Meet the GXFS-DE team and shape the future data infrastructure
GXFS develops the software components necessary to set up a federated system that interconnects several Participants with each other, aiming to develop new data-driven services and innovative products. Such ecosystems consist of joined interconnected data and infrastructure ecosystems, aggregated in so-called Federations that are individually orchestrated and operated with the help of Federation Services.
Together with the Federal Ministry for Economics and Climate Action the project team of Gaia-X Federation Services will be present as an exhibitor at the Hannover Messe. From 17-21 April 2023, visitors will find us at the joint booth ‘Plattform Industrie 4.0’ in hall 8, booth D26. This year we are looking forward to presenting you hands-on GXFS demos showcasing how the individual GXFS components can be integrated and used for industry-oriented scenarios.
