Large enterprises

Small/Medium enterprises

-
time infrastructure





Data Center consolidations


Federal government merging large number of Data
Centers


Industry


INSA assessment (NC)



“Cloud first”


Part of new federal IT strategy



Economic value of both larger scale and
commodity services



Application architectures being refined and
evolved to include mobility as key element



With Droid, iPhone, iPad, and others coming
the demand for quick location/download of
useful applications is soaring




Larger tablet
-
style devices may be coming


Days of monolithic, LAN
-
connected, proprietary
enterprise software applications are numbered



Mobile security is becoming more important


Ability to “wipe clean” or lock mobile devices remotely


New ways to extend enterprise “LAN” for users that
would previously be “off the network”



Applications will need to assume access by a far
wider range of devices and user interfaces that are
likely connected remotely from somewhere on the
internet and probably via a wireless connection




Consumer expectation that more IT can be
provided and charged based on utilization,
not allocation



Mixed with cloud computing, this will begin
to undercut many software licensing models




Pay for what you use, not for what you
might

use



Some confusion about “cloud computing”
(public, private, hybrid)



Many roles will need to
shift and adapt


CIO


System administrators


Application developers (starting developments
using cloud environment will be important)


Support functions






May be a growing focus by users on cost and
transparency of IT services



Expectation of faster response and more
dynamic offerings (more later)



Ability to access information quickly including
use of “mash
-
ups”


A mash
-
up is a web page or application that combines
data, presentation, or functionality from two or more
sources to create new services



May be less confusion about “cloud”!




Ability to order services (compute, storage,
backups, even applications) quickly without
capital outlay is very appealing

Integration of data may not be as important



Low cost and quick provisioning may greatly
outweigh security concerns, data integration
requirements, single
-
sign on, etc.


Applications that will have a long “life” in this
new IT world will need to be
cloud
-
ready


Can scale to take advantage of more resources,
some of which might be available across a hybrid
cloud environment



Applications will need to recognize and
support a wider array of mobile devices and
access interfaces


Manual operations will be stressed and forced
to automate


Self
-
service, on
-
demand model will prevail



Dynamic sourcing pressures


IT must figure out how to add/subtract resources
(compute, storage, network, etc.) as needed



Application demands will soar


Where is my data stored in a cloud
-
based
environment?



Is my data co
-
mingled with other agencies
and companies?



Is the hosted or cloud environment secure
and well
-
managed?



App Store Effect


“I want to download these applications from the online
store and them have them linked together as a new
application. Can you help me?”



Based on business need (procurement, business
intelligence, product design, R&D support) there will
be a demand for faster and more inter
-
connected
applications



Acceptance of large (and expensive) ERP
-
level
software suites may not be sustainable




E
-
mail is primary business application



Outside of work,
Facebook

is becoming the
primary application



At some point use of social networking tools at
work will become more accepted and
commonplace



But what about mixing work, home, and
personal interests together?


Facebook accounts (as an example) would
contain mix of communications



Will social networking companies further
recognize/address this issue?



Many employees may want to share personal
and social network information in a work
context





Expect to collaborate with work colleagues
(and friends) globally




Not to be confined to a small network of
contacts within their specific area



Expect to co
-
create and work to solve real
business problems



Currently 18% of world’s population



Communication takes place on the internet
and mostly via online communities



Very impatient and desire instant results



Might be poor communicators


More openness to sharing personal
information



Wide cross
-
linking of information in coming
years will provide interesting aggregations of
personal and professional information



Identity management importance will
continue to grow and will leverage cross
-
linked information


Now possible



More cost
-
effective



Fits new generation service expectations



Dynamic



Better




Cloud wave will impact many areas, including:


Home (recent TV ads)


Enterprise environments


Small, emerging businesses



Dynamic sourcing


Applications


Infrastructure services



Greater mix of mobile demands, applications,
and devices
