Topic and Objectives
 Overview of cloud computing – What is cloud
  computing? What types of cloud computing may
  affect your organization?

 Objectives:
  •  Benefits of the cloud
  •  Risks of the cloud
  •   Understanding the different types of cloud
  •  How is it impacting nonprofits
What is the Cloud?
 Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service
  rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software,
  and information are provided to computers and other
  devices as a service over a network, typically the Internet.

 Cloud computing provides computation, software, data
  access, and storage resources without requiring users to
  know the location and other details of the computing
  infrastructure.

             Focus on Applications and Services
Computing 360⁰
 1960s and 1970s - Mainframes and Mini Computers


 1980s and 1990s – PCs and Networks


 2000s – Internet


 2010s and beyond – Mobile Computing
Computing 360⁰




 Yes, Dorothy. But someone does!
Cloud Computing Growth
 Worldwide Cloud Computing Market is
 currently $8 billion.

  •    40% in the US.

  •    Spending on Cloud Services will increase at
      annual rate of 27%.

  •    SaaS market will hit $14 billion by 2014.
Why the Cloud?
 Flexibility
 Additional Capacity
 Collaboration
 Shared Access
 Centralize Your Information
 Cost
 Security
Benefits of the Cloud
 Reduced Costs - Fewer IT hours required for network
  setup, software installation, upgrades and maintenance.
  Lower costs associated with in house server purchases and
  maintenance. Lower up front costs for software purchases.
  Pay as you go model, like a utility.

 Saves Time - Rapid deployment of software applications,
  no need to install software and configure networks and
  security. Better response time in most applications
  compared to standard server and hardware.
Benefits of the Cloud
 Scalability - You can scale your needs seamlessly rather
  than having to go out and purchase new equipment and
  software.

 Convenience - Staff and volunteers can access your
  applications from almost any Internet connection without
  setting up VPNs, or systems to allow remote access to your
  servers.

 Open Architecture -You are no longer tied to a specific
  operating system, since most cloud applications will run on
  all web browsers.
Benefits of the Cloud
 Disaster Relief - Your data will be stored in a secure data
  center. You won’t have to worry about data loss from
  natural or unnatural disasters.

 Security - Your data will be stored with companies that are
  SAS 70 compliant. Data centers are protected by firewalls,
  staffed by employees that have passed background checks
  and require ID badges for access. Ultimately, much more
  secure than you can ever afford.
Risks of the Cloud
 Loss of Connectivity - If you Internet connection goes
  down, you don’t have access to your applications. If you
  have a slow Internet connection, then cloud computing
  probably will not work for you.

 Service Level - Make sure your provider is reputable and
  provides an acceptable level of uptime and rapid response.

 Regulatory Compliance - If you require HIPAA or PCI
  compliance, or other compliance, make sure your provider
  is certified.
Types of Cloud Computing
 IaaS - Infrastructure as a service. Hardware, servers,
 storage.

 PaaS – Platform as a Service - Operating systems,
 database management, system monitoring.

 SaaS – Software as a Service. Software applications,
 full web services.
How is your Nonprofit
        using the Cloud now?
   Email - SaaS
   Web site - PaaS and SaaS
   Online banking - SaaS
   Off-site Backup - IaaS
   Payroll Service - SaaS
   Social Media - SaaS
   Webinars - SaaS
   eCommerce - SaaS
Common SaaS Applications
 Software as a Service
    Document Sharing – Google Docs, MS Office Live, Zoho
    CRM Solutions – Salesforce, eTapestry, Convio
    Accounting – NetSuite, Intaact, FastFund
    Payroll – ADP, Paychex
    Backup – Mozy, Carbonite
    Collaboration – Webex, GoToMeeting, ReadyTalk
    Social Networking – Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter,
     Google +
Benefits to Your Organization
 Staff can focus on what it does best – mission and
    programs
   Always have the latest technology
   Fixed, predictable, measurable costs
   Reduce IT expenses
   Save on total cost of ownership
   Improve capabilities and service levels
Things to Consider
 More IT choices make decision making more
  complicated and confusing.
 Some cloud based services are still in their early
  development stages. Haven’t reached the level of
  product maturity compared to products on the market
  for many years.
 Other services are more mature and well developed,
  such as web-hosting, conferencing and CRM.
Things to Consider
 Lower Barrier to Entry
    Because of the pay per user subscriber model, large scale
     enterprise applications can be cost effective for small
     organizations. The outright purchase of these
     applications would not be cost effective.

  Total Access
     More staff and volunteers have access to the SaaS
      applications.
     Fund Raising, accounting, volunteer management have
      solid offerings in the cloud.
Things to Consider
 Software Costs
    Legacy software applications installed on computers
     and networks require maintenance and upgrades.
    Migration to the cloud to replace these legacy systems
     will be gradual.
    Monthly fixed fees will increase. Buying and upgrading
     software costs will decrease.
Things to Consider
 Hardware Costs
   Hardware costs will decrease as there will be less
    reliance on internal networks and servers.
   New computers will be less expensive, since most of the
    computing power will be moving to the cloud.
   More money will be spent on mobile devices – smart
    phones and tablets.
   Internet and telecommunication costs will increase due
    to higher bandwidth requirements.
Economy of the Cloud
 Reduced capital costs
    Lower IT hardware costs
    Lower IT staff costs


 Higher Operational Costs
   Monthly service fees for licensed SaaS
   More reliable Internet and telecommunications
Evaluating a Cloud Solution
 Consider the following when selecting a vendor for a
 cloud solution:
   Features
   Reliability
   Connectivity
   Security and compliance
   Backup procedures
   Ownership of data
   Costs – upfront, on-going and extras
Evaluating a Cloud Solution
 Service Level Agreements
    Contains performance metrics
    Problem management resolution
    Security
    Data backups
    Data ownership
Cloud Security
 Advantages
    External cloud data storage reduces exposure of sensitive
     data
    Automated security management
    Redundancy and disaster recovery in place

 Disadvantages
   Trusting vendor
   Customer’s inability to respond to audit findings
   Indirect administrator accountability
   Loss of physical control
Review
 Cloud computing has a lot to offer, especially to small
  nonprofits
 Cloud solutions are easier to implement, more secure
  and are often greener because of reduced IT
  requirements.
 Cloud solutions are not right for every organization or
  software function
 Review with peers, board, staff and consultants before
  deciding to reach for the clouds.

  • 7. What is the Cloud?  Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a service over a network, typically the Internet.  Cloud computing provides computation, software, data access, and storage resources without requiring users to know the location and other details of the computing infrastructure.  Focus on Applications and Services
  • 8. Computing 360⁰  1960s and 1970s - Mainframes and Mini Computers  1980s and 1990s – PCs and Networks  2000s – Internet  2010s and beyond – Mobile Computing
  • 9. Computing 360⁰  Yes, Dorothy. But someone does!
  • 10. Cloud Computing Growth  Worldwide Cloud Computing Market is currently $8 billion. • 40% in the US. • Spending on Cloud Services will increase at annual rate of 27%. • SaaS market will hit $14 billion by 2014.
  • 11. Why the Cloud?  Flexibility  Additional Capacity  Collaboration  Shared Access  Centralize Your Information  Cost  Security
  • 12. Benefits of the Cloud  Reduced Costs - Fewer IT hours required for network setup, software installation, upgrades and maintenance. Lower costs associated with in house server purchases and maintenance. Lower up front costs for software purchases. Pay as you go model, like a utility.  Saves Time - Rapid deployment of software applications, no need to install software and configure networks and security. Better response time in most applications compared to standard server and hardware.
  • 13. Benefits of the Cloud  Scalability - You can scale your needs seamlessly rather than having to go out and purchase new equipment and software.  Convenience - Staff and volunteers can access your applications from almost any Internet connection without setting up VPNs, or systems to allow remote access to your servers.  Open Architecture -You are no longer tied to a specific operating system, since most cloud applications will run on all web browsers.
  • 14. Benefits of the Cloud  Disaster Relief - Your data will be stored in a secure data center. You won’t have to worry about data loss from natural or unnatural disasters.  Security - Your data will be stored with companies that are SAS 70 compliant. Data centers are protected by firewalls, staffed by employees that have passed background checks and require ID badges for access. Ultimately, much more secure than you can ever afford.
  • 15. Risks of the Cloud  Loss of Connectivity - If you Internet connection goes down, you don’t have access to your applications. If you have a slow Internet connection, then cloud computing probably will not work for you.  Service Level - Make sure your provider is reputable and provides an acceptable level of uptime and rapid response.  Regulatory Compliance - If you require HIPAA or PCI compliance, or other compliance, make sure your provider is certified.
  • 16. Types of Cloud Computing  IaaS - Infrastructure as a service. Hardware, servers, storage.  PaaS – Platform as a Service - Operating systems, database management, system monitoring.  SaaS – Software as a Service. Software applications, full web services.
  • 17. How is your Nonprofit using the Cloud now?  Email - SaaS  Web site - PaaS and SaaS  Online banking - SaaS  Off-site Backup - IaaS  Payroll Service - SaaS  Social Media - SaaS  Webinars - SaaS  eCommerce - SaaS
  • 18. Common SaaS Applications  Software as a Service  Document Sharing – Google Docs, MS Office Live, Zoho  CRM Solutions – Salesforce, eTapestry, Convio  Accounting – NetSuite, Intaact, FastFund  Payroll – ADP, Paychex  Backup – Mozy, Carbonite  Collaboration – Webex, GoToMeeting, ReadyTalk  Social Networking – Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google +
  • 19. Benefits to Your Organization  Staff can focus on what it does best – mission and programs  Always have the latest technology  Fixed, predictable, measurable costs  Reduce IT expenses  Save on total cost of ownership  Improve capabilities and service levels
  • 20. Things to Consider  More IT choices make decision making more complicated and confusing.  Some cloud based services are still in their early development stages. Haven’t reached the level of product maturity compared to products on the market for many years.  Other services are more mature and well developed, such as web-hosting, conferencing and CRM.
  • 21. Things to Consider  Lower Barrier to Entry  Because of the pay per user subscriber model, large scale enterprise applications can be cost effective for small organizations. The outright purchase of these applications would not be cost effective.  Total Access  More staff and volunteers have access to the SaaS applications.  Fund Raising, accounting, volunteer management have solid offerings in the cloud.
  • 22. Things to Consider  Software Costs  Legacy software applications installed on computers and networks require maintenance and upgrades.  Migration to the cloud to replace these legacy systems will be gradual.  Monthly fixed fees will increase. Buying and upgrading software costs will decrease.
  • 23. Things to Consider  Hardware Costs  Hardware costs will decrease as there will be less reliance on internal networks and servers.  New computers will be less expensive, since most of the computing power will be moving to the cloud.  More money will be spent on mobile devices – smart phones and tablets.  Internet and telecommunication costs will increase due to higher bandwidth requirements.
  • 24. Economy of the Cloud  Reduced capital costs  Lower IT hardware costs  Lower IT staff costs  Higher Operational Costs  Monthly service fees for licensed SaaS  More reliable Internet and telecommunications
  • 25. Evaluating a Cloud Solution  Consider the following when selecting a vendor for a cloud solution:  Features  Reliability  Connectivity  Security and compliance  Backup procedures  Ownership of data  Costs – upfront, on-going and extras
  • 26. Evaluating a Cloud Solution  Service Level Agreements  Contains performance metrics  Problem management resolution  Security  Data backups  Data ownership
  • 27. Cloud Security  Advantages  External cloud data storage reduces exposure of sensitive data  Automated security management  Redundancy and disaster recovery in place  Disadvantages  Trusting vendor  Customer’s inability to respond to audit findings  Indirect administrator accountability  Loss of physical control
  • 28. Review  Cloud computing has a lot to offer, especially to small nonprofits  Cloud solutions are easier to implement, more secure and are often greener because of reduced IT requirements.  Cloud solutions are not right for every organization or software function  Review with peers, board, staff and consultants before deciding to reach for the clouds.
