Cloud benefi ts
Flexibility (agile & scalable)
The amount of resource consumed by the user can be increased or
decreased to meet their operational needs. Supplier capabilities for
such a service appear unlimited and available in any quantity and for
any amount of time
Chargeability (charged based on
consumption)
Users only pay for the services they use. All resources should be
easily monitored / managed so that charging & use is clear and
transparent
Accessibility (accessible
anywhere)
As cloud & hosted services are delivered over the internet and
accessed through standard web interfaces, uw should be able to
manage and/or consume services anywhere there is an internet
connection, using the device of their choice
Availability (delivered on-
demand)
A user can chose to provision computing capabilities,
such as storage, processing, network and memory, (or an
application) as needed automatically without requiring
human interaction with the service provider & services
often have built in resiliency and recovery

Organisational size and IT maturity
What skills are in house and what capability to implement and operate IT services exist.
Nature of the application/solution
New solution areas and projects are far more likely to be hosted /provided as a service.
Exiting Investment
Organisations wish to maximise the life and value of investments already made in technology
and licensing so hybrid models are an important consideration.
Data sovereignty
Concerns over regulatory, legal jurisdiction and perceived security fears restrict the nature
of how some organisations adopt cloud solutions.
Connectivity
Accessing high speed internet is still not a given in many parts of the UK and the wider world.
Bandwidth constraints constrain appetite for hosted services
“Cloud and on-premise
solutions will need to
co-exist alongside
each other in most
organisations over the
coming years”

Choosing a supplier/partner
• What features/requirements do you need
• Length of time (min & max) for the solution
• What scale will the solution go to (CPU’s,
storage, users?)
• How variable will that scale be? Is it an organic
growth, are there peak periods and low periods
that the solution should scale for?
• Do you have internal IT to implement yourself,
or do you need a managed service
• Which geographies will the solution need
to work in?
?
