What is Data Share?
Data Share is an IoT data aggregation solution for app providers that is:
- user-centric and privacy-focused, managing user consent at the same time as the transfer of IoT data.
- based on a universal norm for modeling device data, making it easier than ever to develop services based on multiple devices of different brands.
Data Share – Free beta version available now
Today, Data Share is a service available to end-users and business partners alike, as a free self-service beta.
Through their dedicated account, end-users share their IoT data with developers, partners, etc., in exchange for value-adding services.
With Data Share beta, Orange offers to act as a data controller, with the following benefits:
- End-users enjoy fine-tuned control over their data and privacy
- Developers have a common norm to model data from multiple devices of different brands
- Developers, integrators, etc. are freed from the complexity of managing user consent and can focus on their value proposition
How it works

- Users manage their data and permissions through a personal Data Share account
- Users, through their account in your service, give you access to relevant IoT data in exchange for value-adding services
