Europe's cloud computing strategy calls for more standardization - services, legal, internet, business issues, european union - Software. The European Cloud Computing Strategy, due to be announced on Friday, will seek to cut through the current jungle of standards in the European Union. The plans, put forward by the European Commission, will also try to establish guidelines for service level agreements in order to build public trust in cloud services.

The Commission admits that setting standards will not be easy. "Currently, individual vendors have an incentive to fight for dominance by locking in their customers, inhibiting standardized, industry-wide approaches," according to Commission's strategy document. The standards that the Commission wants would be voluntary but would apply to all cloud providers, not just to deals with public administrations. Small and medium sized enterprises (SME) - Enterprise and Industry. The European Commission works on broad policy issues affecting entrepreneurship and SMEs across Europe, and assists SMEs through networks and business support measures.

It helps existing and potential entrepreneurs to grow their businesses, giving special attention to women entrepreneurs, crafts and social economy enterprises. The Small Business Act for Europe (SBA) embodies the EU's commitment to SMEs and entrepreneurship. Member States have committed to implementing the SBA alongside the European Commission in an effort to make the EU a better place to do business.

Since SMEs have to be supported at local level, the Commission helps Member States and the regions to develop policies aimed at promoting entrepreneurship , assisting SMEs at all stages of development, and helping them to access global markets . The identification and exchange of good practices are key elements of this policy. Designing NATO Future Capabilities. Allied Command Transformation. Framework For Collaborative Interaction Homepage.
