2016-07-19 12:55:31 +0200 answered a question What is the proposed process of membership and relevant information important for the enterprises to join FIWARE Foundation

The FIWARE Foundation will be formally established and operative in September 2016. Being part of the FIWARE Foundation is an excellent opportunity to be involved in the various decision processes which will drive the evolution and future of FIWARE. So organisations and individuals who would like to be active players in such an endeavour are invited to join!

The FIWARE Foundation will offer four possibilities for membership: Platinum, Gold, Associate, and Individual membership. For what concerns SMEs I see two of the above possibilities to be of interest: Gold and Individual membership. Gold membership allows organisations to be elected in the Board of Directors (BoD) among the Gold Members representatives, to be an active member of the various Mission Critical Committees if you wish, and to vote in the General Assembly. To be a Gold member an annual fee is requested. The fee, not yet finalised by the interim BoD, is calculated as a very reasonable percentage of the organisation turnover. Individual memebreship allows single persons to participate in the various Mission Critical Committees if they wish, and to vote in the General Assembly. To be an Individual member no annual fee is requested. All membres in the four categories have to sign the FIWARE Code of Conduct already publicly available at https://www.fiware.org/fiware-governa....

It is important to notice that the FIWARE Foundation is completely open and SMEs or individuals, as any other organisations, who would like to join the FIWARE Foundation do not need per se to be already FIWARE users or developers, what it is only requested is that they are committed to pursue the FIWARE Mission and to be an active player in governing the future of FIWARE.

Feel free to ask more clarifications, I'm here happy to help.

Ciao, Stefano

Here are some answers:

"What happens after our FIWARE Accelerator has ended? Can we keep using FIWARE Lab?"
Definitively yes!
The FIWARE Foundation, under creation, will take over the operation and maintenance of FIWARE Lab although not necessarily of all its nodes. Anyhow, the FIWARE Foundation will keep the same policy, i.e. FIWARE Lab usage free of charge for developers using the lab for experimental purposes.
Stay tuned, as in the following couple of weeks public announcements from the FIWARE Foundation will come!

"How much longer will FIWARE Lab exist (and be accessible to us)?"
Given the above, FIWARE Lab will be operational following the interests of its users and stakholders. Current plans say at least end of 2020.

"Are there commercial FIWARE Lab nodes to which we can move our solution once we go commercial? Is there a roadmap/current status of commercial FIWARE infrastructure? If so, where can we find up-to-date information also regarding pricing, conditions, etc.?"
At the moment the only public FIWARE Commercial instance is fiware.eng.it. More FIWARE Commercial instances will come in the very next months. The various instances migth have not only different prices, but also different price policies. Please contact them for further information on the matter.
Please note that such instances are not FIWARE Lab nodes as such, although we are considering the creation of a FIWARE Commercial Instances network.
We plan to have shortly in fiware.org a dedicated page listing all the recognised FIWARE Commercial Instances.

Indeed, everyone is invited to participate in the public consultation. However, the consultation closes on 31st July 2015, so please hurry up as we are eager to get your comments and contributions!
