This brief analysis deals with the possible challenges of migration of Lundbeck’s SAP solution and IT infrastructure generally to the cloud, and could apply to any pharmaceutical or medicinal company.

Invited as guest lecturer for Cloud Computing course @ITU

I was invited as guest lecturer for Cloud Computing course, ITU, February 2012

I hope the 2 hours talk was interesting. Smile (I am looking forward to feedback in few weeks)

The lecture was on implementation of private clouds and open source software in academic environments.

The presentation can be downloaded free and without registration from course’s blog – see lecture 7 of week 5:

Finished with the “Private Cloud in Academic Environments” project!

After six months of hard work, I am finally finished with the project (both project report delivery and exam)!

Please find more details about the project here, at dr. Ali Babar’s blog (my supervisor).

Ali and I plan to extend the private cloud solution for our research and education on cloud computing.

The plan is also further to refine and publish the guidelines from the project report. If you are interested in getting the report in its current form, please contact dr. Ali Babar.

Participated in research project ”ArchCloud” @ ITU of Copenhagen

Participated in research project ”ArchCloud” @ ITU of Copenhagen with presentation on “Setting up a private cloud for academic environment with open source software”.

The intention was to establish a close collaboration under a main theme “Empowering Cloud computing with architectural principles and practices” which connects Danish researchers with highly knowledgeable and expert researchers in the areas of cloud computing, software architecture, and software product lines from China, Japan, and Brazil.
