Robert Hart, Founder and CEO of the Canadian Cloud Council is pleased to announce that it is partnering with Fedplatform.org to facilitate the sharing of cloud computing best practices, standards and services between Canadian and US government organizations and public sector agencies.
Jan Levine, Director of Compliance at Fedplatform.org and Co-Founder of kloudtrack, recently spoke on the “Shared Services – The Case for Government Cloud Computing” panel at the Canadian Cloud Council’s “Cloud Launch” event in Ottawa and is an active member of the council’s rapidly growing “Government Cloud Working Group”.
“I was energized by the enthusiasm and commitment of the many senior IT and government speakers at the Canadian Cloud Council’s Ottawa event,” commented Levine. “It is evident to me that both the Canadian public sector and its many commercial enterprises intend to become world recognized leaders in this exciting new economic and technical revolution called The Cloud. I look forward to working diligently and effectively with Canadian technology experts to further that goal” Levine concluded.
Fedplatform.org, Canadian Cloud Council, GSA, and NIST recently wrapped up their inaugural “Federal Shared Services “online event to over 150 registrants. Cary Landis, Acting Executive Director of Fedplatform.org commented, "We're honored that the Canadian Cloud Council invited us to share experiences about the NIST Reference Architecture and other US Government initiatives. These types of collaborative events are absolutely essential during these formative years of cloud computing. The decisions of today may have potential implications for the next 20 or more years.”
The Canadian Cloud Council and Fedplatform.org are in the preliminary stages of planning a US and Canadian public sector focussed cloud event in Toronto in Spring 2014 and expanding their scope of activities through the Government Cloud Working Group, quarterly educational webinars and other synergistic activities.
