CIOs say cloud datasecurity is a major concern 79% concerned about vendorlock in 75% worried about cloudperformance andavailability 63% concerned aboutintegrating internal andexternal servicesPrivatePublicOn-Premise
  17. 17. Organizations seem open to considering SharePoint in the cloud but 76% cited securityconcerns and functional gaps in the SharePoint online options.ForresterPublic or virtual private cloud Drivers for Cloud– Shift from capital investmentto operating expense– The avoidance of complexityand evergreen upgradesappeal to all sizes oforganizations– Payment is based on actualusage– Focus valuable IT resourceson strategic value projectsthat deliver sustainedcompetitive advantage Drivers for Private Cloud– Provides data sovereignty– Meets regulatory compliancerequirements– Provides data privacy– Need for data location control– Optimized for businessapplications– Single governance and securitymodel
  18. 18. Data sovereignty Applies to On-premise and Cloud Patriot Act Particularly International Corporations Government rules for data Contradictory Risk assessment Replication of data (for DR) Back-up copies A whole separate presentation Speak to Paul over a few beers/Wines 
  19. 19. What a private cloud shoulddeliverSelf-service deliveryon-demandOptimized forbusiness applicationsAutomatedmetering andchargebackOpen 3rd-party integrationand extensibilitySingle governance andsecurity modelInstant scalabilitywith mission-critical availability
  20. 20. Three pillars
  21. 21. 3 Pillars Data People Applications
  22. 22. ‘More’ is not always what you want …DataDataData... But it is what you„ll get!
  23. 23. You can‟t leave a leg off astool! Information drives Data Data impacts Infrastructure Infrastructure influences Data Data is the “pool” for InformationOptimizationDataContent Management (CM),Records Management (RM),Business Intelligence (BI), …Backup & Recovery,Archiving,Business Continuity, …Storage,Application,Network, …PerformanceAvailabilityQuality
  24. 24. Data What do you want What don‟t you want Who needs access? Lifecycle Removal/Disposal More data = More £ $ or € ??? „Wild West‟ file sharing SkyDrive etc. On-Premise and Cloud co-existence
  25. 25. People Personas group users Devices What access BYOD? Persona/Device matrix Defines access requirements
  26. 26. Applications Do you still require them? OOB functionality? Still relevant, multiple clones? Dates for cut-over Year end? Other event Data residency? Can they be ported to cloud? Migration?
  27. 27. Calls to action
  28. 28. Does the solution (and provider) fit with yourorganisations culture?
  29. 29.  Data classification Define policy/guidance Educate/train staff Review current process (IT touch points) Pillars Data People Applications
  30. 30.  Testing Identity Mobility SO-SO
  31. 31.  Service Level Agreements Operational changes RTFM (service descriptions) Roadmap Regulatory compliance (will vary)
  32. 32.  Migration Capacity Tools R&R Exit strategy!!
  33. 33.  Risks You do not physically possess storage of your own data, whichleaves the responsibility and control of data storage with theprovider Could become too dependent upon the cloud computingprovider With data held externally, business continuity and disasterrecovery are in the hands of the provider, YOU need to ownthis Data migration issues when changing cloud provider What happens if your cloud provider goes out of business? Commercial agreements breakdown
  34. 34.  Questions What happens if your cloud provider goes out of business? Where does Design start and end? The cloud provider is not likely to custom design Where does support start and end? How do you escalate? Who do you escalate into? Who is the dealer group? Need to be very structured on governance planning – this can costyou! What impact does a third party have on “internal” support targets ? Critically, how to you deal with unknowns and resolutions? How do you know you are not being thin provisioned How do you know you are getting what you pay for?
  35. 35.  Do not: Think „cloud‟ is an „all or nothing‟ deal Assume your Cloud Provider can design SharePoint for yourbusiness scenario Use snapshots as THE backup strategy Do not accept what the vendor is telling you!– Unless it‟s me or John, maybe Paul
  36. 36. “Service credits won’t keep yourbusiness running…”John TimneySenior Enterprise Architect (Cap Gemini) &SharePoint MVP
