There are only a few companies like Google, Facebook and Co. that suck and collect data worldwide around the clock and with their digital platforms dominate more and more entire sectors of the global economy. The power of the digital superpowers poses great challenges to the traditional economy. In order not to be at the mercy of helplessness, one has to find one’s own ways in order not to fidget as a small fish in the network of the big ones.
Building and using one’s own platforms, such as an internal / external data marketplace, is an obvious answer to the threat of monopolization of some data octopuses. Data marketplaces based on the reference system architecture of the International Data Spaces Association offer security and protection for a regulated data exchange or purchase and sale of data. The more participants there are, the greater the success. And all this without becoming dependent on new monopolies.
