A Step by Step Guide to the Final Upgrade From Agile to Cloud PLM

Oracle PLM Cloud has become the solution for today with its ability to provide a platform to rapidly innovate, develop and commercialize quality products.

How Does Cloud PLM Differ from On-premise Solutions?

While on-premise Agile PLM allows for product development, processes, and development of product records and more; these are essential features of any PLM. Moving to the Cloud brings you a step ahead in the product conception, with the following advantages:

  • The cloud allows for the identification of individual tasks related to each status of the workflow and the overall change.
  • The cloud has powerful security that enables roles and privileges control to directly. Agile PLM on the other hand has no team security.
  • Cloud provides Page Composer that allows complete customization of the page layout while Agile does not.
  • Sub-classes are of unlimited levels in the cloud, and only of three levels in Agile: base class, class, and subclass.

Multi-cloud Spending: 8 Tips To Lower Cost

A multi-cloud approach is nothing but leveraging two or more cloud platforms for meeting the various business requirements of an enterprise. The multi-cloud IT environment incorporates different clouds from multiple vendors and negates the dependence on a single public cloud service provider. Thus enterprises can choose specific services from multiple public clouds and reap the benefits of each.

Given its affordability and agility, most enterprises opt for a multi-cloud approach in cloud computing now. A 2018 survey on the public cloud services market points out that 81% of the respondents use services from two or more providers. Subsequently, the cloud computing services market has reported incredible growth in recent times. The worldwide public cloud services market is all set to reach $500 billion in the next four years, according to IDC.

By choosing multi-cloud solutions strategically, enterprises can optimize the benefits of cloud computing and aim for some key competitive advantages. They can avoid the lengthy and cumbersome processes involved in buying, installing and testing high-priced systems. The IaaS and PaaS solutions have become a windfall for the enterprise’s budget as it does not incur huge up-front capital expenditure.

However, cost optimization is still a challenge while facilitating a multi-cloud environment and a large number of enterprises end up overpaying with or without realizing it. The below-mentioned tips would help you ensure the money is spent wisely on cloud computing services.

  • Deactivate underused or unattached resources

Most organizations tend to get wrong with simple things which turn out to be the root cause for needless spending and resource wastage. The first step to cost optimization in your cloud strategy is to identify underutilized resources that you have been paying for.

Enterprises often continue to pay for resources that have been purchased earlier but are no longer useful. Identifying such unused and unattached resources and deactivating it on a regular basis brings you one step closer to cost optimization. If needed, you can deploy automated cloud management tools that are largely helpful in providing the analytics needed to optimize the cloud spending and cut costs on an ongoing basis.

  • Figure out idle instances

Another key cost optimization strategy is to identify the idle computing instances and consolidate them into fewer instances. An idle computing instance may require a CPU utilization level of 1-5%, but you may be billed by the service provider for 100% for the same instance.

Every enterprise will have such non-production instances that constitute unnecessary storage space and lead to overpaying. Re-evaluating your resource allocations regularly and removing unnecessary storage may help you save money significantly. Resource allocation is not only a matter of CPU and memory but also it is linked to the storage, network, and various other factors.

  • Deploy monitoring mechanisms

The key to efficient cost reduction in cloud computing technology lies in proactive monitoring. A comprehensive view of the cloud usage helps enterprises to monitor and minimize unnecessary spending. You can make use of various mechanisms for monitoring computing demand.

For instance, you can use a heatmap to understand the highs and lows in computing visually. This heat map indicates the start and stop times which in turn lead to reduced costs. You can also deploy automated tools that help organizations to schedule instances to start and stop. By following a heatmap, you can understand whether it is safe to shut down servers on holidays or weekends.

Kick-Off Your Agile Team With A Working Agreement Workshop

The canvas, created by Avi Schneier and the Scrum Inc team [1], encourages the team to ask questions that go to the heart of team dynamics, from the norms and guidelines they agree to abide by, to the skills they bring to the table and the skills they want to learn from each other, to how they celebrate success and learn from failure. In this article, I will discuss how I adapted Avi’s original canvas to the needs of the teams I was coaching, elaborate on the different elements of a working agreement, and share with you a step-by-step guide to facilitating collaborative working agreement development workshops.

The 8 Canvas Blocks In a Glance:

Team Name and Motto:

Having a team name that all team members can identify with is one aspect of establishing the team’s unique identity. A Team name should be created (and agreed on) by the team on their own. There are many anecdotal accounts[2] about how coming together under a common team name helps the team run much more smoothly and efficiently (Plus, it’s fun to come up with a great team name together!) In a recent working agreement canvas workshop I facilitated, and since there were so many Harry Potter fans in the group, they chose to be called _Team Slytherin. _You should’ve heard the laughs as they attempted to come up with that name!

The Motto is the team’s catch-phrase. Some teams opt for something that captures in a few words what they consider the essence of good teamwork, while others prefer something more tongue-in-cheek. I love to observe the dynamic of a team and how they learn more about each other’s personalities as they try to come up with a motto.

Identifying Non-Functional Requirements (NFR) As Part of Your Agile Project Inception

NFRs:

In addition to the customer value-adding Epics and User stories you typically brainstorm in story writing workshops, the team needs to consider & plan for how to meet critical non-functional requirements that are also essential to the success of the product. These include things like performance, security, reliability, etc. To truly differentiate your product from the competition, think about NFRs not merely as compliance must-haves, but as distinguishing factors and essential contributors to the value proposition of the product. A big part of why our product is superior to the competition could be because it is more secure, more reliable, faster, etc.

NFRs include things like performance, flexibility, usability, maintainability, audit, logging, data migration, availability, reliability, recoverability, traffic/user volume, security, globalization/localization, etc.

In practice, we need to look at each of these non-functional requirements and answer 3 broad questions:

  • What is our _Definition of Success _for this NFR? Exploring this question is critical in order to determine how much time and effort we need to dedicate to this NFR.

Let us take usability as an example: here is an excerpt of the Definition of Success for the Usability NFR from a team I coached recently:

  1. the system should be accessible remotely via a virtual desktop
  2. users should be able to customize the user interface
  3. users should be able to use keyboard shortcuts to access frequently used features
  4. response time for the system should be <n seconds
  5. user should be able to have multiple instances of the system open at the same time
  6. the system should have a usability score on the System Usability Scale (SUS) of 68 or higher.

What are the benefits of cloud migration? Reasons you should migrate

The moving of applications, databases and other business elements from the local server to the cloud server called cloud migration. This article will deal with migration techniques, requirement and the benefits of cloud migration.

In simple terms, moving from local to the public cloud server is called cloud migration. Gartner says 17.5% revenue growth as promised in cloud migration and also has a forecast for 2022 as shown in the following image.
