Les dix NBP, Nouvelles Bonnes Pratiques

Ce graphique illustre le message essentiel de ces NBP : 

Des navigateurs, passerelles entre des objets d’accès mobiles et variés, des infrastructures serveurs dans des clouds publics et des centaines d’applications SaaS, Software as a Service.

Navigateur centre du SI moderne

NBP 1 : A partir de 2014, toute application nouvelle déployée dans l’entreprise devra être accessible par un navigateur moderne.

NBP 2 : les clients internes de l’entreprise peuvent choisir le poste de travail qui leur convient. 

NBP 3 : les outils universels de collaboration et de communication sont des applications Cloud.

NBP 4 : Le Cloud Privé sera à jamais banni de ma stratégie informatique.

NBP 5 : L’entreprise sélectionne en priorité des composants applicatifs SaaS, « best of breed ».

NBP 6 : les clients internes de l’entreprise peuvent choisir leurs applications dans un catalogue très riche proposé par la DSI.

NBP 7 : L’entreprise construit un Système d’Information performant en agrégeant de nombreux composants.

NBP 8 : L’entreprise propose une place de marché interne de WebApps, sur le modèle des stores du Web (Apple Store, Google Play...).

NBP 9 : L’offre industrielle de solutions a priorité sur la demande.

NBP 10 : L’entreprise définit sa vision stratégique informatique à long terme et la met en œuvre par des plans d’action à court terme.


Mesurez votre niveau de maturité par rapport à ces dix NBP

Dans le premier de ces textes, je vous proposais un test rapide permettant de mesurer le niveau d’obsolescence de votre Système d’information.

Prepared-not-scaredJe vous en propose un autre, pour mesurer maintenant le niveau de préparation de votre Système d’Information pour affronter les défis de cette décennie.

Il vous suffit de mesurer, honnêtement, combien de ces dix nouvelles NBP sont une réalité dans votre organisation :

  • Zéro : pas d’affolement, vous n’êtes pas les seuls. Fixez-vous un objectif raisonnable pour la fin de l’année 2014 : avoir mis en pratique au moins deux NBP.
  • D’une à trois NBP : bravo, vous êtes sur la bonne voie ! Vous faites partie des entreprises innovantes et pouvez rester dans le peloton de tête en rajoutant deux nouvelles NBP tous les ans. 
  • De quatre à six NBP : vous obtenez une médaille olympique pour avoir pris rapidement le chemin de la performance !
  • Plus de sept NBP : contactez-moi et j’écrirai un billet spécial pour illustrer ce qu’il est possible de faire, aujourd’hui.


Cap 2021+

20 cloudEntre 1990 et 2010, l’immense majorité des organisations ont suivi les mêmes bonnes pratiques qui sont, maintenant, devenues des «ex bonnes pratiques». 20 ans de stabilité dans un monde aussi dynamique que celui des Systèmes d’Information, c’est un record qui sera difficile à battre !

Les NBP, nouvelles bonnes pratiques que je vous propose aujourd’hui auront très certainement une durée de vie plus courte !

Je vous donne rendez-vous en 2021, pour une nouvelle série de billets sur le thème :

10 « ex bonnes pratiques » des années 2010 - 2020 à abandonner et... 10 bonnes résolutions pour 2022.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
