Modern Computing Alliance Will Focus on Cloud and IT Tools

Modern Computing Alliance logo

Google, Dell, Intel, and a handful of other major tech companies in the IT and cloud computing industries have banded together to form the Modern Computing Alliance, which will tackle joint problems around security, remote work, and other enterprise issues.

The group will initially focus on four areas: performance; security and identity; remote work, productivity and collaboration; and health care. The goal is to pool knowledge and resources toward solving shared problems around how companies perform work in the cloud and the tools they use to do so. The alliance will focus on developing new standards and interoperable technologies that can be used by any company that relies on one of the partners' platforms or products.

The group aims to bring in as many IT professionals as it can to help build a council of experts that can identify problems and figure out ways to solve them. The group intends to share concrete action plans in the first half of 2021.
