Current situation

Reference data is often managed by IT specialists in product sheets. Outdated and rigid standards are still mostly used for data exchange.

Consequence: reusing data efficiently is practically impossible. When data is exchanged between different systems, errors occur and data exchange often involves high levels of IT investment.

Desired situation

Make your data easily available for others (internal and external) to use in any application. You make this possible by standardizing both meaning and data exchange.

The added value of working with Reference Data (or Object Type Library) has now been proven and its use is becoming more widespread. But most applications for managing such a library, are not suitable for publishing in Linked data. We believe in the power of open standards and believe that it will be used more and more for data exchange.

From whom

Information managers, data managers, and domain experts capture information in a structured way in a Reference Data Library (RDL). Finding and using this data, in any application, becomes much more efficient and effective with an RDL. This applies both to use in applications within your company and to exchanging standardized data with customers and suppliers.

Unleashing the power of Interoperability 

The modern IT landscape of organizations depends on multiple software collaborating as a process. Each software works differently and stores data in its own formats, impeding smooth information exchange both internally and externally. This is why the concept of interoperability is receiving increasing attention. But what exactly is interoperability and how can it future proof […]
