        Addressing IT knowledge gaps 30m

        HIFIS's task is to provide seemless consultant and cloud services to domain scientists within and also outside Helmholtz. However, in many cases, scientists are not aware of - and more often have no incentive to dig into - best practices of software engineering and cloud services.

        We'd like to get your ideas on addressing this "IT knowledge gap" to foster convergence of scientist's demands and IT services.

        Speaker: Uwe Jandt (DESY)

        User-oriented Cloud Portfolio 30m

        The service portfolio of the Helmholtz cloud is continuously being developed. In the future, the service selection will forster user's requirements and introduce processes and incentives to provide new services, if strong demand can be identified.

        • How can a close contact to the user be achieved?
        • Which processes would be conceivable?
        • How to define weighting criteria that evaluate the benefit to the user?
