Data Share – Free beta version available now

Today, Data Share is a service available to end-users and business partners alike, as a free self-service beta.

With Data Share beta, Orange offers to act as a data controller, with the following benefits:

  • End-users enjoy fine-tuned control over their data and privacy
  • Developers have a common norm to model data from multiple devices of different brands
  • Developers, integrators, etc. are freed from the complexity of managing user consent and can focus on their value proposition

Data Share B2B – coming soon

After the success of the Data Share beta with a wide range of partners, Orange is evolving this service to meet the IoT ecosystem’s needs for solutions that:

  • Enrich user experiences with connected devices
  • Are user-centric and privacy-focused by design
  • Help service providers of all kinds accelerate the development of their IoT offers
  • Seamlessly integrate into their user journeys while being GDPR-compliant by design

The next version of Data Share will be a paid B2B platform managing IoT data and user consent on behalf of third parties.

With Data Share B2B, Orange offers to act as a secure data processor. This makes it easier for you to create new services based on the connected devices used by your customers in their daily lives; meanwhile, you stay in control of your customer relationship!

With this new version, you will be able to improve your user experience by integrating connected devices, and to re-expose user data to develop your digital ecosystem. Future developments will include a SaaS model, SDKs, sector-specific APIs and more.
