Cloud

Cloud computing, to be discussed at the Assembly in workshop 6, will play a major role in tomorrow’s economy, creating new jobs and growth. It has to be ensured that there will be sufficient supply of cloud computing facilities and services so that European companies of all sizes and government institutions can use these to develop innovative services.

The Commission is preparing a European Cloud Computing Strategy considering demand and supply side concerns: the legal framework, the technical and commercial fundamentals and the market. The strategy has been the subject of extensive consultations, both web-based and face-to-face, throughout 2011. This year, 2012, a Cloud Computing Strategy for Europe will be put on the table making Europe not only cloud-friendly but cloud active.

In this group, we will address some key questions that will be discussed at the Assembly and be included in the Mid-Term Review:

Dear DA12 contributors on Cloud topic.
Last year your inputs were very useful to help shaping the next steps of the Digital Agenda.
A lot has been going on since then: the European Commission issued the Communication "Unleashing the Potential of Cloud Computing in Europe" thus setting the strategy on this topic.
Also the discussion on the new EU Data Protection Package progressed through debate in the Parliament and the focus is now on a key enabler of cloud: fast and reliable broadband.

Taking into consideration the risks associated with Cloud contracts, a set of best practices that assist organizations in defining the best possible DaaS agreement are introduced: http://cloudbestpractices.net/2012/11/04/applying-maas-to-daas/. Best practices help define regulation controls that determine when and how applications can be deployed in the Cloud.

Dear DAA community, I hope debate can go on on this platform and I am interested in keeping it active, with particular reference to the Cloud group that I followed up more closely. With the European Cloud Strategy to be released soon (probably after summer holidays) and the recent publication of the ARTICLE 29 DATA PROTECTION WORKING PARTY Opinion 05/2012 on Cloud Computing, the European effort on Cloud has just begun and it will be value added for Europe to keep the DAA wide, interested and active community alive to continue the collaboration through open and fruitful discussion.

Cloud: From techology push to market recovery

Engberg's picture
Submitted by Engberg on Thu, 2012-07-05 10:33

Looking through the cloud presentations, I cannot help but suggesting that this area is dominated by technology-push and wishfull dreams without sanety checks,

I do not see a single slide depicting how people can remain in control of value chains in cloud - they all focus on tracking, profiling and managing people and processes in cloud.

The consequence being a MASSIVE SHIFT in power structures from people and companies to infrastructure. From the realworld to destabilizing power concentration in the digital space.

Managerial Cloud Challenges of the future; How to remain in control

Bram Spitzer's picture
Submitted by Bram Spitzer on Tue, 2012-06-19 10:39

Within TNO we focus at issues of tomorrow and identified and verified in the market a new challenge: Cloud Hopping

Which (IT) management)) competencies are required to deal with (secondary)cloud migration? How can you determine these and how to measure and improve on these?

These are relevant questions.

As we have seen in the sourcing era, many deals will terminate (before contractual date :)) the next years, how can you as an organisation deal with cloud migration/hopping.

Should Europe build its own cloud technology, or use existing developments?

paul.miller's picture
Submitted by paul.miller on Thu, 2012-04-19 18:04

The biggest public cloud is delivered by Amazon, an American company that delivers its cloud infrastructure through data centres in North and South America, Europe, and Asia.

The biggest open source clouds (Eucalyptus and OpenStack) were originally developed in the United States, and US contributors continue to dominate the code contributions.

But Europe does have plenty of home-grown cloud solutions.

A recent Microsoft Study ( http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/Press/2012/May12/05-14SMBSecuritySur... ) shows that 35 percent of U.S. SMBs surveyed have experienced noticeably higher levels of security since moving to the cloud. In addition, 32 percent say they spend less time worrying about the threat of cyberattacks. U.S. SMBs using the cloud also spend 32 percent less time each week managing security than companies not using the cloud.

What are the most relevant obstacles for Cloud adoption by SMEs?

aserocarmela's picture
Submitted by aserocarmela on Fri, 2012-05-18 20:56

SMEs are continuously more and more aware of the benefits of cloud services for their business.
However they are still largely reluctant in intensive cloud adoption.
As the IDC Study (http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ict/ssai/study-cc_en.html) confirms, there are still several barriers in wide adoption of cloud computing by SMEs in Europe.

- What are the most relevant obstacles (according to the evidence you know) for Cloud adoption by SMEs?
- How are or those obstacles best addressed?

At the recent Cloud Computing World Forum at Earls Court in London, I was interviewed regarding my opinions about cloud, today.

I post it here as I was asked also about Gartner's recent statements about the EU and Cloud technology and I think I provide a sound answer .. I would appreciate any feedback overall and hope I make some sense

"IT is not only the fastest changing industry ever created, it is the first to permeate every corner of global commerce, trading and our non-working lives. Most experience this through new devices, interfaces, facilities and working practices. For example: two years ago there were no iPads, today there are over 40M, and they are changing the nature of the workplace.

The recent report by Greanpeace (http://www.greenpeace.org/international/Global/international/publication...) cast a light on importance of energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources for cloud environments and data centers.

Should policy address such issues in future EU cloud strategy and how ensure a green and sustainable cloud development?

Your ideas on this subject are more than welcome.
