2. What is Cloud Computing?
3. Larry Ellison, Ex-CEO of Oracle (now Executive Chairman & CTO)
4. Marc Benioff: Cloud computing is a technology model that refers to anything that involves delivering services over the Internet. The idea rests on something we call "multi-tenancy" and it's easy to think of it as an apartment building, where the tenants of the building share common costs such as building security or the laundry facilities, but they still have locks on their doors and the freedom and ability to design their apartments as they wish Cloud Computing Various Definitions In The Market Place Larry Ellison: Is a platform that may run standard based software (such as OS and DB), applications, and may be used as a development and execution environment. It's based on a distributed computing stack which is scalable, must be virtualized, and provides resource elasticity. It may be available on a public basis, or it may be available on a private basis." Official: Cloud Computing is Internet-based scaled computing, whereby shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices on- demand, like electricity. It enables banks to move from a capital intensive cost model to one which is based on the consumption of technology.

6. Under Supply of IT Capacity The Outcome!
7. Usage Compute Time Average Inactivity Period On & off workloads (e.g. batch job) Over provisioned capacity is wasted Time to market can be cumbersome Compute Time Average Usage Unexpected/unplanned peak in demand Sudden spike impacts performance Cant over provision for extreme cases Average Usage Compute Time Successful services needs to grow/scale Keeping up w/ growth is big IT challenge Complex lead time for deployment Compute Time Average Usage Services with micro seasonality trends Peaks due to periodic increased demand IT complexity and wasted capacity Workload Patterns Optimal For Cloud Computing
8. A recent survey by Ait Group of senior technology executives at financial institutions found that cloud computing holds the potential to redefine the relationship between IT departments and financial institution business units. 50 percent of those surveyed responded that they were likely or highly likely to use private clouds in the next 24 months. Cloud Computing According to Market Analysts Gartner predicts that by 2016 more than 60% of banks worldwide will process most of their transactions in the cloud. That growth in cloud adoption will be driven by a poor return on equity. A recent joint SAP / Ovum survey polled 400 Financial IT decision-makers, where 80 per cent said they agreed with the idea that cloud services helps organizations act more quickly on new opportunities, while another 79 per cent said they felt cloud services also helps new entrants move into the market more quickly. Over the next year, 42 per cent of IT decision makers at banks said they expect to make more investments in the cloud.
