Cloud Predictions

Cloud, Just the facts, Trends No Comments »

This Morning I decided will blog about 8 points that to my mind seem some kind of predictions and just then saw a Google Alert message that had 14 predictions from Chirag Mehta and Wang. They said more than what I was sure and could not have agreed more – then just copeid them over here…

1.Most new procurement will be replaced with cloud strategies

2.Private clouds will serve as a stepping stone to public clouds

3.Cloud customers will stop saying “the cloud is not secured” and start asking hard questions about how the cloud can be secured

4.Public cloud adoption will be temporarily reduced by concerns about cybersecurity. Private clouds will be kept for security and backups.

5.A transition from best-of-breed purpose-built applications to “cloud mega stacks” will occur.

6.App stores will be the predominate channel for application deployment

7.User experience and scale will no longer be mutually exclusive

8.Custom application development will shift to the cloud

9.Development-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service will merge

10.Integration vendors will be expected to offer integration beyond data

11.Consumer tech features such as social business platforms, mobile enterprise capabilities, predictive analytical models and unified communications will continue to proliferate in the enterprise

12.Customers will demand better virtualization

13.The overall technology landscape will simplify thanks to the cloud

14.Archiving and data management will be core competencies for cloud users

Cloud – Moving beyond hype

Not one CIO or CTO is avoiding the thought of cloud adoption – plain truth. There could be some who do not have a Business-IT posture Read the rest of this entry »

Business Technology Summit

Locuz - SOI & SOM, Locuz way - SIM/CMDB/IDM, Trends No Comments »

Here too my paper got selected and am speaking at the Bangalore event.

The topic is same as the one I spoke at INTEROP but this time around, I will touch base on “Service Orientation for the Enterprise Cloud”. You may wonder, cloud is all about service orientation anyway so what would SOC (my musings on SOx, after SOI & SOM) – Service Oriented Cloud – be about.

As cloud definitions and perspectives evolve, we found our way to explain what goes within and beyond.

See you at the BT Summit.



SOI = “Unified Computing”

Events, Locuz - SOI & SOM, News, Trends No Comments »

Next week Cisco would announce their Unified Computing strategy codenamed “California”. These are blade servers that would sit right in middle of the Data Centre unlike all other Cisco products that found place in the network closet.

This in good sense is SOI we wanted to achieve and were seeking product maturity for levels of automation it would demand.

In our definition of SOI Orchestration is most vital and hopefully would soon be available across all Data Centre components. I am upbeat about the Cisco announcement.

Unified Computing = SOI, if I may conclude.



Testimonial – Locuz RIM

It is matter of immense responsibility and pride for all of us at Locuz. Sanjeev should be credited with the fact that his decision then helps Samit stay healthy thru tough times like these.




An Award well deserved…

I was in Dubai on the last weekend of August, hosted by Symantec for their Partner Event called – Partner Engage 2008.

It was nicely done event.

We were conferred the award – Partner for Emerging Solutions. This is well deserved because it resonates with our focus on IT Automation and our SOM (Services Oriented Management) strategy.

SOM is the cornerstone of SOI and we have been able to successfully develop blue print for customers that brings enormous visibility into their Enterprise Infrastructure assisting making informed decisions. The relationship between CI’s (Configuration Items) is key to our SOM approach including users (is user a CI? Yes!).

The award by Symantec is to recognize us in helping customers offer technology; processes and sustainable methodology in building the blocks that will make them Adaptive Enterprise.

Thanks and Cheers!
