Falling in a key period for policymaking, with the European Commission and European Parliament elections this spring, The 3rd Annual European Cloud Computing Conference was an opportunity to debate future policy priorities for the Cloud Computing sector.
It explored what the expected market developments in Cloud Computing in the next few years are and how Europe can best exploit the opportunities offered by the Cloud. It also discussed the necessary measures to restore trust in the technology following the PRISM revelations in Summer 2013 and how Europe can become the world cloud trusted region through standards and transparency guidelines. It analysed how cloud Computing solutions can support innovation in the context of policy objectives linked to Horizon2020, and examined how crucial the activities linked to the European Cloud Computing Partnership are in order to drive growth in Europe.
