Cloud Computing for Simplification!

Cloud Computing for Simplification!

And if the cloud was an opportunity to simplify? As Boileau said, “Ce que l’on conçoit bien s’énonce clairement, Et les mots pour le dire arrivent aisément.” “What is conceived well is expressed clearly, and the words to say it come easily.” Simple may indicate “lighter” and more easily understood. Simple can be effective as well. Simple can work with an important requirement, a high level of service. Some would say that the cloud is very complicated, we do not know where or how things are done. To be in the kitchen is still much more reassuring? With your recipes at home, you control your environment, components, how to implement solutions and what you operate. In the Cloud mode, everything is handled by the supplier. The complexity is hidden to offer a Service with its own characteristics. This is an opportunity for the CIO to focus for a better integration and simplification. Why not use this opportunity to simplify with the Cloud? I list the topics you can address with this objective of simplification. Look at the Service you want and associated features. 1 or 2 levels of services is not enough? Do you really need this service with 99.999% and with a 0 RTO and RPO? Work on Process and interfaces. Enjoy your work to implement Cloud to review your processes by simplifying them. Number of steps, number of players, options. The interfaces must also be given a special attention. To simplify and make more fluid the handover. Be an Architect. Also simplify the architecture! A simple and pure, rather than complexity that we find in everyday life. Rethink your Security, simplify without sacrificing safety principles. 4 against 3 levels? Perimeter security...

With Cloud, no more CIO ?

With Cloud, no more CIO ?

Cloud computing is the answer to everything : right? Business users purchase Cloud Services on their side, everyone has its solution, for its part. This is reminiscent of the arrival of the PC – Personal Computer, a topic not considered noble for the IT teams in that time. But the PC has become … Loss of control! (PC in french, Perte de Control, less funny isn’t it). IT departments have taken over and managed the famous PC. And if things were reproduced with the CC – Cloud Computing? Come back to our users who are buying Cloud Services like PC 20 years ago. Why go through the CIO team? It filters the relationship with suppliers, with them, what have only constraints and delays. Until? At a workshop that I lead, one participant said: “The Finance Department has purchased a Cloud solution to manage expenses.” The solution is very appealing. It is competitive, its deployment is very fast because all the company can register on the site over the Internet: the power of cloud in this case the SaaS. Collective good report, it is not with the CIO team that we would have succeeded in time with the budget! Expense reports are all captured, and the project progresses … surprisingly, the expense must be paid! How this Cloud solution does not pay expenses? This Cloud application must be interconnected to the Information System in this case accounting. Which are the team that can connect to the accounting system? CIO Team! Beyond this anecdote, it is in the construction of the Information System, its urbanization (although for some find it a...

What is this project? This project is called Andromède. On September 20 last, the title of  Les Echos was about the creation of a national champion of Cloud Computing: Andromède. We must first be delighted with this initiative and welcome the support of large companies: Orange, Thales and Dassault Systèmes. Guillaume DE Calignon concluded his article “But the project’s success is based on an assumption: that the alliance between three French companies will create a national champion of IT. It is not done, because Americans are currently leaders in the field . Andromède will seduce its guests with a good quality of service. About the argument of nationality, it seems a little short to conquer the IT managers of the Old Continent. ” While the initiatives of our American friends are leaders, their market provides a much more large field for experiment than a simple implementation in France. But maybe by the singularity of an offer the project can make a difference. An offer...
