Let’s talk all things Smart Industry at the FIWARE Global Summit in Porto on May 8th and 9th. FIWARE, the open source software of choice for building smart solutions, is working on reference architectures and information models to help manufacturing companies in their digital transformation.

FIWARE is focussed on breaking the information silos and unleashing the potential of context data from IoT and different systems, which can be exploited together using Big Data and Artificial Intelligence services on the Cloud to achieve higher degrees of efficiency and automation. It hereby follows a data-driven approach through the decoupling of industrial processes while warranting sovereignty on a strategic asset: data.

Check out some of the highlight from the Smart Industry Track at the upcoming FIWARE Global Summit:

  • Data is driving Industry 4.0. The Smart Industry Track will cover a range of topics such as Data Sovereignty, the 4th Industrial Revolution and Smart and Agile Manufacturing.
  • Discover why open source standards, and notably the FIWARE technologies, are cementing their role as a common ground to architect an International Data Space for industrial applications.
  • Learn about the FIWARE Platform and how it is providing a reference architecture for the connected industry. Understand the role of Context Information Management in Industry 4.0 scenarios.
  • Get familiar with OPC Foundation standards, the Reference Architectural Model Industrie 4.0 (RAMI 4.0) and Industrial Internet Reference Architecture (IIRA) layered databuses, and discover how open connectivity could benefit your smart manufacturing or industrial company applications.
  • Make contact with other industry initiatives and learn about FIWARE-related success stories. Find the right opportunity for you and discover the path to get mentoring, funding and visibility for your Smart Industry project.
