Cloud Service Brokerage: Key Enabler of the Future European Enterprise Cloud Service Ecosystem

Booth 2, 07/11/2013 (11:00-12:30)

Cloud service brokerage (CSB) has been identified as a key innovation enabler in EU's “roadmap for advanced cloud technologies under H2020”, and rightly so. The future lying ahead is one where IT environments are transformed into a matrix of interwoven infrastructure, platform and application services delivered by multiple providers. To deal with this complexity brokers will become indispensable components of the cloud computing value chain.

The objective of this networking event is to allow European stakeholders who are interested in CSB as a new technology and business model to exchange views on related challenges and opportunities, especially in connection with H2020.

Visitors to the networking booth will:

  • be introduced to the research agenda of the FP7-funded Broker@Cloud project
  • exchange views on major challenges and opportunities for R&D on different forms of CSB
  • meet delegates with common interests relevant to CSB with whom they could collaborate in H2020.

This network session is co-organised by Dr Iraklis Paraskakis SEERC, Greece and Dr Simone Braun, CAS, Germany
