Nice summary by Sai on the summary from IEEE conference from last year. Vinod and I contributed to the event last year by running a IBM cloud classroom as part of the conference. There was lot of interest from the community to understand the technologies, security aspects as well as new offerings in the IaaS, PaaS and SaaS world. The attendees were more from the service provider organizations. But as you rightly said there is more to be done by the Government and other Industries like Banking, Telecom to adopt cloud and realize its potential.
On the banking front, as you know we are trying to make cloud consumable for Indian Banks, by working on best practices and guidance to move their workloads to cloud. This work is currently happening as part of the Opengroup India security workgroup. We will discuss the progress and invite inputs and participation during the upcoming opengroup conference this month. Look forward to the participation.
