Very interesting sessions – trying to highlight the key takeaways:

  • Open standards are important, interoperability is really important – but open standards should be viewed as part of a framwork, not isolated, long term stability is vital
  • Importance of security- risk management framework is a vital approach, a structured way to look at security issues; there’s a whole range of stakeholders involved, all of them should be mentioned in the framework
  • Cloud computing – new approaches, developing countries should start experimenting & using the cloud
  • Suggestion – connect experts in the field to share experience
