Cloud computing underpins an important part of economic activity today, and has the potential to make a major contribution to future growth. To deliver its anticipated benefits, it must be easy to use and cost-efficient. This means that enterprises and individuals must be able to use cloud products and services as far as possible “off the shelf”. The products and services should work together, and minimal effort should be needed to incorporate them into a user’s systems. This is the case for the basic Internet, but not yet for the additional components that constitute the cloud. Lack of portability of and interoperability between these components could mean that the potential of cloud computing is not fulfilled. This guide analyses cloud computing portability and interoperability. It makes recommendations to customers on how best to achieve portability and interoperability when working with current cloud products and services. It makes recommendations to suppliers and standards bodies on how standards and best practice should evolve to enable greater portability and interoperability in the future. Access >>>
