Last week, the third edition of the Paris Open Source Summit took place in Paris, France. The event hereby replaced two pre-existing events: the Solutions Linux event and the Open World Forum. Paris Open Source is the first European Free and Open source event, aiming to exhibit the technological innovations, the reality and the economic dynamism of its solutions, as well as the societal impacts of this digital sector. The 2017 edition of the event focussed primarily on open innovation. 

Engineering, a FIWARE Foundation Platinum Member, and Knowage, the professional open source suite for modern business analytics over traditional sources and big data systems, both attended the Summit last week. In addition, Alessandro Portosa, Software Engineer and Technical Consultant at Knowage Labs, presented Knowage's contribution to FIWARE with regards to developing the new ecosystem for Smart Applications as part of the Collaborative EU Projects session on December 6th.

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

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.
