 How can EU enterprises manage this

• An economic crisis or a crisis of values?
• The eve of the semantic economy? An
  interim period?
• The ICT uptake did not take off yet
• Bringing back leadership to Europe
  (attractiveness vs. competitiveness)
• FInES produced a Position Paper to
   –   Analyse the current crisis context
   –   Provide a vision for the future
   –   Support the re-orientation of our cluster

A quiz for the
                 ••• 6
             How do we see the future
           environment of enterprises?

• Continuous Interneting: connected to
  anyone, anywhere, anytime
• Combination of material and immaterial
  set of tools
• Increasing demand for more bandwidth,
  knowledge, services and user
• Innovation rather than optimization
• A virtuous circle of openness and
  increasing returns
• Diversity of continuously evolving
  ecosystems of enterprises in the future

                    What is our vision?

•   From   a business viewpoint
•   From   a policy viewpoint

•   From   philosophical viewpoint

Questions rather
 than answers
              ••• 12
          Is the Internet the Enterprise?

• The Internet becomes the platform through which
  knowledge is manipulated dynamically,
  experienced in the business context and re-
  presented in a radically different way to create
  new value
• The Web blurs the boundaries between the intra
  and extra-muros enterprise domain; collaboration
  becomes rooted in the essence of
• A new participative web, hosting a new wave of
  services, using user-friendly technologies is
  empowering the enterprise of the future
• Plug-and-Play web-based applications become as
  rich as the desktop: it is the emanation of the
  WYSIWYG enterprise

                                      ••• 14
        Impact of this on our domain?

• Next Generation Knowledge Society
• Tackling environmental and energy issues
• Making the future Internet accessible to
• Promoting user-centred products,
  services and tools
• Supporting Future Internet Enterprise
  Systems via standardisation
• A new way of doing business (and
  measuring it)

 Hence a new appropriation of technology

            ••• 16
On Intangibles and intellectual capital

•   Is Knowledge really the fifth freedom?
•   Is the industrial value chain aware that value creation
    is about shaping ideas and exchanging information and
    not about processes and cost savings anymore?
•   What are the emerging patterns of value creation (a
    part from the value chain logic)?
•   How can we describe the new value drivers of
    companies in economic terms (should we develop new
    metrics, a new taxonomy,…)?
•   Is Intellectual capital sufficiently exploited in
•   Are knowledge and competence management the
    unique Intellectual capital?
•   What are the future earnings of companies investing in
    intangible capital?

Questions, not
                 ••• 18
  What could be the potential axes of
                our future research?

• New notions of enterprise and enterprise
  networks (a change of economics?)
• FI Enterprise Systems (how to master
• New Enterprise Interoperability Concept
  (across all FI levels?)
• Standardisation (more is more?)
• Multi-disciplinary research (where is
  science in our technology work)?
• ICT adoption (How to help SMEs?)

     Hand in hand with the CERP-IoT

If the IoT cluster can deliver the
  conditions for "things" to have
  all the requirements for
  security, interoperability and
  streamlined interactions, the
  FInES Cluster should be able to
  deliver ways to develop new
  and innovative services that
  utilise them.
