Dis­co­ver QA&TEST 2020, a UNIQUE con­fe­rence!

QA&TEST is a uni­que con­fe­rence in which the best pro­fes­sio­nals of the indus­try will pro­vi­de you an inno­va­ti­ve ver­si­on and new ide­as to face your dai­ly chal­len­ges. For this 2020 edi­ti­on, com­ple­te­ly vir­tu­al, we encou­ra­ge you to be part of a new QA&TEST expe­ri­ence: you may fol­low the pre­sen­ta­ti­ons live or you can set it à la car­te based on your agen­da. QA&TEST online will be on-demand; an important mee­ting won't keep you away from the ama­zing pre­sen­ta­ti­ons of the Con­fe­rence. All your IT team is wel­co­me at QA&TEST: tes­ters, deve­lo­pers, test archi­tects and pro­ject mana­gers will find inte­res­ting topics this edi­ti­on.

IDSA Tech Talk: Integration Test Camp – ensuring interoperability of IDS components

IDSA Tech Talk: Integration Test Camp - ensuring interoperability of IDS components

Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces are com­plex. Many com­pon­ents, such as Con­nec­tors, DAPS or Apps need to inter­act cor­rect­ly to be reli­able and robust. To veri­fy the­se inter­ac­tions, deve­lo­pers exer­cise the soft­ware wit­hin a spe­ci­fic test envi­ron­ment. The Inte­gra­ti­on Test Camp is a remo­te­ly acces­si­ble infra­st­ruc­tu­re deve­lo­ped by IDSA mem­ber SQS. It gives com­pa­nies the oppor­tu­ni­ty to test the inter­ope­ra­bi­li­ty of pre-com­mer­cial IDSA com­pon­ents in a pro­duc­tion-like sce­n­a­rio.

In the upco­m­ing Tech Talk, Olatz Media­vil­la, Seni­or QA & Test Engi­neer | Head Q‑IDSA Lab at SQS, and Nata­lia Simon, Pro­ject & Com­mu­ni­ty Mana­ger at IDSA, will out­line the road­map to a trus­ted IDS infra­st­ruc­tu­re.

Views on IDS: 'TRUSTS in the financial industry – enabling data sovereignty beyond existing solutions'

Views on IDS: 'TRUSTS in the financial industry – enabling data sovereignty beyond existing solutions'

What does a data mar­ket­place need to make par­ti­ci­pants feel safe when sharing per­so­nal and pro­prie­ta­ry data? In one word: trust.

Experts from the TRUSTS pro­ject will pre­sent their efforts to set up a GDPR-com­pli­ant Euro­pean Data Mar­ket­place based on pri­va­cy, con­fi­den­tia­li­ty and data sov­er­eig­n­ty.

Alex­an­dra Garat­zo­gi­an­ni (L3S Rese­arch Cen­ter at Leib­niz Uni­ver­si­ty Han­no­ver), the coor­di­na­tor of the pro­ject along with Gian­na Avgous­ti (eBOS), Chris­tos Rou­pas (Rela­tio­nal) and Ben­ja­min Heit­mann (Fraun­ho­fer FIT) will intro­du­ce the goals of TRUSTS. The pro­ject aims to crea­te a data sharing plat­form for per­so­nal and indus­tri­al use by inter­con­nec­ting dif­fe­rent user groups and pro­vi­ding gene­ric func­tio­n­a­li­ties for inno­va­ti­ve app­li­ca­ti­ons and ser­vices.


The dis­cus­sion will focus on how anti-money laun­de­ring works in TRUSTS and how the use of the IDS archi­tec­tu­re will enab­le data sov­er­eig­n­ty and data pro­tec­tion mecha­nisms. Final­ly, the panelists will approach the ques­ti­on of how the indus­try can take advan­ta­ge of the pro­ject results.

The topics in a nuts­hell:

- TRUSTS use cases and the exper­ti­se wit­hin the pro­ject

- Anti-money laun­de­ring

– which mecha­nisms does TRUSTS app­ly, how does it work in the eBos envi­ron­ment

- Pri­va­cy, con­fi­den­tia­li­ty, data sov­er­eig­n­ty

– data pro­tec­tion aspects that are par­ti­cu­lar­ly important for the use cases

- Stan­dar­di­z­a­ti­on – how data pro­tec­tion and data sov­er­eig­n­ty mecha­nisms in TRUSTS are enab­led through their ancho­ring in the IDS archi­tec­tu­re

- View on busi­ness explo­ita­ti­on and sus­taina­bi­li­ty

Manu­fac­tu­ring Resi­li­en­ce to suc­ceed in the “next nor­mal”

The impact of the COVID-19 pan­de­mic on manu­fac­tu­ring is long term and far-reaching. It not only impacts the ope­ra­ti­ons and finan­cial sta­bi­li­ty of manu­fac­tu­ring com­pa­nies but also their tech­no­lo­gy sup­pliers.

The post-pan­de­mic world will see a new nor­mal of manu­fac­tu­rers focu­sed on remo­te capa­bi­li­ties in ope­ra­ti­ons, pro­duct inno­va­ti­on, sup­ply chain, and cus­to­mer manage­ment.

That focus will dri­ve signi­fi­cant invest­ment in pro­cess auto­ma­ti­on, cen­tra­li­zed asset moni­to­ring and dia­gnostics, and cloud-based col­la­bo­ra­ti­on tools.

The goal will be to sup­port resi­li­en­cy in all aspects of the busi­ness, as well as resi­li­ent decisi­on making.

During the IDC Euro­pean Manu­fac­tu­ring Exe­cu­ti­ve Digi­tal Forum 2020 we will look into what “next nor­mal” means to manu­fac­tu­rers, why the busi­ness case for digi­ta­liz­a­ti­on is stron­ger than ever and how tech­no­lo­gy can demons­tra­te value to the busi­ness.

We look for­ward to con­nec­ting with you soon!

IoT Platform Conference @ ZVEI Conference Center
Dec 2 all-day

…starts with a key­note by IDSA on Data Sov­er­eig­n­ty.

The Ger­man eco­no­my is on the thres­hold of the fourth indus­tri­al age. The mecha­ni­cal and electri­cal engi­nee­ring indus­tries are shaping the ongo­ing digi­tiz­a­ti­on pro­cess more inten­si­ve­ly than any other indus­tri­al sec­tor: the mecha­ni­cal indus­try as tech­no­lo­gy inte­gra­tors and the electri­cal indus­try as an enab­ler of the new, digi­tal indus­tri­al age.

Plat­form tech­no­lo­gy is regar­ded as a key tech­no­lo­gy in the net­wor­king of machi­nes, the evo­lu­ti­on of devices from simp­le to smart and the plan­ning of intel­li­gent pro­duc­tion pro­ces­ses. In this way, the IoT plat­form will beco­me a fur­ther inter­face bet­ween the two indus­tri­al sec­tors whe­re tech­no­lo­gi­cal and eco­no­mic inte­gra­ti­on will be deepe­ned. The mem­ber com­pa­nies of the ZVEI will act as part­ners, cus­to­mers and even as ope­ra­tors of digi­tal plat­forms and will play a key role in dri­ving the deve­lo­p­ment of new busi­ness are­as in the plat­form eco­no­my.

The need for infor­ma­ti­on regar­ding the right IoT plat­form is par­ti­cu­lar­ly gre­at, as choo­sing the right plat­form app­li­ca­ti­on has beco­me a chal­len­ge in view of a lar­ge num­ber of offers. A well-thought-out selec­tion stra­te­gy is the­re­fo­re even more important. What should be achie­ved with the IoT plat­form? Should the end devices or sys­tems beco­me more intel­li­gent, or ent­i­re pro­duc­tion pro­ces­ses? Does the com­pa­ny need both or even no IoT plat­form at all?

The one-day IoT Plat­form Con­fe­rence on Decem­ber 2nd, 2020, will give ans­wers to the­se and other ques­ti­ons.

IDSA is very plea­sed that a key­note from CEO Lars Nagel will be the launch of this remar­kab­le con­fe­rence.
