Ubicity is a pure TOSCA orchestrator: orchestration functionality is based exclusively on features in the TOSCA language without any built-in knowledge about domain-specific types or platform-specific implementations. Domain-specific information is introduced into the Orchestrator using TOSCA Profiles (a TOSCA Version 2.0 feature). Profiles include the artifacts that provide implementations for domain-specific types.
This webinar will highlight how Ubicity uses TOSCA features such as Requirement Fulfillment and Substitution Mapping to support abstract service templates that are realized based on available resources at deployment time. We will use deployment of Kubernetes Clusters as an example to demonstrate how Profiles are introduced into the Ubicity catalog, how the Orchestrator is made aware of external resources, how Service Archives are onboarded, and how services are deployed from the catalog.
During this first “OCA Community Forum,” we’ll tackle the topic of Indicators of Behaviour or IoBs. OCA Board Co-Chair, Jason Keirstead of IBM, will be joined by Lodrina Cherne from Cybereason to review:
What is an IoB, and how it differs from an Indicators of Attack (IoA) and Indicators of Compromise (IoC)?
How can (and should) an IoB be used by security practitioners, what outcomes are they used for?
Whether cybersecurity products should exchange IoBs? Assuming so, how would and should that work?
How the Open Cybersecurity Alliance plans to formulate a point of view around them.
Industrial manufacturing, long a laggard in the adoption of IT innovations, is experiencing a sudden and significant transformation of end-to-end digitalization. At the very heart of industrial manufacturing are proprietary solutions known as the “Industrial Control System” or “ICS”, an approximately $150B global market. Now entering testing and pilot demonstrations are Open-ICS architectures that are embracing modern IT technologies including virtualization and a 500X increase in compute power. And TOSCA is emerging as an important tool to simplify lifecycle management of applications and infrastructure in this Open-ICS environment. The webinar guest speakers will explain how CPLANE.ai just recently completed a highly successful pilot with ExxonMobil demonstrating the incredible power of orchestration using TOSCA in an Open-ICS.
This demonstration highlights the reduced startup time by more than 99% of an ICS. The speakers will also discuss how orchestration is being accepted as the key technology to displace proprietary systems. Orchestration is opening industrial manufacturing to Open and powerful IT and Cloud technologies, accelerating the digital transformation of industrial manufacturing. Yes, cloud architectures and technologies are conquering the heart of industrial manufacturing. Join us in this Webinar to learn how the TOSCA framework is leading the way.
Open Source 101 is a one-day educational conference covering the processes and tools foundational to open source, open tech,and the open web. All sessions will be delivered live and virtually to devices around the world. The format includes TED style keynote talks as well as track sessions from industry experts.
Guy Martin speaks about intersection of open source & open standards.
In this episode, Silona Bonewald, the Executive Director of IEEE SA Open, and Guy Martin, the OASIS Executive Director, join Stephen Walli to discuss the drivers that lead companies to invest in the development of open standards, and in open source implementations of those standards, and to explore the history of both standards development and open source communities, and what the future looks like for both.
The 2021 International Conference on the EU Cybersecurity Act has been developed to help standards community prepare for the evolution of risk-based frameworks meant to address market fragmentation in the EU. It will cover the potential effects on current schemes and regulatory mandates, as well as new potential candidate schemes for key industry verticals such as IoT, cloud, communications, payments, automotive, and more.

The next Open Matters discussion tackles the confusion around the convergence of open source and open standards.
IBM CTO of Open Technology and Fellow, Chris Ferris, joins Guy Martin to answer your questions about the trajectory of what’s needed for organizations to be successful in building a hybrid SDO/OSS model. They’ll reflect on the specific governance required to be successful in each space, as well as the operational best practices that need to play a role. Views will be shared on the current perceptions around the merging of these communities and the steps to be considered to help you breakdown traditional thinking. The discussion will conclude with ample time for questions.
The CyberMaryland Conference is an annual event presented by the Federal Business Council (FBC) in conjunction with academia, government and private industry organizations. In 2021, the conference is set to take place virtually. Industry representatives can expect thought leaders from Maryland’s cybersecurity sector and nationally recognized speakers and panelists on cyber and technology innovations. Sessions cover the most up-to-date information from subject matter experts in all facets of the cyber ecosystem.
It’s critical for our future innovative potential and survival that we rekindle the close collaborative tie between the open source and open standards communities. During this webinar will discuss how we can make open source and open standards even more effective by helping them recapture their strong partnership. Join Guy Martin, Executive Director at OASIS Open, as he presents:
The case for why both open source and open standards matter for innovation
How to address challenges and find common ground between the communities
The role of foundations/consortiums in providing neutral open governance
Inter-Cloud computing has been defined as a cloud model that, to guarantee service quality, allows on-demand resources and transfer of workload through interworking of different cloud providers. However, despite the data centre outages in the past, none of the leading commercial cloud providers voluntarily interconnect their infrastructures to allow sharing of on-demand resources among each other. As a result, cloud applications are directly responsible for managing resources provisioning and scheduling. On the other hand, Open Telekom Cloud by Deutsche Telekom (https://open-telekom-cloud.com) is the biggest OpenStack platform in Europe. It facilitates its customers to run a workload in multiple cloud providers. In this presentation, Dr. Tri Vo explains the reason why and how the standard specification TOSCA helps the users of Open Telekom Cloud to design their applications once and run anywhere by using the tool the Cloud Topology Designer (https://designer.otc-service.com).
The OFE Lounge is a series of after work online sessions held every Thursday starting mid February. It aims at bringing together standardisation and open source organisations to share their approach to the evolving role of open source in standardisation. The aim is to support information sharing between relevant standardisation and open source organisations, to help organisations in learning from each other, facilitate best practice sharing, identify opportunities and challenges and also to inform policy makers and all other interested parties.
OASIS Open Kicked-off 2021 with a New European Sovereign Affiliate Organization designed to advance open collaboration in Europe — OASIS Open Europe Foundation (OOEF). New OOEF Board Member, Laetitia Cailleteau (Managing Director and DATA&AI Lead for Europe at Accenture), joined Guy Martin and Carol Cosgrove-Sacks for the first 2021 Open Matters discussion. Laetitia teams up with a remarkable range of talent from the tech and academic worlds across Europe, with strong experience in ICT standards and open source projects, to govern OOEF. OOEF is positioned to:
Streamline information on current free open standards and open source projects available for use today;
Support and collaborate on European Union and EU Member state projects;
Increase efforts to research and develop innovative open source and standards technologies (for data management, cybersecurity, AI, …).
