The internet of things represents this idea of identifying and equipping physical objects with digital object memories (DOMe) in an internet-link structure as a promising approach to achieve digital support in industry processes as well as in our daily life. These DOMes collect information about their status and their environment, provide a common storage place for data exchange (related to this object) and make these data available to later stakeholders of the product lifecycle chain. The need of cross-domain applications and the support for a large, heterogeneous set of memory technology types and formats demands a sophisticated architecture to bring this idea to the market. We propose a digital object memory framework that incorporates a platform for technology and format independent memory storage, a tool chain to handle DOMe-relevant tasks and actions and to provide templates to implement applications that benefit from the given data.
