I would like to invite our valued readers to the launch of iTnews' latest investigation into cloud computing, titled Which Clouds Play Nice, on 19 October 2011.
The report, prepared by our editorial team and developer Sam Gentle, evaluates the world’s largest software-as-a-service providers on their API coverage, adherence to open standards, native integration with other enterprise tools and ease of migration.
It will be launched at Sydney Convention Centre this month as part of vForum, Australia’s premier cloud computing event.
Readers of iTnews will be able to register to attend the event free. Registrations are open here.
I would like to extend a warm thanks to the team at VMware Australia for again supporting our efforts to bring some clarity to this subject.
The research attempts to solve a problem many chief information officers are just starting to come to terms with in the cloud computing age: If applications are delivered to the enterprise from multiple providers using different standards, dispersed around the globe, how does the business connect and share data between those applications?
The study includes several useful visualisations and practical advice for those buisness leaders making crucial decisions around which SaaS vendors to subscribe to.
The event would best suit CIOs, IT managers, legal counsels, enterprise architects and other software developers.
