For cloud computing, interoperability and portability related challenges are likely to intensify and become more difficult to manage as systems grow more complex and interconnected, especially with the use of multiple cloud services as part of a system. In this webinar, the Cloud Standards Customer Council will receive an update on a new ISO Cloud Computing Interoperability and Portability specification - ISO/IEC 19941. This new ISO standard specifies cloud computing interoperability and portability types and the relationship and interactions between these two cross-cutting aspects of cloud computing. It also provides a model to enable a clear description of interoperability and portability when building and using systems based on cloud computing.
Attending this webinar is beneficial for all parties involved in cloud computing – cloud service customers, cloud service providers, and cloud service partners – to gain a common understanding of interoperability and portability for their specific needs.
This webinar introduces the CSCC’s deliverable, Cloud Security Standards: What to Expect and What to Negotiate, which was updated in August to highlight the latest developments in cloud security standards. The speakers will provide an overview of the standards, frameworks, and certifications that exist for securing cloud computing environments. This information should help cloud customers evaluate the security support of cloud service providers.Read more >

This presentation will help cloud customers understand and distinguish between the different types of security standards that exist and assess the security standards support of their cloud service providers.Read more >
In this talk, Ram will provide a unified framework for Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Smart Networked Systems and Societies, and then discuss the role of ontologies for interoperability.
The Internet, which has spanned several networks in a wide variety of domains, is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives. These networks are currently being extended to have significant sensing capabilities, with the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). With additional control, we are entering the era of Cyber-physical Systems (CPS). In the near future, the networks will go beyond physically linked computers to include multimodal-information from biological, cognitive, semantic, and social networks.
This paradigm shift will involve symbiotic networks of people (social networks), smart devices, and smartphones or mobile personal computing and communication devices that will form smart net-centric systems and societies (SNSS) or Internet of Everything. These devices – and the network -- will be constantly sensing, monitoring, interpreting, and controlling the environment.
A key technical challenge for realizing SNSS/IoE is that the network consists of things (both devices & humans) which are heterogeneous, yet need to be interoperable. In other words, devices and people need to interoperate in a seamless manner. This requires the development of standard terminologies (or ontologies) which capture the meaning and relations of objects and events. Creating and testing such terminologies will aid in effective recognition and reaction in a network-centric situation awareness environment.
Before joining the Software and Systems Division (his current position), Ram was the leader of the Design and Process group in the Manufacturing Systems Integration Division, Manufacturing Engineering Lab, where he conducted research on standards for interoperability of computer-aided design systems.
As data is increasingly accessed and shared across geographic boundaries, a growing web of conflicting laws and regulations dictate where data can be transferred, stored, and shared, and how it is protected. The Object Management Group® (OMG®) and the Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC) recently completed a significant effort to analyze and document the challenges posed by data residency.
Data residency issues result from the storage and movement of data and metadata across geographies and jurisdictions. Attend this webinar to learn more about data residency:
•How it may impact users and providers of IT services (including but not limited to the cloud)
•The complex web of laws and regulations that govern this area
•The relevant aspects – and limitations -- of current standards and potential areas of improvement
•How to contribute to future work
Engine generators are a mission-critical component for data centers, ensuring resilience, stability, and business continuity. In August 2012 the Tier Standard: Topology was updated, altering the way Uptime Institute adjudicates the engine generator suitability and capacity for Tier Certification. This change allowed manufacturers and designers a bit more flexibility than the ISO 8528-1 standard does by definition. Previously the Tier Certification capacities were tied only to the ISO standard. To clear up any confusion between the old and new standards, in this webinar we explain the current criteria and variables for engine generator ratings, outline the parameters for each Tier certification level, and discuss how to apply these standards to your facility and operations.Read more >
With the emergence of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) many are trying to understand how their organization can step up to the new world of connected things that can cause harm, lead to safety issues, and could serve for decades. Join this session as we explore the driving concepts behind creating a safe, secure, and reliable IIoT system and look at how OMG standards play their role in the new IIoT marketplace and IIoT ecosystems as we evolve our IT & OT cultures into the IIoT culture. Topics discussed include:
* Safe, Reliable, and Secure - how to tell?
* Sourcing and integrating trustworthy components
* Standards and evidence-based value chains in IIoT ecosystems
This webinar demonstrates the practical realization of standards-based executable modeling in UML, showing its importance for moving forward in a number of, perhaps, unexpected areas, including agile development methods, multi-core programming and model-based system engineering. Today’s Executable UML is based on the OMG’s Foundational UML (fUML) standard, for executable object-oriented and activity modeling, and the Action Language for fUML (Alf) standard, which defines a corresponding textual representation. But this is only the beginning. Additional Executable UML standards are being built on this foundation, including recent ones for composite structure and state machines. Come learn about the growing suite of OMG Executable UML specifications, watch these standards in action and discover the promise they hold for the future.Read more >
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
This webinar addresses the drivers behind the ever-growng data center market and the standards that support that growth.
Attendees will earn one BICSI Continuing Education Credit.
The growing popularity of object-based storage has resulted in the development of Ethernet-connected storage devices, herein referred to as IP-Based Drives and subsystems supporting object interfaces and in some cases the ability to run localized applications.
Typical scale-out storage nodes consist of relatively inexpensive enclosures with IP network connectivity, CPU, Memory and Direct Attached Storage (DAS). While inexpensive to deploy, these solutions become harder to manage over time.
To ease management of these drives, SNIA has approved the release of the IP-Based Drive Management Specification. In this webcast, you’ll hear from authors of the specification who’ll discuss:
• Major Components of the IP Based Drive Management Standard
• How the standard leverages the DMTF Redfish management standard to manage Kinetic and other IP-Based Drives
• Providing a standard management interface for drives that are part of JBOD or JBOF enclosures
This standard allows drive management to scale to datacenters and beyond, enabling automation and Software Defined Datacenters.

Mass spectrometry-based protein assays impart increased specificity and more rapid development times versus traditional methods, such as ELISA. Coupled with immunoaffinity enrichment, LC-MS/MS is becoming a powerful tool for the quantitation of proteins in plasma. Such methods typically rely on synthetic stable isotope labeled (SIL) peptide internal standards to correct for instrumental variability. For more accurate protein quantitation by LC-MS/MS, experimental variations throughout the entire sample preparation workflow, including protein fractionation, immunoaffinity enrichment, and enzymatic digestion, must be accounted for. An ideal way of improving assay reproducibility is to add a full-length stable isotope labeled recombinant protein, that is equivalent to the native target protein, to the sample at the initial stage of the assay workflow. We have developed a set of stable-isotope-labeled monoclonal antibodies expressed in CHO cells as well as SIL versions of several clinically-relevant human proteins expressed in E. coli, such as IGF1, and in mammalian HEK293 cells, such as Thyroglobulin (manufactured as a Certified Reference Material). We will present data to demonstrate that the use of full-length SIL proteins and antibodies as internal standards allows for more accurate and rapid quantitation of biotherapeutic antibodies and clinically-relevant human protein biomarkers in plasma by LC-MS/MS.Read more >

Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) are an important subset of IoT applications. They are made possible by sharing multimodal transport information across data owners, application developers, service providers and end-users to deliver innovative services.
By exposing historically closed data assets to different stakeholders, Intelligent Transport Systems deliver significant economic gains; citizens benefit through informative services; journeys become more efficient; and, a transport assets start to generate higher returns. ITS will also have a profound impact on regional economic development by fostering new business start-ups, for example.
This webinar examines the intelligent-transport needs of local government and transport-sector authorities in the UK and how the oneM2M standard addresses their operational requirements across a broad set of stakeholders. Presenters from Arup, Buckinghamshire Country Council and InterDigital will describe how a public-private consortium field trial is using the standard within the oneTRANSPORT project. The pilot is being rolled out across several counties in the UK, covering a population of over 4m people. The webinar will also illustrate new application opportunities and business models for local authorities to monetize their assets including early Return-on-Investment projections for a viable, long-term deployment.
