Report from Gartner IT Infrastructure & Operations Management Summit 2013

In June 2013 SoftElegance attended Gartner IT Infrastructure & Operations Management Summit

Gartner.com: “Gartner IT Infrastructure & Operations Management Summit 2013 will help I&O leaders apply authoritative thinking, leading-edge strategies and tactical best practices to their enterprise I&O planning and initiatives.”

We’re really glad and satisfied attending Gartner’s event. We heard a lot, new and proven concepts, future and predictions. One of the first keynotes was about what does the future hold for Infrastructure and Operations?

The main ideas are that it will be required to care about BYOD and mobile apps, that I&O will loose control over the architecture because of SaaS applications, that business unit managers will spend more on IT, more and more critical business applications will be sources via the cloud.

Patrick Debois said: “Some people get stuck on the word ‘DevOps’, thinking that it’s just about development and operations working together…”. It was high priority for us to attend few sessions about DevOps, for example “How Do You Know If You’re Really Doing DevOps?” as for custom software development company.

Many, many, many more interested we’ve heard, for example, did you know that in the next five years the average enterprise will see data capacities grow more than 800%? What does it mean for developers? Or the internet of things is coming, and IP address will be everywhere, and IT should support it. And many, many, many more interesting

The main topics and challenges are the same: BYOD, Big Data, Cloud Computing, and SaaS.
It was great and useful time. Thanks to all participants and attendees.

TOP IT U.K. outsourcing stories of 2012

£38.7bn UK’s total production came from IT outsourcing

Research into the UK outsourcing sector found that 7.4% of the UK’s total production came from outsourcing, and about a third of that – some £38.7bn – was IT outsourcing. It is a sector that adapts to market conditions, reshaping itself to give customers what they want.

The past year has seen the public sector feature heavily in outsourcing news. The government wants to cut costs, so it has been trying outsourcing models. At the same time, it is putting pressure on its suppliers to do more.

Based on ComputerWeekly’s “Top 10 IT outsourcing stories of 2012

We’ll cut some stories from the original article and the three most interesting are:

General Motors insourcing: One off?

One of the big stories recently concerning outsourcing IT is one about doing the opposite. GM is in the process of insourcing its currently heavily outsourced IT. GM originally bought EDS as its internal IT department before spinning it out as a separate company. It continued to buy services from EDS. Then EDS was acquired by HP, and now, a few years down the line, GM is bringing almost everything in-house.

750,000 more jobs will be offshored by 2016

Businesses in Europe and the US will transfer about 750,000 jobs, including IT, to lower-cost locations over the next four years, taking the total number of jobs offshored to 2.3 million by 2016. But offshoring could stop in the next decade when there are no more roles to go, according to research from The Hackett Group, which looked at 4,700 businesses with annual revenue of more than $1bn.

UK IT outsourcing jobs and sales drop, but sector outperforms others

The number of UK workers employed in the IT outsourcing sector has dropped, as has its total contribution to the UK economy, according to research by Oxford Economics. Research into the UK outsourcing sector in 2010 found that total outsourcing was worth just under £199bn in total sales – 7.4% of the UK’s total production. IT and data-related services was the biggest sub-sector of outsourcing, contributing £38.7bn of the total for the outsourcing sector.

SoftElegance seminar and internal discussion: “UML distilled and software for visual modelling”

Best Practices to the Standard Object Modeling Language

Today we had the next internal discussion “UML distilled and software for visual modelling“. It starts from the seminar and very brief discussion of the Unified Modeling Language. Then we discussed who and how used UML in real production projects, discussed the best practices, and which diagrams should be really helpful.

Starts from Visual Studio 2010 integrated tools for visual modelling looks rather helpful, it also can be mapped to the source code, and vice versa to visual diagrams.

Also we found UML Distilled: A Brief Guide to the Standard Object Modeling Language rather good handbook for UML.
