Berlin, March 18, 2020 – FIWARE Foundation, the non-profit organisation that encourages the adoption of standards and open source technologies for the development of smart solutions on a global scale, proudly welcomes onboard its newest Media Partners and Keystone Sponsor in light of its upcoming Summit, to take place on June 23-24 in Málaga, Spain.

Summit-Partners

In the era of mass media, digital channels play a key role in allowing brands to engage with their audiences in a deeper and meaningful manner. And FIWARE is unarguably making the most of such features by joining forces with just the right partners to deliver curated content focused on smart solutions and Open Source technologies.

Together with its brand new Media Partners that include international magazines, news websites, renowned trade publications and news agencies, FIWARE has launched a long term content marketing strategy aiming to grow its respective audience, further boost its brand credibility as well as jointly working with such publications to deliver compelling content that keeps its readers informed and fully engaged with the 8th FIWARE Global Summit topics as well as other FIWARE-related news.

Partners from India to Spain have teamed up to support the event

Given their distinct audience and the specialised fields they cover, each publisher will have an active role at the FIWARE Global Summit. The new partners include European digital-business magazine T3N, Digital Agency Network (a global network of 500+ marketing and advertising agencies with digital DNA, present in 76 cities worldwide), Tech.eu (a premier source of tech news, data analysis, and market intelligence, with a strong focus on startups), Our Future Water (an organisation bringing together online networks of communities of water specialists with different perspectives), ViviMarbella (a Spanish multilingual web magazine and marketing agency) as well as Polo Nacional de Contenidos Digitales (a digital space accelerating innovation, advanced training and fostering entrepreneurship toward technological initiatives and transmedia projects).

Global reach

As the Summit gains further international traction, with attendees and speakers coming from Argentina to Nepal, Singapore to Canada, so do our partners. Aiming to support the Foundation to disseminate the adoption of Open Source technology on a global level, India-based Circuit Digest (an international community of engineers and makers with nearly 2 million monthly page views and over 600K visitors), and Singapore’s CompassList (a startup research database and media platform providing the best of tech startup intelligence), have also joined as Media Partners.

Hats off

Red Hat Logo

In addition, we are also thrilled to announce that Red Hat has joined the Summit (for the second consecutive time) as a Keystone Sponsor, stressing the relevance of the digital transformation and the promising future for standards and Open Source technology. A global enterprise software company with an Open Source development model, Red Hat offers its customers reliable and high-performance cloud, Linux, management, middleware, mobile, storage and virtualisation technologies, through a predictable and affordable subscription model.

On the news of such crucial partnerships and sponsorship, FIWARE Foundation CMO Cristina Brandtstetter said:

It’s certainly inspiring to be working with such respected news publications as well as Red Hat. Such collaborations allow us to disseminate the need for further adoption of Open Source technology throughout the world. The FIWARE Global Summit is a unique opportunity for developers, universities, private enterprises, public administrations and startupers to fully grasp what the digital future holds in store and the role that each one of us can play. Surely, the crucial dialogue about the current digital transformation can be found on new and inspiring solutions such as the ones showcased at our Summit.

By helping FIWARE to share multiple perspectives and the role of Open Source technology in creating innovative and sustainable economies, such news publications as well as Red Hat shine a light at the – too often – uncharted waters of the digital era.
