SWiFT 10: New Irish cloud computing standard launched

THE Irish Government has launched new standards to provide guidance to businesses on moving to cloud computing. The Department of Enterprise and Jobs said yesterday that "cloud services were reshaping the future of computing but one of the primary concerns with the emerging cloud paradigm is the lack of standards to guide its adoption and implementation.”

The National Standards Authority of Ireland in partnership with the Irish Internet Association, yesterday launched the new standards, entitled, SWiFT 10: Adopting the Cloud – Decision Support for Cloud Computing which is designed to provide guidance to organisations of all sizes on the issues that need to be addressed when thinking about moving to the cloud.
