  • Data

  • Presentation/Delivery


Identity

Identity

  • Colleague

  • Customer

  • Prospective Customer

  • Family member

The it infrastructure i want why a personal perspective

Data

  • Business – confidential

  • Personal – private

  • Who do you trust with your data?

  • What data is yours?

  • Profiling


Presentation delivery ultra light work

Presentation/DeliveryUltra Light Work

  • For me to be able to work I just need a reasonably maintained PC and my work one time PIN generator

  • This gives me access to a virtual private network (VPN) or to a virtual work station

  • A great mobile solution providing there is some hardware to use (and no key loggers)


Presentation delivery mobile devices for nomads

Presentation/DeliveryMobile Devices for Nomads

  • Basic phone & text (text based services)

  • Email client

  • Internet – iPhone impact

  • Storage – 8Gb phones (5 films @ 1.5 Gb!)

  • Camera

  • Location / GPS / co-location

  • Geiger counter

  • Projector

  • Keyboard

  • Power

  • Identity

    Just enough real estate to do the job

    Cheap enough for the mass market


Presentation delivery i just want

Presentation/DeliveryI Just Want

  • Can I use devices provided

    • In a hotel

    • On a plane

    • On a train??

    • In a coffee shop

    • In a bookstore??

      I don’t bring my own media

Presentation/DeliveryIf I’m Shopping

  • Some of my own data is useful

    • Shopping lists

    • Cupboard & fridge contents

    • Comparative prices


Presentation delivery shopping offers

Presentation/DeliveryShopping Offers

If the store knows that I am shopping it could...

  • Pre-order to collect...


Can i be anonymous ever again

Can I Be Anonymous Ever Again?

?

  • There are some simple common themes

    • Role and identity

    • Application

    • Data

    • Much of what is happening today ties these together


Other consolidation

Other Consolidation

  • Cash cards and pre-payment

  • Cards and tickets

  • Media and solid state memory

  • USB Sticks and secure storage


Current industry trends

Current Industry Trends

  • MESH

  • The view of central infrastructure will continue be virtualised away from the hardware and the applications

  • End user hardware will continue to evolve and increase in functionality

  • Decrease in hardware costs will enable wider use of IT based services

  • Standard based environments for automated maintenance

  • Embedded computing will increase

    • We will see some limited function operating systems

    • Limited function languages being used to deliver niche application functionality


So what

So What?

  • As an Architect you have a key role

  • Infrastructure maturity

    • Mature in the data centre

    • Still immature almost every where else

  • One Certainty – it’s going to continue to evolve


What will persist

What Will Persist

  • Identity

    • Roles change

  • Data

    • The Key

    • Applications and Presentation/Delivery will continue to evolve

      Step back and look forward
