Hannover, Germany — “There are now as many pieces of digital information as there are stars in the universe.”
That statement from the opening ceremony CeBIT 2015, held earlier this month, means that developers have their work cut out for them. IoT, Big Data and security were major themes at the event, which has successfully refocused itself into a B2B venue and become much stronger as a result. In addition to technical growth, attendees watched history in the making.
At the opening ceremony, representatives from China took the stage, calling for higher degrees of international cooperation and guarantees of data security for every country. Addressing the attendees in a short video speech, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang called for new levels of international cooperation in access to markets, and in protection of intellectual property.
