Intertrust and K-Businesscom AG join forces to drive forward the digital energy revolution
VIENNA and SAN FRANCISCO - May 5, 2022.
K-Businesscom AG, a technology company in the DACH region, and Intertrust, the global leader in digital rights management and data interoperability, today announced their partnership. The goal is to support the European energy industry and other industries in their transformation and achievement of decarbonization goals. This partnership bundles KBC's solution expertise for customer IT issues with Intertrust's innovative technologies for secure data interoperability along the entire digitization value chain (including sensors/hardware, databases, data center/cloud to artificial intelligence). To ensure that our electricity supply remains secure and affordable in the future, the energy transition must be accompanied by digitization of renewables, grid infrastructure, energy storage systems, electromobility and other segments. This is the only way to implement the urgently needed and efficient control of electricity production on the one hand and demand flexibility via controllable loads on the other. In the future, energy companies will have to coordinate and cooperate via suitable data platforms. Data will be exchanged or shared with external ecosystem partners. This data will then be used by AI applications to ensure efficient automation.
Intertrust Platform and applications such as CleanGrid were created specifically to enable and secure - from hardware to cloud - data interoperability within these ecosystems. Used by energy companies around the world, Intertrust Platform offers numerous features and capabilities, including an interoperability layer for virtual onboarding of disparate data sources and complete and automated data governance for users and AI. These capabilities accelerate enterprises' ability to leverage data in existing and new business processes.
K-Businesscom AG builds on long-standing business relationships with numerous energy companies and also corporate customers in other industries in the DACH region. "Our customers in the energy sector demand solutions that enable them to leverage their data ecosystems and meet all regulatory requirements," explains Jochen Borenich, Member of the Board at K-Businesscom AG. "We are looking forward to working with Intertrust. Thanks to the strengths of both companies, we can meet these requirements perfectly."
"We are proud to work with a digital powerhouse like K-Businesscom," said Florian Kolb, Chief Commercial Officer and General Manager, Energy at Intertrust. "Together, we can contribute to the success of the energy transition by dramatically accelerating the use of AI in the energy industry and also optimally integrating adjacent industries such as electric cars and their charging infrastructure, building management and other industries with significant energy needs." Intertrust products are available immediately to KBC customers.
