If you scoff at the idea of a private cloud, you're in peril, butpublic clouds will drive a lot of solutions, so don't be too cocky if you're a private-cloud evangelist. Virtually every customer, at least from the midmarket up, will have a mix of both.IDC is expecting significant growth in public cloud services over the next few years.Revenue from IT cloud services exceeded US$16 billion in 2009 and should reach $55.5 billion in 2014, the research group said.
Frank Gens, an IDC chief analyst
Use of cloud computing, public or private, can enable greater innovation through collaboration,rapid deployment and lower costs. This can enable greater levels of experimentationwith new ideas. In addition, many future innovations will integrate innovativeapplication and information services from others (suppliers, third parties, customers,business partners and government) that, in turn, may be built as cloud-based services.
IBM Perspective on Cloud Computing

  • Why would anyone want Office (or other applicationssuch as e-mail) as a service ?

The Cloud model

  • promises a predictableper-user, per-month fee

4. Significantlylowers up-front capital expensesWith the public cloud, the customer owns no storage or serverand has no capital expenditures

  • allows companiesto only pay for what they actually use

operational expenses can be scaled as needed

  • lowers the overallcosts duetoeconomies of scaleand theharnessing ofexpertise provided by specialists

FOR EXAMPLE, Oracle 11gR2 now offers backup to Amazon S3, an internet-based storageservice, with the Oracle Secure Backup (OSB) Cloud Module.

7. Voice of the cUstomers
THINKstrategies and Cutter Consortium teamed up to conduct a series of annualcustomer surveys over the past fIVE years aimed at gauging SaaS acceptance, adoption, and satisfaction.
32% adoption of SaaS in 2007.
63% adoption of SaaS in 2008.
97% satisfied with their software solutions
30% said thegreatest benefit was lowering their infrastructure costs
17% said they were able to obtain greater functional capabilities.
30% said their providers improved app reliability and performance
10% were happiest with the systematic software updates and upgrades
8. Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3)
Write, read, and delete objects containing from 1 byte to 5 gigabytes of data each. The number of objects you can store is unlimited.
Each object is stored in a bucket and retrieved via a unique, developer-assigned key.
A bucket can be stored in one of several Regions. You can choose a Region to optimize for latency, minimize costs, or address regulatory requirements. Amazon S3 is currently available in the US Standard, EU (Ireland), US West (Northern California) and Asia Pacific (Singapore) Regions. The US Standard Region automatically routes requests to facilities in Northern Virginia or the Pacific Northwest using network maps.
Objects stored in a Region never leave the Region unless you transfer them out. For example, objects stored in the EU (Ireland) Region never leave the EU.
YOU CANnow get Microsoft Dynamics as a hosted enterprise resource planning solution online for a low monthly cost.
Minimize your initial investment
With an online solution you do not need to purchase additional hardware or the entire software package up front, lowering your starting costs.
Get up & running quickly
Get your business on track faster. Online solutions generally offer faster deployment options when compared with on premise solutions.
Manage your cash flow with low monthly fees
Just like leasing a car, you can implement a robust financial accounting solution that will support your business as it grows with a low monthly fee.
Reduce dependence on internal IT resources
If your organization has limited technology resources available to implement, manage and maintain an ERP solution, an online software as a service offering might be right for you.
Make changes on demand
Add or remove users as your business needs change, receive product upgrades efficiently and effectively, and be assured that your technology environment is up and running.

IBM Press Release (Aug. 5, 2010)
IBM sees the healthcare market as a key business opportunity, with the overall health IT market estimated at around $20 billion.
IBM and health-insurance giant Aetna Inc.introduced a cloud-computing offering that analyzes patient data stored inelectronic medical records (EMRs) and administrative data systems and sends updates on treatment progress,drug interactions and best practices to physicians.
one of IBM's first software-as-a-service industry solutions as part of Blue Cloud initiative.
The service is priced UNDER $1,000 per doctor with multiple price points depending on the modules used.
11. The US Federal Government
Largest IT budget of any organization~ 80 billion in 2010
ADOPTING A CLOUD FIRST APPROACH towards procuringnew and replacement systems
Shifting public data to an external cloud
National Institute of Standards and Technology is developing baseline security standards for federal IT projects using cloud-computing technologies
The General Services Administration, the agency that oversees and houses the Federal Cloud Computing Program Management Office,is also working to streamline the integration of private could technologies into government IT
GSA developed an interagency initiative dubbed the Federal Risk Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), which provides joint security authorizations for cloud-computing technologies.
Initiatives for reforms to laws such as a 1986 statute that sets a looser privacy safeguard for information stored remotely on a company's servers than for files locked inside a PC or an on-site data center.
12. EU
Commission Decision C(2004)5271
Commission approves new standard clauses for data transfers to non-EU countries (7.1.2005)
COMMISSION DECISION of 27 December 2004 amending Decision 2001/497/EC as regards the introduction of an alternative set of standardontractualclauses for the transfer of personal data to third countries
Since the use of standard contractual clauses for internationaldata transfers is voluntary as standard contractualclauses are only one of several possibilities underDirective 95/46/EC, for lawfully transferring personaldata to a third country, data exporters in theCommunity and data importers in third countriesshould be free to choose any of the sets of standardcontractual clauses, or to choose some other legal basisfor data transfer. As each set as a whole forms a model,data exporters should not, however, be allowed to amendthese sets or totally or partially merge them in any manner.
Brussels, 5 February 2010
Safer standards for European citizens' data transfersto processors in third countriesThe European Commission has adopted today a Decision updating thestandard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processorsestablished in non-EU countries. The Decision modifies current standardcontractual clauses to take account of the expansion of processing activitiesand new business models for international processing of personal data. Itcontains specific provision to allow, under certain conditions, theoutsourcing of processing activities to sub-processors, while ensuring aconstant protection of personal data.
Vice-President Jacques Barrotsaid "This updated version of the standardcontractual clauses takes account of new business models and the growing trends toglobal processing and outsourcing. The updated standard contractual clausesensure a balance between global business needs and protection of EU citizens'personal data".
Challenge: Misaligned Culture
lack of executive sponsorship
lack of sharing/co-operative culture, and generally misaligned incentives (i.e., individual achievements encouraged at the expense of team success).
Success requires addressing these cultural issues in addition to any attendant process / technology issues.
Collaborationis the true value in themarriage between cloud computing and office productivity applications. Both Microsoft and Google agree that collaboration is the cornerstone of 2010.
Chris Vander Mey, senior product manager of Google Apps for Enterprise
Running the Office Web Apps requires a service provider.For internal cloud they require a SharePoint 2010 server to host the apps.
Google acquiredDocVerse earlier this year. OFFERS morecollaboration capabilities from Office 2007, or even Office 2003, than Office 2010 offers. Its good to see innovationin Microsoft Office again - even if its happening outside of Redmond
The Forrester Wave Collaboration Platforms, Q3 2009 Central Desktop is the only pure SaaS offering with a focus on small and medium businesses, as well as enterprise departments.
Central Desktop for Office is powered by OffiSync technology and is compatible with Microsoft Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 (the same functionality that users can obtain with SharePoint/Office 2010, but its available for all versions of Office back to 2003).
