Day 1 – Personal Cloud as a business opportunity for enterprises
Established businesses are being challenged by new players who own a lot of personal data. The Personal Cloud approach can change that and help enterprises to challenge the Google and Facebooks of the world. Cozy Cloud is leading the charge.
Personal data is valuable when it is used, analyzed and connected with other data. Currently dominant model for cloud services is that users send their personal information to the cloud where it is stored and analyzed. This centralized model has several well known privacy and security related downsides and it tends to accumulate business benefits to only few big data giants. The world needs cloud solutions that enable users to have control over their data.
Personal cloud approach turns this model around – organizations can use personal data at its source (the individual) but without having a direct access to the data. The organization algorithm is sand-boxed in the personal cloud of the individual. It can access all the required data but can only send to the organization the results that the individual has agreed to share.
The Cozy Cloud executive team (Benjamin André, CEO and Tristan Nitot, CPO), along with a MAIF representative will run a practical workshop on the experiences and use cases of personal cloud. Come and learn!
Who should Attend?
CMOs, CEOs, CDOs on others who want their company to offer innovative data-based services without having to collect all the personal data to do so.
What will you learn?
You will see how MAIF (French insurer) plans to use the personal cloud approach, based on Cozy software, to disrupt the companies that could disrupt its business. You will discuss with executives that have been working on such plans in order to see how your business can benefit from the personal cloud approach.
About Cozy Cloud
Cozy is a self-hosted, extensible, open source, private cloud platform. Simplicity, user-friendliness, and flexibility are the cornerstones of Cozy’s design and philosophy. As such, Cozy makes the personal server as simple as a smartphone. While Cozy offers native apps for managing common tasks like sharing files, synchronizing photos, managing calendars, and working with emails, the platform is built to aggregate, manage, and analyze personal data coming from multiple sources and services. This functionality has the potential to transform Cozy from a personal cloud server to a powerful platform for storing and working with personal data.
