Event Category:

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. 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, covering interoperability and portability aspects, and to introduce relevant standards as part of the solution addressing these challenges.

Date: 23/03/2023

Trainer: Mrs. Rim Doukha, ICT and technical standardization project officer, ANEC GIE.
