European Standardisation of cloud computing contracts, SLAs and procurement
- Date: Monday, 7th March, 2016
- Location: European Commission, 25 Avenue de Beaulieu Brussels
This workshop offers an opportunity to learn of progress in the standardization of Cloud contracts and SLAs by ISO-liaison body SLALOM and cloud procurement by PICSE, two EC-backed initiatives. Delegates can contribute to the emerging standards and understand how they can use the emerging results within their organisations. The European Open Science Cloud envisages a trusted, open environment for storing, sharing and re-using data and supporting Open Science practices. How can best practice procurement procedures, cloud contracts and SLAs affect the establishment of such environment? Join PICSE (Procurement Innovation for Cloud Services in Europe- www.picse.eu) and SLALOM (Legal & open model terms for cloud SLA and contracts www.slalom-project.eu) and join the debate.
The workshop will consist of two sessions: a morning SLALOM meeting with the EC DIGIT services and selected invitees and afternoon SLALOM/PICSE public workshop. The workshop will be the opportunity to present to public procurers and policy makers the advances made in the cloud procurement and contract field and to establish a set of call for actions for the next 5 years.
Venue: European Commission CNECT unit premises, 25 Avenue de Beaulieu, Room 0/S 1, 1160 Brussels.
