Industrial Data Spaces


The networking of industrial data rooms and data is another necessary step for the digitalization of companies. Networking offers a range of benefits, such as increased productivity, easier access to data and the implementation of new technologies (e.g. SMART standards), and contributes to more efficient value creation overall. However, these positive developments also come with a number of challenges. The standardization of component interfaces and data security are the main pain points in this context, as cross-industry networking will only be accepted if companies retain control over their data.

The Industry 4.0 concepts developed in Germany and their standardization play a key role in the handling of data. The standardization of data spaces ensures the interoperability of interfaces.
