Use of the International Data Spaces in the company/use case
Before using the International Data Spaces in the company, the exact application has to be defined. Certain approaches and implementations are more sensible than others depending on the use case.
The following points generally have to be clarified prior to implementation:
What partners will be exchanging data through the International Data Spaces?
The partners will subsequently have to use an IDS connector for the sovereign exchange of their data.
What added value/service is enabled and/or implemented by the use case?
The added value reveals the purpose of the implementation. This is essential to make internal resources available to implement the use case. It also clarifies what services need to be realized and implemented.
What data will be exchanged?
The data that should and has to be exchanged is defined according to the partners and the services to be developed.
In what systems are the data currently stored, or what systems generate the data, and/or in what systems will the data be stored in order to enable the services?
The systems subsequently have to be linked to the IDS connector. This is typically realized over HTTPS connections, but other protocols can also be used.
The International Data Spaces are not an end in itself. Thus, the intended use and objective should be established prior to implementation. Some of the IDS use cases are listed here: Use cases.
We are happy to assist you with the development of new use cases and with choosing the most sensible solutions.
