This is the Cloud Computing Work Group collaboration page. It is the central point for The Open Group work on Cloud Computing. The Cloud Computing Work Group is a work group of the Open Platform 3.0 Forum.

The Work Group

The Open Group Cloud Computing Work Group exists to create a common understanding among buyers and suppliers of how enterprises of all sizes and scales of operation can include Cloud Computing technology in a safe and secure way in their architectures to realize its significant cost, scalability and agility benefits. It includes some of the industry’s leading cloud providers and end-user organizations, collaborating on standard models and frameworks aimed at eliminating vendor lock-in for enterprises looking to benefit from cloud products and services.


Our work is mainly conducted by project teams. Each project has its own Plato page. Project materials are also often developed on the Cloud Work Group wiki. Project materials are usually available to members only. If you are interested in the work of a project, write to its co-chairs. You can find their names, with e-mail links, on the project Plato pages.

The Work Group currently has just one project in progress.

The other projects of the Cloud Computing Work Group have finished their work.

You can find their output using the Publications section of the Navigation Bar on this page.
