The way to make your master data FAIR

  • Insight

According to the FAIR principles, data should be as Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable as possible. These principles were created because data is becoming more complex and produced faster, and we are becoming increasingly dependent on it. And perhaps most importantly, organizations need agreements and protocols to collaborate through data exchange. But the big question is: how should I organize FAIR Master Data?

1. How should I make my master data FAIR?

By publishing master data over the Internet, it is findable by a broad audience and accessible according to open Internet protocols, which is in line with the FAIR principles for data. Using existing mechanisms of the Web is an essential catalyst for this. With these, you can make data available for the browser or in another application and describe the data and data structure intelligently. It thus becomes easier for users to find, search and apply enterprise content.

2. What is the best way to share my master data?

Anyone can publish information on the Internet. In fact, Internet protocols are openly accessible. However, they are often technical. For that reason, it is convenient to use a software application that helps to link data correctly and then share it, just as web pages can be linked together. The software application can then apply the necessary technical knowledge without the user needing that knowledge. This way, you can publish data at the touch of a button and then communicate with your audience.

3. Why should I use Laces to share my master data?

These topics are relevant to those wishing to reuse their data and have machines automatically find and process their data to help people do so. These so-called ‘FAIR Guiding Principles’ (for scientific data management and stewardship) were published in Scientific […]


What is an OTL [OTL and RDL explained]

Certainly, you’re probably wondering what exactly OTL stands for. If you Google it, you’d be met with puzzling results like ‘Out-To-Lunch’ or ‘One-True-Love,’ but that’s not what OTL means. The term OTL, which stands for Object Type Library or Objecttypenbibliotheek in Dutch, was coined by the Dutch Road Authorities. However, the concept behind it is […]


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 […]
