Results of the cooperation between FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences and senseering GmbH
The senseering GmbH is a company founded in 2018 that has focused on opening up the bridge between plant technology (operational technology (OT)) and information technology (IT) since its inception. In addition to the digitization of (industrial) hardware, the start-up enables participation in a sovereign and self-determined data exchange (according to GAIA-X) between companies, which ensures a seamless traceable digital value creation. For this purpose, senseering has developed a multi-sided platform based on the IOTA Tangle.
The vision behind this platform is to become reality using the example of the DatenMarketplace.NRW, a then globally scalable B2x data network for the monetization of data and data-driven services (Figure 1). The #DigitalEconomyNRW as a pioneer in a data economy.
In cooperation with Aachen University of Applied Sciences, a project/internship was initiated in the winter semester 2020/2021 in which students had to identify potential pilot sectors for the DatenMarketplaces.NRW and evaluate their suitability in terms of achieving a critical mass of stakeholders. Furthermore, the existing business model of a platform operator was to be analyzed.
