Totem Smart City – Bpifrance Hub

Dawex at Smart City Totem in Paris - Sept. 20, 2017

Our two founders, Laurent Lafaye and Fabrice Tocco, went together to the Totem conference in Paris in September 2017.

The theme of this event, organized by Bpifrance Hub, was "The Smart City", bringing together all the stakeholders involved with this vast city modernization project. The event featured several specialists, such as Mathieu Bancelin, innovation director at Alstom, and Jean-Marc Lazard, CEO of Opendatasoft.

"Using data sets the framework that will Smart Cities to emerge."

A meeting where people can plan the future of smarter and more sustainable cities, able to better leverage their resources. Given today's evolving infrastructure, and to focus more on services, Smart Cities will need to activate multiple factors, notably data, decentralization, and sustainability.

As a major player in the data economy, Dawex considered it necessary to be part of this event. During our presentations, we had the opportunity to explain why data marketplaces will play a key role in the circulation of data produced and consumed by Smart Cities.

It will be necessary to implement secure and reliable exchange mechanisms. This has always been a major focus of our platform, which serves as a trusted third-party for data monetization and exchange. Check out the list of event participants.
