Opportunities to Learn More about the Context Broker as a CEF Building Block

Oct 22, 2018Ecosystem, Tech

Discover the great potential of the Context Broker, which implements the open standard to manage context information, hereby fulfilling the needs of public administrations and private companies. 

In August 2018, the Connecting European Facility (CEF) Programme successfully went live with the Context Broker Building Block. The Context Broker is a core component of the FIWARE platform. The CEF Work Programme 2018 aims to contribute to the development of economic growth and the Digital Single Market in Europe.

The Context Broker, which is able to handle context information on a large scale by implementing standard REST APIs, has been added to the European Data Portal and its core service platform as a new functionality. This allows the European Data Model and EU Member States to collect, manage, use, and share data.

By being part of the CEF Work Programme 2018, the FIWARE Orion Context Broker achieves a new milestone within its path towards becoming a global standard for large scale contextual information management. Public administration, as well as private companies, will be involved in this revolutionary way to manage context information.
