Project background – challenges
Internet is more and more used by services and applications as the common communication infrastructure. However, the Internet and Software industry is facing two main challenges. The first one is that Internet is progressively reaching a saturation point in meeting an ever increasing variety of user expectations. The second one is that the increasing complexity of ICT environments (user communities, network heterogeneity, multiplicity of terminals and platforms) is paralysing testing processes for the assessment of Internet-based services at large-scale. Product and business developers must be able to rapidly satisfy and anticipate user requirements while testing and sizing their applications and services, being sure to constantly have the right amount of reactivity with regards to market demands. To address these challenges and support European competitiveness and growth.
TEFIS will provide an open platform to enable the design, dimensioning and user-centric validation of innovative applications and services on top of upcoming Future Internet technologies
