Negotiating the Cloud Standards and Advice Jungle
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.
Internet of Everything and Big Data: Benefits and how to Manage Risk
The vision for the Internet of Things (IoT) makes bold promises for the individual as well as business. The vision is for an Internet of Everything and Everyone and is intimately related to the ability to manage and process vast amounts of data. However the realization of this vision is based on existing systems and infrastructure which contain known weaknesses. This workshop will describe the vision for the Internet of Everything and Everyone and the benefits that this could bring. It will cover the security and privacy risks and how these risks are balanced by the rewards.
