Cloud Computing Model with Service Oriented Architecture

5,054 views

Published on

This presentation will discuss cloud computing from the evolution of service orientation point of view. It will discuss cloud computing models, the prior-arts, and the evolution path in federal government from Federal Enterprise Architecture, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), and Service Oriented Infrastructure (SOI) or Federal Infrastructure Optimization Initiative, to Cloud Computing. It will also discuss the current trend of the new generation IT operating model, as well as the related business impact. While cloud computing is contributing to the enterprise evolution towards service orientation and shared services, appropriate business management and operation mechanisms must be in place in order to practice successfully, e.g. suitable business models, service models, service structure, funding models, operation models, operation structure, as well as lifecycle and governance. This presentation intends to provide a holistic view for the cloud computing evolution and shared service adoption in Federal Government.

Cloud Computing Model with Service Oriented Architecture

  1. 1. Cloud Computing Model as Service Oriented Architecture Yan Zhao, PhD President, ArchiTech Consulting LLC yan.zhao@architechllc.com www.architechllc.com July 16, 2013 The Open Group Conference, Philadelphia, PA., July 15 – 18, 2012
  2. 2. Content Summary ■ Rationale ■ Cloud computing in the evolution of Enterprise IT ■ The challenges in enterprise cloud computing adoptions ■ EA, SOA, and Cloud Computing ■ Cloud computing model in terms of SOA ■ Shared service domain in enterprise ■ Cloud computing as an integral part in the new generation IT operating Model ■ Conclusion 2
  3. 3. Rationale  Cloud computing is a natural step further from EA and SOA EA has been practiced visibly for over 10 years, necessity is well recognized, but success is limited SOA is a good concept, but also has limited success Cloud computing is a new spin for enterprise IT efficiency, enables an more effective technical implementation of SOA, i.e. shared services.  The major challenges New paradigm in organization structure and culture towards shared service and collaboration Architectural leadership and stakeholder participation Engineering discipline that follows architectural models Cloud service lifecycle management and governance  Intention of this presentation Put cloud computing in the context of SOA and EA Integrate cloud computing into the new generation IT operating model Yan Zhao, Ph.D, ArchiTech Consulting LLC 37/18/2013
  4. 4. Yan Zhao, Ph.D, ArchiTech Consulting LLC 4 The Evolution of Enterprise IT  IT in Business  Past  Operation support  Individual project based decision  Ad hoc and technology driven implementation  Current Trend  Involved into business strategies and decisions (the agility of business depends heavily on the flexibility of IT for decision support and automation)  Have long-term blueprint and big pictures as guidance (strategic plan and EA)  IT Infrastructure  Past  Hardware, software, network components  Infrastructure silos  Current Trend  IT infrastructure is a line of business; is a segment in Enterprise Architecture  Service Oriented Infrastructure (infrastructure as a commodity service)  Cloud Computing (continue the trend with technical means)
  5. 5. Yan Zhao, Ph.D, ArchiTech Consulting LLC 5 Business Evolution Associated with IT Business Online Integrated Business Business On Demand  Web access via static web pages  Web access with web applications  Online transactions with connections to backend applications Online presentation Integration of both business and IT  Backend IT system integration (interoperation across Systems, e.g. EAI)  Business integration (EA efforts across organizational stove pipes, SOA) The Evolution Path Collaborative and dynamic business  Shared services on demand  Flexible and commoditized IT infrastructure  Agile business with dynamic and adaptive business processes Enhanced IT Role in Business 1 2 3
  6. 6. Yan Zhao, Ph.D, ArchiTech Consulting LLC 6 Cloud Computing Concept  It is an evolution and re-packaging from what we have experienced already, not initiated with any new technology, but is a new practice mechanism that can expect more new technologies along the road  Prior-Art: Grid computing, utility computing, virtualization, SOA, SOI, Web Service, Application Service Provider (ASP), multi-tenant software applications, etc.  Composition (extended from NIST draft): Characteristics: on-demand service, ubiquitous network access, location independent resource pooling, rapid elasticity, measured service Optional characteristics: multi-tenant enabled, resource virtualization, etc. Delivery Models: software as a service, platform as a service, infrastructure as a service Additional delivery models: business process as a service, data as a service, human service behind cloud Deployment Models: private cloud, community cloud, public cloud, hybrid cloud Additional deployment model: Peer-to-peer cloud (more suitable for IPv6)  It enhances Service Oriented Infrastructure, and is a continuous evolution towards Service Oriented Architecture  New innovations can be expected to benefit this new paradigm
  7. 7. Yan Zhao, Ph.D, ArchiTech Consulting LLC 7 The Challenges in Enterprise Cloud Computing Adoptions  Understand the impact of the new paradigm  Separate common services from unique functions  Maximize loosely coupled services to reduce complexities and lessen the impact of changes  Identify cloud suitable common services, and cloud service types  Organization structure  Loosely coupled service organizations break stove pipes and promote collaboration  Dynamic relationships between service providers and service consumers  Organization culture  Transform vertical connections to horizontal collaborations  Change management style from command and control to motivation, facilitation, and collaboration  Adoption of new tools  Enable effective common service adoption  Enable collaboration inside and beyond enterprise
  8. 8. Yan Zhao, Ph.D, ArchiTech Consulting LLC 8 The Progress in Federal Enterprise Architecture  EA Federation  The federation model fits federal government organization structure  It provides horizontal partition to the complete EA domain  EA Segmentation  Segments are defined based on the lines of business (LoB)  It provides vertical partition to the complete EA domain  Service Orientation  As an architectural style and approach, is well adopted in architectural practice and solution implementation  A practical approach to bridge business and technologies, and enables EA to reach program/project implementation  Cloud Computing  It is one form of the technical implementations of SOA concept, with loosely coupled and sharable resources and services  It further enhances segmentation and federation implementation by enabling shared services and resources across organizations and segments
  9. 9. The Practice of EA, SOA, and Cloud Computing  EA, SOA, cloud computing: EA has been practiced visibly for over 15 years, necessity is well recognized, but success is limited; SOA bridges EA with solutions, but has implementation challenges; cloud computing provides a more effective technical means  The major challenges: architectural leadership; stakeholder participation; the discipline in implementation -> the integrated cohesive efforts across EA, SOA, Cloud Computing  Lessons learned: Need to have target vision as a soul, and need core ideas for the art of creation, e.g. need to have a target architecture for a practical roadmap  Action need: Establish clear vision via EA, solidify the core ideas with architectural guidance, have a roadmap for the efforts, promote a balanced approach (top-down + bottom-up) for success Yan Zhao, Ph.D, ArchiTech Consulting LLC 97/18/2013
  10. 10. 10 SOA Conceptual Model • Service Provider: who publish services to Service Registry • Service Consumer: who find services from Service Registry and use (or “bind” to) them • Service Registry: where contains information for available services. • Publish: providers announce service availability to consumers via Service Registry • Find: consumers discover available services inside Registry • Bind: a service provider and a service consumer reached agreement, and the consumer connected to the service to consume it. Service Provider Service Consumer Service Registry Publish Find Bind
