There is significant interest within OMG to start a Data Residency
Working Group to address data residency challenges. All interested parties are invited to attend
this introductory meeting on Tuesday, June 16 at the Radisson Blu
Hotel in Berlin,
Germany. You do not need to be a member of OMG to attend.
Why is Data Residency a Hot Topic?
As all kinds of business, mobile, and SaaS applications need to
support a growing user base around the globe, applications
themselves and their data become more distributed than ever. As a
consequence, different countries, especially in the European Union,
have adopted stringent data protection and privacy laws and
regulations regarding how data about their citizens can be
collected, stored, shared, and moved around. This has legal
implications for cloud service users and providers which must comply
with different regulations depending upon exactly where personal
data originated and is stored. In addition to regulatory compliance,
the “where’s my data” challenge immediately brings to the
forefront other issues such as security, privacy, governance, and
The OMG Data Residency Working Group will study issues of
documenting and controlling where data and online documents
physically reside, working with experts to provide practical,
multi-disciplinary solutions in this complex field.
The purpose of this meeting is to bring together individuals to
discuss data residency language, implementation, regulations, and standards direction. Registration is free.
Residency Workshop is part of the OMG Technical Meeting, June 15-19,
2015, Berlin, Germany. To register, check off "Data Residency WG" and
