Scenarios for Future Internet Business

There was a clear consensus from the debate at the FIA Valencia Enterprise session that the opportunities of the Future Internet for enterprise are immense, both indirect and direct. Specifically, FI gives Europe a significant opportunity to maximise value for businesses. However, there was a wide spectrum of views on the kinds of business values and business models which would be promising for European businesses and how FI technologies could support and enable them, while acknowledging that combinations of FI technologies are needed to deliver value.

The objective of this session is to debate the potential and merits (and possible drawback) of a wide spectrum of scenarios for the future of businesses on the Internet, taking into account specific enabling FI technologies, in order to help pin-point:

  • The more promising FI technologies and their application for specific businesses
  • How those technologies meet and possibly transform business needs (existing, emerging, blue sky thinking)
  • Paradigms of improvements to existing business as well as radical business transformation
  • Gaps if any between FI priorities and business priorities and expectations and how those gaps may be bridged 

The session is organised by Man-Sze Li, IC Focus (Session Responsible); Stefano De Panfilis, Engineering and EFII; Sergio Gusmeroli, TXT; John Kennedy, Intel; Jean-Dominique Meunier, Technicolor; Julián Seseña, ROSE Vision; and in collaboration with the Future Internet Enterprise Systems (FInES) Cluster of DG INFSO and all interested parties.
