    • Cloud Storage: Solving Interoperability Challenges
      Cloud Storage: Solving Interoperability Challenges Udayan Singh, Head, Tata Consultancy, Mark Carlson, Cloud Storage Co-Chair, Cloud Storage TWG Co-Chair Recorded: Jul 19 2016 5:00 pm UTC 34 mins
    • Cloud storage has transformed the storage industry, however interoperability challenges that were overlooked during the initial stages of growth are now emerging as front and center issues. Join this Webcast to learn the major challenges that businesses leveraging services from multiple cloud providers or moving from one cloud provider to another face.
      The SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface standard (CDMI) addresses these challenges by offering data interoperability between clouds. SNIA and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have partnered to create a SNIA CDMI Conformance Test Program to help cloud storage providers achieve CDMI conformance.
      As interoperability becomes critical, end user companies should include the CDMI standard in their RFPs and demand conformance to CDMI from vendors.
      Join us on July 19th to learn:
      •Critical challenges that the cloud storage industry is facing
      •Issues in a multi-cloud provider environment
      •Addressing cloud storage interoperability challenges
      •How the CDMI standard works
      •Benefits of CDMI conformance testing
      •Benefits for end user companies

    • The Disconnect Between Interoperability and Conformance Testing
      The Disconnect Between Interoperability and Conformance Testing Rik Drummond, CEO of Drummond Group Inc., The Trusted Interoperability Test Lab Recorded: Oct 27 2009 4:00 pm UTC 44 mins
    • There is a significant disconnect between the meaning of the words conformance and interoperability as perceived from a traditional technical mindset and the reality of end-users existing in multiple domains. Too often, it is presumed if one version of a product performs a single conformance or interoperability test that it will satisfy most or nearly all of the interoperability needs of the user community. However, based on the data we have collected through running large numbers of interoperability and conformance tests, we can demonstrate that just a very small percentage of test case error rate (less than 0.5%) among the product test group results in a high number of deployment interoperability failures. This is due to a misunderstanding of the relational and non-transitive aspect of interoperability itself and also a failure to appreciate product life cycle issue (i.e. multiple versions of a single product) with deployment across multiple user domains. This webcast will expand on these concepts as well as speak on a recent mathematic probability paper which reveals the likelihood of conformance through interoperability testing (and vice versa), how it is often far lower than expected and how testing programs can successfully address this.

    • Part 1:Dell and NHS England  - Interoperability and Business Intelligence
      Part 1:Dell and NHS England - Interoperability and Business Intelligence Inderjit Singh, Head of Enterprise Architecture, NHS England , Jon Marsh, Sales Director, Dell Healthcare Recorded: Nov 25 2015 2:00 pm UTC 64 mins
    • Learn how to deliver integrated health and social care with big data and interoperability.

      The Caldicott 2 report highlighted the practical difficulties that surround the sharing of service user data, especially when it’s not being used for direct care. Yet you still need to utilise big data and data sharing to comply with government policies aimed at providing better care.
      Join us for this half-day executive briefing where experts from NHS England,Dell Healthcare will provide practical insights on how to enable interoperability and the use of business intelligence to better serve your communities.

      We’ll show you how your healthcare data can help gain actionable insights, avoid unseen risks and discover missed opportunities using real-world examples.

      Get insights on how to:
      •Integrate data from different sources (such as the local authority and NHS commissioners)
      •Create healthier communities, improve outcomes and lower healthcare costs through the innovative use of data analysis to predict and prevent ill-health
      •Improve the patient engagement experience through seamless
      •Ensure a more timely exchange of data to meet regulatory
      •Create a cloud-based repository for data that can be accessed
      from multiple locations and via different applications

    • The State of Cloud Standards in 2014: Interoperability, Portability and Security
      The State of Cloud Standards in 2014: Interoperability, Portability and Security Steve Woodward, cCc; Dave Casper, ODCA; Alex McDonald, SNIA; Winston Bumpus, DMTF; Claude Baudoin, CSCC Recorded: Oct 15 2014 4:00 pm UTC 57 mins
    • The cloud computing market continues to grow as rapidly as ever and yet, only a small portion of the true value of cloud has been realized.

      Interoperability, portability and security are some of the biggest roadblocks slowing down the advancement of the cloud. The ability to port data, applications and share cloud services across multiple environments, while ensuring data protection and transparency is on top of every organization’s wish list today. A standardized set of principles can assist these organizations in utilizing the offerings of the cloud to the fullest.

      In this roundtable discussion, hear about the current state of cloud standards, the latest developments and how these changes affect your organization and the industry as a whole.

    • Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide
      Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide John Meegan and Mike Edwards, Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC) Recorded: Nov 15 2016 4:00 pm UTC 55 mins
    • The topics of interoperability and portability are significant considerations in relation to the use of cloud services, but there is confusion and misunderstanding of exactly what this entails.

      Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide provides a clear definition of interoperability and portability and how these relate to various aspects of cloud computing and to cloud services.

      This webinar will describe interoperability and portability in terms of a set of common cloud computing scenarios. This approach assists in demonstrating that both interoperability and portability have multiple aspects and relate to a number of different components in the architecture of cloud computing, each of which needs to be considered in its own right. The aim is to give both cloud service customers and cloud service providers guidance in the provision and selection of cloud services indicating how interoperability and portability affect the cost, security and risk involved.
