On the right side of the game: how open source is making digital laggards catch up

On the right side of the game: how open source is making digital laggards catch up

FIWARE CEO Ulrich Ahle speaks to Graeme Neill about how the Smart Cities for Germany programme is helping the country’s poor track record on digitising services and how the battle for public opinion on open-source has been won.

“He cites the case of India and its 100 Smart Cities program, which launched almost a decade ago. Despite its ambitions, the country came to a realization two years ago that each city has built its own silos. Ahle says: “That wheel has been invented several times and there were only limited synergies between the 100 selected cities. The public funding which was provided for this could have been spent more efficiently.”

Open Source, Open APIs, FIWARE standardized data models, system of systems, are the way forward. All part of Sensative’s Yggio.
