Development of a smart data platform, Germany

Development of a smart data platform, Germany

Together with partners from academia and industry, as joint venture leader Fichtner IT Consulting is currently developing a smart data platform by means of which infrastructure operators and energy consortia can undertake forecast- and market-based energy management with the aid of sensor data. This platform's task is to merge large volumes of diverse data from heterogeneous sources. On this foundation, new procedures for optimizing infrastructure operation are designed, taking Stuttgart Airport as an application example. As well as project coordination, Fichtner undertakes, among other functions, analysis of the infrastructural system and conceptual design of the platform's general architecture.
