1 European Cloud Partnership Rainer Zimmermann European Commission Information Society and Media Directorate General Head of Unit Software & Service Architectures and Infrastructures

2 European Cloud Partnership (ECP) Introduction to Cloud Computing Strategy Shaping the CC Landscape What, How and When of the ECP Next Steps

3 European Cloud Strategy Last year VP Neelie Kroes announced in Davos three axes for action: Legal Framework Technical & Commercial (including standardisation) Market This year she has announced the creation of the European Cloud Partnership

4 Public Sector International Policy Cloud for EUROPE and EUROPEANS Legal Framework STIMULATION MEASURES Strategy

5 Objectives Lead Market Principles for data flow, security certification Cloud for EUROPE AND EUROPEANS Single Market R&D, Innovation, pre-commercial procurement, education & awareness

6 European Cloud Partnership Purpose to solve problems caused by fragmentation of markets and legislation in Europe for Cloud Computing. to publish public sector requirements for clouds across Member States, regions or application areas (such as e- health, taxation, social benefit payments). Benefits better quality of demand and supply market with harmonised requirements can be addressed by active cloud providers with an assured user community.

7 Major Cloud challenges Interoperability lock-in risks portability of data, security settings; Privacy & Legal where is my data? whose law applies? who can access it? Governance, control no control of licensing terms, SLA, use of legacy application Security, Dependability data, outages...

9 Question 1 Are European public administrations very different in their requirements from other users? Like the US Government

11 Still Question 1 Are European public administrations very different in their requirements from other users? Like the US Government? Multinational users?

12 Cloud Computing – issues by users Data Security and Traceability Contractual Issues Jurisdiction and Data Protection Interoperability and Standards

15 Major Cloud challenges Interoperability lock-in risks portability of data, security settings; Privacy & Legal where is my data? whose law applies? who can access it? Governance, control no control of licensing terms, SLA, use of legacy application Security, Dependability data, outages...

16 First Conclusion There is a lot of commonality between the issues identified for the European Cloud Strategy and the Thinking of major Users

17 Question 2 What can Administrations do to benefit from the developments in other sectors? Why should I be in?

18 Positions The Cloud Computing Industrial and Market Sectors are just taking shape. The Industrial Players must position themselves in a role with respect to the market.

20 Second Conclusion It takes a Partnership, to balance the different interests both between commercial players and between different public administrations There might be some specificities in Europe

21 European Cloud Partnership (ECP) Introduction to Cloud Computing Stategy Shaping the CC Landscape What, How and When of the ECP Next Steps

22 ECP Organisation The ECP is proposed as a two-tier organisation: "The ECP Organisation A governance level, to be appointed, will report to VP Kroes. "The ECP Office An implementation level consisting of Member State or regional procurement representatives. The implementation level will be called. It will, under the guidance of the Organisation, issue specifications, Requests for Technology or Invitations to Tender. The Office may consult with industrial, academic or other bodies while avoiding conflict of interest.

23 Objectives of the ECP Phase 1 Publish requirements in Cloud Computing Phase 2 Procure proof of concept solutions Phase 3 Procure implementations in order to demonstrate conformance to requirements

24 Roles and Rights Publ. Authorities Suppliers Specifications and Utilisation Implementation and Operation Publ. Authorities Suppliers Specifications and Utilisation Implementation and Operation

25 ECP – Phase 1 EU/Member State Implementations Governance Tender Specifications R&D Specifications Consortia

26 Specifications Specifications go through three Phases: 1. Harmonising Requirements 2. Procure Proof 3. Procure Implementations Text Certified Behaviour Test Suite Standards

27 Phase one (cont) timing: first step in 2012 overall financing: 10 M call in July; Deadline tbc MS discussion on 24th April

28 European Cloud Partnership (ECP) Introduction to Cloud Computing Strategy Shaping the CC Landscape What, How and When of the ECP Next Steps

29 Ensuring Member States or Regional Administrations Commitment Commercial Consortia Composition Competing Solutions Barriers that can be removed by this Partnership Clear path to widely accepted standards European benefit Piloting PCP
