CloudOpting, a European marketplace for digital public services aims to provide the catalyst for enabling and supporting the plethora of benefits of Cloud computing for the public sector. CloudOpting is a Cloud-based platform that enables governments and businesses to procure and deliver digital public services in a seamless manner. The Cloud platform will comprise of a Cloud infrastructure and tools that will assist public administrations in flexibly and effectively migrating their services to the Cloud.
As the CloudOpting platform is already in place, we want to provide you with the opportunity to explore our cloud platform and to engage with our business model which enable providers and local authorities to sell and subscribe to services from across Europe through a series of Hackathons.
The hackathons are for Public Service Providers that want to increase the visibility of their applications and services in an European Marketplace through migrating their services to a single digital store. They will also provide Public Administration (Service Subscribers) with a new insight into Cloud based computing.
The purpose of the hackathon is to increase the applications available in the marketplace, validate the platform and the business model, and to receive feedback from potential customers and providers of CloudOpting. Furthermore, the aim is to increase and spread the knowledge of the business opportunities of this new Public Marketplace.
This Hackathon is the first opportunity to join together and deliver a Single European Market for Public Services.
