CSA & ICS 2011 – International Roadmapping Session: Responses From Standards Bodies
Moving forward from the focus on Roadmapping, this Session looks towards the needs of policy-makers and CIOs in addressing the core issues of the Symposium, namely, standards and best practices for interoperability and trust in the Cloud. Representatives of selected standards bodies will respond to the challenges outlined in the road maps and provide further insight into their activities, as well as plans for standards in support of Cloud based services.
Topics to be covered:
- How selected Standards bodies are addressing the needs for best practices or draft guidelines, rather than actual standards
- The types of standards architecture that seem most relevant and useful relating to Cloud issues
- How might new partnerships between Standards bodies [de jure, fora and consortia] develop to meet the needs identified by the Siena and similar initiatives
- And how the industry perceives its needs.
