“FIWARE brings with it a range of backgrounds and subject matter expertise. The FIWARE model, in my opinion, is a really good way to go. It is simply open, you choose the partners you want to work with, you build the solutions you want, whether they are closed or open, whatever you want. This is really the ecosystem that I believe will be the glue for smart cities.”

Tony Fortenberry

Executive Director

Open Solutions For Government

“While some may view FIWARE as a necessary standard for IoT interoperability and normalized data sharing, all of which are true and necessary, I view FIWARE as an ecosystem blueprint and marketplace for global exchanges of physical and digital goods and services (…) It is incredible to imagine developing a service or solution in North America that can be readily consumed in other parts of the world.”
