Tips for "go to market" strategies

European projects face a number of challenges when defining and implementing their exploitation plans. To define the right route to market, projects need a proper understanding of the cloud market and supply chains within it. Projects not only need to start planning early, but also plot their outputs as the project evolves.

This section looks at how projects can plan exploitation activities right from the beginning of the project and gives a set of best practices from current and past projects.

Market Technology Readiness Level (MTRL) in a nutshell

The Market & Technology Readiness Level (“MTRL”) framework aims to provide decision makers with a holistic view of a project’s maturity in a simple way - with a single score. It offers decision makers a faster way to assess, measure and support technology projects.

 

COLA – Cloud Orchestration at the Level of Application

The COLA project develops a toolkit, MiCADO, that aims to solve the cross-domain problem of satisfying dynamic demand side consumption with elasticity on the supply side. CloudWATCH2 assessed the COLA project in June 2017.

MUSA - Multi-Cloud Secure Applications

"The CloudWATCH MTRLT training was vital in helping MUSA to understand that the project solution was made of services (and products) that target different markets and to realise the importance of communicating the services to these markets.”

A brief refresher on Technology Readiness Levels (TRL)

In the context of EC Projects traditionally focus on the advancement of technical maturity of the topic at hand, Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) is naturally an important measure of progress for EC funded projects.

The path to exploitation and sustainability

European projects face a number of challenges when defining and implementing their exploitation plans. To define the right route to market, projects need a proper understanding of the cloud market and supply chains within it. Projects not only need to start planning early, but also plot their outputs as the project evolves.

ARTIST – The ARTIST Club

The main aim of the ARTIST Club is to promote and extend ARTIST’s outcomes, namely the open source tools, the ARTIST approach and the methodology. The ARTIST Club is governed by a legal contract, signed by most of ARTIST partners, who have already defined, and agreed, a roadmap for both upcoming marketing and technical related activities in order to keep the ARTIST results available to the community as well as sustainable.

ClouT - Cloud of Things for empowering the citizen clout in smart cities

ClouT is a collaborative Europe – Japan project that has developed a smart city platform which benefits from the latest advances in Cloud Computing and IoT domains. The ClouT platform provides the capability to acquire and manage data coming from heterogeneous sources in quasi real-time and offers a set of platform level tools and services aiming at facilitating IoT application development and deployment.

The S-Case exploitation plan - From roots to fruits

S-CASE aspires to greatly boost software building productivity by simplifying the development process. Use of S-CASE allows a front-end developer to easily build fully functional web-applications by implementing the back-end functionality as well. S-CASE minimizes time-to-market and maximizes throughput for any given software project.
