10
Current and Emerging Trends
11
Transformation underway in IT
  • Effects of recession
  • Cloud computing
  • New technology companies helping accelerate cloud
    transition
  • Renewed interest in mobile devices

12
Virtualization
  • Server virtualization
  • Storage virtualization
  • Network/fabric virtualization
  • Client systems
  • Application delivery can be virtualized

13
Cloud computing (BIG deal)
  • Greater interest in hosting services externally
  • Software-as-a-service (SaaS)
  • Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)
  • Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)
  • Large enterprises
  • Private clouds, Hybrid clouds
  • Small/Medium enterprises
  • Public clouds, real-time infrastructure

14
Focus on cost-saving approaches and technologies
  • 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

15
Rapid increase in mobile devices and software
applications
  • 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

16
Software changing to take advantage of cloud and
mobile devices
  • 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

17
On-demand computing
  • 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

18
Impacts of these trends
19
People within IT
  • 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

20
People outside of IT
  • 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!

21
Cloud and Emerging economies
  • Ability to order services (compute, storage,
    backups, even applications) quickly without
    capital outlay is very appealing
  • www.myhosting.com
  • 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.

22
Application architectures will evolve (cloud,
mobile)
  • 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

23
IT Operational challenges
  • 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

24
Security worries
  • 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?

25
Application- and Business-oriented demands
  • 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, RD 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

26
Service Expectations of a New Generation
27
Emerging ways
  • 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?

28
Immediate response
29
May expect more interactive support and access to
information
30
Less delineation between social and professional
communications
  • 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

31
Generation Y
  • 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

32
Generation Z (net generation)
  • Currently 18 of worlds population
  • Communication takes place on the internet and
    mostly via online communities
  • Very impatient and desire instant results
  • Might be poor communicators

33
Privacy and information sharing
  • 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

34
On-demand Services and Capabilities
  • Now possible
  • More cost-effective
  • Fits new generation service expectations
  • Dynamic
  • Better

35
Exciting period ahead
  • 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
