The responsibility for Governance, Risk and Compliance
cannot be transferred away when decisions are made to migrate
to Cloud technology models.
As the delegation of services to
into the Cloud increases, the responsibility of the decision
makers to maintain comprehensive Service Level Agreements (SLAs)
with their providers also increases.
Bandwidth management is critical as functional dependence upon network response for delivering
web based applications and data increases. Connections that had been good enough for downloading and
reading email may prove painfully inadequate for business process depending upon the Cloud.
Information Systems Designs
for the Cloud
Driving forces have changed and continue
to change at an ever increasing rate the manner in which Information
Technologies are licensed and distributed. Platform, Infrastructure,
Software, Support, and Security may each be contracted as a
service provided over an Internet connection.
Small businesses that self manage their Information Systems
and their Service Level Agreements, (SLAs), are increasingly
at risk. Advanced Persistant Threats, (APTs), are left undetected
on their systems, until an obvious error brings attention to
Advanced Persistent Threats"
Corporations and government entities benefit from centralizing their information technology resources and
A new model is presented for the Cloud Based Network Operations Center, a clearinghouse providing network
confidentiality and integrity for its subscibers by managing Cloud based functional vlans between the businesses.
The changing demands for systems access, economics, and ecological
impacts, have redefined the implementation models of Information
Technologies for businesses.
Pay for Use models of Cloud provisioning hold economies of
scale opportunities as well as opportunities to broaden the
scope a business participates in.
Teleconferencing, remote backup sites, and advanced software
capabilities become within the reach of even micro-businesses.
Information architecture is comprised of the structural design
of data, how it is stored, retrieved, distributed, displayed,
controlled, and how it is protected. The definition of concentric
is “having a common center.” (The American Heritage® Dictionary
of the English Language, 2012) The TCP/IP protocol has become
the standard, multi-purpose, communication language. Concentric
Systems design, engineering, and administration, involves the
centralized access and control of all available TCP/IP systems
