WHAT WE VALUE

Control

We value the ability to CONTROL data as the essential starting point for privacy, collaboration,  and accelerated innovation. There's no such thing as "data ownership" or "data protection" without first establishing control.

Collaboration

The intelligent enterprise of the future will use collaboration on data between people and systems as the basis of accelerated innovation. The future is data-centric, not code centric.

Transparency

We are committed to the elimination of data replication in order to enhance the auditability of data usage. This is the basis for improved trust.

Inclusiveness

The universal language of data is democratizing IT and enabling a much wider range of people to participate in innovation. We also recognize the role of artificial intelligences in the Data Collaboration methodology.
