The cur­rent edi­ti­on of the tra­de jour­nal “Pro­duk­ti­on” inclu­des an arti­cle dis­cus­sing how Inter­na­tio­nal Data Space is deve­lo­ping a stan­dard for secu­re data exchan­ge. The arti­cle, which is well-worth rea­ding, gives an over­view of how IDS can be estab­lished in busi­ness prac­tice. “On the basis of the Refe­rence Archi­tec­tu­re 2, com­pa­nies are now desi­gning the first com­mer­ci­al app­li­ca­ti­ons”, exp­lains Lars Nagel, Mana­ging Direc­tor of IDSA, in con­ver­sa­ti­on with the tra­de jour­nal, and imme­dia­te­ly gives us several examp­les: “One com­pa­ny that will be using the tech­no­lo­gy deve­lo­ped by IDS in future is Deut­sche Tele­kom. From the second half of 2018, custo­mers will be able to use the Tele­kom Data Intel­li­gence Hub (Tele­kom DIH) for secu­re data exchan­ge”, the arti­cle sta­tes. The use cases at Salz­git­ter AG and SICK AG are also pre­sen­ted as examp­les.
