DigiWorld Summit 2008 : The Future of the Internet 30ème édition des Journées Internationales de l'IDATE 19 et 20 novembre 2008 (Le Corum, Montpellier - France) Pays invité : Corée du Sud

DigiWorld Summit 2008 : The Future of the Internet 30ème édition des Journées Internationales de l'IDATE 19

Le DigiWorld Summit 2008, qui se tiendra les 19 et 20 novembre prochain à Montpellier, aura pour thème « The Future of the Internet ». Plus de 1200 participants et 70 exposants sont attendus.

Le DigiWorld Summit dont c’est la 30ème édition, s’est imposé comme une des toutes premières conférences en Europe pour prendre la mesure des bouleversements à l’œuvre dans les secteurs des Mobiles, du Haut Débit, de l’Internet et de la Télévision.

Conçu comme une véritable plate-forme internationale de débats, cette nouvelle édition, dont la Corée du Sud est le pays invité, sera l’occasion d’aborder le thème, lors de sessions plénières et de séminaires spécialisés, de la manière suivante :

Internet constitue le point de convergence et le moteur de la plupart des évolutions et innovations du DigiWorld. La convergence de l'ensemble des flux sur IP et l'explosion des usages sur le Web s'accompagne de nombreuses interrogations sur l'évolution des principes sur lesquels a été conçu le réseau des réseaux :

  • La taille du réseau va changer d'échelle avec l'émergence de l'internet mobile et les perspectives infinies du M2M (l'Internet des objets) qui vont accélérer la migration vers l'IPV6 jusqu'ici très timidement amorcée.
  • Le principe du peering est déstabilisé par la bande passante requise par le téléchargement de fichiers vidéo sur les sites vedettes du web.
  • Le principe d'unicité du traitement des paquets et des flux est remis en cause par l'irruption d'applications synchrones, de fonctions multicast et l'émergence de services premium grands publics ou à caractère professionnel, qui appellent l'introduction de mécanismes de priorité dans la gestion des paquets ou la privatisation de sous-ensembles du Net (IP-VPN).

Ces interrogations s'ajoutent aux grands points en débat dans l'écosystème géopolitique, économique et éthique de l'internet :

  • A qui appartient l'internet ? Qui possède les principaux backbones continentaux et intercontinentaux ? Jusqu'à quel point les excès de capacité, constatés au moment de l'éclatement de la bulle, sont résorbés ? Qui investit dans les Gix, dans les réseaux CDN… ? Comment voit-on évoluer les architectures de hosting, le P2P, ...?
  • Quelles sont les stratégies des grands acteurs en matière d'infrastructure internet ? les architectures de hosting ainsi que les plates-formes matérielles et logicielles de Google, Amazon et Microsoft ? Les priorités des telcos en liaison avec leurs NGN? Les attentes des multinationales dans le cadre de l'évolution de leurs réseaux et services d'entreprise ? L'implication des collectivités locales et des villes dans l'équipement de leurs territoires ?
  • Comment fonctionne et pourrait évoluer la gouvernance de l'Internet (racines du web, établissement des standards) ?
  • Comment mesure-t’on les risques de panne et de piratage sur Internet ?
  • Comment va évoluer le web 2.0 (blogs, UGC, ...) qui dominent les applications et les usages sur le web ? Va-t-on vers une généralisation de systèmes efficaces de DRM ? Jusqu'à quel point les usagers sont, dans la pratique, indifférents aux comportements d'identification et de tracking des acteurs de l'internet ?

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
