Première partie de cette série de billets : les 10 « ex bonnes pratiques » à abandonner en 2014.
Deuxième partie : les NBP postes de travail.
Troisième partie : la NBP Cloud Privé.
Quatrième partie : les NBP usages.

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.
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.
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.
Entre 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.

More and more file-based and machine generated data is being created every day causing exponential data and content growth, and creating a management nightmare for IT managers. What data centers really need to cope with this growth is a purpose-built tiered archive appliance that enables users to establish a single storage target for all of their applications - an appliance that will intelligently place and move data to and between storage tiers based on user-defined policies. In her session a...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...
