Bridging Data Spaces

In the rapidly evolving landscape of data management, the connection of disparate data spaces stands as a beacon of innovation and efficiency. Less than one month ago, in between 16th-18th of April, a team of experts, from different corners of the world, convened to tackle this challenge.

The meeting, hosted by Indra, commenced with a review of the project's vision, emphasizing the clear goal – to create a bridge between two data spaces that would not only facilitate the flow of information but also maintain the integrity and security of the data.

There were discussions on the importance of (1) interoperability, how two different data spaces can communicate effectively, despite their inherent differences in structure and format, (2) data governance, how to ensure compliance with regulations and maintain data quality and (3) security, how to develop a secure connection that would protect sensitive information from unauthorized access.

Amongst the main key objectives of the meeting were:

  1. Creating an initial common functional architecture for the intersectoral data space toolkit.

  2. Creating a common understanding on how we use data spaces/data sharing in the pilot use cases.

  3. Planning the pilots and understanding what is needed as an infrastructure for the use cases (data providers, data consumers, data spaces, business motivation, etc.

The potential of the DS2 endeavor to revolutionize data interaction across various sectors is huge.

As the meeting concluded, there was a palpable sense of optimism. The project is ambitious, and the team was resolute in their commitment to bridging the data divide. The next steps were outlined, with tasks assigned and deadlines set. The journey to connect two data spaces had begun.

In essence, the technical meeting was not just about connecting two data spaces; it was about connecting people, ideas, and ultimately, the future.
