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.

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.  
For more information regarding our activities, with TM Forum and otherwise, during the SCEWC – Check out our Digital Flyer.
