Sensinov announces the availability of djane, a data sharing open source.

24 may, 2019 - Toulouse, France - Sensinov, a fast growing IoT start-up focusing on interoperability as a service for Smart Buildings and Smart Cities, announced today the initial availability of djane open source project. Djane supports ETSI Industry Specification Group on Context Information Management (ETSI ISG CIM) specifications, referred to as NGSI-LD.

NGSI-LD is an information model, a representation format and an open API intended to address data integration issues when sharing or trading data.

djane is not tied to a particular platform, it is designed to run with virtually any IoT platform for instance. A description of djane and related source code is available under this link:


“Sensinov focuses on interoperability as a service. Our customers are embracing digital transformation and are increasingly looking for ways to expose or trade data. It became very clear for us that current approaches to data integration will not scale and that a specification such as NGSI-LD could help the data market develop and flourish. Recognising the real value is in the data, we decided to make our own implementation of NGSI-LD available as open source, a move that was welcomed by our customers and partners”, declared Mahdi Ben Alaya, CEO of Sensinov.

Christophe Colinet, Smart City Project Manager with Bordeaux Métropole and Vice Chair of the ETSI group specifying NGSI-LD, also declared: “We are working on a number of Smart City applications within Bordeaux Métropole. We concluded that a horizontal and standard-based approach compliant with oneM2M is unique in extending and scaling those deployments while also avoiding lock-in. NGSI-LD provides a nice complement to our oneM2M based deployments in particular to encourage entrepreneurs take part in our citizen-centric journey by leveraging our enriched data and building applications”. Mr Colinet added: “We are also working with Sensinov in the context of the Synchronicity project to showcase in action the combined value propositions of oneM2M and NGSI-LD and support the concepts of Minimal Interoperability Mechanisms (MIM) promoted by Open and Agile Smart cities.
