This CloudWATCH workshop provides user experience on standards-based interoperability, meeting increasing customer needs for freedom of choice and increased control.
Interoperability is a basic requirement for cloud services. It fosters fair competition and is fundamental to integrating components, so that an ongoing innovation process is possible. But interoperability demands common technical and legal parameters, which are related to open standards and governance.
This workshop will see authors and users of four most popular cloud standards come together to learn from each other’s experiences and showcase benefits and best-practices.
If you are using a cloud standard or would like to, we want to hear why, if the benefits as you expected, and what pitfalls or moments of enlightenment have you had.
