DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURES for RESEARCH 2018 | Serving the user base

The cloud is not enough

Thursday, September 29, 2016 - 14:00


Many providers focus on Infrastructure as a Service offerings for their users. We believe, this is not enough and in the long run not sustainable as a business model e.g. for National Research and Education Networks as well as infrastructure providers for researchers in general. This talk gives a perspective of which specific services for researchers in Switzerland are of interest and we create closely with institutions in a project co-funded by the Swiss government.


Target Audience:

The talk addresses infrastructure providers, centers offering IT-services to researchers in general as well as researchers relying on IT insfrastructure and services for their research as well as funding agencies


Benefits for Audience:

Insight about the needs of the Swiss academic community, approach to build new services, strategic considerations for infrastructure providers.
