Subject: RE: Groups - oasis - New ballot "SAF abstract submission to IBM CASCON"
Hi, Voting yes, but I suggest substituting "significantly disrupts" for "breaks down," which could be misconstrued (having two meanings as it does) with "explaining or organizing rather than messing up. If anybody disagrees, please indicate as a note on the ballot.

To vote on this ballot, go here: http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/saf/ballot.php?id=1937 Please DO NOT REPLY to this email; instead, vote using the above link. The text of this ballot is as follows: --- "SAF abstract submission to IBM CASCON" The SAF TC aims to be represented in the IBM CASCON Diagnosis Workshop (https://www-927.ibm.com/ibm/cas/cascon/). Please vote whether you agree to use the proposed abstract for submission below (which is the intro from the SAF for Cloud Business Alignment slidedeck): "Human experts in specific IT infrastructure and business domains possess substantial knowledge about prevention, remediation, and optimization of systems based on business conditions. The Cloud breaks down opportunities for these experts (often residing in multiple cloud consumers and providers) to collaborate in order to effectively capture, combine, and leverage this silo-ed knowledge across their various multiple domains in an automated fashion. Thus, while cloud providers will be able to provide standardized management interfaces to control their services, business consumers will be unable to adequately automate and obtain value for their business using these management interfaces. The Symptoms Automation Framework (SAF) is a catalog-based XML collaborative knowledge framework that is designed to address these challenges by automating appropriate responses to changing business conditions and integrating contributions from diverse domains. SAF has applicability to cloud computing (using the SAF Cloud Profile currently under development) as well as many other architectures and disciplines" - Yes - No - Abstain --- The ballot closes Friday, 3 September 2010 @ 17:00 GMT.
