DEMOCRATIZING INNOVATION

There's a major shift happening within the IT sector where the concept of the "full stack developer" is giving way to a more inclusive and data-centric interpretation of the role.

 

There's no question that the emergence of ‘no code’ and ‘lo code’ technologies have made it easier for more people to get involved in the development of new digital solutions. 

 

However, because these platforms utilize older forms of data integration that copy and fragment data, their use can actually erode data protection.

 

It is critical that democratizing IT does not come at the expense of the human right to privacy or the global movement for increased ownership of personal information.

PRIVACY BY DESIGN

The Data Collaboration University supports free training in the Data Collaboration Methodology.

 

This represents a new approach to digital solution delivery that combines the simplicity of lo code/no code technology with the next-generation data protection associated with the ‘Zero-Copy Integration’ framework.

 

Zero-Copy Integration is currently a draft Standard in Canada that is also being introduced to international standards organizations.

Zero-Copy Integration leverages hyperlinks to integrate data. This eliminates the need to create new databases (data silos) or exchange copies of sensitive data when building new digital services.

GOVERNANCE

All datasets, metadata, and data domains within the Data Collaboration University platform are controlled by its owners who manage access, custodianship, and deletion and benefit from the added transparency of precision usage reporting.

 

The Data Skills Council itself is governed through direct engagement by members and there is no hierarchy or steering committee at this time.
