17 Cloud Adoption Progression for End Users Experiment Non critical Use Full Production Transformed IT IaaS PaaS SaaS Public Clouds Private Hybrid Clouds Education Transition Policies/Procedure s Workflow Change Proof of concept Integration Provider Switching Customization/ Rearchitecture Security Payment Models EXPERIMENT: End users will gain education on cloud providers, the cloud ecosystem, and cloud business models. Any testing of cloud systems will in large part be done in the public cloud. NON CRITICAL USE: End users will select a system that is not business critical and does not contain sensitive data for a cloud transition. Some end users may begin building private clouds if the long term strategy includes that model. FULL PRODUCTION: End users will securely move business critical systems into the cloud. At this stage, companies will begin moving architecture and applications between cloud systems and/or onpremise systems to find the optimal mix. TRANSFORMED IT: End users will adopt new practices and policies for cloud enabled IT. Applications will be customized or rebuilt for cloud use, and processes will reflect greater flexibility and availability of IT systems.

18 Thank You

19 Speed of Cost Reduction Cost of Adoption/De Adoption The speed and rate of change of cost reduction can be much faster using Cloud Computing than traditional investment and divestment of IT assets

20 Optimise ownership use A key aspect of moving to Cloud Computing is the ability to select hardware, software, and services from defined design configurations to run in production
