October 17, 2012 – Worldwide implementations of cloud computing standards might not yet be a reality, but industry groups are making progress in areas such as security, interoperability, interfaces and inter-cloud infrastructure, according to an expert panel discussion held Tuesday, entitled “The State of Global Cloud Standards.”

The panel was led by Winston Bumpus, chairman of the board of the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) and director of standards architecture at VMware. Additional panelists included Dr. Jieping Wang of the China Electronics Standardization Institute; Ryuichi Ogawa of Japan’s non-profit cloud standardization group GICTIF; and Monique Morrow of the International Telecommunications Union. The four organizations represented by these panelists have cooperative agreements on computing system standards and each group represents hundreds of vendors and businesses engaged in cloud deployments around the world.
