Brief description

Trust-IT organized from 2009 through to 2016 the Cloudscape series, which consisted of annual workshops with high international impact around Cloud Strategies. It provided a practical approach to the latest developments in cloud computing, with attention also to the next generation internet, ICT standards and big data. It looked at the business benefits of cloud computing, from both a provider and user perspective. The excellent networking for policy, industry & scientific stakeholders provided opportunities in a more relaxed, informal setting for participants to make new connections and future collaborations.
The Cloudscape series became a self-sustainable and important boutique event in the cloud calendar and consistently has high quality audiences of 150-200 attendees. Event sponsors included Microsoft, CISCO and VMware although a vendor-neutral and sale-pitch-free agenda has always been maintained.

Our role

Trust-IT spearheaded the high-profile cloudscapeseries.eu in 2009, successfully transforming it into a self-sustained event since 2013. With the support of a distinguished Programme Committee, Cloudscape attracts movers and shakers from across the globe. Experts offer insights into current and future directions, European funding and international policy dialogue. A key feature is the Demo Zone showcasing exciting new cloud-based products and services.
Trust-IT is also the driving force behind Cloudscape Brazil I and II (2014 and 2015) organised through the EU Brazil Cloud Connect project and subsequently through the Atmosphere project.
