  • Introducing the OMG Cloud Working Group Jul 19 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Cloud Standards Customer Council
    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

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 Recorded: Mar 28 2018 58 mins
    Cloud Standards Customer Council
    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 Recorded: Feb 27 2018 62 mins
    Claude Baudoin, owner, cébé IT & Knowledge Management and Geoff Rayner, CEO, Data Advantage Group
    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 Recorded: Feb 15 2018 54 mins
    Cloud Standards Customer Council
    Speakers:
    Dan O’Prey, Chair of Hyperledger Marketing Committee and CMO at Digital Asset

  • ISO Cloud Computing Interoperability and Portability Standards Recorded: Oct 26 2017 62 mins
    Cloud Standards Customer Council
    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.
  • Hybrid Cloud Considerations for Big Data and Analytics Recorded: Aug 11 2017 61 mins
    Cloud Standards Customer Council
    Today, the majority of big data and analytics use cases are built on hybrid cloud infrastructure. A hybrid cloud is a combination of on-premises and local cloud resources integrated with one or more dedicated cloud(s) and one or more public cloud(s). Hybrid cloud computing has matured to support data security and privacy requirements as well as increased scalability and computational power needed for big data and analytics solutions.

    This webinar summarizes what hybrid cloud is, explains why it is important in the context of big data and analytics, and discusses implementation considerations unique to hybrid cloud computing.

  • Cloud Customer Architecture for IoT Recorded: Jun 15 2017 55 mins
    Gopal Indurkya, Executive IT Architect, IBM and Eric Libow, CTO, Watson IoT Connected Products, IBM
    The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most exciting and dynamic areas of IT at the present time. IoT involves the linking of physical entities (“things”) with IT systems that derive information about or from those things which can be used to drive a wide variety of applications and services. IoT covers a very wide spectrum of applications, spanning enterprises, governments and consumers and represents the integration of systems from traditionally different communities: Information Technology and Operational Technology. As a result, it is important for IoT systems to have architectures, systems principles, and operations that can accommodate the interesting scale, safety, reliability, and privacy requirements. Attend this webinar to hear best practices for supporting the Internet of Things (IoT) using cloud computing.
