  1. Emerging Data Economy is fueled by Productized data and APIs

  2. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS @Jarkko_Moilanen Focus today:

    APIs as Data Economy plumbing offering access to data products
  3. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS Open data started

    the era of data around 2009 Lacked monetization models and thinking – ”provice access” @Jarkko_Moilanen Focus today: APIs as Data Economy plumbing offering access to data products
  4. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS • global digital

    ecosystem in which • data is gathered, organized, and • exchanged by network of vendors • for the purpose of deriving value from the accumulated information • the gathered data is then passed to individuals or firms which typically take a fee. @Jarkko_Moilanen Data economy is
  5. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS Data Monetization options

    • Empowering the sales force with data • Data is collected and analyzed for product development purposes • Data is used to identify problems and bottlenecks in internal processes • Using data in marketing and advertising • Selling data to players up and down the industry value chain • Selling data to players outside your own industry • Selling insights to customers • Using data to increase company valuation @Jarkko_Moilanen
  6. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS @Jarkko_Moilanen According to

    IBM, 90 percent of the data in the world today was created during the last two years alone. The data growth is most likely not decreasing since new devices, sensors and technologies emerge. 1. We are drowning into data…
  7. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS @Jarkko_Moilanen Big data

    analytics (BDA) increasingly provide value to firms for robust decision making and solving business problems. DBA per se does not provide other organisations any ability to utilize the data for own purposes. 2. Processed and analyzed… Platform of Trust is NOT a Big data analytics service
  8. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS @Jarkko_Moilanen The emerging

    API Economy has become a concrete opportunity to go beyond the traditional development of vertical ICT solutions. APIs are used to provide abstracted access massive data and services to external developers through Open APIs 3. Access via APIs…
  9. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS Identify The Problem

    @Jarkko_Moilanen We can sum that 1. data is gathered more and more easily and automatically 2. we have efficient data management solutions and 3. We have technical solutions to enable access to data. Yet not too often productized. For data economy to emerge, it has to be monetised and commercialized. Problem is in creating economy around the data. We need easy to consume data products
  10. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS Deeper dive into

    the Problems @Jarkko_Moilanen • Data is collected in lakes if even that • Data is ”just data” – mindset problem • Data is hard to monetize outside own organisation • No understanding of productizement of data (or need of it) • Data offered as snapshots – datasets • Consumers want API access (streaming) • Consumers want to buy access to data, not the data itself (subscription) • APIs as pipeline to data are addons – not well documented, difficult to onboard Built environment context
  11. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS @Twitter_name Business oriented

    tools to design data products Common data models and ontology Tools to create data products as self- service Productized APIs for access to consume data products Solution
  12. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS Solution along Data

    Product value chain @Jarkko_Moilanen Business oriented tools to design data products Self-service tools to create data products Common data models and ontology Platform provides productized scalable access to consume data products AI, Automation, Analytics, Apps, data storage… Productized APIs & code libraries, SDKs and widgets Data Product Harmonized Data Data Payload in Hubs Data Points created by devices Higher Value Lower Value Customers only see the tip of the iceberg Device and data Management
  13. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS What is a

    Data Product? @Jarkko_Moilanen Where is the ”Open API Spec” for data products? ”We have no other option but to define the spec for data product….”
  14. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS Data Product Spec,

    ”Swagger” of data products @Jarkko_Moilanen Pricing options Subscribe Unit based Data Stream options Current values History Prediction Trust 10 quality attributes Product information Versioning Open technical specification emerging in dataproduct.oftrust.net Machine-readable standard specification of data product schema Name Lifecycle status Conditions Singular Ontology
  15. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS @Jarkko_Moilanen Ok, now

    we can technically define a data product! Yeah! Rock! ….Why aren’t the data owners creating data products? Answer is that we we did not look BACK far enough in the process. Customers have no tools to design data products.
  16. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS @Jarkko_Moilanen Join BETA

    program from dataproductbusiness.com 1. Data Product Value Proposition 2. Data Product Canvas. 3. Data Product Lifecycle canvas Currently in beta testing in pharmaceutical industry and smart city development. Data Product Toolkit is a collection of Data Product canvases which will help you to design a data product while keeping business objective in mind.
  17. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS @Jarkko_Moilanen Ok, now

    we can technically define a data product and customers can design business driven data products ….Why aren’t the consumers using the data products? Answer is that you need modern access to data. Consumers want APIs and subscription driven data streams.
  18. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS Productized Access to

    data products via API family • Platform Design Guide contains API design guide • APIs developed with Design-First principle • API Family which mut be unified • Clear versioning which is inline with data product ontology versioning (decoupled as much as possible) • Developer Guides • API Docs with tested code examples • API Management for mocking, analysis • Each API in Uptime tracking for developers • API Client packages Insomnia for V1 APIs, Postman for V2 APIs @Jarkko_Moilanen
  19. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS @Jarkko_Moilanen Customer needs

    Data Strategy Goals Discover Define Develop Deliver Evolve Productized data (streams) and access Data Product Toolkit Productized APIs Data Product Shared Ontology / Schemas Data Product Model Data Product Data product consumers Data Governance
  20. PLATFORMOFTRUST.NET | @PLATFORMOFTRUST | #DATALIIKKUU | #DATAFLOWS Data Economy requires

    Productized data (products) and access (APIs) @Jarkko_Moilanen The added value is in the data which is packaged into easy to understand, buy and consume data products. Consumers are not buying APIs. APIs provide modern access to discover, purchase and consume given data products.
