1 Cloud & Smarter Infrastructure Introduction to Software as a Service (SaaS) for IBM sellers and Business PartnersThe goal of this presentation is to provide an introduction to Software as a Service (SaaS), as well as lay out C&SI’s SaaS plans for 1H 2014.
2 What is Software as a Service (SaaS)? Software as a Service (SaaS) is a software delivery model in which software and associated data are centrally hosted in the cloud. SaaS is typically accessed via a web browser. Payment for the service is through a subscription model.You are using SaaS today if you access applications like Facebook, Twitter, or gmail.Consider how we do taxes:In the past you would get the 1040 booklet in the mail from the IRS. You would go to the library to get all of the other forms. Spend a late night putting in the information, double checking the math, mailing a copy to the IRS, and praying you didn’t get audited because you weren’t a tax accountant and the U.S. tax code is very complex.Next, you could purchase tax software from companies like H&R Block or TurboTax. You would get a CD (or maybe download software) to your laptop, enter information, and submit electronically. The software had build in tax accountant intelligence. Your tax data lived on your laptop.Now we have companies like taxslayer.com or TurboTax online. The software lives in the cloud. Your data lives in the cloud. You always have access to the most current tax knowledge. The simplest version is free.Note the change in risk, in where the software resides, in where the data resides, and how you enter & submit your tax form.See the last page in this deck for additional resources on SaaS, Cloud, and utility-based computing
3 What is driving the move to SaaS? IBM Pulse20134/14/2017What is driving the move to SaaS?Market dynamics and disruptive technologies are driving the shift to SaaS consumption modelsDevelopers wantLow touch, easy to consume, continuously updated softwareCloudSocialMobileLines of Business wantCxOs wantAccess from anywhereTo create new offerings by composing services from multiple providersPredictabilityLower costsQuicker business valueEmbedded IntelligenceDevelopers - 56% of B2B technology buyers seek product info on social sites. These buyers are increasingly influenced by the Developers in the LOB, who have “done their homework” on social sites.Lines of Business - By 2016, 80% of new investments will directly involve LOB execs with LOB leading decisions in more than 50% of those investmentsCxO - OpEx will reach 50% of the market share by 2013 due to shifting from on-premise to a subscription (SaaS) model. The shift to OpEx allows companies to claim the expense as it occurs, rather than amortize it over multiple years.IT Operations - By 2016, over 25% of high end data center space in the U.S. will be in service provider data centers. Mid-Size enterprises are leveraging SaaS as the model for IT growing cloud consumption from 16% in 2010 to 36% in These off-premise data centers must still be managed.For composable services, think of Google Maps. If you look up a hotel, you get a map. If you look up a person on Google, you see their Wikipedia entry. Mix and Match.Big DataIT Operations wantsTo manage on-premise, Cloud, and hybrid environmentsGS202_LeBlanc_v1233
4 … and the decision making process is changing Decision making power is shifting from the traditional IT buyer to a new audience - the Line of Business owner & practitionerBy 2016, 80% of new investments will directly involve LOB execs with LOB leading decisions in more than 50% of those investments48% discover brands they are not aware of while searching, 24% decide which brand to purchase solely from their self directed digital research 60% of the IT purchase process decision is completed before the prospect engages a vendorCIOCTOsIT ManagersIT Operations ManagerData Center ManagerDecision MakersEconomic BuyersDecision MakersWho is this guy on the bottom left? He is the new influencer. He is likely a millennial (or Gen Y), born in the early 1980s to the early 2000s. He grew up with smart phones, the internet, and easy access to technology. Don’t know something – look it up right now. He or she loves games, new technologies, and flashy things.In many companies, the practitioner is driving something called Shadow IT. The practitioners are finding new, useful software on the web. If it is below their department’s $50K clip level, they convince their manager to purchase it for the department. The IT group was not part of that decision. Lots of different, possibly incompatible software across each department.And what she uses at home or on her phone, she will want to use at work. Microsoft pushed this policy to move from consumer to enterprise with Windows. If you used Windows at home, you would want something similar in the office.InfluencersDevelopersTechnical LeadersSystem AdministratorsIT OperationsData ScientistsRecommendersPractitionersUsers*Source: Google & Compete B2B Customer Study, June 2012
5 How can SaaS help? Improved TCO due to lower infrastructure cost Flexible subscription pricingMinimal upfront investmentContinuous delivery of new capabilities allows rapid innovation and access to immediate code fixesLower risk with try & buy approachAccelerates evaluations and decision makingInfrastructure costs – hardware (e.g. servers), software, peopleMinimal upfront – no servers, no staff. Just try it.Continuous delivery – how often is gmail updated? It could be daily.Try & buy – if you don’t like it, just switch. The less you invest up front, the easier it is to switch.
6 Remember these? The speed of destructive innovation is accelerating Remember Kodak? They missed digital photos.The iPod was innovative, until people started listening to music (and storing pictures) on their smartphones.Garmin is a fairly new company, making GPS systems. Big market for portable car GPS systems. The problem is they didn’t update … and you could get an app for it.The speed of destructive innovation is acceleratingSaaS has already changed the gameDon’t be a footnote in the history of computing.

17 What do I need to know about Data Privacy? Personal data generally includes information relating to an individual -think business card (e.g. names, addresses, home address) In some countries, also includes information about identified partnerships, associations, or corporations.IBM is a data processor, entity that processes personal data on behalf of the data controller, who would be the client responsible for entering the data.In most cases, Passport Advantage agreement covers data privacy for personal data.EU and Switzerland have additional data privacy regulations but have established the ability to create a framework with the U.S for accessing personal data.C&SI SaaS is in the process of obtaining EU Safe Harbor certification. This requires a risk assessment after we Go Live. In the meantime, we have security measures in place to restrict access to EU client data and for IBM non-U.S. employee access to Amsterdam hosting center in order to comply.IBM has an Online Privacy Statement which is another EU Safe Harbor requirementWhere is my data hosted and who will have access to it are big issues when the data is in the cloud.You’ll hear about the U.S. Patriot Act and EU Safe Harbor.See the SaaS Center of Competency web site for further details on country-unique privacy requirements
