We are pleased to announce that we are now members of the Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC), an end user advocacy group thats dedicated to cloud computing. We join around 700 technology and end-user organisations that want to separate the hype from the reality of cloud computing and establish exactly how customers can leaverage cloud computing successfully, in a standards based, secure and business driven manner.
The Cloud Standards Customer Council is chartered to:-
- Deliver customer-focused content in the form of best practices, patterns, case studies, use cases, and standards roadmap
- Influence the standards development process for new cloud standards
- Facilitate the exchange of real-world stories, practices, lessons and insights
Its that focus on separating hype from reality and the drive towards best practice, customer driven cloud adoption that drew us to becoming a member and contributor to the Council. We advocate the use of Cloud Computing but approach adoption with caution alongside our clients; there is no one size fits all and any transition needs to be thought about carefully. The Council has now issued the 3rd edition of “Practical Guide to Cloud Computing” which offers a loose blueprint for organisations planning cloud projects. A paper worth the reading time.
