IDS meet Industrial Data Excellence

IDSA’s New Member DIMECC Brings Together Two Initiatives

The Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces Asso­cia­ti­on (IDSA) wel­co­med DIMECC Ltd, a Fin­land-based open inno­va­ti­on plat­form com­pa­ny, as a new mem­ber to the Asso­cia­ti­on. DIMECC will sup­port the IDSA in deve­lo­ping a trust­worthy data infra­st­ruc­tu­re in Euro­pe.

“We’re exci­ted to expand IDSA with a new mem­ber who will bring tech­no­lo­gi­cal exper­ti­se and insights of dif­fe­rent indus­try sec­tors in Fin­land and other Nor­dic coun­tries to our work,” said Lars Nagel, CEO of IDSA. “And we high­ly appre­cia­te DIMECC’s efforts to pro­mo­te sov­er­eign data sharing in manu­fac­tu­ring net­works bet­ween mul­ti­ple part­ners.”

In Sep­tem­ber 2019, DIMECC’s Intel­li­gent Indus­try eco­sys­tem laun­ched the InDEx (Indus­tri­al Data Excel­lence) pro­gram to crea­te a data exchan­ge com­mu­ni­ty and a com­mon indus­tri­al data space in Fin­land. “As data sharing is a stra­te­gic advan­ta­ge for a gro­wing num­ber of com­pa­nies and models are not yet ful­ly ali­gned, we belie­ve it is important to be part of this pro­cess,” says Kari Mura­nen, Seni­or Eco­sys­tem Lead at DIMECC.

IDS tech­no­lo­gy and archi­tec­tu­re alrea­dy play a major role in the InDEx pro­gram. “We belie­ve that stan­dar­di­z­a­ti­on is essen­ti­al to crea­te a solid foun­da­ti­on not only for sharing data its­elf, but also for using a broa­der ran­ge of tech­no­lo­gies that ensu­re good data qua­li­ty for all,” says Kari Mura­nen.
