In my second interview with Andy McCaskey of sdrnews.com, the focus was on standards -- the reason why they evolve and why they take time to become real. McCaskey provided me with the opportunity to detail the world's first technical standard for Cloud Computing -- SOCCI -- the Service Oriented Cloud Computing Infrastructure from The Open Group. HP, as a Platinum Member of The Open Group, played a significant role in the creation of this standard. I co-chaired this project and also presented it in multiple sessions at the HP Discover 2012 conference.
