Continous Delivery toolkit
ENACT will deliver two enablers that aim at improving the continuous delivery of smart IoT systems, with a specific focus on (i) agile and continuous evolution and (ii) ensuring the proper design of the system before delivery. A particular attention will be given to support the testing of smart IoT systems and the gradual migration from the test to the operation environment.
Agile Operation Toolkit
ENACT will deliver three innovative enablers to significantly reduce the burden of managing and maintaining smart IoT systems. A specific attention will be given (i) to ensure the trustworthiness of such systems and (ii) to automate operation activities as much as possible.
ENACT will deliver a set of enablers addressing specific crosscutting trustworthiness concerns such as ensuring proper robustness, security and privacy of smart IoT systems.
The ENACT consortium has been carefully selected to provide the multidisciplinary competences required to develop the approach. It is made up of 11 partners from six countries, including 5 research institutes and 6 industrial partners. ENACT is coordinated by SINTEF.
SINTEF coordinates and is responsible for the technical management of the project, and lead WP2. In particular, SINTEF contributes to the consortium with model-based techniques and methods for the orchestration, deployment and management of the smart IoT applications.
CA Technologies is responsible for ensuring proper integration of the ENACT enablers within the ENACT Studio (leading WP5). In addition, CA contributes to WP3 (root cause analysis), and will lead T2.4 (test and simulation) and T2.1 (risk-driven management). CA will bring to the project its expertise on agile methods and DevOps practices.
Tecnalia contributes to the project with a twofold role. On the one hand, Tecnalia acts as technology provider in WP4 by leading the design and development of the security and trust mechanisms for smart IoT systems as well as contributing to the integration of these mechanisms in the ENACT Studio. On the other hand, Tecnalia will act as case study provider in WP1 with a smart building case study.
CNRS contributes to WP2 and WP3 with techniques and mechanisms to identify and handle actuation conflicts. CNRS has a long experience in this domain and has applied these techniques to different domains.
UDE leads WP3 and provides the project with mechanisms for building context-aware dynamically adaptive systems and self-adaptation mechanisms. In particular, UDE will provide its expertise in online learning for adaptive systems, and model checking for run-time quality assurance.
Evidian provides its long experience to take a leading role in the dissemination and exploitation management of the project (WP6). Evidian is also a main contributor to WP4 (leading T4.2). In particular, Evidian will contribute to the project making their access control techniques and products context-aware.
Indra has two main roles in the project, on the one hand Indra leads of WP1 and in particular on the requirements and use cases elicitation, linking them with the business issues, and on the other hand as demonstrator provider in the field of ITS solutions, assessing and testing ENACT outcomes in a relevant environment like the Gulbene touristic railway.
TellU AS is a use case provider, and contributes to WP1 (Case Studies & Validation) with a communal care and e-health use case. Tellu has experience with IoT service design and system architecture and implementation for cloud systems and typically work on the whole technology stack, from the sensors and communication protocols to the data processing and analysis and to the presentation of data and the integration with other cloud services.
EDI supports INDRA in all their activities. In particular, for the deployment, tests and demonstration of the developments on a real train in Gulbene Railway.
BOSC contributes to WP1 supporting Indra and other partners particular to ITS case study. BOSC provides access to infrastructure and rolling stock of Gulbene-Aluksne railway for real life testing environment.
ISRAA contributes to WP1 and in particular to the smart building case study. ISRAA represents the end-user point of view to build the requirements for the use-case. ISRAA will validate the results of the project according to the evaluation criteria that will be defined.
