“Trust in Data Sharing Ecosystems!”

Paris / Dortmund, Dec 2nd, 2019. Linking the innovative, data-driven business models of international companies and organisations, for example in the AI sector, and the IDS concept for data sovereignty and secure data ecosystems with each other – this is the aim of the IDSA Winterdays from Dec 3rd to 5th in Paris. The European endeavour to anchor the IDS standard as a core element in the Europe-wide cloud infrastructure forms the highly topical framework for this.

Top-class spea­kers will pre­sent the IDS as an indis­pensable ele­ment for data eco­sys­tems, pre­sent the cur­rent sta­tus of the GAIA‑X cloud pro­ject and descri­be the important rela­ti­ons­hip bet­ween the IDS stan­dard for data sov­er­eig­n­ty on the one hand and Euro­pean values on the other. Fur­ther­mo­re, repre­sen­ta­ti­ves from French com­pa­nies and asso­cia­ti­ons exp­lain the high rele­van­ce of an inter­na­tio­nal stan­dard for secu­re data eco­sys­tems for com­pa­nies in Fran­ce and for the French AI stra­te­gy.

“The IDSA brings tog­e­ther indus­try and rese­arch groups to joint­ly defi­ne an frame­work for sov­er­eign data exchan­ge; we belie­ve it will beco­me the core of many inno­va­ti­ve data-dri­ven eco sys­tems” says Ursu­la Mor­gen­stern, CEO of Atos, “hos­ting the first IDSA event out­side of Ger­ma­ny, we are proud to sup­port the inter­na­tio­nal expan­si­on of IDSA and wel­co­me ever­yo­ne who wants to par­ti­ci­pa­te in the jour­ney to data sov­er­eig­n­ty ser­vices.”

“How far the IDS initia­ti­ve has alrea­dy advan­ced, espe­cial­ly whe­re the IDS stan­dard has alrea­dy been adop­ted by the mar­ket, we will show by means of con­cre­te solu­ti­ons and app­li­ca­ti­ons”, IDSA CEO Lars Nagel descri­bes the inter­ac­ti­ve part of the Win­ter­days:

Deut­sche Tele­kom will pre­sent the first ‘IDS_ready’ cer­ti­fied pro­duct, its Data Intel­li­gence Hub; Orbi­ter will demons­tra­te how easy it is to install an IDS Con­nec­tor, which is par­ti­cu­lar­ly important as a data exchan­ge point for main­tai­ning data sov­er­eig­n­ty; Nicos will show the pro­fes­sio­nal­ly imple­men­ted data usa­ge con­trol. In use cases, com­pa­nies such as Erics­son and Star­dog, Thys­sen­krupp and VW, renow­ned rese­arch insti­tu­tes such as Cefriel, Certh, Fraun­ho­fer and TNO will illus­tra­te what smart and legal­ly secu­re busi­ness pro­ces­ses look like.

“The Insti­tut Mines-Télé­com is extre­me­ly plea­sed about this con­cen­tra­ted exchan­ge of ide­as and the deep insights into are­as whe­re data sov­er­eig­n­ty has alrea­dy beco­me rea­li­ty”, says Fran­cis Jutand, Depu­ty Exe­cu­ti­ve Direc­tor of IMT. As co-host of the Win­ter­days and French IDSA hub, the IMT aims to firm­ly anchor the IDS archi­tec­tu­re in Fran­ce. “We see enor­mous poten­ti­al for data-dri­ven busi­ness pro­ces­ses, espe­cial­ly data-inten­si­ve app­li­ca­ti­ons such as AI. In a lec­tu­re, we will the­re­fo­re place the IDS con­cept in the con­text of the French AI stra­te­gy”.
