About this talk

We rely on technical standards for all facets of daily life. Yet it is easy to take technology standards for granted, forgetting that they underpin the technology used every day. As participants in the IT sector it is important for us to learn how standards are developed, why standards matter and how we all benefit from them. In this webcast, we’ll pull back the curtain on the standard development process, explain what makes something a standard, and decode a few funky common acronyms. You’ll learn: •The differences between a standard and a specification •Who is INCITS and what’s their role? •T11 Fibre Channel standards development process •T11 Fibre Channel Standards •Current Fibre Channel standards under development •Benefits of standards when architecting Fibre Channel solutions
