During the presentation, Sven explored the relevance of leveraging dataspaces for business value creation and forging stronger collaborations. He also introduced our solutions, designed to empower businesses in their dataspace journey:

  • Connect: get connected to a dataspace and unlock the full potential of your data
  • Digital.ID: get verified by government-authorized trust anchors and become a trusted participant in dataspace ecosystems
  • LivingLab: create your own dataspace on your own terms, define your rules and policies, and retain control over your data 

Specifically relevant to the audience was the health sector and how Telekom Data Intelligence Hub fosters international collaboration. 

Data is not enough - your way to a data-driven use case 

In addition to his speech, Sven hosted a workshop, offering a step-by-step guide to dataspaces onboarding. The workshop aimed to give the audience a practical guideline to develop their own use cases or participate in existing dataspaces. Sven used Catena-X as guiding example on how to profit from data sharing in business.
