EC Consultation: Influence the Cloud Computing Strategy for Europe!


The European Commission is inviting citizens, businesses and other interested stakeholders to take part in an open consultation on cloud computing. Since their introduction, network-based resources have enabled businesses to reduce their IT costs, while citizens are increasingly using services such as webmail.

As part of the consultation, contributions are encouraged on specific issues such as data protection, legal and technical barriers to the development of cloud computing in Europe, and the uptake of cloud services by SMEs. The consultation will be open until August 31 and the results will directly influence a European cloud computing strategy, to be presented by the European Commission in 2012.
