IEEE Cloud Computing Magazine Focuses On GovCloud

Transformation Network

By pwsadmin | May 15, 2021

The Achilles heel of every transformative business model is their reliance on ever increasing amounts of data that need to be transported quickly across wide area networks and processed at edge computing end points. To meet this expected demand, the global telecommunications industry is rapidly moving toward a future in which networks must have the…

Essential Characteristics of Cloud Computing as Digital Transformation

By pwsadmin | May 15, 2021

Hybrid IT blends traditional datacenters, managed service providers, and cloud service providers to deliver the necessary mix of information technology services. This IT consumption model enables a composable infrastructure which describes a framework whose physical compute, storage, and network fabric resources are treated as services. Resources are logically pooled so that administrators no longer need…

Transformation Innovation

By pwsadmin | May 15, 2021

4 Factors Driving Digital Transformation ROI The critical assessment factors for cloud ROI risk probability are the following:      Infrastructure utilization Speed of migration to cloud Ability to scale business/mission processes Quality delivered by the new cloud-based process  These four factors directly drive digital transformation ROI because they affect revenue, cost, and the time required to…

Transformation Frameworks

By pwsadmin | May 15, 2021

Digital transformation necessitates changes in an organization’s operational processes. According to Harvard, a focus on operations can lead to business process optimization and entirely new revenue streams. Three common routes for this are the following:      Robotic process automation (RPA) which uses artificial intelligence to automate routine activities      Remote worker enablement that uses workspace virtualization and…

Transformation Infrastructure

By pwsadmin | September 26, 2020

Hybrid IT enables a composable infrastructure which describes a framework whose physical compute, storage, and network fabric resources are treated as services. Resources are logically pooled so that administrators need to physically configure hardware to support a specific software application, which describes the function of a composable architecture. This type of transformative infrastructure is foundational…

Essential Characteristics of Cloud Computing as Digital Transformation

By pwsadmin | September 25, 2020

A survey of 2,000 executives conducted by Cognizant in 2016 identified the top five ways digital transformations generate value:      Accelerating speed to market      Strengthening competitive positioning      Boosting revenue growth      Raising employee productivity      Expanding the ability to acquire, engage, and retain customers   Digital transformation is also a cultural change. Cloud Computing as Digital Transformation Since cloud…

Embrace Transformation

By pwsadmin | September 22, 2020

From a business perspective, differentiating business processes and quality customer service are central to overall success. Business leaders must therefore clearly identify and measure how information technology contributes to the value of every key business process. They must also know how to most cost effectively use IT when the task is merely the management of…

Computer Vision Advances Zero-Defect Manufacturing

By pwsadmin | July 25, 2020

by Kevin L. Jackson Electronics manufacturers operate in a challenging environment. It’s hard enough to keep up with the ever-accelerating rate of change in the industry. Now customers want increasingly specialized product variations in less time and of higher quality. Meeting this demand for increased product variation can seriously impact the bottom line. Such variability increases…

Real-Time Analytics Power the Roadway of the Future

By pwsadmin | July 25, 2020

By Kevin L. Jackson The complexities of citywide traffic are pushing the limits of existing transportation management systems. Outdated infrastructure is based on proprietary, single-purpose subsystems, making it costly to acquire, operate, and maintain. And current roadways are simply not prepared for the future of autonomous vehicles. Enter the SPaT Challenge, an initiative encouraging cities and…

Thriving on the Edge: Developing CSP Edge Computing Strategy

By pwsadmin | March 6, 2020

Communications Service Providers (CSPs) are facing significant business model challenges. Referred to generally as edge computing, the possibilities introduced by the blending of 5G networks and distributed cloud computing technologies are redefining how CSPs operate, partner, and drive revenue. A new Ericsson Digital whitepaper entitled, “Edge computing and deployment strategies for communication service providers,” addresses these challenges…

Today I am especially proud and honored to publicly announce my appointment to the IEEE Cloud Computing Magazine Editorial Board!  I am truly appreciative to Dr. Alan Sill and Dr. Masin Yousif for their trust and confidence in nominating me to this position.

As the world’s largest professional association for the advancement of technology, IEEE has always been a part of my professional career. Their mission, Advancing Technology for Humanity, also aligns with my own personal aspirations and goal of helping global governments better realize the promise of cloud computing.

IEEE Cloud Computing is committed to the timely publication of peer-reviewed articles that provide innovative research ideas, applications results, and case studies in all areas of cloud computing.
Topics relating to novel theory, algorithms, performance analyses and applications of techniques are covered.

  • Cloud architectures (delivery models and deployments),
  • Cloud management (balancing automation and robustness with monitoring and maintenance),
  • Cloud security and privacy (issues stemming from technology, process and governance, international law, and legal frameworks),
  • Cloud services (cloud services drive and are driven by consumer demand; as markets change, so do the types of services being offered),
  • Cloud experiences and adoption (deployment scenarios and consumer expectations),
  • Cloud and adjacent technology trends (exploring trends in the market and impacts on and influences of cloud computing),
  • Cloud economics (direct and indirect costs of cloud computing on the consumer; sustainable models for providers),
  • Cloud standardization and compliance (facilitating the standardization of cloud tech and test suites for compliance), and
  • Cloud governance (transparency of processes, legal frameworks, and consumer monitoring and reporting).

Upon accepting this position, my first duty was to establish an advisory board. The board will advise and assist me in:

  • Identifying and selecting topics of interest for publication:
  • Identifying and selecting contributor to author articles on topics of interest; and
  • Reviewing and recommending submitted articles for publication.

My esteemed advisory board is composed of:
 

Ms. Marilyn Moux, a seasoned professional with experience in software/system development life cycle in a variety of industries including Information Technology, Health Care, Federal/State/Local Governments, Financial, Mortgage Banking, Telecommunications, and Aerospace.

Mr. Bob Gourley,  publisher of CTOvision.com and ThreatBrief.com and a co-founder and partner of Cognitio.

Dr. Michaela Iorga the senior security technical lead for cloud computing at the National Institute of Standards and Technology‘s computer security division. She also serves as co-chair of the agency’s Cloud Computing Forensic Science Working Group and Cloud Computing Security Working Group.

Dr. F. Brett Berlin, a member The George Mason University Volgenau School Faculty (Adjunct Professor, Grand Challenges of Cyberspace and Data Analytics) and of the George Washington University (School of Engineering and Applied Sciences);

Mr. Melvin Greer, a Senior Fellow and Chief Strategist at Lockheed Martin and a recognized expert in Service Oriented Architecture, Cloud Computing and Predictive Analytics.

Please reach out to me or any board members directly if you have any specific topics you would like addressed or if you would like to contribute an article to the magazine. I also invite you to support IEEE Cloud Computing by subscribing to the magazine. Going forward I will feature the most recent edition at the top of the side panel on this blog. The landing page will provide access to the table of contents with instructions on how to subscribe.  Periodically we will also provide free access to selected articles via social media.  I look forward to serving you from this exciting perspective and can’t wait to hear your recommendations and suggestions.
