Using FIWARE and Open Source Tech to Fight COVID-19
FIWARE is renowned 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 – grows rapidly as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds across the globe.
Open Source technologies enable health authorities to better track patients, and alert people who have been in contact with them, which could considerably aid the containing of the virus. 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.
The Foundation is supported by a growing global community that shares the vision and efforts of making FIWARE open source technology the best instrument for industries, governments, universities and associations to reach their full potential and scale up their activities in order to make the world a better place.
