Strategies And Technologies for Cloud Computing Interoperability (SATCCI)

A major cloud computing interoperability event

As I alluded to in an earlier post, a major cloud computing interoperability event will be held in conjunction with the Object Management Group (OMG) March Technical Meeting on March 23, 2009, Hyatt Regency Crystal City, Arlington, VA, USA.

An all day workshop entitled "Strategies And Technologies for Cloud Computing Interoperability (SATCCI)" to be held in order to provide leaders in the Federal computing community with an overview of Cloud Interoperability/Portability issues and possible solutions. The Workshop will increase the attendees understanding of this area, will encourage ongoing participation from attendee organizations, and gather feedback on future requirements for open Cloud Computing deployments. This feedback can help guide future Cloud Computing standardization organization deliverables.

Many groups working on cloud interoperability and portability have been invited to attend, including:

A clear motivation for the SATCCI Workshop is the expectation that the new administration will be taking a critical look at using cloud computing as part of it's efforts to improve government transparency.

The SATCCI organizers will be inviting representatives of major Federal computing organizations to attend and participate in making this a practical, productive, and timely Workshop. To register for this Special Event, go to http://www.omg.org/registration/dc/
