Cloudscape Brazil 2014

20th October 2014 Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil

Workshop overview

While cloud computing is becoming mainstream in some countries, several barriers still stand in the way to much wider adoption. Cloud-friendly policy measures, ensuring safe and fair contracts and a level playing field for the supply side, as well as more informed consumer choices are essential to build trust in the cloud.  Cloudscape Brazil took a practical look at some of the major barriers to the adoption of cloud computing, exploring pathways for closer collaboration between Brazil and Europe on issues of common interest.

Encouraged by the success of the Cloudscape Europe series, now in its seventh year, the EU Brazil Cloud Connect project rolled-out the first edition of Cloudscape Brazil, within the remit of EUBrazilCloudConnect project on 20 October 2014 in Rio de Janeiro. Cloudscape Brazil set the bar high on serious policy issues around taxation, bandwidth, energy pricing and data protection, which are slowing down cloud adoption in Brazil. High on the agenda was the ambition to shape cloud developments in both Brazil and Europe by bringing insights into current market trends, challenges slowing down mainstream adoption of cloud services and best practices to address them.
