Data exchange between companies

Connected Data Spaces

Data-driven business models, the move towards automation and the pressures of regulatory compliance often necessitate the sharing of data across organisational boundaries. Data spaces are one of the keys to achieving simple, secure and self-determined data sharing. We work together with you to build a data space that suits your needs.

 

 

What exactly are data spaces?

Data spaces are based on a set of common standards covering technical, organisational and legal aspects – complemented by a set of shared values. These standards shape the data space and ensure compliance with legal requirements:

 

  • Data sharing: Providing and receiving data in a secure and regulated manner.
  • Governance: Mechanisms that are accepted by all participants and ensure smooth sharing of data.
  • Data sovereignty: Control over your own data fosters trust.
  • Openness: These principles promote diversity and active participation while avoiding dependencies.
  • Interoperability: Different data spaces can interact with each other based on open standards, enabling better connectivity.

Data space use cases

  • New business models
    Providing and analysing data in data spaces is essential for developing innovative services and forward-looking business models.
  • CO2
    Companies can work together to analyse their carbon footprint in supply chains and then take measures to reduce it.

 

  • Circular economy
    Digital twins improve collaboration between OEMs and suppliers, helping to optimise resource cycles in the supply chain.
  • Traceability
    Traceability in the value chain sustainably improves resilience and quality management, which is crucial to effective supply chain resilience.

The diversity of data spaces

There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to data spaces. Industry-specific data spaces have evolved due to the diversity of use cases, standards and legal bases:
