  • This will be achieved by the FIspace platform, which is a cloud-based solution for business collaboration.This platform is represented by the big rectangle in the middle, consisting of several components:FIspace store (similar to the Apple App Store or Google Play), which offers a range of apps and services supporting B2B collaborationBecause apps are characterized by simple, lightweight functionalities, this collaboration is supported by a B2B collaboration core that handles object states, event handling, (re-)planning processes, etc.Further embedding and integration is supported by the other layers:System & Data IntegrationSecurity, Privacy and Trust managementAnd an operating environment to make it runningThe apps are planned to be developed through the open call in Phase 2 and large scale expansion in Phase 3. Therefore we develop and offer aSoftware development toolkitFinally, the whole platform is approachable through front-ends, which are typicallycockpit-type of web browser applicationsAll these components will use, and therewith validate, several GEs from FI-Ware and - at the other side – eight trials will validate and demonstrate the FIspace platform
  • These trials are largely a continuation and extension of the pilots that were started in phase 1. They are categorized into three themes:Farming in the cloud (e.g. crop protection information sharing)Intelligent Perishable Goods Logistics (e.g. Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Supply Chain Monitoring)Smart Distribution and Consumption (Import and Export of Consumer Goods)The trials are concentrated at several locations all over Europe, but since most of them concern international supply chains, the actual scope is much larger.All trials use similar functions of the FIspace platform (especially within one theme; as indicated by the connections) and therewith GEs

    1. 1. Future Internet Business Collaboration The FIspace story Krijn J. Poppe LEI Wageningen UR
    2. 2. The business challenge / opportunity • Large organisations mostly have gone digital, with ERP and other systems • But between organisations (and especially with SME) data transfer is often on paper • While more data exchange to monitor business processes in the chain would be welcome FIspace will solve this challenge
    3. 3. Envision that....  Firms could find each other and connect like in social media (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Wordpress)  Also to specify their contracts in a ‘conversation’.  Firms then could start to stream data between each other– like you upload a photo or video on Google+ to one of your ‘circles’  Data: invoices, ‘Internet of Things’ sensor data,  Making a choice in using standards like EDI, XBRL etc. Although compared to Facebook firms might like to have more control on access to their data (possible with web services and access rights),  and do not need storage of their data  Firms could buy apps to work with the data streams and enrich such “open” (and big) data for their own use or for selling advice THAT IS WHAT FIspace WILL DELIVER
    4. 4. Agile formation of business networks: finding & binding before facilitating data exchange  Buyers and sellers of goods and services (‘firms’) can find each other and connect like in social media (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook)  Including social rating with reviews, stars, ‘likes’, etc.  Also to specify their contracts in a ‘conversation’.  Especially of interest to business communities with a lot of dynamics and many small players: creative industry, selfemployed, city food webs, regional construction industry etc.  Industries with a lot of stable relations (e.g. farmers and their cooperatives and government agencies) will be more interested in the options of data sharing (next slides)
    5. 5. Seamless collaboration and data exchange  Firms connected in FIspace can give each other access to their own data  Data:  Administrative: contracts, delivery notes, invoices, etc.  Operational: ‘Internet of Things’ sensor data etc.  Using standards like EDI, XBRL etc.  For Back-end ICT integrators FIspace provides a mapping service for linking the internal systems of firms via standards.  Keeping control on access to their data and specifying conditions of use (possible with web services and access rights),  FIspace does not storage this data
    6. 6. Deployment of Apps and Services  Firms can buy apps to work with the combined data flows of their business partners  From an ‘App Store’ in which ict companies and service providers sell their apps  To enrich such “open” and big data sets for their own use  Or to provide apps for business collaboration (that are not easy build in internal ERP or Management Information Systems)
    7. 7. App developers provide services: Specialised service providers who sell advice can provide apps in the App Store to support their service  e.g. smart spraying advice, an app to run a specific (type of) auction, tracing and tracking app for a food item, calculation dynamic ‘best for’ date, sales prediction model, etc..... For App developers we provide.....  A development toolkit  An eco-system of app developers where you can link and learn  Testing and certification service for apps and  A business community (with critical mass) to extend you market, at a European level (“market place”)  Statistics for market research
    8. 8. Benefits for the government(s) Government as a data user and data provider: interaction with business • There is a lot of data exchange between business and government, certainly in agriculture and food • Governments benefit from using FIspace in exchanging data with business. In this respect B2G collaboration is similar to B2B Government as governing the economy at large.  FIspace creates or strengthens markets for IT platforms, for apps and for data  It lowers transaction costs in doing business, especially for sme  It brings innovation (and economic growth)  It helps to solve public issues like food safety, sustainability etc. with ICT
    9. 9. In conclusion: the benefits for users • FIspace provides an business eco-system of: – Buyers – Sellers – Service / app providers • Who – are able to connect better with each other in the digital world – to exchange data from each other businesses – and can enrich those data with specific services in apps
    10. 10. What are the costs for users of FIspace ?  Depends on the business model the FIspace Operator(s) use  There could be one or several (industry specific) FIspace platform(s)  Like there are several internet browsers like Chrome, IE, Safari  It is most likely that a FIspace platform is run by  an independent industry-organisation (probably with an ICT company as a service provider) on a not-for-profit basis  an ICT company as a commercial venture  Or perhaps: a dominant party in a business network / food chain (e.g. large dairy company, retailer)
    11. 11. How will FIspace be introduced in the market? • FIspace can work for any industry • But is very suited for agriculture and logistics – Internet of things options in FIspace are attractive – Trials have been in those sector: basis for ‘stealth’ introduction in Phase 3 • Reducing transaction costs in business collaboration with dedicated apps should appeal to the large partners in the supply chain (with an ERP) • Apps (on smart phones) for enriching the exchanged data to new information should appeal the sme in the food chain • Getting access to a large (international) market of clients should appeal to the ICT-developers.
    12. 12. How will FIspace be introduced in the market? • We think we can illustrate this proposition (and calculate benefits) for each of the trials. • If we can calculate that in each trial there is a business case that will lead to a willingness to pay yearly e.g. 100.000 euro a year as a fee to the technology provider • There would probably then also be 12 cases outside Fispace (to be found in the Phase 3) • 20 cases = 2 mln euro a year >> should convince a Technology Provider to invest 7 to 10 mln in the generic platform, once the FIspace project is ended (with an alpha release)
    13. 13. The FIspace story for investors: we offer.... • The open source specifications of FIspace • With access to FI-Ware’s Generic Enablers (some IPR issues to be solved ??) • An alpha release of FIspace that has been tested in 8 trials • Access to interested firms and app developers in the 8 trials that want to expand the trials • X projects in the FI-PPP Phase 3 that organise eco-systems of app developers and write X*40 apps for the app store of FIspace
