900K HEFCE investmentAnchor tenants: Crick, KCL, LSE, QMUL, Sanger, UCLwww.jisc.ac.uk/shared-data-centre 20/01/15UCISA Network Futures - The Network in 20309

9Trends and signifiersAmazon cloud portal:Monthly invoicing - credit cards are no longer required for paymentItemized billing - consolidated across users/departmentsBilling in GBP, not dollarsSetting of budget limits for individual user accounts or departmentsThe retrieval of service usage information within own areas of responsibilityVolume-discounts through aggregation across multiple educational institutions20/01/15UCISA Network Futures - The Network in 203010

www.ja.net/amazon10Trends and signifiersMoonshot:Single, unifying technology that enables you to effectively manage and control access to a wide range of web and non-web services and applications.These include cloud infrastructures, High Performance Computing, Grid Computing and commonly deployed services such as email, file store, remote access and instant messaging

11Trends and signifiersReach:4M funding from BIS to work towards a Janet which is "open and accessible" to industryProvides industry access to university e-infrastructure facilities to facilitate further investment in science, engineering and technology with the active participation of business and industryModelled on Innovate UK competition process20/01/15UCISA Network Futures - The Network in 203012

www.ja.net/janet-reach12Trends and signifiersSafe share:Encrypted VPN infrastructure between organisationsProviding enhanced confidentiality and integrity per ISO27001Requirement to move electronic health data securely and support research collaborationWorking with biomedical researchers at Farr Institute, MRC Medical Bioinformatics initiative, ESRC Administrative Data Centres20/01/15UCISA Network Futures - The Network in 203013

IT as Innovation in TechnologyIT == Innovation in TechnologyConventional wisdom: IT as a cost centreIs that how Tesco and Amazon see it?Can you be replaced with a robot?Or an outsourcerer / shared service / SaaS / What do (or can) you do that gives yourinstitution a unique advantage?May not be what you are doing now Are we actually entering a new golden age?Discuss!20/01/15UCISA Network Futures - The Network in 203025
