Future Internet Congress 2014


Digitisation is more than just a technology theme – it influences work culture and corporate culture, opens up new perspectives for enterpreneurship, drives economic development, and can help improve the quality of life of each and every one of us.

The basis for all innovations in the future internet is data, the raw material of the future. Large amounts of data accumulate from commercial firms, road traffic, energy suppliers and private users. Big Data is now already offering new possibilities for evaluating these data, with the attendant opportunities and risks for both companies and ordinary citizens.

• How can data be managed in such a way as to benefit the economy and society, and how can processes be organised more efficiently?
• How can smart and intelligent technologies be used to create new business models and innovative start-ups?
• What opportunities for new and innovative business models in the IT industry can be provided more especially by the demand for secure IT solutions?
• How can digital progress be future-proofed and self-determined?
• Big Data opens up opportunities and possibilities, but what issues does it raise with regard to IT security and network policy? The real-time aggregation and efficient analysis of data presents challenges for the protection of business-related information and the privacy of citizens.
