This is an excellent opportunity for stakeholders active in the cloud computing area, to learn more not only about technical advances in the area, but also about market opportunities as well as legal issues that need to be accounted for when rolling out cloud based services.
iKaaS through its EU Project Manager and the JP Project Coordinator will deliver a webinar about iKaaS, as part of the webinar series organised by the EU-JP centre for Industrial Cooperation.
Remember to register by the 8th of May to find out more!
The European Commission (DG CONNECT, Unit "Cloud and Software") is consulting all interested stakeholders on the future research and innovation challenges in the area of Cloud Computing to be addressed in the forthcoming H2020 LEIT ICT Work Programme 2018-2020.

One of the biggest challenges in our society is to drive the technological progress to a place where everyone feel secure, while leveraging opportunities. Big data and internet of things are trends which will influence and impact the future development of cloud computing systems. Information gathering, processing and computing of Big Data generated from and delivered to highly distributed devices (e.g. sensors and actuators) creates new challenges, especially for services and data hosted and executed across borders including EU and Japan.
These requirements will impact the underlying cloud infrastructure, requiring efficient management of very large sets of globally distributed data that could be produced at very high rates. A multi‐cloud service platform needs to handle all these challenges and appear to the application environment as one uniform platform.
In this sense, iKaaS aims to integrate three big technologic fields (IoT, Big Data and Cloud Computing), to develop a new platform where, while leveraging the power of IoT such as virtualization and real-time processing, and Big Data analysis technics are working to generate knowledge that will be provided to users through applications that will run in a Multi-cloud environment.
This multi-cloud environment is composed by application or business domain clouds, named Local Clouds, which feed with data and knowledge to supra cloud entities that manage and coordinates resources, application deployment, data exchange, etc. in order to empower new business opportunities while preserving security and privacy among the different business domains and political borders.
