European Cloud Scout : SMEs to navigate to the cloud

10 July 2014, 10:30 - 12:00, Brussels

Understanding Cloud Computing is the first step to use its potential and to foster economic growth and competitiveness. The European Cloud Scout is a novel interactive tool for Managers of SMEs in Europe that provides low-threshold information tailored to their legal, organizational and technical requirements for a successful use of cloud computing.

We will have the pleasure to welcome Mrs Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission and a high-ranking panel to discuss the concept and benefits of a Europe wide Cloud Scout.

Opening Speech: Dr. Christian Illek, CEO DsiN e.V.

Keynote: Neelie Kroes, Vice President, European Commission

One year after the successful launch of the Cloud Scout in Germany, this event will show the benefits of Cloud Computing for thousands of SMEs in Europe. Very easy to use, it takes only 15 Minutes for Managers to gain basic information on legal, technical and organizational issues based on the individual situation of the Scout-User.

The European Cloud Scout will be accessible by the Cloud Watch Hub (CWH). Associations from Austria, Belgium, Finland, Hungary, Spain, UK are participating and other countries are joining to create a European cloud reference point for SMEs to reach out to.
We will be happy to welcome you!
