SAP and Infosys have joined the board of directors and steering committee of the Open Data Center Alliance, an international organization that advocates for interoperable and secure cloud services in the enterprise market.
Both companies will work with board members from businesses such as Capgemini, Lockheed Martin, UBS and Verizon Terremark, the ODCA said Tuesday.
“SAP has made investments in the cloud in the last few years, and we recognize that joining the ODCA will help us evolve our cloud solutions,” said Martin Heisig, senior vice president of HANA Enterprise Cloud at SAP.
“ODCA’s vision of defining interoperable and secure cloud environment based on standardized usage models is strategically aligned with Infosys’ vision of delivering a unified cloud ecosystem for enterprises,” said Vishnu Bhat, SVP and global head of cloud and big data at Infosys.
The alliance has introduced more than 25 documents and usage models related to big data and enterprise cloud computing such as data security, infrastructure as a service, software defined networking and scale out storage.
