Networked European Software and Services Initiative

NESSI is the European Technology Platform dedicated to Software and Services. Its name stands for the Networked European Software and Services Initiative.
Seizing the transformation opportunity

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is an essential driving force for innovation and a core enabler of economic growth in the coming years. Enterprises in Europe (both private and public sector) are facing significant structural changes and will rely on software and services to support them in adapting effectively.

 This represents a new opportunity for Europe and the NESSI initiative embodies the strategic mechanism through which this opportunity can be seized and exploited globally. Application of innovative technologies will benefit all economic sectors, not just the software and ICT services industry. Globally competitive businesses and efficient public services will benefit all citizens.

 Europe faces a period of potentially profound changes: in social attitudes, economic conditions and the business environment. This makes the ability to evolve continuously essential for the users of services, and therefore also for the technology used to deliver them. Technology must be an enabler of change rather than an inhibitor. Enlargement of the European Union and the changing nature of trade with the rest of the world puts a strong emphasis on a multicultural approach to business. This cannot be simply regarded as the need to use different languages, but rather there is a need to adapt more fully to the ways people behave and communicate in different countries and cultures.
Focusing on services

The main focus of NESSI is that of service. There are many definitions of service used in different contexts. However, all are based on the same principle: a service consumer does not own the service and therefore need not be concerned with all the aspects generally associated with ownership such as infrastructure, technology, integration and maintenance. Instead he/she has only to choose a service which meets his business needs.

Businesses are increasingly concentrating on activities where they can gain a competitive advantage. Supporting capabilities can be obtained as services from specialist providers.
