  1. BI in the Cloud – Sky is the limit Vishal Agrawal Product Technical Architect Infosys Tech Ltd Anand Govindarajan Principal Technology Architect Infosys Tech Ltd

  2. Current state of BI systems • Key characteristics • High infrastructure requirements • Unpredictable load • High upfront investment • High development & maintenance costs • Longer duration for provisioning • Dependency on IT • Issues • Limited adoption • Longer cycle time for BI application • Restricted Availability

  3. Cloud BI systemsBenefits • Utility model of computing • Lower entry and maintenance costs • Massive processing power on-demand • Faster time to develop applications • Reduced Risk • Multiple ways to consume the BI capability • Multiple deployment and delivery models

  4. Cloud BI SystemsScenarios • Short lived BI projects • Quick prototyping • BI systems for small & medium businesses • Enterprise BI applications • Data mining • Custom applications (e.g. Web 2.0, Mobile application etc)

  5. Cloud BI delivery models • Public Cloud • SaaS (Software as a Service) • PaaS (Platform as a Service) • IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) • Private Cloud • Hybrid Cloud

  6. Cloud BI delivery models Public cloud - SaaS • Key characteristics • Prepackaged end to end BI solution on the cloud • Easy management • Easy integration of the enterprise and external data • Unlimited auto scaling • Easy to implement (within days, weeks) • Business focus (CRM) • Multiple vendors available to choose from

  7. Cloud BI delivery models Public cloud - SaaS • Challenges • Security • No flexibility in choosing vendors for specific parts of your solution • No flexibility in design • Not suitable for custom applications • Usage scenarios • Short lived BI projects • BI systems for small & medium businesses

  8. Cloud BI delivery models Public cloud - PaaS • Key characteristics • Enabling platform available on the cloud • Pay per use for the services • Unlimited on demand scaling • Automated software updates • Flexibility in design • Focus only on the design, development • Low entry costs • Choice of multiple vendors

  9. Cloud BI delivery models Public cloud - PaaS • Challenges • Need to design & develop the application • Security • Usage scenarios • Custom applications • Enterprise BI systems • BI systems for small & medium businesses • Data Mining • Prototyping • Short lived BI projects

  10. Cloud BI delivery models Public cloud - IaaS • Key characteristics • Deploy own solution on the cloud • Pay for the Infrastructure used (Need not procure the hardware) • Unlimited on demand scaling • Complete Flexibility in design • Easier Cloud porting • Best of Breed solutions (can choose best options for – Infrastructure, DB, BI) • Low upfront costs

  11. Cloud BI delivery models Public cloud - IaaS • Challenges • Manageability • Need to design, develop the solution (more development time) • Need to pay upfront software licensing fee • Building horizontal scaling in the application • Usage scenarios • Enterprise BI systems • Data mining • Custom Applications • Prototyping • Short lived BI projects

  12. Cloud BI delivery models Private cloud • Key characteristics • Deploy the solution on the private cloud (own data center) • On demand scaling • Save the Infrastructure cost (by sharing the resources across applications) • Complete Flexibility in design • Complete control on the security

  13. Cloud BI delivery models Private cloud • Challenges • Manageability • Need to design, develop the solution (more development time) • Building horizontal scaling in the application • Higher upfront cost • Usage scenarios • Enterprise BI systems • Data mining • Prototyping • Short lived BI projects

  14. Cloud BI delivery models Hybrid cloud • Key characteristics • Deploy the predictable load on the private cloud (own data center) • Push unpredictable spikes on the public cloud • On demand scaling • Optimize the Infrastructure cost • Complete Flexibility in design • Better control on the security (keep the confidential data in the private cloud)

  15. Cloud BI delivery models Hybrid cloud • Challenges • Manageability • Need to design, develop the solution (more development time) • Building horizontal scaling in the application • Usage scenarios • Enterprise BI systems • Data mining • Prototyping • Short lived BI projects

  16. Current State of the BI market place • SaaS • Good data, Pivotlink, LogiXML, Pentaho • PaaS • Business Objects, SAS, Microsoft Azure, Vertica, Greenplum, Google apps

  17. Current State of the BI market place • IaaS • Infrastructure • AWS, Rackspace, GoGrid • Cloud Management • Elastra, Rightscale • DB/DW • MySQL, Oracle, SQL server, • BI • JasperReports, Pentaho

  18. Conclusion • Cloud BI is set to change the BI landscape • Lower the entry barriers for the organizations • Result in much better adoption of BI systems • Result in new innovations
