Project meeting at Software AG
How does data quality affect AI algorithms? In which ways can Gaia-X-compliant data acquisition be enabled and what could possible digital service offerings look like? These and other topics were in the focus of the second DIONE-X project meeting, which brought together more than 20 partners at the Software AG site in Darmstadt on 31 May, 2023.
Together, partners from industry and research discussed current project results and next steps. Among other things, work package 2 was completed, which revolved around the requirements of the use cases and definition of the business models. The work package focused on the possible service offerings of the three use cases
- collaborative condition monitoring and smart service planning
- individualised KPI dashboard
- optimised tool use
and the resulting business models. Subsequently, the team clarified which data sources need to be connected to the IoT platform and identified information parts that require special protection.
This was followed by the latest developments from the other work packages, which are about the evaluation of data quality or also the development of a methodology for the partial anonymisation of data, just name a few. In the afternoon, the participants worked out the requirements for a Gaia-X service in workshops - including a definition and possible roles and tasks of the individual participants in a data and service ecosystem.
As host of the project meeting, Software AG provided insights into the world of the digital networking expert as well as its own role in the DIONE-X project: "Based on Gaia-X, we want to enable companies in the machining industry to exchange data securely and sustainably across multiple stages of the value chain," said Dr. Harald Schöning, Vice President Research at Software AG. "To realize this, we will create a prototype Gaia-X-compliant IoT platform that will act as a central networking point in the value network and provide the three use cases in the DIONE-X project with the data they require. To this end, we will adapt or further develop our Cumulocity IoT product to be Gaia-X-compliant."
