EuroCloud Expands Quickly

The European Authorities do not currently recognize the European Cloud Computing industry

Kevin Jackson's Upcoming Session at 5th Cloud Expo

Last October I introduced EuroCloud as a pan-European business network with the goal of promoting European use of cloud computing.

In the intervening three months, the organization has grown to include representation from 16 countries with four additional ones in the pipeline! According to Bernd Becker, an Eurocloud executive, the organization has experienced strong enthusiastic support.

Officially founded in Paris on Jan 29th, 2010, EuroCloud promotes SaaS and Cloud services across Europe. Drivers for the creation of this group include:

  • Europe has a fast growing SaaS and Cloud Computing industry, but each country is currently operating separately with few contacts in other European countries.
  • National SaaS vendors are growing and are looking to build European and international relationships through business and technological partnerships.
  • The European Authorities do not currently recognize the European Cloud Computing industry, which is an industry that can help stimulate the economic and technological environment to promote new Cloud Computing industries; and
  • Cloud Computing implies application integration into an Application-Oriented Ecosystem. Developing new application partnerships, both European and worldwide represents the next crucial step.

As an organizing tenet, EuroCloud relies on a two-level framework including respect to local cultures along with the will to promote a real European spirit.
