Periodic Reporting for period 2 - DITAS (DITAS: Data-intensive applications Improvement by moving daTA and computation in mixed cloud/fog environmentS)
Reporting period: 2018-07-01 to 2019-12-31
The goal of DITAS is to propose a Cloud Platform to support information logistics for data-intensive applications where data processing does not occur only on cloud resources but also on devices at the edge of the network. The resulting heterogeneous and distributed infrastructure can be easily configured and managed by developers of data-intensive applications through the DITAS toolkit that proposes a common accessibility framework to provide a unified access to the data oblivious of location.
On the non-technical part, a preliminary study of DITAS impact and exploitation possibilities has been performed. The main market needs and requirements have been elicited as an input to the development of the framework.
The initial strategy of communication, dissemination, collaboration, training and standardization activities have been created based on creating visibility, awareness and promotion of DITAS and its expected results. Activities such as set up and maintenance of the project website and social media channels and MarCom materials and tools, papers publications and organisation of workshops were performed.
First definition of the exploitation actions has been identified, based on an internal workshop to collect the potential opportunities identified by all the partners and a joint definition of business scenarios, benefits of DITAS adoption and description of the DITAS exploitation strategy.
According to the results of the activities already carried out and the project results, the dissemination and communication plan for the second iteration of the project is reviewed focusing on establish stakeholders’ interests and creation and promotion of the future DITAS Sustainability Body.
