This newsletter is a publication of the DECIDE project. Its goal is to provide information about the project activities and to showcase the project achievements.

DECIDE: DevOps for trusted, portable and interoperable multi-Cloud applications towards the Digital single market. The main objective is to provide a new generation of multi-cloud service-based software framework, enabling techniques and mechanisms to design, develop and dynamically deploy multi-cloud aware applications in an ecosystem of reliable, interoperable, and legal compliant cloud services. 

In order to demonstrate how the DECIDE framework will provide a new generation of multi-cloud service-based software framework, three case studies are being impemented: Deployment and Monitoring by Arsys, E-health by AIMES and Network Management by Innovati. Works are currently ongoing in all case studies.



The project began in December 2016 with the Kick off meeting in Bilbao where all the partners met and the procedures for achieving the project goals was discussed. Project timelines and milestones were discussed and agreed upon.

In March, all partners were reunited in the 2nd General Assembly of DECIDE project in Berlin.

The last July, all the DECIDE partners participated in the 3rd General Assembly of DECIDE action in Krakow, where an office of Cloud Broker is settled.

All the main open technical, business and communication related issues where discussed and (for some of them) final decisions were made.
