To unleash the full potential of IoT, realising the digital society and flourishing innovations in application domains such as eHealth, smart city, intelligent transport systems, and smart manufacturing, it is critical to facilitate the creation and operation of trustworthy Smart IoT Systems. Since smart IoT systems typically operate in a changing and often unpredictable environment, the ability of these systems to continuously evolve and adapt to their new environment is decisive to ensure and increase their trustworthiness, quality and user experience. The DevOps movement advocates a set of software engineering best practices and tools, to ensure Quality of Service whilst continuously evolving complex systems and foster agility, rapid innovation cycles, and ease of use. Therefore, DevOps has been widely adopted in the software industry. However, there is no complete DevOps support for trustworthy smart IoT systems today.
ENACT is a project funded by the European Union under the H2020 Programme - Objective IOT-03-2017: R&D on IoT integration and platforms. The project consortium is made up of 12 partners from six countries and is coordinated by SINTEF.
The main technical goal of ENACT is to develop novel IoT platform enablers to:
This will be accomplished by evolving current DevOps methods and techniques to support the agile development and operation of smart IoT systems, and provide a set of novel mechanisms to ensure quality assurance and trustworthiness, such as actuation conflict handling, continuous testing and delivery across IoT, edge and cloud spaces and end to end security and privacy management. Through this ENACT will provide a DevOps framework for smart IoT Systems.

The SOCCRATES project is conducting an elaborate series of webinars to share its vision and insights with interested audiences. The first 5 webinars were centered around the SOCCRATES platform components and took place between October 2020 and June 2021. The second series will run until June of 2022 and address results achieved at the (Mnemonic, Vattenfall and Shadowserver) pilot sites.
The European Commission puts a great emphasis on the twin transition to a green and digital economy as the way forward for Europe.
In many sectors, SMEs can use enabling technologies to redesign their operations and become green(er). Standards are fundamental for sustainable technology as they provide reliable, consistent building blocks that can be universally understood and adopted. These building blocks aid in promoting compatibility and interoperability and speed up time-to-market.
