Momentum builds around Cloud Computing Code of Practice
Posted on 9-Nov-2011 16:32. | Tags Filed under: News.



Strong progress is being made on the development of a Code of Practice for Cloud Computing in New Zealand, with the first of a series of nationwide consultative workshops kicking off in Christchurch next week.

The initiative is being facilitated independently by the New Zealand Computer Society (NZCS) and was launched following a number of industry discussions identifying the need to proactively address standards and accountability around Cloud Computing.

The project is being supported by a broad range of leading Cloud Computing providers and other interested stakeholders in New Zealand as well as leading international cloud providers such as Google, Microsoft and Salesforce.com.

In announcing the workshops, Project Coordinator Joy Cottle said today “We’re very much looking forward to the next phase of the project and bringing together the diverse views and perspectives of various stakeholders. We strongly encourage anyone with an interest in Cloud Computing to participate in this process.”

The initial phase of the project will decide the structure and approach of the code. This will then be put out for public consultation with the project them focusing on the detail of the Code. It is anticipated that the full draft Cloud Computing Code of Practice will be available for public comment early in 2012.

“As well as offering confidence to users of Cloud Computing, the CloudCode will show the international community that New Zealand is serious about good practice and standards in the cloud and help build New Zealand’s technology reputation globally.” said NZCS CEO and Cloud Steering Group Chairperson Paul Matthews.

Nearly 100 people have joined the consultation group to contribute to the Code development with financial contributors to the project including Xero, Gen-I, Equinox, OneNet, Webdrive, Google, Salesforce.com, InternetNZ, NZRise, EOSS Online Ltd, Systems Advisory Services and NZCS.
