Connection of Data Platforms

Connecting several platforms will result in comprehensive visibility and availability of data sources for data users. Mobility data in particular are generated and used on a regional level, either by communities or by fleet operators in private economy.

Currently, mobility data platforms are created on a regional level, e. g., by smart city initiatives, in order to pool the local services. Through the integration of these platforms and the data space concept, as well as through the resulting network, the MDM helps to make regional mobility data visible on a national level.

Further national data platforms with different focus topics, such as open data in mCLOUD, and commercial data services, such as geodata, vehicle data or navigation services, can also be combined into an ecosystem with the help of data space concepts.

Cloud Ecosystems

Cloud services provide another networking level. With the help of their resources, cloud services create scalability for business models in the field of data exploitation and management. It is thus possible to offer customized CPU-intensive prognosis models, AI applications and high volume data analyses, which would be impossible for just one conventional platform. 

The use of resources and the resulting costs for the cloud computing can be tied to customer demand, which means that they can be planned and calculated. Hosting an IDS connector in a cloud environment is just as secure as hosting it on a platform, the only difference being that a cloud-hosted connector is scalable according to the demand. 

In addition to that, cloud environments, just as single platforms,  are also often data and service ecosystems
