Servicios federados – Apoyando a usuarios, hoy y en el futuro

The technological and ICT possibilities for research have greatly increased and improved over the last decades. With this trend, new challenges have appeared as well, both on the national and international levels. The research users worldwide are facing a whole new set of challenges, due to the technology advancement and the market trends in the ICT offerings. During a requirement gathering activity, taking 3 months, we’ve talked with international research communities in different scientific areas, collecting information about their future plans and the challenges they are facing, or anticipating for the next 5 years. Some common trends have emerged across the different users’ groups, mostly in areas like cloud computing, storage needs and trust and identity. This talk will explain what these challenges and concerns are, and how the R&E Network community can help their users to face them.

Identity and access management, particularly in a federated environment, enables so much: engaging in international research and collaboration, supporting secure access to online materials, and allowing for a greater control over user privacy. This talk will look at the benefits, and challenges, of enabling federated identity in an academic setting, and offer insight into how other regions of the world are taking advantage of federated services to improve local digital service offerings within their communities.
