Two years after launching Qatium, we’re happy to share that we’re hard at work on a Software Development Kit (SDK). The goal: to unlock digital water.
Qatium’s SDK will give people the tools they need to customize and extend our open platform in ways that are highly relevant to them and their own use cases. The SDK will allow even casual coders to extend Qatium’s water management platform in a way that works for them — it’s for software developers, utilities, consultants, researchers, students, and anybody who’s interested in developing their own solutions or their own tools or functionalities.
Who can benefit from our SDK?
Qatium’s SDK opens many possibilities for different user groups. Some examples might be:
- You’re a utility, and you want to adapt Qatium’s water management system to your unique work environment because you have very specific needs based on geography, or regulations, or even your own proprietary software you want to connect to Qatium.
- You’re a software vendor, and you want to extend your software so you can better move data back and forth between your software and Qatium’s, so you can leverage the best of the best of both software platforms.
- You’re an engineer or consultant, and you want to automate or improve your own network analyses, result presentations, or data transfer processes to be able to make quicker and better decisions.
- You’re a researcher or academic, and you want to write a bit of code to test out an idea, a new algorithm of real networks, then share your findings with peers and maybe even commercialize your work.
- You’re a casual coder, and you have a small idea you want to experiment with, a small bit of functionality, a modification, or a change you want to explore.
Let’s build the digital water cycle together
Qatium recognizes the limits of a company, that there is a wide range of unique water management situations out there that our team may never think of or challenges Qatium may not be able to develop tools fast enough for. Someone could pick up the SDK and completely change the way Qatium is used, and solve problems that we never originally considered, and we welcome that possibility.
We want to break down traditional boundaries and work in a much more open manner, to really change the way that people interact with water systems and data, so users have much more power in how they use the tools we produce.
The SDK is so exciting because it gives as many users as possible the ability to use their talents to organically grow Qatium’s foundational tool outside the scope of even our own imaginations — and with more and more people involved in an open way of working with water sector software, we can hopefully evolve these tools to address the challenges of the entire water cycle.
