Many industries are going through a digital transformation (aka Industry 4.0) with open source software changing the way businesses and developers think about and do innovation. Cloud computing is also contributing a great deal to increasing security, flexibility and reliability of ICT systems, and to the promise of connected, innovative solutions that will deeply transform our lives. However, while businesses as well as researchers and developers are generally aware of the importance of security and privacy, intellectual property remains an overlooked area. Historically, this type of disruption has been accompanied by IP disputes. Furthermore, businesses and developers often are not aware of the relevant IP trends in the tech world, especially in a global context. The talk will present important changes in the cloud computing patent landscape that must be taken into account by businesses and developers to secure a smooth digital transformation.
