Cloud & Data Chapter

The chapter started out as a new technology-focused Web Services Chapter in 2002. In 2006, the chapter was re-branded Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Chapter with an elevated focus on architecture. Since then, the chapter had collaborated with the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) and Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) to form the vendor-neutral NYP-SiTF SOA Centre; and in 2008 completed interoperability testing of 60 industry projects.

 In 2011, NYP and SiTF(now SGTech) embarked on a new chapter of collaboration with the formalisation of the SiTF(now SGTech)-NYP Cloud Enablement Centre (CEC). The CEC aims to foster adoption of Cloud Computing technology in the enterprise, especially among Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) for improved productivity, increased revenue and value-add to the business.

SOA has matured in the marketplace and Cloud Computing has emerged as the next logical step of progression. In order for the chapter to continue to be the voice of industry for this dynamic area and drive membership growth, a notion was put forward in early 2010 and garnered its members support for the chapter to be renamed Cloud Computing Chapter (CCC). The CCC will continue to address the key issues in moving Cloud Computing to the next level of adoption by the industry and businesses. The chapter will engage with the infocomm community and end-user organizations in the following areas:

Cloud Pillars

Type of Companies

Cloud Applications

Software as a Service

Software plus Services

Security as a Service

Cloud Platforms

Platform as a Service

Cloud Infrastructure

Infrastructure as a Service

Computer Hardware

Cloud Enablement Providers

The new direction will enable the chapter to stay relevant and broaden our reach to more members; and ask that you support this change.
