The Canadian Cloud Council’s third national cloud conference, “Cloud Matters”, will be held at the Rimrock Resort in Banff, Alberta on March 11 and 12, 2013 and will feature Steven Woodward, Chief Technology Officer at Canadian Cloud Council.
Steven Woodward, CEO of Cloud Perspectives and Chief Cloud Officer at The Politburo, is a globally renowned cloud technology expert and leading contributor with FedRamp, National Institute of Standards for Technology (NIST) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Joint Collaboration Activity working groups. Steven authored and leads cloud computing best practices and guides with NIST, ITU-T, TM Forum, ISMA-IFPUG and the OMG. Subject areas include reference architecture, roles, brokers, resources, metrics, estimation, project management, sub-services, metering, costing, planning and governance. He is a leading and encouraging international cloud collaboration in the industry and academia. Based in Ottawa, Canada, he is also a member of the Shared Services Canada Advisory Committee.
"Please join the many cloud computing thought leaders, who are sure to provide many interesting insights on the state of cloud computing in beautiful Banff, Alberta," commented Woodward. I look forward to presenting with Dan Galorath, CEO of Galorath Systems who will join us from sunny California."
"Dan and I will provide updates from metrics, benchmarking, estimation and pricing perspectives. International benchmarks and parametric estimation models are incorporating more cloud computing historical data to enable more accurate estimates, pricing and costing. Cloud governance, with appropriate measures, metrics and analytics, enables transparency, which improves stakeholders comfort and trust. The Cloud Matters event also offers tremendous networking opportunties, where I look forward to discussing various cloud community progress such as: NIST, ITU-T, CSA, TM Forum, OMG, ISO, IFPUG, Cloud Commons and IEEE."
"The Canadian Cloud Council Government Working Group will also meet during the event to prioritize further activities of interest and we welcome any active members of the Canadian Cloud Council to attend," concluded Woodward.
