Cloud Computing White Papers

Cloud computing refers to the use of Internet ("cloud") based computer technology for a variety of services. It is a style of computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualisedresources are provided as a service over the Internet. Users need not have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them.

Enterprises look to private clouds for more than just virtual infrastructure provisioning. Private cloud vendors have started to bundle additional capabilities into their solutions, including pervasive VM management capabilities, design tools for complex application templates, and service catalogs. Over the next 12 months, more than half of enterprises will prioritize building internal private clouds. Today, the most common approach is through the purchase of commercial software to layer atop existing infrastructure resources. Regardless of the approach you choose, there’s no shortage of tools to support your efforts.

The role and purpose of IT in an organization is undergoing significant change, driven by the need for businesses to become more agile and have greater control over cost levers when using technology. This transformation of IT involves many different aspects, not all of which are technology-related, but the one thing they all share is that IT modernization is about making changes to meet the current and future demands of business. This report provides a side-by-side comparison of leading virtualization and cloud management solutions, looking at IT modernization from a data center infrastructure perspective, with the findings delivered as the Ovum Decision Matrix (ODM). It considers the significance of management in the virtualization and cloud environments and how this influences the way in which technology is deployed, used, and controlled.

Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. At the time this definition was published, “cloud” was already part of industry parlance, and was beginning to take root in the general lexicon. Additionally, global business spending for infrastructure and services related to the cloud had topped $78 billion. This year, enterprise spending on the cloud will reach an estimated $174 billion, and is expected to climb to $235 billion by 2017.2 Inevitably, as both business IT and consumer mindsets evolve toward the cloud in coming years, we will continue to witness dramatic growth in IT products in some areas, and significant reductions in other areas—resulting in a reshaping of the industry as a whole.

If your company is using cloud computing services today, it’s highly likely you are already in a hybrid cloud configuration. The key question is whether you are actively managing this reality. In January 2014, HP commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise hybrid cloud environments and how they are being managed. Forrester developed a hypothesis that tested the assertion that enterprise IT operations teams struggle to recognize and manage this hybrid state — a hypothesis that was proven out.

Several months ago, the author was discussing BI at a conference when another attendee asked, “Can you use those two terms together—business and intelligence?” Not being one to be outdone, the author quickly answered, “You cannot have one without the other, at least if you want to be successful.” As you might imagine, that led to a long discussion of what BI is (or should be). The author continued to interject the notion that cloud computing must be at the core of BI today and that having BI that is not enabled by cloud resources is sort of like eating apple pie without vanilla ice cream: You are not getting the most out of the experience (at least, not from the author’s point of view!). BI needs the cloud to be most successful. This piece helps explains why.

The major trends challenging IT organizations today are the increasing dissimilarities and hybridization of platforms inside and outside the organization. And the rush to deploy SaaS applications and the explosion in smart phone and tablet devices that users are bringing to work for personal productivity. This fractured identity environment results in significant management challenges for IT, and frustration and lower productivity for users forced to remember multiple usernames and passwords. Unified identity architecture ensures your on-premise Active Directory infrastructure can be securely leveraged to quickly bring servers (UNIX, Linux, and Windows), applications (on-premise, SaaS, and mobile) and endpoints (Mac and Mobile devices) into line with security best practice and compliance. This paper will cover the practical path of unified identity management across multiple platforms including data center, cloud, and mobile.

IT professionals are grappling with not one, but three revolutions at the same time. • First, cloud computing provides easy and dynamic access to information technology. • Next, the ecosystem of cloud-based SaaS applications has exploded thanks to cloud computing. • Finally, this SaaS ecosystem has helped power an even bigger boom of consumer-friendly mobile devices and apps that access SaaS. This Essential Guide examines the opportunities and challenges of empowering, yet controlling, user access to SaaS applications. Specifically, identity management as a service promises to simplify secure access, and management of SaaS applications while reducing password sprawl. This guide will also review how mobile computing has added to the complexity of managing access to both corporate data and SaaS, and additionally help evaluate the options available on the market.
