The survey has been launched by the Cloud Standards Coordination (CSC), in collaboration between the European Commission (EC) and ETSI, the European Telecommunication Standards Institute.
CSC Phase 1 took place in 2013 and primarily addressed the Cloud computing standards roadmap. In December 2013 the results were publicly presented in a workshop organized by the EC, the CSC Final Report being available at http://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/en/news/cloud-standards-coordination-final-report .
CSC Phase 2, launched in February 2015, will address some of the issues left open by CSC Phase 1 and has received full support from the EC to do so. This project is undertaken by experts contracted by ETSI.
To support these objectives, CSC Phase 2 has created a survey to collect feedback from the Cloud computing community in terms of needs, objectives, challenges and areas of concerns in typical Cloud computing scenarios, and to evaluate the perceived maturity of Cloud computing standards.
The survey is targeting current and future Cloud customers in the private and public sectors, SMEs as well as large organisations in all vertical sectors. Other stakeholders from the entire Cloud computing eco-system, e.g. Cloud computing providers, are also invited to answer.
A strict privacy/confidentiality policy has been adopted: Answers to this survey will be shared and used only amongst the ETSI CSC Phase 2 experts. Only aggregated results will be published.
