The workshop aims to present a comprehensive overview on regulatory and standardisation activities related to cloud computing, including representative samples of ICT technical specifications developed by fora and consortia as well as recommendations for best practice and technical specifications on monitoring and certifications of cloud computing services.
On 11 December 2013 ETSI and DG Connect are pleased to invite you to the event where the output of the Cloud Standards Coordination will be delivered to the European Commission. Come and meet industry and policy experts, hear about the journey, the findings and the hurdles, the experience built and what it tells to the standards communities, participate in the discussion and help shape the next steps.
Readiness for Cloud Computing in the European Public Sector - the Cloud for Europe project aims to remove the obstacles for cloud adoption, to harmonise the requirements from different public organisations beyond national borders and to establish a digital single market for cloud computing in Europe.
With 5.6 million SMEs in Brazil and the next 3 years being crucial for Brazil with the upcoming World Cup Olympic Games 2016, the provisioning of new digital services between EU & Brazilian Start-ups may be ideal. The CloudWATCH coordinator was invited to speak at this key policy workshop which was held in the context of the regular EU-Brazil Information Society Dialogue (at the level of Secretary of State, Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation).
Linda Strick, Fraunhofer FOKUS gave a presenatation during the session focussing on Filling the identified gaps in Cloud standardization. The talk focussed on CloudWATCH objectives and how the project can accelerate cloud adoption in Europe. Important opportunity to showcase CloudWATCH to OASIS and the event's presetigious participants from government, industry, and academia.
