Hewlett Packard Enterprise Launches Gaia-X Solutions to Accelerate Data Value Creation
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) today announced solutions to help organizations advance data monetization by tapping into Gaia-X, an emerging federated data infrastructure supported by more than 300 organizations in Europe and globally.
The HPE Solution Framework for Gaia-X was designed for companies, service providers and public organizations that want to get ready to participate in Gaia-X. It supports virtually all capabilities that are required to both provide and consume data and services in a decentralized, federated environment. As a result, organizations can advance their ability to create value from data, tap into huge distributed data pools, and strengthen their sovereignty over their data-driven business model.
The framework is based on a reference architecture, leveraging key components of HPE’s software portfolio, third-party software, and the Cloud28+ business platform, a marketplace for the monetization of data and services. Individual solution components and entire solution environments are available as a service via HPE GreenLake cloud services.
HPE also announced the HPE Roadmap Service for Gaia-X which helps customers assess their Gaia-X readiness and develop a roadmap.
“Gaia-X is an answer to the key question of the next wave of digital transformation: How can we create network effects without centralizing all the data? This is perfectly in line with our company strategy which is focused on unlocking the value of data distributed across locations and clouds,” says Johannes Koch, Senior Vice President, Germany, Austria and Switzerland, HPE. “However, Gaia-X does not do the job alone. It requires a range of capabilities to benefit from this platform. In essence, you must know how to monetize data and put it to work. That’s exactly what we help customers achieve with our Gaia-X solutions.”
New era of decentralized data to drive economic and social progress
The European Commission has declared data value creation to be the crucial source of economic and social progress in the next decades. This will be driven by a “new wave” of industrial and professional data, with 80 percent of the overall data volume to be processed in a decentralized manner by 2025.
According to the World Economic Forum, this enables organizations to create “value from data insights” in the form of new revenue streams, new business models, better customer experiences, and better decisions. As an example, McKinsey estimates that the monetization of connected-car data could deliver $250 billion to $400 billion in annual incremental value for players across the mobility ecosystem in 2030. And the European Union’s data economy is forecasted to almost triple between 2018 and 2025 to reach a value of 829 billion Euros.
A radically new approach for sovereign data value creation
However, it’s not certain to which extent organizations will be able to actually materialize these opportunities. According to a global report by IDC and Seagate, only 32 percent of data available to enterprises are put to work. Moreover, according to the European Commission, “currently a small number of big tech firms hold a large part of the world’s data. This could reduce the incentives for data-driven businesses to emerge, grow and innovate.”
Decentralized cloud and data infrastructures take a radically new approach to address that challenge. They enable sharing and aggregation of data, insights, and services at scale without a central intermediary. This creates a level playing field, with power and opportunities distributed across all parties.
Gaia-X is emerging as a focal point of this endeavor. Gaia-X connects centralized and decentralized infrastructures to strengthen the ability to both access and share data securely and confidently. Gaia-X is now entering its operational phase with first flagship projects, and first Gaia-X-compliant solutions are expected to be certified in December 2021.
HPE is supporting customers to get ready for Gaia-X
HPE is a day-1 member of the non-profit organization Gaia-X AISBL and contributes to the Gaia-X architecture, standards, and certification. HPE is already working with dozens of organizations across Europe to help them get ready for decentralized data infrastructures such as Gaia-X.
One of them is Orange Business Services, a European network-native digital services provider supporting customers worldwide to bring the best innovations with the strongest data protections. “We are helping shape the technical and dataspace foundations of the Gaia-X ecosystem, and we are currently adapting Orange Cloud services to these specifications in order to continue providing the most trusted cloud solutions to our customers within Gaia-X,” says Cedric Parent, Deputy CEO, Orange Cloud. “HPE is a key partner to power Orange Cloud platforms with state-of-the-art technology and capabilities. We benefit from HPE’s deep expertise and solution offering, which comprehensively support the developments needed to fully benefit from decentralized infrastructures such as Gaia-X.”
CSC - IT Center for Science Ltd, the Finnish organization hosting Europe‘s first pre-exascale supercomputer named LUMI, is currently preparing to make supercomputing available as part of an ecosystem of capabilities, where Gaia-X will play a major role. “We are working with HPE to provide trustworthy, secure and efficient supercomputing for research and industry. CSC is happy to provide its solid expertise in handling sensitive data, e.g. for the purposes of health research,” says Pekka Manninen, Director, LUMI Leadership Computing Facility, CSC.
Solution framework for Gaia-X readiness
A central element of the HPE Solution Framework for Gaia-X is a reference architecture that defines the foundation of the components necessary to build Gaia-X use cases. It ensures secure infrastructure operation for decentralized workloads and includes a central governance structure.
The technological foundation is the HPE Ezmeral Software Platform which provides capabilities such as unified access to distributed data and unified control of distributed Kubernetes clusters. HPE also leverages SPIFFE, the Secure Production Identity Framework For Everyone, and SPIRE, the SPIFFE Runtime Environment – open-source standards for securely authenticating software services through the use of platform-agnostic, cryptographic identities.
The Cloud28+ business platform enables customers to leverage and monetize their data and services via a marketplace. This platform was originally created as the service catalogue of the Cloud28+ community, and it’s now available to be used by individual organizations, in addition to HPE’s partner network.
An active contributor to the Gaia-X architecture and standards, HPE will equip its solution framework with the required interfaces, connectors and services so customers can seamlessly connect to the Gaia-X platform and ecosystem.
The HPE Solution Framework for Gaia-X and the HPE Roadmap Service for Gaia-X are available in Europe. Individual solution components and entire solution environments are available via HPE GreenLake cloud services. Gaia-X interfaces and connectors will be made available as soon as Gaia-X specifications are final.

Teva Presents New Data at 7th European Academy of Neurology Congress Suggesting Socio-Economic Factors May Contribute to the Significant Under-Diagnosis of Migraine21.6.2021 14:01:00 CEST | Press release
Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE and TASE: TEVA) today presented new epidemiology data on migraine from the State of Israel which indicate that socio-economic factors may contribute to underdiagnosis of migraine across society1. A retrospective study of migraine epidemiology in Southern Israel, supported by Teva and presented at the virtual 7th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN), found extreme variability in the prevalence of diagnosed patients with migraine across the geographic area studied. Prevalence rates were positively associated with the socio-economic status of the geographic area studied, suggesting that those living with migraine from less advantaged areas may find it harder to achieve an accurate diagnosis and thereby access appropriate therapy. “These findings are concerning not least because they suggest significant ‘migraine awareness inequity’ in this population,” said Professor Gal Ifergane, study investigator, practitioner, head of the Depart
New Data Supporting the Safety and Efficacy Profile of AJOVY® (fremanezumab) Shared at 7th European Academy of Neurology Congress21.6.2021 14:01:00 CEST | Press release
A new analysis presented by Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE and TASE: TEVA) on AJOVY® (fremanezumab) injection for the preventive treatment of migraine, indicates to the European neurology community that the medicine has a positive safety profile in relation to risk of cardiovascular events. The data, drawn from an analysis of three published Phase 3 studies of fremanezumab and presented at the 7th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN), showed minimal changes in the heart rate and blood pressure of those patients studied over a 12 week period. 1 “As a CGRP inhibitor, fremanezumab has been shown to provide protection against migraine in suitable patients, and we remain focused on continued assessment of the safety profile of this therapy, particularly in relation to heart-related issues as it is believed CGRP itself acts as a ‘safeguard’ during cardiovascular ischemia and other events,” said Dr Joshua M. Cohen, Senior Director and Global Therapeutic Area Lead, Mi

ISAE-SUPAERO's "Collaborative Rover and Drone" Project, Facilitating the Exploration of the Moon21.6.2021 09:54:00 CEST | Press release
While Thomas Pesquet launched on April 22 as part of the Alpha mission, one of humanity's biggest challenges remains even further away than the ISS, 400,000 km from Earth: the establishment of a lunar base. But before being able to settle on the Moon in a prolonged way to exploit its resources or as a logistic support for future exploration missions further away, an exploration work is necessary. The use of autonomous robotic systems would allow mapping of dangerous or hard-to-reach areas from space, before eventually deploying infrastructure such as a spaceport or human habitation. Faced with this exploration challenge, the Space Advanced Concepts Laboratory (SaCLaB) of ISAE-SUPAERO in Toulouse and a team of students from the Institute are developing the Collaborative Rover and Drone (CoRoDro) project to study navigation and autonomous operations for space robotic systems. This scientific study is one of 12 university technology projects selected in 8 different countries as part of th
