Data Residency Working Group (Thurs., June 8, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm)
The OMG Data Residency Working Group explores issues and practices related to the impact of laws and regulations on data location and migration. The goal of the Working Group is to create and execute a roadmap for the elaboration of specifications to model, monitor and manage data residency issues and to develop various documents (taxonomy, discussion paper and lists of standards and regulations) to support this effort. Our “Data Residency Challenges” position paper was just approved at our March meeting in Reston and will soon be released officially by the OMG. Part of the Brussels meeting will be devoted to a presentation of the content of the paper, followed by a discussion of potential next steps. We are keenly interested in attracting representatives of various European organizations (governments, cloud and outsourcing vendors, as well as end users) to attend the meeting. Complimentary event.
Architecture Driven Modernization Best Practices Seminar (Thursday, June 8, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm)
The Cloud is the most profound change to computing taking place in our decade but most organizations see no clear pathway for achieving Cloud enablement for their mission critical legacy. Why is the Cloud-enablement of enterprise legacy systems lagging so far behind when the benefits are so apparent? Join us Thursday afternoon to hear Philip Newcomb, CEO/Founder, The Software Revolution, Inc. (TSRI) and Co-chair of the OMG Architecture Driven Modernization Task Force, directly address the challenges and opportunities organizations confront in migrating mission-critical legacy applications to the Cloud. This is a must-attend event for CIOs, CISOs, CTOs and other IT decision makers. Complimentary event.
