Discussion and Deployment Initiatives

he current data ecosystem is built around the companies that collect and sell data, and users have no voice nor right to control and demand transparent management. With the PIMS Devel- opment Kit, we simplify experimentation with new user-centric marketplaces and foster a new data economy where users are at the center and have full control over their data. The PDK in- cludes tools for managing consent and personal data, and for creating marketplaces. Using the PDK building blocks, new companies and bodies can quickly enter the PIMS market and imple- ment various use cases to deliver transparent business or social value.

We are now working on developing fully- fledged solutions on the top of the PDK. We are developing two pilots to demonstrate the opera- tion of the PDK. Our initiatives aim at dissem- inating our work with end users and enterprises willing to participate in the platform.

The first pilot will be the main demonstrator of the PIMCity project. We will bootstrap the EasyPIMS platform, feeding it with the data already available at the opera- tors participating in the project (Telefonica and FastWeb). Moreover, the platform will also be demonstrated and tested to users in a production- ready environment. The main goal of this main pilot is to demonstrate the potential of EasyP- IMS by testing it with a critical mass of users, bootstrapping that way the personal data platform for its commercial use after the project. The final outcome of this pilot will be a clear business and exploitation plan of the EasyPIMS platform as well as the outreach and engagement strategy to be followed after the project to keep growing the mass of users, using the operators as the catalyst for the success of the project.]

The second pilot is devoted to check the usability and versatility of PDK and EasyPIMs components in the B2B operation of ERMES. To this end, FW and ERMES will explore their customer portfolio to identify about 50 companies interested in products combining preservation of security and privacy with training and increasing of users’ awareness. The main goal of this pilot is to demonstrate the value of some components in the B2B segment. To this end, ERMES will develop solutions for companies that will help them to protect their data while increasing their awareness with augmented information about web services.]
[mt: In conclusion, we believe our PDK offers the first fully-fledged tool set for building user- centric data platforms. Our challenge is now to disseminate our solution and problem perspective, that we are advertising with our demonstration initiatives.]
