FIspace as a collaboration service will offer the following central features:

  • Provisioning of the FIspace service will follow the software-as-a-service delivery model, which means that FIspace services can be accessed anywhere at any time via any device
  • The FIspace service is an open service that can be extended and customized for specific stakeholder demands by integrating domain apps (similar to the iPhone and Android business models)
  • A domain app store facilities the marketing of targeted applications that take advantage of the collaboration and mash up services of the FIspace and its underlying FI-WARE generic enablers
  • A collaboration manager for business-to-business networks that supports the planning and execution of business operations from a global perspective with message-based coordination among the involved business partners
  • Integrated techniques for monitoring and tracking on the basis of data integration from the Internet of Things, including sensor systems and smart item technologies accessible via FI-WARE generic enablers
  • Information integration from legacy and third party systems enabled through a service-based integration layer that is enabled and supported by FI-WARE generic enablers
  • Role-based views for the individual participants in the business networks along with integrated security and privacy management for fine-grained access control to confidential information
