Cloud computing is one of the major technologies that is revolutionizing the computer industry and is transforming our society. It enables enterprises and governments to dynamically adapt their computing infrastructure to meet the rapidly changing requirements with greatly reduced complexities of IT management. Overwhelming digitization in various sectors and the emergence of digital economy, on the other hand, is opening up several opportunities for the government to provide novel services to citizens using solutions based on IoT (Internet of Things) and Cloud. However, governments face serious challenges while delivering these services due to growing population, declining budgets and increasing security threats and privacy issues. This is the right time for leading technologists to come together & explore use of leading-edge technologies and associated standards to effectively improve the productivity and lifestyle of citizens.

The Workshop on Cloud Computing & Cyber Physical Systems, jointly organized by CCICI and NIST in partnership with IEEE Bangalore Section, is a unique platform that brings experts from Industry, Government, International standards organizations and Academia at one place and enable discussions on:

  • Opportunities, issues and challenges for Cloud and IoT adoption in India
  • New standards and policies to make the adoption a viable business proposition
