Vancouver and Edmonton will offer a 1 day intense Cloud Computing workshops that highlights the international standard frameworks from NIST and the ITU-T. The key best practices and models will be clarified for roles, planning, governance and service level agreements. Sponsorship opportunities still exist. Call 613-823-7573 for more details.
The “IFPUG Guide to IT and Software Measurement” now available from Amazon, where I wrote the Cloud Computing Measurement chapter. http://t.co/54GPEkWG Scope and governance remains key in 2012
We worked very hard in 2012 on this document and the guide will be presented May 16 at 11AM ET. I was responsible for the metrics, roles and resources sections. http://www.cloudstandardscustomercouncil.org/events.htm
I will be participating as one of the experts and leads in the IBM Cloud Chat. See: http://ibm.co/JrHJ4S It should be fun, I have already been warned to expect the tough questions.
Good news, we are starting to get actual results from actual deployment experience of PaaS and SaaS. The cost savings and time-to-market advantages can be tremendous from development, enhancements and maintenance. It all depends upon specific deployments, service models and pricing models. Savings of over 90% from traditional applications have been realized. Modeling the time-to-market and schedule compression advantages of cloud solutions essentially makes the cloud SaaS/ PaaS options as the only logical choice.
ITU-T Cloud Joint Collaboration Activity meet and I’ll be helping coordinate. NIST is meeting in Washington June 5-7 and we will provide updates to the various cloud guidelines (Metrics, Roles, SLAs, Federated Cloud and Security). July 17 as part of the TM Forum Team Action Week we are bringing together several Cloud SDOs, where I’ll be representing several SDOs.
