Service Provider/Consumer

The Service Consumer is fulfilled by a legal entity that consumes a service, such as data, as provided by a Service Provider. This legal entity is in need of the result of a service; for example, a trucking company that needs to know its optimal route and Estimated Time of Arrival. 

The Service Provider role is fulfilled by a legal entity that provides a service, such as data, for consumption by a Service Consumer. This legal entity provides the result of a service that Service Consumer(s) need; for example the party that uses a truck’s a time and location to calculate and communicate the truck’s optimal route and Estimated Time of Arrival.

To get started, the initial step entails joining the data space and signing agreements as an adhering party. Subsequently, adhering to the developer manuals and step-by-step instructions is imperative to seamlessly integrate the iSHARE specifications and workflows into daily operations. Here’s a breakdown of the steps for Service Consumers and Providers :

  1. Utilise trusted data sources with established reliability and accuracy to ensure consistent data quality. Examples include energy company’s data, government obligations, or land registry information.
  2. Aim for multi-to-multi connections instead of one-to-one connections for more efficient data sharing.
  3. Ensure simplicity in the initial data service to allow for easy recognition and diverse potential applications. 
  4. Start with an existing API based on the identification, authentication, and authorization standard within the data space whenever possible.
  5. Label data properly to identify the relevant parties within the data space, such as using EORI numbers.

By following these steps and leveraging the iSHARE Trust Framework, SaaS and cloud companies can enhance their data sharing capabilities while maintaining compliance and security standards.
