The Enterprise Cloud Computing Conference will be a one-day event dedicated to developing an enterprise perspective on cloud computing. Industry leaders, including invited speakers from Amazon, Google and IBM, will discuss key topics including the cloud computing service model, the need for standardization and cloud implementation guidelines and best practices.
“There are two inescapable realities in today’s IT world: innovation will continue to produce advances in how those who have access will work, rest and play; and advances in IT security will continue to be increasingly critical to protecting ourselves and our assets,” said Brown. “I am delighted that the members of our Security Forum have taken the initiative to embark on a series of Security Practitioner Conferences, where attendees can share their knowledge and experiences, especially as it relates to heterogeneous environments where open standards are critical. I am similarly delighted that, as an open standards consortium, our members are engaging with Cloud Computing at an early stage in its evolution, and I very much look forward to gaining a greater understanding of the issues, challenges and opportunities that it presents.”
