Reference Architecture Model for the Industrial Data Space released


Hannover Messe 2017: Sovereign control over data

Industrial Data Space empowers new business models

Sharing and utilizing data together with business partners – a delicate subject for companies that fear losing control over their own data. This may be about to change, however; with the Industrial Data Space, companies can share data while stipulating who is allowed to use it and for what purpose. At the Hannover Messe, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is premiering the reference architecture model for this concept, which will form the basis for many new data-centric business models.
