Strategic Goals

Cloud Computing decouples infrastructure providers from application providers. The huge proliferation of web, mobile and machine-to-machine applications is undeniably an effect of this decoupling. Small/medium sized application providers can give vent to the invention of new applications by being free from the burden of maintaining and implementing complex ICT infrastructures; thanks to Cloud Computing they can rent them.

Solutions Developed / Used

Fed4IoT wants to bring the same infrastructure/application decoupling to the world of the Internet of Things, where it is not yet present. In fact, IoT application providers usually exploit their own infrastructure, or Silos, made of their own connected Things.
