The Data Collaboration Alliance is a nonprofit dedicated to helping the World's people and organizations get full control of their information.  

 We see control (through the elimination of data silos and copies) as the key to supporting meaningful Data Ownership and unlocking the transformative power of global Collaborative Intelligence.

OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES

UNIVERSAL
CONTROL

We support technologies and methodologies that minimize data and eliminate copies in order to make meaningful control possible

UNIVERSAL
OWNERSHIP

 We believe Data Ownership is a human right and control should be in the hands of the rightful owner or a temporary custodian they appoint

UNIVERSAL
ACCESS

 We support data-centric innovation that's powered by collaboration between people and systems and protected by owner-defined access grants
