ONUG Celebrates 10 Years!

The year 2022 marks 10 years in which the ONUG Community of Global 2000 companies have been defining and building the next generation of enterprise computing by leveraging a software-based approach to create business value. 

As a member of the Community, I want to say thank you for being an integral part of the future of the Enterprise Cloud!

Despite extreme challenges over the past two years, ONUG has excelled, and we are so proud of the Community’s accomplishments. 

The ONUG Collaborative was born in 2020 and through the ONUG Collaborative Working Groups, the community is identifying and providing solutions for the large enterprise’s most important issues, currently cloud security and governance. Collaborative members include Cigna, FedEx, Raytheon Technologies, Goldman Sachs, Intuit, Kaiser Permanente, Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud, Cisco, Sysdig, Wiz, and many more

The ONUG Collaborative, through the Automated Cloud Governance (ACG) Working Group, is building the Cloud Security Notification Framework or CSNF which provides translation service between cloud security logs/events/alerts and decoration so as to provide contextualization to speed up threat hunting and cloud governance. This work is community driven and developed, and if your company would like to get involved in these efforts contact Paul Agranat. If you are a developer interested in contributing to the open source canonical data model, visit here for more information. 

The Year Ahead

As we move into 2022, the ONUG Community will continue its work to drive adoption of complex multi-cloud architectures to meet the needs of the modern enterprise. The Community will be engaged in a number of initiatives and interactions in the year ahead. From live demonstrations based upon ONUG Working Group frameworks, to use cases, proofs of concept and ONUG Collaborative Working Group outputs, 2022 will be the year of ONUG!

Most exciting for 2022 will be our transition back to live events. ONUG Spring will take place April 27-28 in New Jersey, and we hope you make plans to join us when registration opens. Get alerted when registration opens the first of the New Year.  This LIVE, in-person event will feature 1:1 networking between buyers and sellers, hands-on training, instruction and education along with the all-new-for-2022 live multi-vendor/multi-cloud integration demonstrations. These demonstrations will be the cornerstone of the live event and is truly what makes ONUG Conferences stand out in the Enterprise Cloud space. 

How to Get Involved

If you are an Enterprise IT executive, practitioner or developer responsible for cloud computing, security, multi-cloud networking or DevOps, ONUG is your Community.  If you are not already a member of ONUG.net, register here to get access to conference discounts, live demonstrations, one-click registration to year-round webinars, PoCs, ONUG Academy sessions, peer collaboration and more.

I look forward to seeing you in 2022, and from the entire ONUG Team, we would like to wish you a wonderful holiday season and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
