The next iKaaS project meeting will be taking place in AThens, Greece on June 30th to July 1st. The colleagues from Wings ICT Solutions (http://wings-ict-solutions.eu/) are hosting the project partners from Japan, Spain, Germny, Finland, and UK.
About The Project
iKaaS Project Updates
Members of the iKaaS project organised IoTCare 2016 as part of the larger eHealth360 event held in Budapest, Hungary on June 15th and 16th 2016. Detailed info and the programme are available here: http://iotcare.org/2016/show/home
The iKaaS partners will demonstrate some of the key concepts of their platform in an exhibition booth during the EuCNC conference in Athens from June 28th to 30th 2016. Visit us at booth 17.
A study from Tech Pro Research shows how combining IoT with big data is benefiting organizations by helping them see what's coming, spotting potential risks and making better informed decisions.
Stylianos Georgoulas from UniS presented an overview of the iKaaS project during the the Internet of Things Guildford meetup (http://www.meetup.com/Internet-of-Things-Guildford/) on the 17th of February 2015.
The presentation slides can be found below.

One of the biggest challenges in our society is to drive the technological progress to a place where everyone feel secure, while leveraging opportunities. Big data and internet of things are trends which will influence and impact the future development of cloud computing systems. Information gathering, processing and computing of Big Data generated from and delivered to highly distributed devices (e.g. sensors and actuators) creates new challenges, especially for services and data hosted and executed across borders including EU and Japan.
These requirements will impact the underlying cloud infrastructure, requiring efficient management of very large sets of globally distributed data that could be produced at very high rates. A multi‐cloud service platform needs to handle all these challenges and appear to the application environment as one uniform platform.
In this sense, iKaaS aims to integrate three big technologic fields (IoT, Big Data and Cloud Computing), to develop a new platform where, while leveraging the power of IoT such as virtualization and real-time processing, and Big Data analysis technics are working to generate knowledge that will be provided to users through applications that will run in a Multi-cloud environment.
This multi-cloud environment is composed by application or business domain clouds, named Local Clouds, which feed with data and knowledge to supra cloud entities that manage and coordinates resources, application deployment, data exchange, etc. in order to empower new business opportunities while preserving security and privacy among the different business domains and political borders.
