Picture by BasicGov by ul_Marg Definition Cloud Computing Fraunhofer-Institut, Nov 2010 Cloud Computing is a model, which ensures «on-demand» and online access to a shared pool of configurable computing-ressources such as networks, servers, storagesysteme, apps and services. Those can be made available rapid with minimal admininstration effort customized and cost effective.

More power in a few minutes Scalability on demand
Open Access api.geo.admin.ch -> freemium Picture by ul_Marga Access not ownership is where all content is going… (Kevin Kelly) wms.geo.admin.ch -> open geo.admin.ch -> open map.geo.admin.ch -> open
Open Standards Picture by bekathwia It is all about interoperability api.geo.admin.ch -> RESTful, OGC wms.geo.admin.ch -> OGC geo.admin.ch -> all browsers/devices map.geo.admin.ch -> (all) browsers/devices
Open Source Picture by ravages Scalability on demand - innovation - reusable
..and it works! some awards: Picture by swisstopo
Future semantic web – linked data – web of things
