Mark Hollands, Principal, ITR Charting a course for the next five years... Mapping the Future of I.T.
Differing industry messages –On-Demand –Adaptive –Real-Time –Organic... Agile & so on... –Now ILM and DLM Nightmare of tracking and purging data Years to complete the journey All process-driven But CIOs turned off by ‘spin’ Next Big Thing
Technology v. Alignment –Business cases –Process v. scope-creep –Service-Oriented Enterprise / Architecture –CMM, ISO 9002 –Global Sourcing Strategy –Synchronising technology & process Not just technology but skills, too Future Built on the Past
Business Requirements Applications Information Management Services Data Management Services Network Infrastructure Compute Infrastructure Storage Infrastructure Business Process Management Define Require Policies / Filters Information Information Requirements Requirements Business Framework ILM Framework IT Infrastructure Future: Information Lifecycle
Technology is not the story anymore –Governance –Compliance Anti-spam / privacy / Sarbanes / Clerp –Transparency –Access to Information –Internal security processes –Alignment to business –Business support & appreciation of technology Building the future
Quality-driven Cost a major factor –Savings of 20 % - 60 % –Commodity-style engagement Local job roles will go Challenge with processes of offshore outsourcers Project management difficulties –Expectation setting –Culture of scope creep confronted Organisations must adapt / improve Offshore Outsourcing: What’s our destiny?
80100 None of above Other Not considered Quality Cost savings unproven Projects not large enough Language/ Cultural issues Risk too great Project Management Security/ Privacy issues Prefer a local provider Barriers to Offshore Outsourcing Base: All respondents not currently outsourcing OR considering outsourcing (n=88)

Not simply cutting back –Maximising value of assets –Hope for Web Services –Lower cost of maintenance self-healing, autonomic computing –Desire for management software –Merging voice & data networks –Single networks = single skills Appeal of IP telephony / VoIP 12% of Australian companies moving to IP telephony this year Cost Control & Cost Avoidance

Need for Management Software Total % of Respondents (n=268) Yes - We currently We currently use 47% Yes - We have a future need 26% Don't Know 13% No 14%
Security - wake up! Pressure 1: Software flaws Pressure 2: Criminal intent, even terrorism threat Pressure 3: Demand for anytime-anywhere access Pressure 4: Transparency to stakeholders –Priority but no money - yeah, yeah... –No sign of change in attitude –Slow to appoint CSOs –CIOs assuming control –Few organisations with ‘total view’ of security - physical & systems Hard ‘n’ Crunchy - Soft ‘n’ Chewy

Thinking about Anti- Virus software, which of the following brands/companies are you aware of in this category? Prompted
Trustworthiness: Anti-Virus Software TRUSTWORTHINESS: A trustworthy and credible brand on which you can depend
Increasing accessibility –Anytime / Anywhere Remote access - fixed or wireless Hotspot access –‘Toy Time’ - Executive fashion parade Computers that do phone calls Telephones to do e-mail –To support, or Not to support –VPNs and secure access Federated Identity Public Key Infrastructure –Connecting with customers & suppliers –IP Telephony Squeeze on Security Oi! What do you mean you won’t support my new e-mail phone. I paid $1200 for it!
Wireless or Unwired? Why use?Why use? –83% say e-mail access –64% say calendar / scheduling –60% say web access –45% say productivity via VPN Security & Trust ImprovingSecurity & Trust Improving –Move to 802.11g standard –Great acceptance in IT departments –Plethora of devices coming into an organisation

Bandwidth with Beat New technologiesNew technologies –SuperG (Now) Data through one channel, not split into 3 (802.11 a/b/g - 802.16)Data through one channel, not split into 3 (802.11 a/b/g - 802.16) –Ultrawideband (2006 -) Bluetooth alternativeBluetooth alternative –WiMax - (2008 - ) Increased speeds for long distance wireless mobile / fixed accessIncreased speeds for long distance wireless mobile / fixed access –Over Horizon (2010 +) Mesh NetworksMesh Networks Smart DustSmart Dust SensorsSensors
Penetration 4 % in 2003 13 % in 2008* Reach 727,000 in 2003 2.8 million in 2008 –Speeds of 256 Kpbs too slow Coming soon… –SIP - Session Initiation Protocol –FTTx Fibre to the Home Fibre to the Office Fibre to the anywhere... –156Mbps in each direction Share between 16 / 32 Optical Units Broadband Challenge * IDC, 2004
