Like many technologies, Cloud Computing was perhaps over-hyped in the short run and its impact underestimated in the long run. If you are struggling to gain insights on where Cloud Computing technology is heading, you’ll be interetsed in the findings of the CLOUD2 Commission, which was recently appointed by the Obama Administration to study the current state and future of Cloud Computing. These finding will be presented in a webcast on October 4, 2011 at 1:00 PM Eastern.

The TechAmerica CLOUD2Commission worked with 71 experts from industry and academia to gain insights on where the Cloud Computing industry is headed. The results are a 30 page comprehensive report and buyers guide. Wyatt Starnes, Vice President of Advanced Concepts for Harris Cyber Integrated Solutions and CLOUD2 Commissioner, will be distilling down these findings and present the key topics and recommended best practices.

There are number valuable insights from these findings. The committee’s recommendations center on these topics:
• Trust – Ensuring that cloud services are truly meeting the needs of customer
• Transformation – Deals with the policies, infrastructure and training around cloud adoption
• Transparency – Require vendors to share information on their capabilities, offering and service levels
• Transnational Data Flows – Need for collaboration & standardization of data access across national borders

  1. For me there are two reasons why businesses should seriously consider cloud computing: one is scalability, second cost. Anyway, I'm looking forward to a copy of the webcast, if not a time to participate in it.
