MyData Operator

At the heart of MyDataShare is the human-centric MyData approach to personal data management, designed to empower individuals with control over their personal data. To understand the principles that guide us, explore the full MyData Declaration here.

MyData concept entertains a high-level concept of the MyData operator, a ‘guardian’ infrastructure provider in-between the data providers, data using services and individuals. Operator is a key enabler towards human centred, sustainable data-oriented business development around personal data - it can free up under-utilised personal data for fresh, innovative uses. Read more from "Understanding MyData Operators" - a white paper by MyData Global.

MyDataShare is an operator platform. It enables requesting in personal data from different sources, against a digitally documented purpose and legal basis, and doesn’t allow access to personal data without individual’s permission. It doesn’t handle the personal data of individuals during the data exchange process.

MyDataShare can be used by entities acting as a MyData operator to connect different systems across public-private and industry vertical boundaries. It is an easy way to add transparency into personal data exchange taking place between organisations - and also to organisation’s new local personal data processing needs, as our first deployment cases which we locally operate under demonstrate.




Share, trust, and value. We can create a new sustainable way of living, working and doing business by adopting technology in a human-centric, ethical and sustainable way. Our platform consists of generic trust services and capabilities which enable trust to flourish:

  • data platform and a connected data operator network,
  • electronic identity management,
  • consent and MyData operator capabilities and skills,
  • and a connected and open market network for built environment innovations.

These capabilities form the core of our future endeavors and are our tools for creating an impact.




The built environment combines many fields of business, the way towards digital twins requires a holistic multilevel collaboration across verticals. From information flows of construction to real estate innovations and services; from energy to logistics and finance; combined with retail, cleantech and health and wellbeing. Technology enables quite much already but the key is wide collaboration and courage to try new things.

The essence of ecosystem thinking is that no ecosystem actor alone creates user value, but ecosystem actors create it together. And the approach to business and innovation is first and foremost a change of mindset: it cannot be based on single and discrete measure: Purpose, trust, transparency, responsibility and choice lead the way. Our model is based on

  1. Creation of value networks
  2. Identifying challenges together, a snapshot understanding of impact
  3. Brainstorming solutions together, joint development
  4. Facilitating cooperation, new opportunities
  5. Achieving common mission and vision, leading towards success.
