Paris, March 21 2018 – Atos, the European leader for identity and access management with Evidian software suite, today announces the start of the ENACT project, a pan-European research project led by SINTEF, the Norwegian independent research organization, with the aim of offering complete DevOps support to facilitate the creation and operation of trustworthy Smart IoT Systems (SIS). ENACT involves 11 industrial and academic partners from 6 countries, with a global budget of 4,9 million euros, funded by the H2020 Research and Innovation program.
ENACT will provide an integrated DevOps Framework composed of a set of loosely coupled enablers that can be easily integrated with existing IoT platforms via a plug-in mechanism.
Atos will lead two work packages:
“With ENACT, Atos is once again contributing to a vast European project, which enables advanced research to be carried out to offer the most innovative solutions to its customers. We are very proud to participate to Horizon 2020 and to be working together with renowned industrialists and research institutions. This shows our partners’ trust in Atos and in our leadership position in this field”, says Sébastien Brachet, COO of Evidian , Cybersecurity Products line at Atos. “Our expertise in identity and access management (IAM) allows us to contribute to the excellence of European technology in this field. In return, we foresee a joint effort by the partners to improve the respective offers and, for Atos, considerable progress for future best-in-class products in its IAM suite”.
The DevOps approach 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. ENACT intends to apply and evolve the next generation of DevOps tools and methods to facilitate the development and operation of trustworthy smart IoT applications.
The results of the ENACT project will be beneficial in areas in which trustworthy smart IoT systems are crucial, such as intelligent transports, smart buildings and smart cities, and eHealth.
