TRANSFORM 2 – Trusted Cloud infrastructure (TCi) for E-Health

GovCloud Best Practices Solutions Guide - Version 1.00 Issue 2 of our e-magazine TRANSFORM is now available:

Download Transform Issue 2 (18-page PDF).

This edition is written as a more detailed response to the recent Cloud strategy published by Canada Health Infoway, that we initially reviewed here.

At a headline level the Infoway document identifies a number of very important Cloud architecture principles most notably:

  • Cloud 2.0 : How Cloud can accelerate more social media based methods for e-Health
  • C-SOA : The intersection of Cloud and the SOA (Service Oriented Architecture)
  • TCi : Trusted Cloud infrastructure - How to certify supplier services as being suitably secure for these new applications

With thanks to our co-authors for this great edition, including Rackspace, Vaultive and a keynote contribution from Robert Griffin, Chief Security Officer for EMC RSA and lead for the OASIS KMIP project.

Stay tuned for a follow up Solution Showcase e-newsletter, a rolling ‘catalogue of a broad supplier mix around this theme of Cloud Innovation in E-Health.
