Lot 7: Inter-Catalogue Synchronization

In this tender the lot “Inter-Catalogue Synchronization” is being awarded. The purpose of the service functions to be implemented is to ensure that a Gaia-X participant is listed in all existing Catalogues (the Federated Catalogue is being awarded in a separate tender) or Catalogue instances. Next to the “official” Gaia-X Catalogue, there might also exist ecosystem-specific Catalogues (e.g., for the healthcare domain) and even company-internal Catalogues to be used only internally.

Having a synchronized network of multiple Catalogues ensures that a service provider can register his service offerings knowing that due to the synchronization all Catalogues -and by that all potential customers- will be able to find its service offerings within the Gaia-X ecosystem.
