"When the project first starts out, initially we're ticking off progress at a pretty regular basis…but what can happen as you start nearing completion—the 70, 80, 90 percent done—is that progress as measured can begin to stall out."

Michael Bandor

"A TRA is not a documentation review. There's a lot of planning that goes into it, six months to a year's worth of planning out front. You actually get into design details, engineering studies, &test reports. It's really a heavy-duty engineering level review."

Standards in Cloud Computing Interoperability

 Jeffrey Smith (Microsoft)

Grace Lewis

"The biggest fear is really vendor lock-in. People want to have the freedom to move from one cloud provider to another in case the relationship between them isn't working, service-level agreements aren't being met, other providers have better prices, or even if their provider goes out of business, which is not unusual in today's world. If there aren't standards, then moving between providers could be very difficult."
