For Developers

Netzlink and FIWARE for up-to-date developers

Very often, a lot of time goes by before an idea is eventually turned into a finished application. What if there was an extremely fast way to develop apps? If you could simply work with ready-to-use modules and interfaces when developing?

That is where FIWARE comes into play, offering both an extended, OpenStack-based cloud environment and a comprehensive range of open APIs. That makes accessing the Internet of Things (IoT) and processing and analyzing big data a lot easier. And the best thing is that there is no vendor lock-in! Why should you partner up with Netzlink? That is quite simple: We provide excellent 24/7 service and offer test resources to interested developers, so that they can try things out free of charge.


The use of tried and tested, monitored, and, most of all, the same components across different projects makes development work significantly easier and faster. Be it towards each other or towards external components: Components' interfaces are standardized and already prepared for the purposes of collaboration and intercommunication. Standard data models simplify the transfer of applications to other domains.

But, all technical features aside, every developer also benefits from (inter)national networking within the FIWARE community. Apps, data, market and sales – exchanging thoughts on these topics with other community members is helpful to many, and it often makes entering the market or finding new partners a lot easier. When it comes to calls for tenders, the community is an ace up your sleeve, too, because it unites people who share the same goals. Thanks to those partners, you will not have to face the (often very lengthy) tendering procedures alone.

Good to know: FIWARE is the recommended platform for the promotion of European solutions, and, as an EU-funded project, it can be an extremely useful door opener.
