We address the challenge of enhancing FIWARE-driven collaboration between Europe and Mexico, based on the adoption, deployment and improvement of FIWARE in Mexico. This will be used as a framework to open up new horizons for future cooperation in the ICT domain.
All processes, tools, know-how and incentives will be defined, implemented and enforced to bring new Mexican players into the FIWARE arena, as well as create a sustainable collaborative environment between Europe and Mexico. The process will cultivate the conditions for support the FIWARE activities in Mexico, help it to go beyond the FIWARE Lab, and generate an effective bootstrap of a cohesive and growing innovation FIWARE-driven ecosystem.
The FIWARE platform provides a rather simple yet powerful set of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that ease the development of Smart Applications in multiple vertical sectors. The specifications of these APIs are public and royalty-free. Besides, an open source reference implementation of each of the FIWARE components is publicly available so that multiple FIWARE providers can emerge faster in the market with a low-cost proposition.
Evolve the existing Mexican FIWARE Lab Node related activities towards a broader audience to engage and increase the number of innovators in the overall FIWARE Mexican ecosystem:
to help identify how FIWARE technology can be used to address specific requirements that developers, integrators, innovative services ´and applications´ providers are facing nowadays.
to stimulate uptake and provide confidence in the power of adopting open and standard APIs to develop innovative solutions for different vertical market segments. SMEs will have access to the FIWARE ecosystem with more market opportunities, including partnerships, ventures and increased visibility beyond borders.
A unique set of participatory, co-creative methods and people-oriented facilitation techniques to increase interaction among the events such as Open FIWARE camp MX-EU.
Since the deployment of the FIWARE Lab in Mexico in Oct, 2014, the Lab node operated by INFOTEC is making FIWARE technology available to Mexican developers and entrepreneurs. This process of integration will help Mexico to develop Smart Cities and cope with problems in the fields of safety, energy management, healthcare and logistics Different support programs will help entrepreneurs to develop their FIWARE applications.
Mexico is the first Latin American country to deploy FIWARE. During the event FI-WARE experts will transfer their know-how to INFOTEC engineers so they can operate the first FI-Lab node in Mexico, as well as several presentations and workshops that will show to Mexican entrepreneurs the potential FI-WARE has in domains such as Smart Cities, connection to the Internet of Things or real-time processing and analysis of Big Data.
FIWARE will be attending AND speaking at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona, Spain from 14-16 November. At the event,
FIWARE is proud to have Jose Gonzalez, from FIWARE Mundus to cooperate with FIWARE Mexico and SmartSDK in the reinforcement of FIWARE as a reference platform in the Mexican ecosystem.
The FIWARE Community is thriving at global scale and one of the most significant footprints is the participation at the Global City Teams
An initiative to accelerate the market uptake of FIWARE technologies in Mexico, pioneered by the increasing engagement of stakeholders through specialized training of the most up to date FIWARE technologies, Working Groups and Open FIWARE Camps MX-EU.
