8 7 REM/ITD (Cg-XVI, 27th May 2011) Information Technology Support Activities Key objectives and directions WMO 2.Phasing out of desktop operating system (OS) Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2003 suite which have been in use within the Organization since mid Implementation of an e-Library to provide 7 x 24 x 365 online access to materials in a variety of formats including print, e-books, audio/visual. 4.Adoption of a cloud computing model is a major part of the strategy to achieve efficient and effective “Green” IT. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) reduce the power consumption, as well as volume of physical hardware and software produced and shipped.

9 8 REM/ITD (Cg-XVI, 27th May 2011) Information Technology Support Activities Key objectives and directions WMO 5.Implementation of unified communications and collaboration solutions to meet WMO current and future needs

14 13 REM/ITD (Cg-XVI, 27th May 2011) A word on cloud-computing WMO Simply put, Cloud computing refers to applications and services offered over the Internet e.g. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a service (PaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). These services are offered from data centers all over the world, which collectively are referred to as the "cloud."

15 14 REM/ITD (Cg-XVI, 27th May 2011) On-premise vs cloud-computing WMO SaaS On-premise approach Add $ for Hardware and Storage$$$ Software LicenseAdd $ for Operational SupportAdd $ for Scale and CapacityAdd $ for High Availability Included: High Availability Operational support Scale and capacity Hardware and storage $300 – 1000 $50 Source: Forrester Research

16 15 REM/ITD (Cg-XVI, 27th May 2011) Benefits of Cloud Computing WMO No hardware, software integration Built-in disaster recovery Virtually no storage limit Always on, always current + Easy Deployment Secure on-line access Manage policies centrally Fast search Simpler architecture Lower cost Lower compliance risk Improved productivity

19 18 REM/ITD (Cg-XVI, 27th May 2011) Final thoughts WMO As IT permeate deeper into the workplace, if IT doesn’t work, the Office can’t function. But IT in isolation doesn’t have any business value. It is essential to recognize the absolute dependence of most businesses upon the Information Technology and the quantity, quality and the availability of the information that IT provides and supports. Therefore there are and will be an increasing need to align business practices with IT on a continuing basis.
