how are service providers helping their customers to deliver IT as a Service? Peter Glock – Orange Business Services 18 May 2011, presentation to Europe Future Internet, Budapest
2 contents 1. what our customers are experiencing 2. what does the future look like for end users 3. an example of how IT is changing the way it provides services 4. what behaviours are we seeing in the network space to support these services 5. what can service providers do to support their customers
3 the changing role of IT and the IT department “for an organization that has already optimized IT internally, the main route to further reduce IT costs and contribute to the business profitability is to turn to cloud computing provided externally” –many customers aim to remove operations from the IT department by mid-decade –IT has to manage the consumerization of IT i.e. the will for users to work anywhere, at any time, and with any device
5 what the future will look like users become consumers the IT department needs to provide a homogeneous set of applications anywhere, any time, from any device the future is hybrid: these applications come from different places: internal and service provider, public and private cloud
7 cloud computing transforms your IT delivery model, technical impacts are only one part of the challenge a transformed delivery model, from ICT solution to service provider what impacts on my internal organization? business alignment & service offerings skills & competencies suppliers relationship business alignment & service offerings skills & competencies suppliers relationship what impacts on my technical existing environments? infrastructures (networks, platforms, data centers) IT applications virtualization security & performance infrastructures (networks, platforms, data centers) IT applications virtualization security & performance what benefits can I truly expect? business improvement economies (TCO, RoI) regulatory compliance be greener business improvement economies (TCO, RoI) regulatory compliance be greener how to define my target and how to measure and control? architecture (public, private, hybrid) service management level commitments and SLAs architecture (public, private, hybrid) service management level commitments and SLAs where do I start ? how do I integrate with my legacy IT ? how do I reach my target ?

12 let’s not forget the network users don’t care if it is the Cloud provider, the network provider, or the end point service provider that is at fault, it should ‘just work’ many applications need tightly defined network performance (voice, video…) differentiation of performance required for interpersonal, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine applications for some applications and/or some situations, the ‘dumb’ internet is good enough for some, an end to end SLA is required we see several behaviours…
13 …let’s not forget the network 2 Cloud providers fight to connect at the ‘best’ Tier 1 peering points, globally customers procure public Cloud services then connect via private networks with network SLA if/when/where the public internet is not sufficient interconnects between Cloud service providers and application aware network service providers network service providers provide Cloud services directly network service providers act as integrators in Build, Operate, Transfer projects to create a Private Cloud to their customers network service providers provide (private/public/hybrid) Cloud services as a managed service
14 the question is not “which is the best way?” but “how can I get the best mix of all the options?” conclusion cloud computing can help transform IT departments to support business objectives it’s a journey, service providers can help you navigate your way from consulting, through integration, into managed services hybrid infrastructures will be the normal way of providing service in the future the network is a vital part of delivering service to the end user benefit from the experience of the service providers you already do business with
