The cloud has become a game-changer in how businesses manage the flow of information, how software and data is distributed, and how people connect to one another. It has also become an enabler for the fast development of big data and data analytics businesses.
Cloud computing has the potential to contribute significantly to European economic growth, while offering a wealth of opportunities to new ventures and established global players alike.
But how can the latest advances in cloud technology and research be turned into sustainable businesses? The 2015 Symposium on the Future of Cloud Computing will examine that question over two days from October 19-20 in the picturesque city of Rennes, France. Organised by EIT Digital, it will be the place to be for the cloud computing community, providing a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs, industry representatives, decision makers, VCs, academics and researchers to get together, where they will:
