The video is a very short interview with me, as speaker at the workshop, describing the challenges identified and the actions to address them.
The following is a transcript of that interview.
Cloud Computing will play a major role in tomorrow’s economy, first as innovation platform to increase productivity and competitiveness, and secondly as a new service industry that will provide many opportunities for European ICT companies. The workshop has helped identify the main areas of a European Cloud Strategy both to boost adoption of cloud computing and to lead cloud computing research and innovation. The workshop consisted of three different panels.
- The first panel has identified the different aspects that should be addressed to ensure that Europe can play a leading and active role both in using and in enabling cloud computing
- The second panel has explored the different opportunities for innovation and research to help create better clouds and to accelerate its adoption
- The third panel has discussed the needs of standards for interoperability, including a legal framework for international data protection and privacy
