eConnect, the shipment sharing and monitoring platform extends its functionalities by introducing the bi-directional exchange of information through the GS1 standard.

The goal of GS1 is to provide global standards for the identification, registration and sharing of information, to build a more efficient logistical chain. By developing global standards within certain sectors, the implementation of processes and standards are facilitated. More info can be found on the GS1 website.

Digi­ta­li­sa­ti­on is a soci­al, eco­no­mic and tech­ni­cal trend affec­ting all busi­ness sec­tors. Data is not only a result of pro­ces­ses and sta­tu­ses that are collec­ted and admi­nis­te­red, nor does it only ser­ve the pur­po­se of plan­ning resour­ces, pro­ducts or pro­ces­ses. It is much more that data its­elf has beco­me a pro­duct and forms the basis for ana­ly­ses as a busi­ness asset and stra­te­gic resour­ce for initia­ting inno­va­ti­ve added value pro­ces­ses. Indus­tri­al Data Space gives com­pa­nies a stra­te­gic tool with which they can active­ly shape the way data is hand­led and form the basis for modern busi­ness models. Inde­ed, the­re are alre­a­dy solu­ti­ons or even stan­dards for spe­ci­fic use cases at some indi­vi­dual levels. Howe­ver, this still has not ans­we­red ques­ti­ons con­cerning gover­nan­ce archi­tec­tu­re. Indus­tri­al Data Space now pro­vi­des the first archi­tec­tu­re desi­gned toge­ther with users that com­bi­nes ever­y­thing and simul­ta­neous­ly sets up an inter­na­tio­nal­ly accep­ted stan­dard.

The combination of GS1 and the Industrial Data Space – integrated in eConnect – leads to a platform which is standardised and accepted within a lot of industries, enabling you to bring your data exchange to a higher level. This integration in combination with eConnect is now rolled out, in one of the biggest steel industry companies in Germany.
