Pioneering the Future of Data and AI ecosystems following the Gaia-X concept

Service-Meister and deltaDAO AG announce GXFS-based collaboration.

The Service-Meister consortia, represented by eco – Association of the Internet Industry as consortia lead and deltaDAO AG have agreed to join forces to shape the future of AI and sovereign federated data ecosystems. The agreed collaboration aims to increase ecosystem interoperability and service portability, building on Eclipse XFSC (formerly GXFS-DE) and the Pontus-X ecosystem.

With this collaboration we want to set an example of how a successful setup of a federated ecosystem can work, using different free and open-source components. We hope that this collaboration can serve as a blueprint for others seeking to become active in the Community work for data ecosystems.” – Andreas Weiss, Managing Director, eco – Association of the Internet Industry

This collaboration with eco marks a significant milestone in our journey. Together, we are poised to set new standards in ecosystem interoperability, ensuring that our users and customers benefit from the best of both worlds: Eclipse XFSC and the Pontus-X ecosystem“, said Kai Meinke, Co-Founder and Member of the Executive Board of deltaDAO AG

The collaboration is set to kick off with a joint initiative Service Management, an AI based service ecosystem for technical services in the age of Industry 4.0., aimed at integrating key features and functionalities from both ecosystems. Service-Meister has designed a service platform for small and medium-sized companies that can be used across production plants, departments, and companies, creating a service ecosystem enabling SMEs to benefit from the change in digital value creation.

“We are particularly proud to unveil the integration of an enhanced Service-Meister eco system and related use case into the Pontus-X ecosystem  where selected Service-Meister AI applications can be found and consumed. All in all, Service-Meister is intended to provide small and medium-sized companies with a low-threshold introduction to the use of AI tools for technical service.” says Hauke Timmermann, project lead of Service-Meister.

Service-Meister is part of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) initiative to develop innovative practical AI applications as digital ecosystem. The consortium is led by eco – Association of the Internet Industry and composed of various industry experts, including Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG, grandcentrix GmbH, inovex GmbH, KEB Automation KG, KROHNE Messtechnik GmbH, TRUMPF Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH + Co. KG, USU Gruppe and research partners such as Berliner Hochschule für Technik (BHT), Fraunhofer-Institut für Software- und Systemtechnik ISST, Institut für Internet-Sicherheit – if(is), Karlsruher Service Research Institute (KSRI) and Universität Stuttgart.

deltaDAO AG is a data ecosystem building and integration company based in Hamburg, Germany. deltaDAO provided the first public federated Gaia-X ecosystem “Pontus-X” in 2021, based on open-source software and Web3 components. In 2022 deltaDAO launched the first Pan-European federated DLT- network for Gaia-X, together with Polygon and EuProGigant, the Austrian-German Gaia-X lighthouse project. Since then deltaDAO has onboarded far more than 100 institutions, use cases, applications and services to Gaia-X and Pontus-X. Recently deltaDAO announced a collaboration with COOPERANTS, a lighthouse project to accelerate the digitization of processes in the aerospace industry.
