THINK Cloud Vendors is a one day conference on Tuesday 9th December 2014, that examines the opportunities on offer to those participating in the G-Cloud framework, highlighting the challenges faced and promoting effective strategies for the supplier community when selling cloud services to the Public Sector. Delegates will benefit from the actual experiences of peer organisations that already successfully use the G-Cloud framework; they will hear from public sector buyers about what they look for in potential
Cloud Computing promises to deliver computational resources on demand as services that are commoditised and delivered as in traditional utilities such as electricity, gas, water and telephony. High Utility with Cloud services can already be achieved for compute, storage and communication resources but also for hosted software and data.
This conference uniquely aims to untangle the legal uncertainties which are generated by an amalgam of regulations in the EU and internationally particularly in terms of privacy. The programme will assess challenges in security, standardization, accountability and responsibility for enterprises and will assess their actual implications.
The European Committee for Interoperable Systems invites you to its annual symposium, this year presenting its white paper on the benefits of standards and interoperability among cloud providers, which is intended to help users avoid being locked into a single vendor.
The paper looks at the way the architecture of the cloud evolved and how governments and enterprises can assess to what degree proprietary approaches are used, which can make it difficult or expensive to move to a competitor.
