  • Any purchase decisions that customers make should be based on currently available services.
  • Not only did the site scale well beyond the expected traffic, but it went from almost zero to peak (144 views/second) in under an hour
  • Over the past few decades we have seen a shift from Mainframe to mini-computer to client/server to desktop to the cloud Each new technology cycle promises to transform IT. The common denominator throughout this transformation has been a large, highly skilled IT organization required to manage the complexity. Values typically were control, standardization, prioritization, and cost.
  • We prefer to define the cloud, not as a bundle of technologies, but as a set of promises that the experience of acquiring and using IT capability can be fundamentally improved.
  • Links to articles : http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Cloud-Computing/Luring-Government-IT-to-the-Cloud/ http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=334178   Descriptions : The US Census Bureau was in need of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software to coordinate and track partnership activities between the Census Bureau and outside organizations. These partner organizations are primarily non-profit in nature, though for-profit corporations are also included. The goal of a CRM system was be provide the ability to record, track, and manage contacts and activities between various census staff and external partners. This was previously a challenge, and had become a necessity for purposes of work flow management and internal evaluation of the partnership program effectiveness as well as the programs' value to the Census Bureau. Census also recognized the need for a rapidly deployable solution that utilized the SaaS (Software as a Service) model.   To meet this need, the US Census Bureau selected a solution provided by Salesforce.com and Acumen Solutions. The Census Bureau recognized the need for a rapidly deployable solution that utilized a Cloud Computing environment, as well as a SaaS (Software as a Service) model. The reason they identified the need for a SaaS solution, is because of the rapid timeline and delivery schedule, as well as the cyclical timeframe that the decennial census operates upon. The partnership activities within Census are at their peak during a two-year timeframe leading up to the 2010 decennial census. Following that timeframe, partnership efforts decrease drastically. By using a SaaS application, the Census Bureau was able to only purchase and deploy a solution for a limited period of time, due to the subscription based model. This means that they did not have to invest a far greater amount of funding on a client-server based solution that they would only be using for 24-48 months. The Cloud Computing model saved Census millions of dollars in software, hardware and maintenance.
  • We move the complete freedom of a custom logic capability up into a metadata layer, uniquely combining the power of custom logic with the economy and robustness of a full multi-tenant environment. Someday, others will do likewise: for now, Force.com is unique in delivering this combination of characteristics.

  • The Family Services Agency of San Francisco provides support including mental health services for the city’s neediest families and individuals—they required a HIPAA-compliant case management solution to track thousands of clients and clinical data and allow them to track outcomes in real time. This is real electronic medical records – in the Cloud. FSA is a visionary organization in the realm of outcome-based case management for mental health care. They are revolutionizing the treatment of schizophrenia through early detection - and they simply could not have implemented their visionary approach without real-time, collaborative case management and reporting – which they get through the Cloud. Deployed Salesforce Enterprise Edition to 275 users to perform Human Services Case Management Using two AppExchange solutions and some customization by Exponent Partners, FSA automatically populates government forms and files for reimbursement for services rendered Custom tabs document client information including diagnosis, objectives, progress notes and plan of care Results Centralized access to information and automated billing created a large productivity gain – the number of hours spent doing paperwork for every hour of client interaction decreased from 10 to 3 . Clinicians and support personnel are able to collaborate on cases Less reconciliation problems with city reimbursements Dashboards give program managers visibility into the field and track productivity and quality
  • When you design from Day 1 for massive sharing, you build in a representation of data ownership from the bottom up instead of trying to construct a perimeter
  • Granular, governable and auditable privilege assignment elevates security in the cloud above what’s achieved in legacy environments
  • Challenge RehabCare, the leading provider of physical rehabilitation program management in over 1,200 healthcare facilities throughout the United States, needed to automate its patient prescreening process. To increase patient referral acceptance rates, the company CEO asked IT to eliminate the use of paper forms and reduce the amount of time it takes to pre-screen a patient from 5 hours to 2 hours. Patient-facing employees who work remotely at healthcare facilities required mobile access to data. RehabCare also wanted to replace an on-premise Sage SalesLogix system used by sales with a cloud-based solution to reduce maintenance and infrastructure costs. Solution After attending a Dreamforce user conference, the CIO of RehabCare told his developers about the Force.com platform. A .NET developer at the company downloaded the free Force.com toolkit and built a mobile patient prescreening application--without training--on the Force.com platform in just 4 days. RehabCare deployed the application on 400 Apple iPhones with Salesforce CRM Mobile, replacing the 7-page paper form formerly used to pre-screen patients. Employees located in healthcare facilities use the iPhones and Salesforce CRM Mobile to capture patient information. Because Salesforce CRM Mobile works online and offline, vital information is available even without a broadband connection. Completed forms automatically trigger Force.com workflows including emails to medical directors who review and approve patient referrals. Reminder emails for approvals are automatically triggered as the 2 hour deadline approaches. RehabCare replaced its Sage SalesLogix system with Salesforce CRM at the request of its sales people. The company deployed Salesforce CRM Unlimited Edition in just X days with help from a salesforce.com consulting partner X. Results With Salesforce CRM Mobile, the company reduced the amount of time it takes to prescreen a patient by 60 percent, resulting in a 150% increase in productivity. By building its mobile application on Force.com instead of in .NET, RehabCare cut development time from 3 months to just 4 days. The entire company has embraced Salesforce CRM and Salesforce CRM Mobile. The cloud-computing model eliminates maintenance and additional infrastructure costs. With Force.com workflows, RehabCare responds to the majority of referrals within its 2 hour timeframe.
  • Regulations often fail to reflect the state of technology and the current understanding of best practices, but governments still…govern
  • Partitioning of data enables compliance with regulation; further, liberating the latent value of legacy IT assets is often the most unexpected bonus of the cloud – and it’s “the” cloud, one common cloud with many interoperable services, not multiple clouds representing separate silos
  • Comprehensive reviews, and cost-effective amortization of security costs across multiple tenants enables superior trust at competitive prices
  • With Force.com, it’s easy to build Cloud 2 apps. Any app you build on Force.com can immediately take advantage of Chatter for collaboration, with no code required. Just select what applications and data (objects and fields) you want to enable, and updates to them will automatically appear in followers’ feeds, so your users will never again miss important information they need to be successful.
  • Measurable productivity improvement, independently estimated by three separate studies, is the result
  • But it’s not IT’s fault. The villains here are the traditional hardware and software vendors who are holding us back. Today, it just takes too long to build and deploy custom apps for your business. These solutions start by making us install and configure a stack. Then, even though any great developer can write code in a reasonable amount of time, it can take weeks or months to tune it, test it, deploy it, and patch it. On average, it takes about 8 months to build a custom app on traditional hardware and software. And of course, by the time you’ve built the app, the requirements have changed and you are starting over again. This isn’t a way to build an deploy custom apps for your company.

    11. 11. What Makes True Clouds Different Application service providers They flew the airplanes for you, but every plane offered its own separate opportunity to crash. Limited economies of scale: to move 2,000 people with DC-3s required 100 pilots and the costly maintenance of 200 engines. True Clouds The providers fly the planes; the planes are designed, from the first stroke of the pen, to be large-scale movers of massive workloads. Enormous efficiencies and savings: move 2,000 people with four pilots + four copilots and maintain just 16 (simpler) engines. Continual improvement and rigorous maintenance included in price of the service. False Clouds You buy the same kind of technology that’s used by true cloud service providers, but you fly it. You maintain it. You deal with any unexpected costs or operational issues. You’d better have an awfully good reason .

Better apps at lower cost will expand demand and grow total IT spending. And that’s OK.
