Private Clouds - What Enterprises Should Know Before Implementation
Enterprises are rapidly implementing private clouds for sound business
reasons. Private clouds offer greater agility, enabling companies to quickly
adapt to constantly changing business needs and innovate faster than
competition. Digital and cloud services can be provided to developers at a
pace of innovation that equals any public cloud. Companies can maintain
security and compliance, along with the reliability, availability and
stability of IT systems of large enterprises. Private clouds also provide
better SLAs for new services than most public clouds offer.
While there is a sense of urgency surrounding implementation, enterprises
must still carefully choose the best technology stack to deliver their new
dynamic cloud infrastructure and services. They must carefully develop a
transition plan, un... (more)
What, Why, and How of IaaS and PaaS
The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are
delivered as services.
In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at
Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important
cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform
as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what
exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and
the strategies for IT to transition into and take advantages of these
emerging service models.

SaaS, IaaS or PaaS: Which Cloud Migration Option Is Right for You?
By Joe Michalowski
Can you believe it's only been four years since cloud computing really went
mainstream? It feels like our businesses have been relying on the cloud for
so much longer. However, companies still aren't 100% in the cloud, and hybrid
and multicloud deployments are becoming popular, so choosing the right cloud
technology is a constant consideration for IT.
When you look at your migration options, you're bombarded with all kinds of
"as a service" offerings. You have to know the basics of SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS
if you want to make the best decision-and no matter what, monitoring has to
be your migration foundation.
Making Sense of SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS for Cloud Migration
Despite near-universal adoption of some form of cloud computing, some
concepts still appear blurry for many business leaders... (more)
Cloud usage continues to gain momentum across all industries. In a recent
FutureScape: Worldwide Cloud 2017 Predictions report, IDC predicted that
between 60 percent and 70 percent of all software, services and technology
spending will be on the cloud by 2020.
With this increase in cloud usage comes a corresponding need for employees
with cloud skills. Supply has not kept pace with demand, however. The State
of Cloud Readiness Study 2016 found that 53 percent of IT leaders are
struggling to acquire the necessary skills to support cloud initiatives
within their organizations, while almost half indicate staff training is not
This is a serious problem, but one that hold tremendous upside potential for
career advancement and success for network and data center professionals with
the right training and certifications. For those weighing a career in IT,
As the title suggests one way to approach the ‘Platform Business Model'
(described in detail in our library section) is to consider how it is being
adapted for specific industry sectors, via Cloud-centric acronyms such as:
GaaP - Government as a Platform BaaP - Banking as a Platform TaaP - Telco as
With a key goal of describing practical aspects of the trend and of course
our Cloud focus, this aspect is one of the headline themes of our Platform
The agenda will include these specific industry scenarios and we'll explore
them to illicit the key ingredients of a common Platform Architecture.
GaaP - Open Government, as a Platform
This tailoring began simultaneously with the emergence of the model itself,
as the earliest of thought leaders like Tim O'Reilly seized upon its
potential for transforming IT across all industries, not just the ‘digital

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider
architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No
matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of
refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not
taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about
whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large
component makes sense for your project.
This post assumes that you have experience with software architecture and
services (you’ll find some words about my experience on the bottom of this
post). I won’t go into the details of Wikipedia’s or Martin Fowler’s
definitions per se. Much more I will talk about what microservices and/or SOA
could and should do for your project.
Microservices? SOA? Both? None?
I’ll leave it up to you if they are bot... (more)
The Most Important Question to Ask Before Automating Your Workflow (and Two
Having automated workflows sounds like a sexy thing. And it is. It feels
pretty awesome to be able to initiate a process with a button and forget
about it while the work gets done.
But that doesn’t mean you have to automate every process in your office. I
mean, I think people can take care of replacing the copy paper on their own,
right? Right? Come on, people.
Because automation shouldn’t be blatantly applied to every corner of your
business, it’s good to start with a very basic question before you begin.
There are a lot of ways to improve your business – why are you looking to
automation? What do you hope to get out of it?
Here are some good and bad reasons companies automate their processes.
I want to save time. Automated workflows help you spend less time ... (more)
