Why you should always choose SaaS and Cloud when you have a choice

  1. 1. Why you should always choose SaaS and Cloud when you have a choice LUIS CARRASCO-CORTES IBM COGNITIVE PROCESS TRANSFORMATION LEADER, CANADA AND CARIBBEAN. ALL OPINIONS ARE MY OWN 1
  2. 2. Acquiring software as a service (SaaS) is an economic decision when all things are equal  As you will see in the next slides, SaaS changes the economics of running software  The most important outcome is to variabilize your cost structure and,  Simplify your ability to run complex software without having to hire IT experts and buy capital. 2
  3. 3. Acquiring software as a service (SaaS) is an economic decision when all things are equal  Therefore:  SaaS is a means to micro manage your cash flow by only acquiring capability when you need it  And cash flow is protected because when you do need more resources, you can turn on additional computing capacity in minutes to a few hours. 3
  4. 4. 4 These are the additional costs with on-premise software What is not described is the time & cash flow dimension… It can take weeks to months to get operational in this model Subscription fee is priced by the user and unlike purchasing licenses for an on- premise deployment, you can pay monthly. This gives you flexibility to control expense. Configuration is a one time nominal fee 24 to 48 hours to be operational! The Economics of Cloud Computing / SaaS
  5. 5. But we also said “when all things are equal”… Things are not equal for 99% of organizations, because SaaS is much more economically efficient, for 99% of organizations beyond the very largest  In this presentation we will prove that the SaaS offerings are backed up by levels of security and procedures that would cost most businesses millions to enable and manage  So the real question is: How much will it really cost you to provide the same level of skills and infrastructure that you can get for a fraction of the cost from IBM’s BPM and ODM cloud services? 5
  6. 6. And there is an even bigger question  Once you acquire the software on premise, buy the hardware to support it, hire or train the IT staff to run it and maintain it…  Can you send it all back and stop paying, if the business initiative that required this investment is stopped or divested?  Hint: With SaaS/Cloud you can just stop the subscription! And there is nothing to dispose of. 6
  7. 7. That said, some folks say “cloud is NOT an option”  But they are using Salesforce.com, Taleo, Workday, Concur, Netsuite or other prominent 100% cloud based services >>> They only exist in the cloud  Hopefully the irony is self evident  The fact is business users are adopting SaaS and cloud in all organizations and that adoption is accelerating daily. 7
  8. 8. Here are all the supporting security and encryption services that ensure your information is safer on the IBM Cloud than even behind your own firewall… for most organizations that don’t have multi million $ IT budgets… 8
  9. 9. Security is Fundamental 9
  10. 10. Connect to your own systems whether they are in your corporate network or in the cloud 10 This unsafe connection is NOT allowed!
  11. 11. Some of you are legitimately concerned about the security of your processes in the cloud  IBM takes security very seriously and has gone to great lengths to create a very secure environment.  Existing clients are confident in the security, encryption, connectivity and operational procedures we use to secure your data.  As a result 1M+ processes are stored in the Blueworks Live Cloud.  And you can expect the same with BPM and ODM.  More than 1,200 customers host their process models in the BwL Cloud, across many industries… and some of these clients are the largest organizations on the planet. 11
