Why data spaces?

Data spaces offer a solution to the limitations of centralized data storage. They provide scalability, allowing your data ecosystem to grow without constraints. Decentralized data spaces prevent vendor lock-in and ensure data sovereignty, giving you full control over your assets. This approach fosters resilient supply chains by enabling secure data sharing. Discover how data spaces can strengthen digital connections and transform your business.

Evolution of digital collaboration


EDI connections are traditional custom-made connections between two organizations. They are expensive, not scalable, and therefore not reachable for many (SME) companies.


Platforms are much more scalable! Just connect once to a platform and communicate with all its users! However, the main dangers are the strong vendor lock-in and dependency these platforms bring.

Data Spaces

Data spaces use the advantages of platforms and mitigate their disadvantages! Data Spaces are distributed networks of organizations who can collaborate in a data sovereign manner without a man-in-the-middle.

Overall efficiency improvement of data spaces in manufacturing.
