Dear Reader,

This is the last Cloud4all newsletter. Just when things started getting really exciting. This year we have been polishing the core components of Cloud4all, doing our last evaluation, presenting the Project in many diverse fora and paving the way for a bright future.
But this newsletter is not just a farewell, Prosperity4All continues and we will expand the GPII in Europe. We are working on setting the components that enable a new ecosystem to grow. An ecosystem that is accessible to people with disabilities, senior citizens and others with special needs. In the nearby future, we will have the Unified Listing ready and more prototypes will be coming soon. Additionally, the GPII has received in the United States a 20 million dollar federal grant to roll out the first operational version of the GPII in a large-scale pilot test (GPII-APCP). The first two years of the grant will be devoted to creating a commercial grade version of the cloud-based system, working with IBM and Microsoft as industry partners. During the last three years, the technology will be deployed to an estimated 15,000 users – and will include a test mounting the system at Fraunhofer as well.Cloud4all is ending, but the GPII continues based on the work done in this Project. Thanks to all the C4A team.Enjoy our joint C4A and P4A newsletter!

Ortega, M. Peissner and G. Vanderheiden
