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.

On behalf of the FIWARE Foundation we'd like to thank EVERYONE who attended and contributed to the FIWARE Tech Summit in Málaga for coming, and for showing their support. With the collaboration of Promálaga and the City Council, and the support of the Regional Government and initiatives already present at local and regional levels, FIWARE returned to where its first Summit took place.

Each Summit has been an opportunity to meet and greet people that are working with us, often from far away; to watch the Community expand and the Platform evolve. With a special focus on our developers, the recent Tech Summit has shown how the knowledge and the questions surrounding FIWARE Open Source components have gotten more and more insightful.

FACEBOOK_1200x630_FIWARE_dataConsidering that roughly a year ago a lot of the attendees received their first introduction to the technology, the recent gathering in Málaga has proved that FIWARE has come a long way. Today, it is being used to create smart apps, to manage data and city services, to start enhancing intelligent industrial and food production, and to connect to the IoT on a daily basis. Now, those novice developers are becoming the new masters, the tech experts that will continue sharing the message and improving the Platform, deploying new functionalities for and from it, positioning FIWARE as the driving force towards the interconnected, open future that it is designed to be.

Today, we can look back on a successful event: 2 days with 95 speakers and 21 exhibitors showcasing. Over the course of the 2-day event, the 415 attendees had the opportunity to attend 10 workshops and tech sessions, as well as 5 vertical tracks and interesting business sessions. We are growing, Summit after Summit, increasing attendance by more than 30%, and looking forward to presenting new collaborations, varied activities and their most interesting contents, whilst educating and entertaining at the same time.

The FIWARE Tech Summit hosted the 1st Spanish Industrial Data Space Meeting on behalf of the Industrial Data Space Association and Industria Conectada 4.0 initiative, as well as a special track dedicated to Smart Cities. Last but certainly not least, winners of the FIWARE Zone Challenge, the IMPACT Accelerator Startup Pitch Challenge, and the GCTC Challenge were announced! 

During the opening press conference, the City Mayor, D. Francisco de la Torre, announced the commitment between the FIWARE Foundation and the City of Málaga, to become the official headquarters of the FIWARE Tech Summit for the next 5 years. He pointed out how this event is proof of a mutual interest and support between the two parties. He also emphasized the importance of the technology and its innovative potential for urban development and the improvement of the quality of life of citizens, to overcome present and future societal and economic challenges. After that, the Mayor and the other public representatives at the press conference joined organizers and participants and visited the event, showing interest in the ‘Powered by FIWARE’ smart solutions present at the exhibition area.

The FIWARE Tech Summit may have come to an end but fear not, we already have our next event lined up for you! We therefore look forward to inviting you ALL to our next Summit in Porto, from 8-9 May, 2018.

FIWARE In Mexico: A Reality

The FIWARE Community is getting more and more global everyday, but it is worth mentioning that Mexico is a pioneering region in the expansion of the initiative. Jose Gonzalez, from FIWARE Mundus, has recently visited the country to cooperate with FIWARE Mexico and SmartSDK in the reinforcement of FIWARE as a reference platform in the Mexican ecosystem.
  • Within the scope of the Research and Education Working Group coordinated by CUDI in the project FIWARE Mexico, a workshop was organized in the City of Guadalajara as part of the ANUIES-TIC event. This one-day activity helped to introduce FIWARE to several CIOs from Mexican universities and research centres, highlighting the benefits the open platform brings to experimentation, education and entrepreneurship. The workshop was complemented with a practical session on the use of the Orion Context Broker.
  • As part of the 2nd International Conference on Smart Data and Smart Cities hosted in the City of Puebla, Tecnologico de Monterrey organized a workshop aimed at developers, integrators and hardware and software vendors interested in generating innovative solutions using FIWARE. Upon completion of the training, participants were able to understand the potential of the FIWARE platform and gain theoretical and practical skills to develop cloud computing and Internet applications.
FIWARE Mexico addresses the challenge of enhancing FIWARE-driven collaboration between Europe and Mexico, based on the adoption, deployment and improvement of FIWARE in Mexico. This will be used as a framework to open up new horizons for future cooperation in the ICT domain. The process will cultivate the conditions to support the FIWARE activities in Mexico, help it to go beyond the FIWARE Lab, and generate an effective bootstrap of a cohesive and growing innovation FIWARE-driven ecosystem.
 
SmartSDK is a FIWARE initiative that provides ready-to-use bundles for the creation of Smart Services. All components adopted are based on FIWARE and add-ons are contributed to the FIWARE Community as Open Source. SmartSDK provides a set of reusable and cloud-native architecture patterns to simplify the development of Smart Services.
