    Startup Companies
    IT Companies
    Service Providers

R&D centers aiming to promote knowledge transfer and IT users, particularly
    Users and Service Consumers, including Academic Institutions
    Researchers and Academic Developers

Why attend?
Service providers will be able to show how services will be deployed and offered to the clients.R&D centers, researchers and developers will be able to put on display their results and discuss issues and solutions related with Cloud Computing technologies

Companies will have the opportunity to understand how their data is being protected in the Cloud, how they can move from one provider to another, how they will be able to migrate from the current scenario to a Cloud-based one, in a planed and structured way; and most important, how other companies are already taking benefits from Cloud Computing and its Ecosystem.

Users will have the possibility to evaluate the proposed solutions based on their needs and the “simplicity criteria”: complex and unfocused solutions are not Cloud Computing.
