Specific topics were application deployment and licensing solutions for the cloud. Several ISVs presented their solutions and strategies; solution providers from I4MS projects talked about their services and solutions; manufacturing SMEs discussed their needs and expectations. The Fortissimo Forum concluded with a panel discussion about HPC cloud, adoption barriers for SMEs and solution concepts.
