This documents describes the initial FIESTA-IoT sustainability plan. This follows a
tried and tested approach towards sustainability, which is observed in our analysis of existing sustainability plans for experimental facilities and open source software. The approach is based on: firstly identifying what is the key FIESTA-IoT value offering; secondly, how it generates revenues and costs; thirdly, what is the value proposition for the future stakeholders; and fourthly how this can be put into place. The FIESTA-IoT Value Proposition to data consumers is: access to a unique data offering from heterogeneous domains with semantically aligned data, real-time data from real deployments. There is no comparable offering on the market. The FIESTAIoT Value Proposition to data providers is: access to a community of potential data consumers who may be willing to pay for their specific type of data. A series of potential business scenarios has been generated for the FIESTA-IoT facility. These scenarios represent the fundamental options which the consortium has to select from in order to ensure the sustainability of the facility going forward. Initial analysis of the scenarios has identified the pros, cons, caveats and viability of each.
An analysis of the FIESTA-IoT services and tools is presented with the goal of
identifying a federation organisation that best matches the FIESTA-IoT offering.
Further we consider the costs of operating such a facility providing initial evidence of the revenues required to sustain the facility in the long run.
The next steps are to explore these plans with the consortium partners. The process will then re-evaluate open issues, discarding unviable scenarios and moving forward to develop and implement the business plan that will be put into action to sustain the facility at the end of the project

Abstract

This documents describes the initial FIESTA-IoT sustainability plan. This follows a
tried and tested approach towards sustainability, which is observed in our analysis of existing sustainability plans for experimental facilities and open source software. The approach is based on: firstly identifying what is the key FIESTA-IoT value offering; secondly, how it generates revenues and costs; thirdly, what is the value proposition for the future stakeholders; and fourthly how this can be put into place. The FIESTA-IoT Value Proposition to data consumers is: access to a unique data offering from heterogeneous domains with semantically aligned data, real-time data from real deployments. There is no comparable offering on the market. The FIESTAIoT Value Proposition to data providers is: access to a community of potential data consumers who may be willing to pay for their specific type of data. A series of potential business scenarios has been generated for the FIESTA-IoT facility. These scenarios represent the fundamental options which the consortium has to select from in order to ensure the sustainability of the facility going forward. Initial analysis of the scenarios has identified the pros, cons, caveats and viability of each.
An analysis of the FIESTA-IoT services and tools is presented with the goal of
identifying a federation organisation that best matches the FIESTA-IoT offering.
Further we consider the costs of operating such a facility providing initial evidence of the revenues required to sustain the facility in the long run.
The next steps are to explore these plans with the consortium partners. The process will then re-evaluate open issues, discarding unviable scenarios and moving forward to develop and implement the business plan that will be put into action to sustain the facility at the end of the project
