SAP & Major Regulatory Issues in Brazil


Published on

Congresso Sociedade Brasileira de Computação CSBC2016 Porto Alegre (Brazil)

Workshop on Cloud Networks & Cloudscape Brazil

Afonso Lamounier Jr. Vice President Government Relations, SAP Latin America and Caribbean, SAP, Brazil

The European Commission, in a recent communication (April 19th), has identified 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) amongst the ICT standardisation priorities for the Digital Single Market (DSM). This session will discuss the emergence of the mobile edge computing paradigm to reduce the latency for processing near the source large quantities of data and the need of the emerging 5G technology to satisfy the requirements of different verticals. Mobile Edge Clouds have the potential to provide an enormous amount of resources, but it raises several research challenges related to the resilience, security, data portability and usage due to the presence of multiple trusted domains, as well as energy consumption of battery powered devices. Large and centralized clouds have been deployed and have shown how this paradigm can greatly improve performance and flexibility while reducing costs. However, there are many issues requiring solutions that are user and context aware, dynamic, and with the capability to handle heterogeneous demands and systems. This is a challenge triggered by the Internet of Things (IoT) scenario, which strongly requires cloud-based solutions that can be dynamically located and managed, on demand and with self-organization capabilities to serve the purposes of different verticals.
