  • Introducing the OMG Cloud Working Group
    Introducing the OMG Cloud Working Group Cloud Standards Customer Council Recorded: Jul 19 2018 55 mins
    This presentation is intended for members of the Cloud Standards Customer Council™ (CSCC™) and will explain the transition of the CSCC to the newly formed OMG® Cloud Working Group in July 2018.

    The Object Management Group® (OMG®) is an IT standards development organization headquartered in Needham, MA, USA with a longstanding history (nearly 30 years!) of supporting software standards and communities of practice. The OMG launched the Cloud Standards Customer Council in 2011 to serve as a source of vendor-neutral guidance on cloud computing best practices, standards and opportunities for standardization. Contributing members of the CSCC published 28 whitepapers and reference architectures to highlight customer requirements and advance the successful adoption of cloud computing.

    The OMG is transitioning this program to a Cloud Working Group. The Cloud Working Group will maintain and update the deliverables published by the CSCC over the course of 2011-2018, and initiate new projects under the OMG Cloud Working Group umbrella.

    This webinar will –
    • introduce the OMG and its structure for developing standards and discussion papers
    • explain the operations of the Cloud Working Group and how to get involved
    • facilitate Q&A with CSCC members
  • Best Practices for Developing and Growing a Cloud-Enabled Workforce
    Best Practices for Developing and Growing a Cloud-Enabled Workforce Cloud Standards Customer Council Recorded: Jun 20 2018 41 mins
    The Cloud Standards Customer Council has published a new whitepaper, Best Practices for Developing and Growing a Cloud-Enabled Workforce.

    In this webinar, the authors will introduce key concepts detailed in the paper and discuss the business context driving demand for new IT skill sets and a cloud-knowledgeable workforce. The discussion will focus on:

    • business reasons for investing in cloud computing and related IT skill sets
    • the new roles, responsibilities and requirements introduced by cloud computing
    • strategies for developing staff and recognizing growth
    • a review of cloud training and certification programs available today
  • Kubernetes and Container Technologies from Cloud Native Computing Foundation
    Kubernetes and Container Technologies from Cloud Native Computing Foundation Dan Kohn, Executive Director, CNCF Recorded: May 29 2018 58 mins
    The Cloud Native Computing Foundation builds sustainable ecosystems and fosters a community around a constellation of projects that orchestrate containers as part of a microservices architecture. CNCF serves as the vendor-neutral home for many of the fastest-growing projects on GitHub, including Kubernetes, Prometheus and Envoy, fostering collaboration between the industry’s top developers, end users, and vendors. In this webinar, Dan Kohn, CNCF Executive Director, will present:

    • A brief overview of CNCF
    • Evolving monolithic applications to microservices on Kubernetes
    • Why Continuous Integration is the most important part of the cloud native architecture
  • Cloud Foundry Roadmap in 2018
    Cloud Foundry Roadmap in 2018 Chip Childers, CTO, Cloud Foundry Recorded: Apr 24 2018 39 mins
    Cloud Foundry from the Linux Foundation is a collection of complementary open source technologies focused on application developers and operators, as well as many projects to support and extend them.

    In this webinar on April 24th, Chip Childers will provide an overview of Cloud Foundry technologies (Application Runtime, Container Runtime and BOSH) discussing use cases and core project updates. He will discuss the technical benefits of the platform, focus areas for 2018, and major highlights from the Cloud Foundry Summit, April 18-20 in Boston, MA.
  • Migrating Applications to Public Cloud Services: Roadmap for Success V2.0
    Migrating Applications to Public Cloud Services: Roadmap for Success V2.0 Cloud Standards Customer Council Recorded: Mar 28 2018 58 mins
    As organizations consider migrating applications to the cloud, a business plan and detailed migration plan is critical to success. Version 2.0 covers the key considerations of cloud migration and takes into account the increasing diversity of approaches such as the use of containers, virtual machines and serverless functions, as well as the increasing use of hybrid cloud solutions. In addition, mitigating concerns related to security, privacy and data residency is a major focus of the update.

    In this webinar, authors of the paper will discuss each of the six steps outlined in the migration roadmap:

    1.Assess your applications and workloads
    2.Build a business case
    3.Develop a technical approach
    4.Adopt a flexible integration model
    5.Address compliance, security, privacy and data residency requirements
    6.Manage the migration
  • Where’s My Data? Managing the Data Residency Challenge
    Where’s My Data? Managing the Data Residency Challenge Claude Baudoin, owner, cébé IT & Knowledge Management and Geoff Rayner, CEO, Data Advantage Group Recorded: Feb 27 2018 62 mins
    Introducing the OMG’s Data Residency Maturity Model

    With the rise of managed IT services and cloud computing, sensitive data is regularly moved across countries and jurisdictions, which can be in direct conflict with various international, national or local regulations dictating where certain types of data can be stored (e.g., the European Union’ General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR). Data residency is also a consideration of data owners responsible for protecting and securing data from unintended access.

    The Object Management Group® (OMG®), a technology standards consortium, launched a working group in 2015 to address the challenges of data residency and define a standards roadmap to help stakeholders manage the location of their data and metadata.

    Given the complexity of the issue, a stepwise improvement plan is necessary. This webinar will introduce a new Data Residency Maturity Model (DRMM) proposed in December 2017. Similar to the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) invented in 1990 at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), the DRMM contains five maturity levels aimed at helping an organization improve their practices and governance of data residency. The OMG seeks feedback on the DRMM and calls on all interested parties to contribute to this work.
  • Hyperledger: Market, Technology & Community Update
    Hyperledger: Market, Technology & Community Update Cloud Standards Customer Council Recorded: Feb 15 2018 54 mins
    Speakers:
    Dan O’Prey, Chair of Hyperledger Marketing Committee and CMO at Digital Asset
    Tracy Kuhrt, Community Architect, Hyperledger

    Hyperledger is an umbrella open source project started in December 2015 by the Linux Foundation to support the collaborative development of blockchain-based distributed ledgers across industries. A blockchain is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, that are linked and secured using cryptography. Transactions between two parties are recorded efficiently and in a verifiable and permanent way.

    In this webinar, Dan O’Prey and Tracy Kuhrt will present an update on the blockchain market, industry trends, and new Hyperledger projects. They will discuss the technical items delivered over the last 6 months and focus areas for Hyperledger in 2018.
  • Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide v2.0
    Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide v2.0 Cloud Standards Customer Council Recorded: Jan 24 2018 53 mins
    Version 2.0 of Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide is now available.

    This paper from the Cloud Standards Customer Council provides a clear definition of interoperability and portability and how these concepts relate to different components in the architecture of cloud computing, each of which needs to be considered in its own right. Version 2.0 reflects the new ISO/IEC 19941 Cloud Computing Interoperability and Portability standard and its facet models of interoperability, data portability, and application portability.

    In this webinar, authors of the paper will discuss how to select and provision cloud services indicating how interoperability and portability affect the cost, security and risk involved.
