ILNAS is organizing a training course "Standards for Interoperability and Portability in Cloud Computing"

On Thursday, September 29 th 2022, ILNAS will deliver a training that aims to describe the fundamental concepts of Cloud Computing, covering interoperability and portability aspects, and to introduce relevant standards as part of the solution addressing these challenges.

Cloud Computing is now everywhere. It guarantees the delivery of practically unlimited computing resources and services remotely and thus supports the development of other ICT technologies.

With the increasing demand for the use of Cloud Computing, some of the major challenges have emerged, such as interoperability and portability.

Date: 29/09/2022

Trainer: Mrs. Rim Doukha, “ICT and technical standardization” project officer at ANEC GIE. Among other things, she was in charge of the development of the report “Technical Standardization: addressing Cloud Computing challenges and supporting related ICT development” published on June 14 th 2022 by ILNAS, with the support of ANEC GIE.
