Raluca Lefticaru presented the Broker@Cloud Consortium's overview paper at CrossCloud Brokers, 2014, on 2 December 2014.  CrossCloud Brokers was a workshop co-located with the Usenix Middleware conference in Bordeaux.  The project overview paper: "Advanced service brokerage capabilities as the catalyst for future cloud service ecosystems", authored by Anthony Simons (University of Sheffield), Konstantinos Bratanis, Dimitrios Kourtesis, Iraklis Paraskakis, Simeon Veloudis (South East European Research Centre), Yiannis Verginadis, Gregoris Mentzas (Institute of Communication and Computer Systems), Simone Braun (CAS Software AG) and Alessandro Rossini (SINTEF Oslo), described the rise of Cloud Service Brokers as a natural process, as different vendors start to collaborate within a software ecosystem.  The paper was chosen to motivate the following session, a "Design Charrette" looking at the development of brokerage across the Cloud and Multi-Cloud systems, moderated by Dr Stefan Walraven.
