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 ?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is making everything it touches smarter – smart devices, smart cars and smart cities. And lucky us, we’re just beginning to reap the benefits as we work toward a networked society. However, this technology-driven innovation is impacting more than just individuals. The IoT has an environmental impact as well, which brings us to the theme of this month’s #IoTuesday Twitter chat. The ability to remove inefficiencies through connected objects is driving change throughout every sector, including waste management. BigBelly Solar, located just outside of Boston, is trans...

The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace.
Be Among the First 100 to Attend & Receive a Smart Beacon. The Physical Web is an open web project within the Chrome team at Google. Scott Jenson leads a team that is working to leverage the scalability and openness of the web to talk to smart devices. The Physical Web uses bluetooth low energy beacons to broadcast an URL wirelessly using an open protocol. Nearby devices can find all URLs in the room, rank them and let the user pick one from a list. Each device is, in effect, a gateway to a web page. This unlocks entirely new use cases so devices can offer tiny bits of information or simple i...
Things are being built upon cloud foundations to transform organizations. This CEO Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo, moderated by Roger Strukhoff, Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo conference chair, will address the big issues involving these technologies and, more important, the results they will achieve. How important are public, private, and hybrid cloud to the enterprise? How does one define Big Data? And how is the IoT tying all this together?

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors. The startup had previously raised a €250,000 friend and family round, and had been on track to close a €500,000 seed earlier this year — but received a higher funding offer from a different set of investors, which is the $2.3M round it’s reporting."
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. Over the summer Gartner released its much anticipated annual Hype Cycle report and the big news is that Internet of Things has now replaced Big Data as the most hyped technology. Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. Every other IT news item seems to be about IoT and its implications on the future of digital busines...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The Internet of Things needs an entirely new security model, or does it? Can we save some old and tested controls for the latest emerging and different technology environments? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, will review hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal privacy options and a new risk balance you might not expect.
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, will discuss the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. The presentation will also discuss how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics to discuss are barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold.
