2 The Essence of Net Centricity  It’s the opposite of system-centricity or enterprise integration  It’s about dynamic crossing of system and organizational boundaries to achieve objectives –Greater operational effectiveness through better use of what already exists – not just what you “own” or control  It’s not about the network – it’s about who/what you can interact with via the network for your purposes when you need to  It challenges existing business/acquisition and doctrinal paradigms and incentive models –more revolutionary than most realize  It challenges system/enterprise-centric system engineering and architecture paradigms Net-Centricity – a full contact social sport 2

3 The Cloud and the Net  The Net enables the Cloud –Without a net there is no cloud –Arguably, the net IS the cloud  Network accessible services decoupled information system functionality from execution platform attributes –Advent of net-centric SOAs, albeit within the enterprise  The Cloud decouples services from execution platform ownership  Some coupling remains, however: –Platform and network performance still matter –Human/Institutional tolerance for risk –Incentives for assuming risk (contracts, treaties, enforcement) 3

4 Scope and Interdependence  What information and services are you willing to entrust to the cloud? –Not a binary issue; It’s a balancing act between trust, risk and potential reward –Some information and services are more critical or sensitive than others; select appropriate scope –Your own ability to resource and protect your information and services is limited by your business model/budget  Dependence on others is both risk and reward –Risk of failure to perform (negligence, accident, ill-intent) –Reward of sharing resource costs with others, agility  Enabled by legal framework and recourse mechanism –The net enables/entails a global perspective on this –Also a constraint (e.g., ITAR, privacy laws) 4

5 NCOIC and the Cloud  Currently exploring formation of a Cloud Computing WG under Specialized Frameworks –Would complement Services WG charter  SCOPE model for exploring information/services scope, institutional alignment/interdependence risk, and technical feasibility issues over the net  Patterns to facilitate alignment of architecture fragments among systems and institutions –Operational Patterns (including business/policy models) –Capability Patterns (specific purpose driven) –Technical Patterns (implementation models) 5
