About the Cloud Scorecard and Institutional Profiles Advisory Group

Cloud Scorecard

The Internet2 Cloud Scorecard helps research and education institutions and vendors quickly assess which cloud services meet common requirements.  The range of available cloud services can quickly overwhelm your institution’s current practices for assessment and procurement. There is still a need for thoughtful cloud service evaluation and review to ensure we meet security, compliance, and technology requirements.  The scorecard is a self-assessment completed by the vendor using standards and best practices developed within the research and education community. Here is how Cloud Scorecard can help you and your organization:

Institutional Profiles

Here, we gather and share service specific profiles from the community in order to further institutional collaboration and best practices around cloud services in use at peer institutions.  Please understand, as the data presented in specific profiles and reported on within the profiles could be sensitive in nature, we do limit access to specific service profiles.  While you might be able to access the Institutional Profiles homepage, it doesn't necessarily mean you should, and likely won't, be able to access all pages within said site.

Current Advisory Group Charge

This Group, while initially convened to support the efforts of the Cloud Scorecard, is now tasked with the unification of the efforts from the Cloud Scorecard as well as the efforts from the Institutional Profiles.  The Advisory Group recognizes the duality of each effort as well as the crossroads of each to meet each other and add additional value in a unified approach.  As such, the Advisory Group duties have been expanded to the following:

  1. Ensure scorecard project, including the cloud scorecard directory, is being implemented in alignment with the community recommendation.
  2. Ensure institutional profiles project is being implemented, in conjunction with SMEs from the associated NET+ Service Advisory Boards, in alignment with community recommendations.
  3. Support evangelization of the cloud scorecard and institutional profiles including the future shared platform to produce each.
  4. Provide Internet2 feedback on directory development and administration.
  5. Provide Internet2 feedback on institutional profile collaboration development and administration.
  6. Provide advice and support for future web applications.
  7. Review feedback from the communities (higher education, research, industry, etc.) on the combined platform and value.
  8. Review recommendations for new questions and modifications to existing questions to the scorecard questionnaire.
  9. Support development of a sustainable contribution model to support the community effort and integrated directory / institutional profile administration.
