Introduction to FI-WARE

  1. 1. Open APIs for Open Minds
  2. 2. FI-WARE is the Core Platform of the Future Internet that eases the creation of innovative applications, lowering the costs and complexity of serving large numbers of users globally and handling data at a large scale. FI-WARE seeks to provide a truly open, public and royalty-free set of open specifications that will allow developers, service providers, enterprises and other organizations to develop products that satisfy their needs while still being open and innovative. FI-WARE will dramatically increase Europe’s Information and Communications Technology competitiveness by introducing an innovative infrastructure that enables cost-effective creation and delivery of versatile digital services, high quality of service and security guarantees.
  3. 3. A working instance of FI-WARE named FI-Lab will be available to developers on the Internet ( The FI-Lab environment will not only be where developers can put FI-WARE at work and materialize their ideas. It will become the pillar of a global Open Innovation Ecosystem bringing attractive incentives to the different stakeholders. Entrepreneurs, Developers • Ability to test with real data • Ability to run trials with real users • Visibility, promotion • Hosting of permanent showcases • Connection to potential customers • Acceleration of product development Application sponsors (business, cities, etc) • Connect to innovators • Put their data at work • Costs saving • Better service to customers • Corporate Reputation FI-WARE Instance Providers • Providing added-value beyond cloud infrastructure • Connecting to entrepreneurs • Innovative Business Models
  4. 4. FI-WARE will be open, based upon a series of elements (called Generic Enablers) which offer reusable and commonly shared functions serving multiple areas of use across various sectors. FI-WARE Generic Enablers are classified into the following main FI-WARE Technical Chapters: Cloud Hosting Internet of Things (IoT) Services Enablement The fundamental layer which provides the computation, storage and network resources on top of which services are provisioned and managed. The bridge where FI services interface and leverage the ubiquity of heterogeneous, resource-constrained devices in the Internet of Things. Data/Context Management  Interface to Networks and Devices (I2ND) The enablers easing access, gathering, processing, publication and analysis of data at large scale, transforming it into valuable knowledge available to applications.” The enablers making it easy to take the most of underlying network infrastructure capabilities. Architecture of Applications / Services Ecosystem and Delivery Framework Security  The framework to co-create, publish, cross-sell and consume applications/services, addressing all business aspects. The mechanisms which ensure that the delivery and usage of services is trustworthy and meets security and privacy requirements. Advanced Middleware and Web-based User Interface A set of enablers that make it easy to incorporate 3D & Augmented Reality capabilities in web-based user interfaces, plus the most efficient backend middleware ever.
