Part 2 of our series on Obstacles to Cloudification

Obstacle 3 – Failure to flexibly adapt
As McKayla Maroney will tell you, you can’t achieve your dreams of winning an Olympic medal in gymnastics if you can’t flexibly adapt. Flexible adaptation is critical with cloud too. It must be a fundamental shift rather than an isolated project. Think of initial planning as your floor exercise and migration as your vault; and stay hydrated.

The Bain team found that operational changes can amount to 50% of potential cloud value.

It helps to have cloud service providers (CSPs) supporting and monitoring the system. However, the greatest benefits are realized “when business and IT align on ‘cloud-first’ guiding principles for future workloads, vertically integrated teams take project ownership from beginning to end and staff is empowered to access the resources it needs,” explained Bain.

For cloud to proceed as smoothly as possible, it also makes sense for businesses to try the following tactics:

- Simplifying and standardizing development
- Deploying automation apps
- Making any self-service options available
- Strategizing how to optimize agility
- Building a DevOps model to directly integrate new technology with operations
- Holding a staff barbecue featuring a bonfire of all legacy systems

Obstacle 4 – Lack of momentum to fully assess cloud potential
Early adopters of cloud have obviously become increasingly convinced: they have gradually transitioned almost two-thirds of processing to CSP’s. The typical company is different, though, with just 18% of tasks in cloud. Internal IT departments still may believe that their datacenter skills are preferable to cloud companies. Bain commented that was a more reasonable perspective a decade ago. Now, other than specific compliance concerns or utilizing previous hardware investment, in-house control is generally not considered worth the trouble.

Some technologists believe that on-premises virtualization will deliver as much value as cloud. Virtualization is not all bad. By itself, it’s not as affordable or fast as cloud. However, it’s a good steppingstone.

“We find that well-run IT organizations with 60% to 75% of their traditional server environments virtualized can migrate faster than those that are less reliant on virtualization,” explained Bain.

Some IT leaders still think that security and privacy struggle in cloud, but they should consider that CSP’s invest heavily in security and stay abreast of any changes to the threat landscape – which is just not possible for overworked staff in many organizations. Look at Sony Pictures and JPMorgan Chase: both companies carefully watched over their own servers, and their protections proved insufficient. The Sony case was particularly devastating. It was beyond malicious to the point of almost sadistic – with employees still being disrupted more than 90 days after the red skeleton announcement.

Another issue that’s keeping people at 18% cloud migration rather than 50% is that they think too much in terms of immediate budget reduction. Cloud arguments are more convincing when they include ongoing cost benefits, such as leaving behind the need to maintain data centers.

Actually, cloud speeds up application deployment and has other benefits related to speed. Although it’s challenging to figure out the exact numbers, acceleration advantages are essential to optimizing time-to-market, so decision-makers should consider that element.

The Sky Drone Is Falling!
A drone hovering above a Memorial Day parade lost control, hit a building and landed on a parade spectator's head near Boston.

It was only a matter of time! The operator of the drone stated that he just wanted to videotape the parade and never imagined this would happen. He said that he has flown his drone numerous times without anything like this happening.

National Moment of Remembrance
The “National Moment of Remembrance” resolution was passed on Dec 2000 which asks that at 3 p.m. local time, for all Americans “To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of Remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to ‘Taps.”

Sophie Devonshire owns a truly 21st-century business – one that would have been impossible only a few years ago. She has no headquarters. All her employees collaborate from independent locations in France, Dubai, and the United Kingdom.

Babes With Babies, Devonshire’s e-commerce business for new and expectant mothers, has cashed in by using third-platform technologies for a competitive advantage: profits have risen 600% since 2007.

BWB, like many small businesses in 2015, uses cloud tech to tighten budgets and allow staff to work variable shifts, with access to worldwide customers.

“Cloud just might be the most disruptive technology ever,” argued Greg Satell of +Forbes. (http://gplus.ly/1LqA5bc) “The world’s most advanced technologies are not only available to large enterprises who can afford to maintain an expensive IT staff, but can be accessed by anybody with an internet connection.”

The Department of Justice announced new guidelines on Friday regarding how its agencies including the US Marshals Service, the FBI, the DEA and the ATF, can use drones while still respecting the civil rights of American citizens. (http://gplus.ly/1HuNdrQ)

Highlights from the new guidance include:
- Police Drone Use Must Respect Civil Liberties
- Data Should Disappear Within 180 Days, Unless It's Needed
- Special Agents Must Seek Special Permission For Special Drones
- Online Updates, At Least Once A Year

Read the Department of Justice’s announcement (http://gplus.ly/1HuNNpH) and the full guidance document (http://gplus.ly/1HuNOKj) for more information.

The FAA is also currently considering requirements that commercial drone operators obtain a license, that drones be operated only during the daytime, and that operators maintain a visual line of sight with their craft, among others. (http://gplus.ly/1HuPgMG)

What do you think of these new policies and proposed requirements?

Well I guess this isn't "future tech" anymore - but the ramifications of it are still unknown. How long until "drones hitting you in the head" become a common occurrance?

In the first of a two-part series, we take a look at 2 of the 4 Obstacles to Cloudification (http://gplus.ly/1RhhS3b)

Obstacle 1 – Indecision regarding the privacy model
Hybrid and private clouds have become more commonplace. Many companies think private cloud is best for their business. When a company has specific needs related to regulatory compliance, data safety, or IPs, the private model can make sense. However, the Bain researchers determined that public cloud has 200% more business benefit than does the private model.

Why is public so much more valuable? The first and obvious answer is that it saves you money. However, it also is simply “more cloud-like” because you are talking about a much larger number of servers:

- More agile
- Optimal scalability
- More robust options and features

One study found that when companies moved to public cloud, they could increase the number of apps they develop and deploy by 80%, with time-to-market accelerated 70%.

“Other research has found that companies that moved development to IaaS and PaaS clouds from Amazon Web Services (AWS) reduced downtime by 72% and improved application availability by 3.9 hours per user per year,” reported Bain. (Oh yeah… That’s us.)

Decision-makers in many companies have been hesitant to switch their systems over to public cloud even with giants such as General Electric diving into the cloud so confidently. However, the incredible growth rate of public cloud for the last few years (private and hybrid have accelerated more recently) indicates that businesses are much more cloud-ready than they were in the past.

Obstacle 2 – Confusion regarding service model
Infrastructure (IaaS), platform (PaaS), or software (SaaS) – which option is best? Choosing one that does not best meet your organization’s needs hurts cloud value as well.

Specifically, software-as-a-service is often not adopted in the most organized way that optimizes value for the business. “[F]or example,” offered Bain, value is lost by “allowing business units to make siloed decisions that result in dozens of instances of a SaaS app running across a company rather than standardizing one or just a few.”

Companies are best served by figuring out exactly what they need and how users can adopt a solution systematically. Many companies need to update their application catalogs as well so that cloud is brought completely under the fold of the company, from an organizational perspective.

Hey +FortaCloud ... ARE YOU CRAZY?
So... apparently FortaCloud thought using an ad of a scantily clad women (see it here: http://gplus.ly/1PXowsT) to promote their hosting services was a good idea because, as they said in their defense on Twitter, "99% of our customers are male between the ages of 18 and 42, similar to another industry."

“I am absolutely fascinated by who would ever think this is a good strategic decision,” said ResourceiT managing director Julie Simpson. “What is even more disturbing is the way they’ve reacted to the reaction from people on Twitter.”
