At the end of October 2015, the Cloud-Select Industry Group held its annual plenary meeting in Brussels. This unique gathering is an important touching point between the European Commission and key industry bodies within the cloud computing sector.
The meeting allowed Commission officials, cloud service providers and industry thought leaders to take stock of recent European-level initiatives to support cloud services and uptake.
Most of C-SIG’s work takes place within three main working groups. Together, they provide the Commission with industry insights and recommendations around issues, such as service level agreements (SLAs), certification schemes and the development of an industry-wide, data protection code of conduct.
So what has C-SIG and its subgroups been up to over the past year or so?
