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 project's latest results will be presented at the Summer School 2019: Smart Cities for a sustainable energy future–from design to practice. The lecture is entitled "For Smart Cities: Bridge the gap from Design to Operation of Trustworthy Smart IoT Systems with Tools' support". On August 22nd, Phu Nguyen (Research scientist, SINTEF) will give the lecture as part of a two-week summer school for research students.
ENACT advisory board meeting
