I mentioned in a post yesterday that the Cloud tends to be a discussion between experts. Kevin Jackson today wrote on Forbes.com about a new move by client companies to get a say in how the Cloud evolves and the standards for cloud infrastructure and services. Well worth a look:
Last week I had the opportunity to discuss the newly released Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC) Practical Guide to Cloud Computing with Dr. Angel Diaz of IBM. Written with a cross-industry viewpoint, this guide is written through the lens of the end user. According to Dr. Diaz, the goal is to get cloud computing end users engaged in a dialog on cloud computing adoption use cases.
Obviously we’ll try to keep an eye on who is involved and what the Council does.
