Data Sovereignty in the Manufacturing Industry

How to share sensitive data securely and add value with third parties

Use Case

Our Services

It is well known that data will play an important role in future value creation. However, there has been a lack of suitable concepts for the processing, dissemination, and sovereignty over one's own data treasure. Initiatives like Manufacturing-X are on their way to create these prerequisites - we accompany you on your way into the data economy. Sharing your own data has numerous advantages: networking with your own value chain makes it possible to increase quality, resilience, and efficiency jointly or to smoothly integrate your own services and products into more extensive service or product ecosystems. In this way, data can be used to save costs on the one hand and to leverage innovation potential and create new sources of revenue on the other.

Data Sovereignty in Practice

Your Challenge

Structuring data and making it usable is challenging for companies with different applications and locations. Simply collecting the data, e.g., in a data lake, is a first step, but it also requires a semantic structure, clear governance, and the right infrastructure to ensure actuality and connectivity.

The Vision

The target is to use own data in such a way that processes can be integrated with third parties beyond the own system architecture. At the same time, the legal framework conditions should not be underestimated: From the DSGVO to a legally secure pricing of the data, several requirements need to be considered right from the start. Once set up, this opens immense possibilities.

Our Solution

We accompany you on your way to the sovereign data economy. We are starting with establishing a stable data platform through transparent governance to open and secure interfaces for your partners. In addition, we understand the design and implementation of new business models. We enable hosting in our data centers at German locations, considering the highest cyber security requirements.
