  30. 30. How did the CIO’s react in Carlsbad to cloud services?<br />17<br />Cloud services are a big RISK!<br />Who is in control?<br />Where are the servers doing the computing?<br />Where are my data stored?<br />How are my data managed?<br />How is security organized?<br />What happens when a service fails?<br />What service levels can I choose from?<br />What are the service limitations?<br />How is continuity guaranteed? <br />‘The PC is a risk!<br />A mini is better.<br />ergo <br />let’s build a pc with mini specifications’<br />Let’s build our own cloud!<br />May 19, 2010<br />SURF - ICT innovation by and for higher education and research<br />
  31. 31. Cloud services users are looking for<br />Freedom to choose<br />Low costs<br />Functionality<br />Accessibility<br />Reasonably high reliability<br />Reasonably assurance of security<br />18<br />They care less about:<br /><ul><li>What platform is used
  32. 32. What hardware is used
  33. 33. How things are organized
  34. 34. Etc.</li></ul>May 19, 2010<br />SURF - ICT innovation by and for higher education and research<br />
  35. 35. Consider this<br />Central facilities<br />Student PC’s<br />E-mail<br />Calender<br />Limited Storage<br />Some Collaboration sw<br />No synch<br />No Chat<br />“We’ll think about it”<br />“We know what’s best”<br />Private facilities<br />They have their own laptop<br />They have their own account<br />Choose<br />Plenty<br />Can get it anywhere<br />Sync anything<br />They use it all the time<br />“Why? It’s there!”<br />“I decide (own risk)”<br />19<br />May 19, 2010<br />SURF - ICT innovation by and for higher education and research<br />
  36. 36. It is time to rethinkwhich services a higher education institution should provide,why and for whom<br />20<br />A postal office?<br />An internet access provider?<br />A computer dealer?<br />A software dealer?<br />In the 90’s <br />many of these services were scarce.<br />But not anymore!<br />May 19, 2010<br />SURF - ICT innovation by and for higher education and research<br />
  37. 37. Let’s analyze what students, faculty and administration really do and need to support those activities…<br />21<br />May 19, 2010<br />SURF - ICT innovation by and for higher education and research<br />
  38. 38. Answer this question:Why do we offer certain facilities?<br />as a marketing instrument?<br />then you better outperform the market facilities <br />or offer something unique<br />to control procedures, usage and results?<br />then you stifle creativity and professionalism<br />or encourage workarounds<br />to help those less skilled in IT use?<br />then what is the minimum skill needed?<br />why not let their peers help them?<br />what problem are you trying to solve?<br />Is it your problem, your responsibility?<br />22<br />May 19, 2010<br />SURF - ICT innovation by and for higher education and research<br />
  39. 39. Then decide: what to make, buy, or outsource, and what to let go!<br />23<br />Cloud<br />Services<br />mission critical<br />Outsource<br />Make<br />context<br />core<br />Partner<br />Contract<br />I will<br />Help myself!<br />supporting<br />May 19, 2010<br />SURF - ICT innovation by and for higher education and research<br />

  42. 42. Prepare your IT organization:<br />for a shift in focus<br />Service production decreases;<br />Service coordination increases;<br />Information infrastructure importance increases;<br />more flexible / agile IT.<br />shift in expertise<br />less development and production;<br />more expertise on core business needs;<br />more architectural (information integration) expertise;<br />more market expertise.<br />shift toward cooperation with peer institutions<br />demand aggregation;<br />IT (energy) cost reduction.<br />26<br />May 19, 2010<br />SURF - ICT innovation by and for higher education and research<br />
