9 Service Models What is cloud computing ? Cloud computing providers offer their services according to several fundamental models:Infrastructure as a service (IaaS),Platform as a service (PaaS), andSoftware as a service (SaaS)IaaS is the most basic and each higher model abstracts from the details of the lower modelsIaaS, In the most basic cloud-service model, providers of IaaS offer computers – physical or (more often) virtual machines – and other resourcesPaaS, cloud providers deliver a computing platform, typically including operating system, programming language execution environment, database, and web server. Application developers can develop and run their software solutions on a cloud platform without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware and software layers.SaaS, users are provided access to application software and databases. Cloud providers manage the infrastructure and platforms that run the applications. SaaS is sometimes referred to as "on-demand software" and is usually priced on a pay-per-use basis. SaaS providers generally price applications using a subscription fee.Source Wikipedia
10 Deployment Models What is cloud computing ? Cloud computing providers typically deploy their services several ways:Public cloudPrivate cloud (includes Community Cloud)Hybrid cloudA cloud is called a 'Public cloud' when the services are rendered over a network that is open for public usePrivate cloud is cloud infrastructure operated solely for a single organization, whether managed internally or by a third-party and hosted internally or externallyCommunity cloud shares infrastructure between several organizations from a specific community with common concerns (security, compliance, jurisdiction, etc.), whether managed internally or by a third-party and hosted internally or externally. The costs are spread over fewer users than a public cloud (but more than a private cloud), so only some of the cost savings potential of cloud computing are realized
12 Government policy Government and the Cloud Goal: The Australian Government will be a leader in the use of cloud services to achieve greater efficiency, generate greater value from ICT investment, deliver better services and support a more flexible workforce.Key Action: Australian Government agencies will consider cloud services for new ICT procurements. Agencies will choose cloud services where the cloud service represents the best value for money and adequate management of risk compared to other available optionsAustralian Government as stated goal is to be a leader in the use of cloud servicesFrom July 13 AGIMO expects that all agencies will consider cloud services when undertaking new ICT procurementsSource: Australian Government Cloud Computing Policy v2
13 Key considerations Government and the Cloud Value for money Adequate securityDelivering better servicesImproving productivityAchieving greater efficiency ; andDeveloping a more flexible workforceData security, sovereignty and privacy are the most common concerns that organisations have with the cloud.So much so that Attorney General’s Department released a guideline in July to
14 Data security and sovereignty Government and the CloudIn early July 2013 the Attorney-General released the Australian Government policy and risk management guidelines for the storage and processing of Australian Government information in outsourced or offshore ICT arrangements under the Protective Security Policy FrameworkWhy these guidelines were developed? Agencies have procured outsourced arrangements for the storage and processing of Australian Government information for several years, and are actively examining cloud computing services for their possible efficiency, flexibility and lower costs.These guidelines aim to help government decision-makers evaluate the benefits of the adoption of cloud computing services; and help agencies to consider the contextual risks specific to their agency and operating environmentWhere there are risks to personal information, the potential impacts are broader than just financial considerations and include loss of public confidence and trust in Government.Where these risks are calculable and manageable, relevant Ministers are to accept those risks before an agency head can enter into such an arrangement.Agency heads wanting personal information (as defined in the Privacy Act 1988) to be stored and processed in outsourced onshore public cloud or offshore arrangements, are to seek Ministerial approval (both the relevant agency’s Minister and the Attorney-General as the Minister responsible for privacy and protective security).National Privacy PrinciplesThe ten National Privacy Principles (NPPs) contained in schedule 3 of the Privacy Act 1988 (Privacy Act) regulate how large businesses, all health service providers and some small businesses and non-government organisations handle individuals’ personal information.The NPPs cover the collection, use, disclosure and storage of personal information.The NPPs will be replaced by the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) on 12 March More information on the APPs can be found on the law reform page.NPP 1: collectionDescribes what an organisation should do when collecting personal information, including what they can collect, collecting from third parties and, generally, what they should tell individuals about the collection.NPP 2: use and disclosureOutlines how organisations may use and disclose individuals' personal information. If certain conditions are met, an organisation does not always need an individual's consent to use and disclose personal information. There are also rules about direct marketing.NPPs 3–4: information quality and securityAn organisation must take steps to ensure the personal information it holds is accurate and up-to-date, and is kept secure from unauthorised use or access.NPP 5: opennessAn organisation must have a policy on how it manages personal information, and make it available to anyone who asks for it.NPP 6: access and correctionGives individuals a general right of access to their personal information, and the right to have that information corrected if it is inaccurate, incomplete or out-of-date.NPP 7: identifiersGenerally prevents an organisation from adopting an Australian Government identifier for an individual (eg Medicare numbers) as its own.NPP 8: anonymityWhere possible, organisations must give individuals the opportunity to do business with them without the individual having to identify themselves.NPP 9: transborder data flowsOutlines how organisations should protect personal information that they transfer outside Australia.NPP 10: sensitive informationSensitive information includes information relating to health, racial or ethnic background, or criminal records. Higher standards apply to the handling of sensitive information.

Many e-Invoice solutions do a great job getting you invoices faster, but if your just getting a bad invoice faster, have you really gained anything? Smart Invoicing is all about validating invoices in the Ariba Network before your AP department ever receives them. We have 3 lines of defence consisting of over 70 configurable business rules.And with this application, companies are achieving touchless invoice processing of 98% and their invoices are posting directly to the AP system without being blocked and without requiring manual intervention.Currency MatchVAT / GST IDsFaster billing and receivables processing at lower cost35

This will demand a more flexible approach from managers, HR and leadership but also with regards to the tools a company offers its employees to be effective when working from home. The ability to access business functionalityand analytics anytime, anywhere with a broad range of mobile devices will be a fundamental requirement. As a result, we will begin to see convergence of the mobile, in-memory, and the cloud, enabling users to do many things that they couldn't do before.Increased Importance of Cloud Security - Cloud computing security will continue to be a concern for companies throughout 2013, whether they’re using a public, private or hybrid cloud. Organisations are looking for applications and servers located in highly secure data centres that feature an array of physical and network safeguards. Businesses get the pay as you go model, while their service provider keeps the environment stable and safe.Rise of the Geopolitical Cloud - In 2013, there will be many reasons to consider "location" and "borders" in cloud computing as how governments perceive those concepts versus how networks do may be at oddsArrival of Social in all Cloud Solutions - In 2013 social elements will be in the fabric of all solutions – not tools on top of other applications. Almost all cloud vendors will begin infusing social in all of their cloud solutions.
