Open Group Beijing Kickoff

Posted on 26 May 2009 in cloud

I had a great opportunity to revisit China, part of my old region (and now part of my new global responsibility), as part of The Open Group's kickoff last week:

The Open Group, which recently established a franchise in China with Kingdee, is a vendor-neutral and technology-neutral consortium, which drives the creation of Boundaryless Information Flow™ that will enable access to integrated information within and between enterprises based on open standards and global interoperability.

That's Allen Brown, President and CEO of the Open Group, giving the opening talk.

I was there to speak about cloud computing, its challenges and opportunities to enterprise architects. Kingdee and TOG put on a great conference, which was well attended. Maybe I'll go back in October when they have their practitioners conference in Hong Kong.
