Negotiating the Cloud Standards and Advice Jungle
- TYPE: Workshop DATE: Friday, May 16, 2014 TIME: 09:00-12:30 LOCATION: AMMERSEE II
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 Workshop, KuppingerCole´s Senior Analyst and Cloud Governance Expert Mike Small will provide you with a deep insight into cloud standards and guide you to the ones which are relevant and usable for your organization.
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 Mike in this workshop to get a deep insight on existing frameworks, standards, advice and certifications - and their relevance for your cloud initiatives.
