How FIWARE Open Source Technology Can Make a Difference in Reacting Ad-hoc to Extreme Situations



FIWARE is known for its ability and speed to address urgent challenges and the needs of society, companies and public administrations. The need for ready-to-use solutions, based on Open Source and open standards principles – to help automate data sharing – continues to grow rapidly. This has, once again, become evident during the current COVID-19 pandemic. More and more sharing tools are available, driven by Open Source principles, allowing relevant parties to access existing solutions as well as build on top of widely available ‘off the shelf’ solutions. Moreover, these days are also a test case for data safety and cybersecurity, especially when handling health and personal data. Following Open Source principles, FIWARE solutions enjoy an extraordinary level of trust.
