If you want to learn one of the best cases for interoperability, just remember the early stages of the World Wide Web and Sir Tim Berners-Lee’s intuitions.“From the very beginning, he was clear that if the technology had been proprietary and under his total control, it probably wouldn’t have taken off,” said Gianni Minetti, CEO at Paradox Engineering, a Swiss tech company specialising in Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for open cities and other smart environments. “Today, none of us would buy a laptop or a smartphone which could only connect to a legacy network. It is more or less the same for cities on their smart journey: there isn’t much value in being tied to a single vendor or a proprietary technology.”
