PI DX Spotlight: The Secret Sauce to Open Source

As solar-electric vehicle manufacturer Lightyear approaches series production, digital plumber Rob Ferrone will compere as Willem van den Corput reflects on Lightyear’s product development journey so far, and Bas van Goch on the enterprise architecture and data culture underpinning it. Focusing on the challenge of ensuring systems are both ‘right sized’ for now and scalable for the future, Sam Fletcher will explore how the integration of rapidly deployable and comparably inexpensive open-source tools to an off-the-shelf backbone can prove attractive. Both Lightyear’s QRonos BTRS integration and the creation and deployment of an MRP tool for a medical device consortium with be referenced.
