  2. 2. THE 5 IT MEGATRENDS CLOUD IOT 3D PRINTING WEARABLESSMART DATA • 76% Enterprises have a formal cloud strategy • 40% Organizations expect IOT to have significant impact over the next three years • 49% growth in worldwide shipment of 3D printers • 73% of organizations have invested or plan to invest in Big data in the next 2 years Source: Gartner & Forrester
  3. 3. Benefits of Enterprise Architecture Lower business operation costs More agile organization Business capabilities shared across the organization Lower change management costs More flexible workforce Improved business productivity Lower software development, support, and maintenance costs Increased portability of applications Improved interoperability and easier system and network management Improved ability to address critical enterprise-wide issues like security Easier upgrade and exchange of system components Reduced complexity in the business and IT Maximum return on investment in existing business and IT infrastructure The flexibility to make, buy, or out-source business and IT solutions Reduced risk overall in new investments and their cost of ownership Buying decisions are simpler, because the information governing procurement is readily available in a coherent plan The procurement process is faster - maximizing procurement speed and flexibility without sacrificing architectural coherence The ability to procure heterogeneous, multi- vendor open systems The ability to secure more economic capabilities Efficient business operation Efficient IT operation Better return on existing investment, reduced risk for future investment Faster, simpler, and cheaper procurement
  4. 4. Business Drivers for the cloud assessment How to obtain 30 to 40 % reduction in TCO What areas in the landscape can be optimized What applications in the landscape can be rationalized How to rationalize applications Identify the right cloud service provider Identify to Increase business continuity Understand the maturity level of processes /IT Develop implementation Roadmap
  5. 5. Key Characteristics of our assessment approach • Cloud agnostic • Multifaceted scoring system • Decision and Analysis accelerators • Focus on user comfort - quick wins, low risk, high gain transformations that reduce TCO • Provide an early view of ROI • Enterprise architecture alignment • Strong business stakeholder alignment
  6. 6. ASSESSMENT APPROACH INVENTORY & DATA COLLECTION SEGMENTATION, VALIDATION & ANALYSIS RECOMMENDATIONS & ROADMAP ACTIVITIES Week { 1-2 } Week { 3-6 } Week { 7-8 } Current State Analysis Application Inventory, CMDB, Agent/Agentless, Work load identification, Stake holder interviews Business Aspiration Discovery Stake holder interviews, Document Business goals, drivers, and constraints Evaluate Business Capabilities Assess readiness for Business Transformation Principles and Alignment Identify/Review Architectural/Business principles Identify Target Architecture Value propositions and KPIs Segmentation Classify applications based on business criticality, risk, workloads, Security/Network constraints, business, technology stack and more Validation Rank applications and validate Analysis Portfolio Infrastructure Network Database Application Dependencies Financial Vendor Licensing Functional Redundancies Technology Stack Outsourcing Operational Excellence Replace Migrate Extend } IAAS PAAS SAAS Consolidate Remediate Re-Platform Retain Decommission
  7. 7. Application prioritization (Decision criteria for On-Premise to Cloud) • Proximity/dependency on other systems • Real time Vs Batch dependencies • Technology Stack complexity • Application owner acceptance – Cloud appetite • Windows Server 2003 Stack • Applications built on limiting/legacy technology • Extreme throughput requirements • Business Criticality • Data classification • Cloud feasibility • Applications on recently procured physical • Early stage of depreciation cycle • Expected Costs • Operating system version upgrade considerations • Application upgrade considerations • Application age • Application - percentage change in functionality anticipated • Application Performance • Business Continuity Plan • Availability considerations • Disaster Recovery Considerations • Security considerations • Integration considerations • Service considerations • Platform considerations • Environment considerations (Dev/Test) • Functional redundancies • Maintenance Costs • Risk Assessment
  8. 8. Roadmap Buckets Change the application and replace the application with a more appropriate software Replace Migrate Extend Consolidate Remediate Re-Platform Consolidate processes/appli cations in to one and move to the cloud Lift and shift the application to a new platform Re-Engineer the application to adopt cloud features Add additional features to existing application while moving applications to the cloud/Extend services Refactor the application to improve integration Retain the application on premise, minimal maintenance effort and costs Retire application, archive data as needed, follow ALM guidelines Retain Decommission
