Where do we place application workloads?Application Architecture Where is data stored, what data is visible, how is it accessed, how is data integritymaintained and how is the data domain governed?Data Architecture What is the infrastructure and operational model that will support the Cloud/MobileSolution and how do we integrate with PaaS, IaaS solutions in the marketplace?Technical Architecture What is the light-weight integration model, transaction model and the ComplexEvent Processing model for the Cloud/Mobile solution?Integration Architecture What are the Security and Privacy requirements, information visibility and storageand retention requirements for the Cloud/Mobile SolutionSecurity Architecture How do we deliver SLAs through monitoring, instrumentation and effectiveIncident/Problem/Change for the Cloud/Mobile Solution?Systems Management ArchitectureRequires a focus on Architecture . . . 2012 Right Brain Systems LLC. </li> <li> 17. 1717 and rethinking ApplicationsCharacteristicsoftheseApplications Smaller Apps that can seamlessly interact withother to implement business capabilities Developing applications in this space requires Agiledevelopment practices Architecture promotes loose coupling and highcohesion between components Componentized and Externalized legacy services Requires faster delivery cycles (60-90 days) andfrequent updates New multi-sensory input devices drive different andfeature rich user interfaces and innovativeInformation visualization techniques Require an Integration model that handles highvolumes of stateless transactions with systems andservices that reside private, public and hybrid cloudenvironmentsBenefits Bring solutions to market faster, this allows businessesto experiment and innovate Drives better utilization of current investments ininfrastructure and thereby reducing costs of entry Simplified and automated provisioning anddecommissioning of Apps and Infrastructure helpsreduce IT backlog Facilitates the move to emerging technologies sincethere are no capital outlays for It Infrastructure Allows businesses to focus on their core competencyand not worry about the increasing complexity of IT Drives standardization into the infrastructure andapplications portfolio 2012 Right Brain Systems LLC. </li> <li> 18. 1818The Cloud requires different capabilitiesSoftware Custom Applications LoB SaaS Apps SaaSPlatforms Custom Configurations Enterprise PaaS PaaSInfrastructure Legacy Infrastructure Enterprise IaaS IaaSBusinessLayerVisualization, Haptic Design, Responsive DesignBusiness and Information ArchitectureBusinessOrchestrationand ContinuitySecurityModelData VisibilityModelService LevelManagementDemand andConsumptionModelSecurityData Access, Device Access, Role based security, Visibility, Privacy, IncidentManagementIntegration Complex Event Management, Lightweight SOA, Business Process OrchestrationData Business data architecture, governance, metadata (structured and unstructured)DevOpsLean/Agile AD and AM, Continuous Delivery, Continuous Integration, Cloud SoftwareConfiguration Management and Release Management 2012 Right Brain Systems LLC.Private Hybrid Public </li> <li> 19. 1919Service Providers need to change From Technology driven to Architecture driven approaches From manpower to IP and Frameworks From custom development to Assembly and integration From outsourcing to As-a-Service Offerings From IT process focused to Industry Value Chains 2012 Right Brain Systems LLC. </li> <li> 20. 2020Take the customers through the Journey to the DestinationPlan and Architect:Plan the transformation of yourorganization and applications to takeadvantage of cloud and mobile, developan enterprise architecture, understandworkload characteristics and execute afew rapid prototypesDesign for Run:Develop reference architectures for usingSaaS and custom applications for the cloudthat include standards for usability, data,security, integration and systemsmanagement.
