Data as a strategic resource for Data Ecosystems
Wherever artificial intelligence and distributed value chains significantly influence the success of companies, immense volumes of data need to be managed productively and tactically. This is because data are no longer a byproduct of service provision as such for the industry, but increasingly constitute the core business. Which is why, today more than ever, data are the strategic resource for digitizing the economy. Using this valuable raw material to best advantage has to be the goal of business ecosystems.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Software and Systems Engineering ISST sets standards for the (controlled) sharing of data. It researches the value and the competent handling of data. Along with numerous partners in politics and industry, the institute with the “International Data Space” establishes the macroeconomic framework for the use of data, but also develops individual solutions for specific companies. Here the institute focuses on four fields of application: logistics, the data economy, automotive, and healthcare.
