FinNode Future Session: Systems on Cloud - Cases from Korea and Japan

Time: 5.12.2012 klo 9:00 - 11:30 (Finnish time)
Place: ELY Centres

Are you aware of the silent but big changes in ICT service industry?

ICT innovations have brought a structural change in ubiquitous networked system: i.e. shifting from “system on device” to “system on cloud”. You can experience this change only by putting yourself in the middle of the really advanced IT & network environment.

Korea and Japan are known as countries where the latest technical innovations of IT & network are in place and ready to use. Such buzz words are partly materialized as reality: e.g. IOT, M2M, AToN… There, the key enabler seems to be “Cloud” where features as “mobile” and “Social” are to be integrated.

What happens in Korea or Japan will give you an insight to foresee the future trends of Cloud and related innovations. In this Future Session, we will study case examples of the latest Cloud applications in Korea & Japan and discuss about Finnish approach to the phenomenon. You can find more information about the case examples on the registration site.

The goal of this Future Session is

• to identify the latest trends of cloud: how it is implemented in real life and how it works, by taking innovative case examples of cloud usage in advanced ICT countries of the East Asia: Korea and Japan, and then,
• to consider Finnish approach to this phenomenon by comparing current status and future directional movement of “Cloud” as a key enabler.

Who should attend:

• Visionary thinkers from industry and research who has experience in device and system designing or related business development
• Visionaries looking for new service development based on novel ICT usage

If you want your company to be agile in the changing market also in the future, please join us in the session to hear more!
