T-Systems and IDSA achieve milestone for data spaces

First certification of a connector promotes standardization and interoperability


Essential component for connecting to data spaces

T-Systems has successfully obtained the world’s first certification from the International Data Spaces Association (IDSA) for their “Dataspace Connector” – the essential component for connecting to data spaces. IDSA is considered a key organization for standardizing data spaces, playing a crucial role in the sustainable development of the data economy.

The first step towards added value is the connection – Connector

Data spaces allow companies to securely and sovereignly exchange and share data, creating a connected and transparent data infrastructure. To participate in data spaces, a sovereign connection is required – a so-called Connector. T-Systems provides such a Connector as a Managed Service to make participation in data spaces easy and fast for businesses of all sizes.

Certifications for broad success in complex ecosystems

IDSA is committed to creating standards for data spaces and promoting the development of secure and interoperable solutions in this field. With the successful acquisition of the IDSA certificate for the “Dataspace Connector”, T-Systems emphasizes its position as a pioneer in the data spaces domain. The certified Connector provides users with assurance that their data can be exchanged in a data-driven environment according to the highest security and quality standards. Moreover, collaboration between service providers marks a significant step towards data spaces interoperability, resulting in an easier process and more benefits for the end customer. T-Systems acts proactively towards that common goal.

“As pioneers in data spaces, we at T-Systems are proud to label our Connector as the first IDSA-certified ‘Dataspace Connector’. This certification underscores our commitment to security and interoperability in the data economy,” says Sven Löffler, Chapter Lead Data Intelligence Hub at T-Systems International.

Witnessing T-Systems International obtaining the world’s first IDS certification for their ‘Dataspace Connector’ is a momentous occasion. This achievement not only signifies a crucial step in standardizing data spaces but also highlights our dedication to fostering secure, interoperable solutions that contribute to the sustainable development of the data economy.

Resilience and efficiency using data spaces

The IDSA certification of the “Dataspace Connector” is an important step for T-Systems to meet the increasing requirements for secure and efficient data traffic. This is the basis for business applications – so-called super apps – that should enable companies to create sustainable added value from their data and thus become more efficient and resilient.

Success with data spaces like Catena-X: better data instead of Big Data

This is how you can use data spaces and protect your data sovereignty at the same time, as well as develop new data products and make groundbreaking super apps.
