1 Cloud+ Experiences with New Technologies bringing GIS to the World Eamon Walsh CTO, espatial
2 Agenda 1. Introduction to Cloud Computing for GIS 2. Examples 3. The Next Step Multi-Tenancy 4. Business Impact 5. Experience 6. Where Next?
3 What is Cloud Computing? Cloud Computing Computing from the Internet the Cloud. Scale Dynamically - On Demand Servers Often virtual servers Infrastructure in the Cloud managed for you Example: Amazon EC2 SaaS - Software as a Service Subscribe to an application for use On Demand The application is often run in the cloud
4 GIS Exists in the Cloud Today GIS software hosted in the Cloud. Web map publishing Google, Bing,.. Services / data to desktop & server GIS e.g. WeoGeo Specialized applications GIS Servers hosted in the Cloud e.g. esri Need to write custom software to use these Full user GIS over the Web Ecosystem - tools, services, hosting Cloudmade, Amazon,Skygone
5 Examples ArcGIS Arc GIS Services (data) to existing desktop / on-premises ArcGIS installs ArcGIS Server Hosted on Amazon EC2 Requires ArcGIS License, Dedicated Server Need to build and deploy and maintain the user application that will access ArcGIS Server Pay for & manage EC2 Account and server(s) yourself, or (at additional cost) through esri Manage ArcGIS Server, Data, backups, support & monitoring yourself, or pay for Managed Services
6 Example - SkyGone Skygone: Hosting of GIS Applications on private infrastructure + Services to build & deploy the applications Choice of GIS servers Dedicated Servers Set-up & Deployment Services Required Likely to need Custom Application Development
7 Example Digital Map Products Focused on Local Government
8 espatial On Demand GIS Full Strength GIS (digitize, snap ) + Geographic Business Intelligence
9 Cloud Computing for GIS Cloud computing promises lower cost, immediate availability, flexible scaling, and lower risk Cloud computing in itself is not sufficient. Server GIS in the cloud still requires for each customer: Software License(s) Server(s) Deployment Development.
10 Need to be Multi-Tenant Costs per Customer are much lower: - Share Server, License, IT costs - Eliminate set-up & deployment time & costs Need Multi-Tenancy to deliver the benefits of Cloud / Saas.
11 Multi-Tenancy Technology Multi-Tenancy is more than just hosting in the cloud Multi-Tenancy is more than just multi-user Multi-Tenancy is more than just virtual servers Multi-Tenancy is how SaaS is built in other industries Salesforce, NetSuite, Success factors Technologies Used: Directory services of Tenants as well as users & groups / roles Partition data in the database Software must be built to be Multi-Tenant Every operation checks tenant as well as user / role, every data object belongs to tenant as well as user, etc. This cannot be added on later! All customisation and configuration must be through a (web) user interface and be multi-tenant
12 What Multi-Tenancy Changes Cloud Hosting Dedicated Server(s) per customer Cloud + Multi-Tenancy Costs of servers shared across Customers License software on servers GIS, database Need to deploy servers & software for new customers + to scale May need to develop enduser application Subscription model GIS Software as a Service On Demand instant deployment & scaling Configurable application ready for use Cloud + Multi-Tenancy = Software as a Service (SaaS)
13 Business Impact Old: Desktop Server Hosted GIS Long, Costly, and Risky Enterprise GIS Projects Or very limited and inflexible web mapping Difficult to change or extend New: Multi-Tenant SaaS GIS in the Cloud Instantly available On Demand Dramatically Lower costs Initial and Ongoing Faster Time to Value From the smallest organisations to the largest Flexibility to scale to needs This will Change Everything!
14 What to look for in a Cloud GIS Full Strength GIS on the Web Full GIS Functions: View, Edit, Analyse, Chart, Report Configureable to your needs Full Web Deployment No Desktop! Available on-demand, on Subscription Not required to risk up-front Set-up & Development costs No License, Infrastructure, Maintenance Costs Pay for level of use required - Scales to your needs, Always have the latest software release Multi-Tenant Run in the Cloud Infrastructure & security from a trusted and proven provider: E.g. Amazon

24 Experience Have deployed a Multi-Tenant GIS in the Cloud Self-Service, Instant, On Demand Full-Function GIS as a Service Load Data, Create Maps Full-function GIS View, Analyse, Edit, Plot Add Users, Control access
25 Experience Free Trial: 10 s 100 s adding daily New Users, New Uses, New Expectations Want it All! Full GIS functionality Want it My Way! Flexible - Configure what s provided & how Want it to be Easy! intuitive Want it Right Now! On Demand Want to give it to Everyone! New uses of GIS
26 Where Next? Move from Server GIS to SaaS On Demand GIS Multi-tenant, from the cloud Most GIS will be on-line, not traditional GIS New Users of GIS, New Uses of GIS More Integration into business Ongoing Technology Changes Mobile, Html5, integration services
27 Conclusion GIS can be provided as an On Demand service at low cost to organizations ranging from individuals to thousands of users. This needs more than just the Cloud - Need Multitenancy. This will have major business impact on users and vendors. This change has already begun, and is bringing new adopters to GIS. This will accelerate over the next few years.
