ILNAS Organizes A Training Course “Standards For Interoperability And Portability In Cloud Computing”

On Tuesday, May 7th 2024, ILNAS will organize a training session aiming to introduce the technical standards that could help in addressing Cloud Computing challenges such as interoperability and portability.

Cloud Computing is now everywhere. It guarantees the delivery of practically unlimited computing resources and services remotely and thus supports the development of other information and communication technologies (ICT). With the increasing demand for the use of Cloud Computing, some of the major challenges have emerged, such as interoperability and portability. The training aims to describe the fundamental concepts of Cloud Computing, with the focus on interoperability and portability aspects, and to introduce relevant standards as part of the solution addressing these challenges.

Date: 07/05/2024

Trainer: Mrs. Rim Doukha, ICT and technical standardization project officer, ANEC GIE. She was notably in charge of the development of the report Technical Standardization: addressing Cloud Computing challenges and supporting related ICT development published on the 14th June 2022.
