Dataspaces in the United States: Catena-X, Gaia-X, and IDSA

Do you continue just to store data, or are you sharing? Either way, we’d like to invite you to take part in a Catena-X event on June 5th, 2023, in Austin, TX. Catena-X is the world’s first open and collaborative dataspace and ecosystem, launched recently in Europe. Now, leading automakers, their suppliers and service providers are bringing this paradigm-shifting data-sharing system to North America. This event will be your opportunity to talk to the founders and leaders from Catena-X, Gaia-X and the International Data Space Association (IDSA), to understand the importance of dataspaces to business, to experience their capabilities and impact, and enjoy a front-row seat to the launch of the Catena-X Hub in North America.

Catena-X is open for business

Catena-X has successfully launched the controlled beta phase with the first operating company Confinity-X (link), and the first real users and suppliers:

  • It will enable novel applications based on cross-organizational data chains and digital twins for better, more resilient supply chains and more sustainable products.
  • It is NOT a data storage system but rather a data sharing network, which maintains and safeguards your data sovereignty. Imagine: you save on the costs of data storage while extracting value from shared data while also maintaining the power to control rights and access to your data.
  • “Killer” applications are myriad and include pathways toward world-changing supply chains with carbon footprint trackingmaterial traceability, and the realization of true circular economies.

Open technology, common standards

Catena-X is brought to you by a coalition of automakers, tier 1 suppliers, as well as pioneering small and mid-sized firms, vendors and consultants, with a total of more than 150 member companies and counting. It is built on open-source technology in Eclipse pioneered by Gaia-X and IDSA.

The Catena-X event precedes the Intelligent Infrastructure conference in the same venue:
