The ATMOSPHERE platform provides services that can be used to improve the trustworthiness of distributed Big Data applications, as well as facilitate their deployment and execution over a federated cloud infrastructure. These services are designed to make life easier for Software Development Professionals, as well as Cloud Service Providers, Open Source Communities and start-ups, SMEs and IT Vendors in general. In this document we analyse how ATMOSPHERE services have a value taken on their own, but the overall value increases when all the services are combined into the ATMOSPHERE platform.

The value-add of ATMOSPHERE's features combined together is presented through the discussion of a specific international case study that the consortium developed during the execution of the project (section 1). Furthermore, the current stories of adoption of ATMOSPHERE services presented in this document demonstrate the intrinsic value and exploitable potential of each service on its own (section 2), with different assets adopted by different user communities:

  • Industry – 3 cases of adoption by Vodafone & Dell, QUIBIM and SCONE
  • Research projects & research communities – 3 cases of adoption
  • Open Science communities – 3 cases of adoption
  • Clinical Research – 2 cases of adoption

For the same individual assets, the consortium has been able to identify exploitation and sustainability paths to be implemented in the short time frame. This document collects examples of ATMOSPHERE partners or other third party organisations that are going to contribute to the financial sustainability of the assets in the next 3 years (section 3).

The on boarding of 3 ATMOSPHERE assets by the EOSC Marketplace will ensure visibility and access to IM-TOSCA, EC3 and LEMONADE by 2 million EU researchers and innovators across disciplines, and therefore deserves a specific mention in a dedicated section of this document (section 4).

Last but not least, during the project timeframe the ATMOSPHERE partners engaged in a series of knowledge exchange activities, involving students’ exchanges and the publication of papers and publications at international conferences in the areas of cloud computing, distributed systems, dependability and security, with impact in both the scientific and industrial frameworks (section 5). A final section reports on three webinars recently organized which also contributed to the exploitation and dissemination of ATMOSPHERE results towards Cloud service providers, open source communities, Start-ups, SMEs & IT Vendors, Industry and academic researchers in the area of software reliability engineering.
