This event is now over
Last September, at the NASSCOM Infrastructure Management Summit 2010 in Bangalore, you would have heard EMC CIO Sanjay Mirchandani say “What do I want as a CIO? Efficiency, control, choice! And of course, you could add to this, the constant messaging on the underlying need to do more with less.
And Forrester analysts John McCarthy’s message to the CIOs was: The new infrastructure will be Built Differently, Consumed Differently, Run Differently, and Governed Differently.
As discussed last year, the need to drive interest in and adoption of cloud computing and SaaS continues unabated. The experts, last year, had recommended that firms must start building out cloud and SaaS service portfolio over next 12 months in a separate business unit. Has that happened?
In the past year, we have seen some movement on various fronts. Firms are using SaaS offering to replace traditional packages in enterprises. Infra-as-a-service making gradual inroads around edges of the data center and for new apps. Cloud and SaaS has become the focal point for new edge enterprise deployment and innovations. And cloud and SaaS have taken incremental services adoption model of offshore and extend it further.
In a nutshell, the talk around SaaS, PaaS and IaaS is becoming more animated. In fact, it’s not just about Saas and IasS, but services being talked about more and more include Storage as a service, Integration as a service, BI as a service.
We have seen the impact on the service providers, as was predicted by McCarthy in his presentation. Cloud is being positioned as the politically correct alternative to offshoring, Cloud confusion presents near-term consulting gold mine, Growth in “as-a-service adoption” is providing new services integration and orchestration opportunities. Vendors are rolling out new ‘as-a-service offerings’ by reselling IAAS and other cloud offerings, New competitors are emerging.
In the backdrop of all this hyper activity, it’s time to meet again in Bangalore between September 21 and 22 for the NASSCOM Infrastructure Summit 2011, to take these discussions forward.
