The 4th EURECA workshop -12.05.2016, Dublin, Ireland
The Public Sector is moving to ever more digitisation and e-services to reduce costs under even tighter budgetary constraints. Amid growing concerns of increased energy consumption and the sustainability of IT and data centre facilities, over the past few years, many EU governments have started to push for more consolidation of public sector ICT services under various Cloud initiatives. In December 2015, the Irish Government published an Advice Note: Considering Cloud Services in support of the Public Service ICT strategy.
This event brings together experts to share experiences and discuss various aspects relating to Cloud consolidation and sustainability of data centre products and services. The event is organised under the EURECA project, which is an EU Commission H2020 funded initiative designed to provide tailored solutions to help identify the cost saving opportunities whilst signposting the environmental impact of procurement choices.
The event is suitable for public sector procurement officers, policy makers, ICT managers and practitioners, who will be able to share experiences and learn more about the support they can get from the EU EURECA project.
