STRATEGIC - Service distribution network And Tools for interoperable proGrammable, and UnIfied public Cloud services
Focus: The main goal of the STRATEGIC project is to enable, pilot and evaluate a radical shift in the way public cloud services (and existing on-line services) can be migrated, replicated and reused across different regions, as well as in the way they can be used in the composition of novel services. To this end, the project will systematically study processes and needs associated with the secure and privacy-friendly replication, migration and extension of public cloud services and will accordingly integrate a cloud-based infrastructure (including various tools and techniques) that could successfully address these needs for a number of stakeholders including public bodies, cloud application developers, cloud service providers and ISVs.
The main ICT infrastructure to be integrated in the scope of the project will be the STRATEGIC framework, which will combine/integrate a range of technical developments from background projects (FP7 OPTIMIS, FP7 VENUS-C, FP7 STORK and CIP-PSP SEMIRAMIS) in order to open new horizons in the secure and privacy friendly migration, adaptation, governance and development of public cloud services, notably in terms of e-government services operated and used by public bodies.

Contribute: Take the STRATEGIC Cloud Awareness/Strategy survey: The STRATEGIC project aims at adapting, deploying and evaluating nearly 10 distinct public cloud services for various public bodies (central governments, municipalities, etc.) in several countries around Europe with the participation of nearly 1000 users (citizens & businesses). STRATEGIC will thus strive to ease cloud adoption by public bodies, while also providing tangible business opportunities for cloud developers, service providers and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs).
You can contribute to STRATEGIC by completing this survey which targets to both public and private bodies; public bodies of all different kinds and private bodies working with cloud computing such as cloud services recipients, end users, service providers, developers and software vendors. It is advisable that the questionnaire is answered by a person with sufficient IT knowledge in your organisation such as an IT department manager. Take the survey
