News and Updates
In Santander, Spain this week for the JCIS Conference? Don't miss our colleague Javier Nieto of Atos presenting CloudWave in a session dedicated to EU R&D projects focused on cloud services, 15:00 CEST on Wednesday, September 16th.
Join us at ESOCC this September 15-17, 2015 in Taormina (Messina), Italy!
The CloudWave and SeaClouds research projects are organizing the workshop "Seamless Adaptive Multi-cloud Management of Service-based Applications" , taking place on September 15 at the venue.
The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum to discuss problems, solutions and perspectives of the ongoing research activities aimed at enabling an efficient and adaptive management of service-based applications across multiple clouds.
May 18th to the 23rd was a busy week for CloudWave and the international cloud engineering community. Both ICSE (International Conference on Software Engineering) and WWW (International World Wide Web Conference) descended up Firenze, Italy, for a week packed with software engineering and Web research. Members of University of Zurich and University of Messina have represented the CloudWave project at both conferences.
A quick reminder from the CloudWave team to check out our first year results! Let's show you where!
CloudWave was happy to be part of the 2015 NetFutures conference held in The Egg, Brussels. NetFutures, which was being held for the first time this year and which is the spiritual successor of the Future Internet Assembly (FIA) conferences of years past, was a vibrant networking and innovation conference. With more than 1000 participants, hailing from startups, established companies, government bodies, and academia, NetFutures 2015 was the largest European conference of its kind.
Together with CloudWatch, PaaSage and EGI, we look at some cutting edge research around cloud monitoring. Catch up on "Monitoring in a Cloud Environment" to see how EU-funded initiatives are advancing future cloud offerings!
Earlier in 2014, we conducted a study on how applications are actually developed for the cloud. In said study we interviewed cloud developers from larger enterprise companies to smaller businesses and startups to cover a broad range of industry development experience. We followed up with a quantitative survey where we gathered approximately 300 responses regarding our initial findings.
CloudWave is now in its second project year and whilst the technical team have been busy developing the prototypes, the business consultants have been working in parallel to assess and assist the eventual uptake of them. Here are some highlights emerging from that work.
We are now approaching the end of our first year (out of three) of CloudWave. In many ways, the first year of a research project the magnitude of CloudWave is always the most difficult. In this blog, I thought I would discuss my views on some of the aspects of first year project management, after having been in this position a good number of times now.
