Connect your organisation with realtime information

The KPN Data Services Hub is a platform-as-a-service offering the capability to respond to relevant developments directly, with data. Real-time information exchange lies at the very core of the KPN Data Services Hub. The platform is multi-tenant, letting you easily create entities that can work with your existing data, like departments, suppliers or partners. For example, you can share relevant information with colleagues, suppliers and manufacturing and production environments. You can even share information with your competitors. You retain control over competitive or business-sensitive information because all environments are separated from each other and remain underthe owner’s management, but you can certainly share your information. This protects that information, while you benefit from the powerful added value of data sharing and cooperation, both inside and outside your organisation.

Applications of the KPN Data Services Hub

KPN has developed the Thialf fan dashboard in collaboration with Innovation Lab Thialf, KNSB, University of Groningen and Sportunity to enhance the fan experience during skating competitions. This Showcase is an example of what digitization can bring skating. The dashboard shows the data of the two athletes together with a live speedometer and a graph that plots the live speed twelve times per lap over the distance traveled. In addition to this, a predicted end time is given after the first round driven, based on the predictive model of the University of Groningen. KPN has won a Computable Award 2018 for, among other things, this project.

Antea Group is an international operating consultancy and engineering firm. Antea Group wants to be a leading partner in the development and application of sustainable and integrated solutions in the living environment. The speed of change is increasing, among other things because of technological innovation. The role of big data and sensors is becoming increasingly important in the maintenance of roads, bridges and viaducts. We are heading to a state where the bridge calls you and says: I need replacement. By concluding performance contracts with customers, Antea Group can organize its activities more on services and less on projects. The KPN Data Services Hub enables Antea Group to get started today with the development of these services and to be able to deploy the scarce resources (skilled personnel) for domain-specific added value. It is therefore a great advantage to be able to rely on a high-quality infrastructure from a reliable party with a track record in this area.
