Enterprises can gain business benefit from emerging digital computing and communications technologies. Their business departments want to experiment with new solutions and to develop and deploy them rapidly. They often want to use multiple technologies in combination. But they are faced with a mass of product-specific and technology-specific standards that make it hard to use, and harder still to integrate, different technologies.
Open Platform 3.0 is a standard for platforms. It applies to platforms that give users access to digital technologies. It is being developed by The Open Group. The presentation will explain why Open Platform 3.0 is needed, how it is developing, and how it will impact cloud networks.
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.Read more >
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

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 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.

Enterprise Storage moving toward the cloud requires an interoperable interface foundation to avoid vendor lock-in and provide choice. This tutorial will provide an overview of the features of a Enterprise cloud storage standard and explain how interoperability between clouds is achieved.
What should you be requiring from your cloud vendors?
How can you expect standards to roll out in implementations?
How this cloud storage standard can achieve interoperability and what this interoperability means to you.
How you can use the cloud storage standard both internally for private clouds as well as for public clouds.
This session will look at the needs of customers for interoperable virtualization management standards. Virtualization which is an important cloud computing enabling technology, is driving customer requirements for management standards to improve their agility while reducing their TCO. The goal of virtualization management standards is to improve IT consumer agility and define a set of architectural semantics that unify the interoperable management of workloads and resources between enterprises of all sizes and cloud computing infrastructures.Read more >
