Adva­neo advi­ses and accom­pa­nies com­pa­nies in the field of digi­tal trans­for­ma­ti­on. One focal point for Euro­pean rail­way com­pa­nies is on ques­ti­ons of stan­dar­di­sa­ti­on and digi­ti­sa­ti­on in infra­st­ruc­tu­re tech­no­lo­gy. This is all about gua­ran­te­eing the hig­hest pos­si­ble data secu­ri­ty to avoid data misu­se.

Deut­sche Bahn, for examp­le, equips tens of thousands of rail­way-track swit­ches with spe­cial sen­sors that pro­vi­de the com­pa­ny with important infor­ma­ti­on about the con­di­ti­on of the points dri­ves and the­re­fo­re enab­le pre­dic­ti­ve main­ten­an­ce. The­se data are also of gre­at inte­rest to other com­pa­nies so they could even be tra­ded com­mer­cial­ly.

In this app­li­ca­ti­on sce­n­a­rio, Adva­neo ser­ves as a bro­ker that arran­ges the secu­re exchan­ge of the respec­ti­ve data bet­ween pro­vi­der and user via IDS struc­tures. On a vir­tu­al mar­ket­place, the “Adva­neo Data mar­ket­place”, com­pre­hen­si­ve meta­da­ta from dif­fe­rent sources are avail­ab­le on the sup­ply side. Other users of the mar­ket­place can purcha­se this infor­ma­ti­on to gain the latest insights or to deve­lop new busi­ness models.

Data sov­er­eig­n­ty has first prio­ri­ty in all pro­ces­ses: exchan­ge is only pos­si­ble via the secu­red data space of IDS that safe­guards the pro­ces­ses for the part­ners and simul­ta­ne­ous­ly gua­ran­tees adhe­rence to the dis­tinct rules of the game. All par­ti­ci­pants in the data exchan­ge are iden­ti­fied and cer­ti­fied thanks to IDS.
