33 Example: An online marketplace company Cloud enables businesses to reduce fixed IT costs and shift to a more variable, “pay-as-you-go” cost structureExample: An online marketplace company1Cost FlexibilityAn 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.CharacteristicsShifts CapEx to OpEx, when and as neededShifts cost from fixed to variableGenerates faster payback and higher ROIThe cloud frees up capital by significantly reducing the need for IT investment
34 Example: An internet media company Cloud enables businesses to grow efficiently, expanding the range of business optionsExample: An internet media company2Business ScalabilityAn 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.CharacteristicsRapid / elastic provisioning of resourcesNo scale limitationsBenefit from scale economics without achieving large volumes on your ownCloud’s ubiquitous and nearly unlimited computing power drives scale economics and enables self-provisioning and peak/non-peak responsiveness
35 Example: An open application platform for TV Cloud enables businesses to rapidly adjust processes, products and services to meet the changing needs of the marketExample: An open application platform for TV3Market AdaptabilityAn 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.CharacteristicsFacilitates prototypingSpeeds time to marketSupports rapid prototyping and innovationCloud-enabled services can be tuned for market dynamics and demand and then rapidly updated, revamped and deployed via web services
36 Example: the Mobile Print platform Cloud enables businesses to attract a broader range of consumers with elegantly simple solutionsExample: the Mobile Print platform4Masked ComplexityThe 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.CharacteristicsExpands feasible range of sophistication in products and servicesMinimizes requirements of user to understand how product works or how to maintain itCloud-enabled services leave the complexity to the experts, delivering only outcomes to the end-user
37 Example: A cloud-based, natural language assistant Cloud enables businesses to create personal experiences that adapt to subtle changes in user-defined contextExample: A cloud-based, natural language assistant5Context-driven VariabilityThis 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.CharacteristicsSupports context-driven, user-centric experiences (preferences, movements, behaviors)The computing power and capacity of cloud enables individualized, context-relevant customer experiences
38 Example: tourism value chain Facilitating engagement, alignment and innovation, cloud enables external collaboration with partners and customersExample: tourism value chain6Ecosystem ConnectivityNew 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.CharacteristicsFacilitates new value nets of partners, customers and other external playersMore and more, companies are relying on collaborative ecosystems to provide the input for innovation that will drive their growth

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 infrastructureThe 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 SummaryTravel 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.
