Negotiating the Cloud Standards and Advice Jungle
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, November 05, 2013 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am EST, 7:00am PST
The cloud is a hot topic and most SDOs (Standards Defining Organizations) have at least one initiative in this area. This plethora of initiatives has confronted the users of cloud services as well as CSPs (Cloud Service Providers) with a jungle of frameworks, standards, advice and certifications. In this webinar, KuppingerCole´s Senior Analyst Mike Small will provide a summary of these and some practical advice on their relevance and usability.
Cloud computing is one of three dimensions in which organizations are moving towards an economy based upon the interconnection of IT services ("The Open API Economy"). The success of this economy and hence of cloud computing depends on the availability of clearly defined interfaces; standards have a key role to play in achieving this.
Cloud services are built using a technical architecture that may include both proprietary and standard protocols and interfaces. Many of these standard protocols and interfaces are already available and indeed form the basis of cloud connectivity. However the services themselves have significant proprietary content and this can make the costs of changing provider high.
Join us in this webinar to get a brief overview on existing frameworks, standards, advice and certifications - and their relevance for your cloud initiatives.
