The future is
The Data Collaboration Alliance is a nonprofit that is dedicated to helping the World's people and organizations get full control of their information.
OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
We support technologies and design approaches that minimize data and eliminate copies in order to make universal control possible
We believe that control of data should be in the hands of its rightful owner (person or organization) or a temporary custodian that they appoint
We support frictionless problem-solving driven by owner-defined, universally-enforced access grants, not complex contracts or meaningless consent
Control is the foundation of Data Ownership and Collaborative Intelligence
WHAT WE DO
Community | Research Support | Infrastructure
IT'S YOUR DATA
Joining the alliance offers organizations multiple opportunities to augment their brand, content, leadership, and training programs.
The combination of Data Collaboration and data ownership will define digital transformation for decades to come. I fully support the Data Collaboration Alliance in their efforts to accelerate that future.

GLOBALIZED DATA REQUIRES GLOBAL STANDARDS
CXOs from all sectors are faced with the challenges of data fragmentation
The Data Collaboration Alliance supports Zero-Copy Integration, an emerging global standard that provides a framework for accelerating digital solution development while simultaneously increasing control and ownership of data.
THE CONTROL FLYWHEEL
Current approaches to data management and application design based on silos and copies represent a fundamental barrier to data ownership, governance, portability, auditability, deletion, and collaboration.
Our goal is to advance the technologies, protocols, and standards that will contribute to the establishment of a new global infrastructure defined by control, not chaos.
But how does this work?
Data minimization and the elimination of copies kickstarts the 'Control Flywheel'
The elimination of copies makes meaningful ownership possible via univeral access controls.
Greater efficiency stimulates demand for more projects powered by controlled data.
