31 © 2012 IBM Corporation 31 Major Technology Trends driving Business Change  Mobile revolution –Connectivity, access and participation are growing rapidly –Smart devices are becoming the primary route to get connected –Devices are getting smarter as they are increasingly enriched by mobile apps  Social media explosion –Social media is quickly becoming the primary communication and collaboration format –“digital natives” use of technology and social media platforms is accelerating adoption –Enterprises are adopting social media but are struggling to realize the value and manage risk  Hyper digitization –Digital content is produced and accessed more quickly than ever before –Internet traffic is growing globally driven by consumer use of video, mobile data, interconnectedness –An increasing number of connected devices and sensors is further driving growth  The power of analytics –New capabilities for real time analysis, predictive analytics and micro-segmentation are emerging –Top performing companies use analytics to drive action and business value –Analytics are making information “consumable” and is transforming all parts of the organization, from customer intimacy to supply chain management

32 © 2012 IBM Corporation 32 “Game Changing” Cloud Business Enablers Source:IBV Analysis Cost Flexibility 1  Shifts fixed to variable cost  Pay as and when needed Business Scalability 2  Provides limitless, cost- effective computing capacity to support growth Masked Complexity 4  Expands product sophistication  Simpler for customers/users Context-driven Variability 5  User defined experiences  Increases relevance Ecosystem Connectivity 6  New value nets  Potential new businesses Market Adaptability  Faster time to market  Supports experimentation 3

33 © 2012 IBM Corporation 33 Cost Flexibility Cloud enables businesses to reduce fixed IT costs and shift to a more variable, “pay-as-you-go” cost structure 1 Characteristics  Shifts CapEx to OpEx, when and as needed  Shifts cost from fixed to variable  Generates faster payback and higher ROI Example: An online marketplace company The cloud frees up capital by significantly reducing the need for IT investment  An online marketplace company provides service to buy and sell travel-related goods. In addition to bringing buyers and sellers together, the marketplace offers product recommendations based on analysis of buyer preferences.  The marketplace company uses cloud based analytics capabilities for its targeted marketing approach by renting hundreds of computers every night to analyze data from a billion views of its website.  Cost flexibility of the cloud allows the marketplace company access to tools and compute power that only large retailers could afford.

34 © 2012 IBM Corporation 34 Business Scalability Cloud enables businesses to grow efficiently, expanding the range of business options 2 Characteristics  Rapid / elastic provisioning of resources  No scale limitations  Benefit from scale economics without achieving large volumes on your own Example: An internet media company Cloud’s ubiquitous and nearly unlimited computing power drives scale economics and enables self-provisioning and peak/non-peak responsiveness  An internet media company streams movies on- demand with large surges of capacity required at peak times.  The company can use cloud to rapidly scale up its business without having to buy, support and operate infrastructure and resources to meet its growth requirements.

35 © 2012 IBM Corporation 35 Market Adaptability Cloud enables businesses to rapidly adjust processes, products and services to meet the changing needs of the market 3 Characteristics  Facilitates prototyping  Speeds time to market  Supports rapid prototyping and innovation Example: An open application platform for TV Cloud-enabled services can be tuned for market dynamics and demand and then rapidly updated, revamped and deployed via web services  An open application platform for TV allows content providers and distributors to react immediately to changing consumer demands and deliver what the consumers want.  Cable, IP and Satellite TV providers can create and deliver interactive, on-demand content dynamically to consumers on any device.  Content providers, TV programmers and web content developers can create or change an application – for entertainment, commerce, advertising, social media, gaming or news and sports – and deploy it all-at-once for all end-users.

36 © 2012 IBM Corporation 36 Masked Complexity Cloud enables businesses to attract a broader range of consumers with elegantly simple solutions 4 Characteristics  Expands feasible range of sophistication in products and services  Minimizes requirements of user to understand how product works or how to maintain it Example: the Mobile Print platform Cloud-enabled services leave the complexity to the experts, delivering only outcomes to the end-user  The Mobile Print platform uses tools via a cloud to convert and process print requests from any mobile device (e.g. tablet, smart phone) to a printer.  It can remove complexity for users – no need to understand / install / maintain printer device drivers for their mobile devices or targeted printers.  It will reduce cost and management of supporting diverse end-user mobile devices, content-producing applications, network configurations and printer types.

37 © 2012 IBM Corporation 37 Context-driven Variability Cloud enables businesses to create personal experiences that adapt to subtle changes in user-defined context 5 Characteristics  Supports context-driven, user- centric experiences (preferences, movements, behaviors) Example: A cloud-based, natural language assistant The computing power and capacity of cloud enables individualized, context-relevant customer experiences  This is to support user defined preferences. Cloud can be used to store information about user preferences and enable the customization of product or service which is being delivered.  A cloud-based, natural language “intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator” that relies on context to create a more personal, intimate interaction. Leveraging the computing capabilities and capacity of the cloud, the application “understands a wide variety of ways to ask a question, grasps the context and returns useful information in a friendly way, either audibly or by displaying results.

38 © 2012 IBM Corporation 38 Ecosystem Connectivity Facilitating engagement, alignment and innovation, cloud enables external collaboration with partners and customers 6 Characteristics  Facilitates new value nets of partners, customers and other external players Example: tourism value chain More and more, companies are relying on collaborative ecosystems to provide the input for innovation that will drive their growth  New value nets can be created including subject matter experts (SMEs), shared infrastructure and services from cloud service providers. Productivity can be enhanced through customer and partner interactions.  In tourism value chain, cloud based platforms can support sharing of resources, processes and workforce between companies, hence it can also enable joint marketing and collaboration. The ecosystem connectivity enables efficiencies required in an emerging market to deliver quality tourism at low cost.

41 © 2012 IBM Corporation 41 Six Steps to Getting Started with Cloud 1 Develop the Strategic Direction Analyze Workloads E-Mail, Collaboration Software Development Test and Pre- Production Data Intensive Processing DatabaseERP 2 Determine Delivery Models Enterprise PrivatePublic Hybrid Trad IT 3 4 Define the Architectural Model Service Definition Tools Service Publishing Tools Service Fulfillment & Config Tools Service Reporting & Analytics Service Planning Role Based Access OSS BSS Infrastructure Platform Software End Users, Operators Service Catalog Operational Console Cloud Services Cloud Platform Build the Business Case 56 Implement the Roadmap

42 © 2012 IBM Corporation 42 Business Cloud Summary  Cloud Computing is a model of shared network-delivered services, both public and private, in which the user sees only the service, and need not worry about the implementation or infrastructure  The Cloud has 5 distinct layers and value propositions. Very significant opportunities exist above the infrastructure level, where much of the cloud discussion has been focused previously.  The Cloud model can be truly disruptive if it can reduce the IT operational expenses of enterprises: development, management, integration, and energy consumption.  By reducing expenses and increasing efficiency and flexibility, the Cloud model of services can improve the way we manage travel, transport, airline, finance, mobile information, and more.  In the long run, development of an enterprise will depend on composable web-delivered services on flexible infrastructure: that is, the Cloud.  Moving to higher value business services with focus on “data”, “analytics” and “people”.

43 © 2012 IBM Corporation 43 Summary  Travel industry was expected to be among the greatest beneficiaries of new, low-cost, information-rich distribution opportunities.  More than a decade later, however, online channels have mostly focus on price.  Now the new internet and cloud computing technologies and business models can offer the potential for online differentiation and the provision of value-added services and features for which tourists will pay for the services.  To capitalize on these developments, enhance the tourists travel experience and create opportunities for improved financial performance, –the tourism ecosystem must learn to use the new cloud computing to “play well” with all the others in the ecosystem.
