"The FIBRE testbed is as research facility constructed in the scope of a project funded by the 2010 Brazil-EU Coordinated Call in ICT. The project itself finished in October 2014. In 2015 the Brazilian member institutions took over FIBRE’s legacy infrastructure to start offering the testbed as a service. A new governance model, admission rules, policies and service operation processes had to be created. This presentation will share this experience with the new EU-Brazil coordinated projects."

Michel Drescher

Founder & Director of Cloud Consult Ltd., United Kingdom

"In my decades-long career, I have developed a deep understanding of the technical innards of computing and I©T in general. In many respects, cloud computing is no different than traditional IT, yet so different from it: Unlike, for example, IoT, cloud computing is (primarily) not about technology; it is a true disruption of IT service delivery and business models. Engaging in cloud computing thus requires putting your entire business model to the test, developing the right response for each aspect.
My mission at Cloudscape Brazil is to help you understand how to embrace cloud computing the right way by introducing agile service management into your organisation using FitSM, and driving your business by managing customer experience (Cx) the easy way with Intelligent Linking."
