IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) has formed the 'Cloud Computing Innovation Council' that will serve as a "think tank" for propelling technological innovations across the cloud-computing ecosystem in India and other emerging markets.

The new council is established as an IEEE-SA Industry Connections activity.

"The council is very important to the adoption and deployment of cloud computing as India's IT infrastructure of choice," said Srikanth Chandrasekaran, standards senior manager for IEEE India.

"The government of India is already driving several cloud-computing projects under the guidance and leadership of the Department of Electronics & Information Technology (DeitY). To help further direct these programmes, the council will provide proposals for standards, research, education initiatives and regulatory, legislation and policy recommendations to promote innovation that's vital to the framework of this technology."

"We will soon publish a white paper that will specify an innovation roadmap for cloud-computing technologies in India," Pamela Kumar, chair of the Cloud Computing Innovation Council for India stated. "The scope of this white paper encompasses the usage scenarios and service delivery, platform and infrastructure technologies, and the enablement framework for cloud computing."

"The council is composed of 14 working groups addressing global trends in the relevant technologies, initiatives and opportunities in India. This includes challenges and barriers unique to the Indian ecosystem, which will be providing recommendations and innovation proposals."

"By gathering industry experts and members of other professional bodies and academia, the council aims to position India as a global provider of cloud-computing services and infrastructure. As the council further matures, we look forward to the formation of globally relevant IEEE standards and other technological advancements that will make a significant difference in the future of cloud computing in India and around the world," Konstantinos Karachalios, managing director of the IEEE-SA, added.
