openKONSEQUENZ: Open software for network operators

Specialist article on openKONSEQUENZ in netzpraxis magazine

Initially launched as a consortium, openKONSEQUENZ is slowly but surely developing into a manufacturer-independent software platform for network operators. PTA GmbH has now published a technical article about the open source solution in netzpraxis magazine.

Cooperative instead of vendor lock-in

The aim of openKONSEQUENZ is to provide water and energy network operators with the software they need and to implement standards for open data exchange in order to jointly manage the energy transition and digitalization. The modular and secure software solutions are developed by independent software houses.

This results in a win-win situation for everyone involved. Network operators invest in high-quality open source solutions, while the system houses involved can retain additional customers with good services and consulting.

PTA develops company diary for openKONSEQUENZ

One of the modules already available on the openKONSEQUENZ platform is the company diary developed by PTA. This serves as a central application for documenting all key information and processes of a shift, such as entering or leaving the facilities during operation.

As a member of the cooperative, the PTA believes that openKONSEQUENZ is far from having reached the end of its development. “We have by no means exhausted the potential,” explains Tim Walleyo in the netzpraxis article. You can find out what is planned for the future and how the members of openKONSEQUENZ ensure the quality of the platform in the article in issue 09/2018.
