Industrial Data Space Association & Industria Conectada 4.0 First Summit in Málaga

 FIWARE Foundation, Industry4.0  Comments Off on Industrial Data Space Association & Industria Conectada 4.0 First Summit in Málaga
Nov 132017

How do different organizations build a space where data is shared in a decentralized manner, profiting each stakeholder? That is the question the Industrial Data Space Association (IDSA) aims to answer.

The IDSA is working to create such a space, including a variety of actors, from private companies to public institutions, and involving major Industry stakeholders and frontrunners of the evolution of the Industry 4.0 vision. 

Within an interconnected industrial framework, each organization is able to use data provided by any participant, building a peer-to-peer network in order to improve their own production and operational processes. The data can also be shared and used by third parties, and it can be monetized. The common space, built by the IDSA, will make the Data Economy a reality, allowing a free flow of industrial data across borders, maintaining the security, trustworthiness and sovereignty of data.

Born in Germany, the Association is incorporating new players in Europe and Worldwide. Together with its Spanish counterpart, the Industria Conectada 4.0 initiative, it will celebrate a first joint Summit under the umbrella of the FIWARE Tech Summit.

Click here for more information, and join us in Málaga to learn more about the most recent developments of both initiatives, as well as to understand and join the projects that the collaboration between the initiatives is ready to set in motion.

Change The Way You Deliver Services In Your City With CEDUS

Showcasing at the Village at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona from 14-16 November is City Enabler for Digital Urban Services (CEDUS). Championed by EIT Digital and led by Engineering, this FIWARE-based software product allows urban service providers (public and private) and the local governments to actively collaborate to exploit urban data.


Used for crawling and collecting valuable data at urban scale, supporting decision making processes, and allowing the fast delivery of new digital urban services, the benefits are endless. But that isn’t all. CEDUS is open to other platforms through standard APIs, data duplication is avoided, and it’s compliant with the OASC (Open & Agile Smart Cities) principles. No vendor lock-in, no city lock-in.


The solution is currently being tested in the Province of Trento (IT), Municipality of Málaga (ES) and Municipality of Rennes (FR) and the future's looking bright. In 2018, the creators of CEDUS plan to reach Technology Readiness Level 9 and launch it onto the market.


Stay Up-To-Date with FIWARE Developments During SCEWC 2017

 Conference, events, FIWARE Foundation, SmartCities  Comments Off on Stay Up-To-Date with FIWARE Developments During SCEWC 2017
Nov 062017

FIWARE will be present at this year's Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC) to elaborate on our recent developments within the realm of Smart Cities. Quite a lot of things have happened since our presence at SCEWC'16:

All these developments and FIWARE's vision for Smart Cities will be presented during speeches of FIWARE Foundation CEO, Ulrich Ahle, CTO Juanjo Hierro, and COO Stefano De Panfilis. Juanjo will discuss how FIWARE is leading the creation of open de-facto standards in collaboration with relevant bodies like TM Forum or ETSI, and initiatives like OAS (Open and Agile Smart Cities). In Ulrich's panel debate, he will explain how open platforms will enable urban leaders to make cities affordable and sustainable for everyone again. Lastly, during his session, Stefano will talk about context information modelling as the missing enabler to make a city really smart. Bottom line: lots to discuss, and lots to learn.
But that isn't all. Following several preparation workshops along this year, TM Forum and the FIWARE Foundation will jointly launch the "Front-runner Smart Cities" initiative at the SCEWC, targeted to bring a framework under which Cities, together with Smart City platform and application providers, will collaborate towards definition of open standard Common Information Models for Cities (compatible with FIWARE NGSI and therefore adhering to OASC mechanisms) and will materialize the vision of City as a Platform supporting the Data Economy. Work will leverage on results already developed, and cities involved will benefit from high visibility and recognition as leaders of a new Smart Cities era.  Don't miss the "Front-runner Smart Cities and the API Economy" side-event where details on goals, procedures and steps to join this initiative will be explained!
Last but not least, a number of meetups with Spanish and Latam cities already part of the OASC network or willing to join will take place at our stand.  
For more information regarding our activities, with TM Forum and otherwise, during the SCEWC – Check out our Digital Flyer.
