CloudOpting assists the Migration of Open Public Services to the Cloud and the Provision of Cloud Infrastructures.

The main objective is to increase the use of cloud computing by public administrations by providing a “plug-and-play” platform where public institutions and government bodies can:

  • migrate existing IT systems in order to deliver online public services,
  • centrally manage operational data and citizen's information within a controlled environment, and
  • allow citizens to develop innovative new services.

It will provide consumer-oriented front-end interfaces and tools, which will be intuitive to operate, resulting in better and faster services. The project will also help the public and private sector create and deliver new services whilst sharing information between them.
