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.

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

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.
