Eurocloud Calls for Standards and Transparency in Cloud Computing

Although it's been around for many years now, cloud computing is still a relatively new and mysterious to most people. The European SaaS and cloud computing vendor Eurocloud UK is calling for the IT industry to recognize this factor by installing universal standards and certification schemes to cultivate better practices and illuminate the processes to the public.

To address the matter properly, EuroCloud UK has organized a conference with other industry organizations and collective assess standardization. The conference will take place at Building Confidence in the Cloud this Wednesday, October 20th, in London. EuroCloud hopes to determine standards that will implement industry-wide definitions and best practices, according to EuroCloud UK's president, Phil Wainewright.

“Cloud technology arguably represents the most significant transformation in the delivery of IT since the launch of the internet,? Andy Burton, chair of the Cloud Industry Forum, said in a recent statement. “Combined with the advance of mobile computing, cloud services can radically change an organization’s operational agility and dramatically lower its cost base. However, for end users to embrace this new technology they rightly want to know they will avoid lock in issues, security risks and be clear on who they are relying on to deliver service. As such, the work of Eurocloud and the Cloud Industry Forum in aligning market understanding of best practice and driving an appropriate Code of Practice will bring end users and reputable service providers closer together in a trusted relationship.?

The conference will also be used as a platform to discuss Germany's EuroCloud Audit Seal for SaaS as a standard certification for software providers. When it comes out of Beta, the Audit Seal is expected to experience wide distribution among organizations across Europe.

The common goal for these procedures is to come to an understanding through clarity and logic with business practices and standards.“With several other initiatives still in the pipeline, the industry must work together to ensure clarity and consistency in our messaging,? Wainewright noted. “A common framework for understanding and evaluating provider offerings is essential, not only to build confidence in the cloud but also to reduce costs and delays in the procurement process.?
