4th June, 2012. EuroCloud Day, held on 23rd May 2012, brought together 14 EU countries and over 1200 attendees which assisted the largest online conference. To carry out this technically demanding task EuroCloud management team has chosen ISL Online, which provided its web conferencing software ISL Groop and supported the event with its tech team.
Neelie Kroes live in ISL Groop web conference followed by 14 EU countries and more than 1200 attendees.
EuroCloud organizations from UK, Italy, Germany, Austria and 10 other European countries all organized local EuroCloud venues and joined the ISL Groop web conference to watch and hear the speeches of the eminent guests, experts in the cloud computing area.
Neelie Kroes, the European Commissioner for Digital Agenda, emphasized the importance of cloud computing and the challenges that the EU strategy in this area is trying to solve. Her speech can be seen in a video recorded by ISL Groop, which allows session recording, so the whole EuroCloud web conference was registered and archived.
"The online event ran as planned. We were satisfied with the way things technically worked and with the way ISL Online technical staff helped us with it. We also had positive feedback from all local EuroCloud organizations, who reported none or only minor technical issues. I would recommend ISL Groop web conference tool to any company organizing similar online events," explains Maurice van der Woude, General Director of EuroCloud Europe.
The EuroCloud online event was also followed and commented on Twitter.
ISL Groop Web Conferencing
ISL Groop is a web-based service where no registration is required. Participants receive their invitation through an email and can join an online meeting by only one click. ISL Groop web conferencing allows audio and video conferencing, screen sharing and sending text messages. The sessions can also be recorded and played back.
Free remote desktop and web conferencing for EuroCloud members
In December 2011 ISL Online, wishing to promote closer integration with EuroCloud members, offered its cloud-based communication tools at no cost to all EuroCloud organisations and their member companies. Interested companies can still sign up for an ISL Online account and start using web conferencing, remote desktop support, remote access and live chat software.
Besides, ISL Online is proposing collaboration to cloud providers and enablers within EuroCloud. ISL Online is willing to provide complete integration of its communication tools into existing cloud services completely free of charge. In this way independent software vendors can add a remote support tool or a live chat to their existing service and increase the market appeal of their basic service.
