Information Ownership Network
iOWN is a Data Collaboration Alliance initiative that is supported by a network of privacy, compliance, and IT professionals whose mission is to advance data ownership and the future of applications through experimentation and the publication of free resources.
WHO SHOULD JOIN?
Data Privacy Consultants
This enables iOWN members to contribute (via API or directly on platform) and collaborate on data while retaining highly-granular control over its access and operationalization.
Dataware reflects a modern approach to data management that is defined by an interconnected network of datasets. The network enables copyless data integration and this in turn supports the Data Collaboration framework.
FUTURE OF APPLICATIONS
The iOWN operations team is committed to building an ecosystem of complementary tools and Privacy-Enabling Technology (PET) including Dataware, AL/ML, Blockchain, and Hedera Hashgraph. The goal is to create a World-class environment for building proofs of concept and publishing free resources that support the advancement of data ownership and inclusive IT.
Qualifying professionals join our Slack channel where we discuss and prioritize "collabs" which are projects for testing concepts within data ownership or creating resources to be shared with privacy and compliance professionals worldwide.
Members also receive login credentials to the Dataware platform where they collaborate on datasets under the protection of universal access controls.
WHAT WE BUILD
ANALYTICS / DASHBOARDS
AUTOMATIONS + BOTS
All datasets, metadata, and data domains within the iOWN 'zero-copy' ecosystem are controlled by its owners who manage access, custodianship, and deletion and benefit from the added transparency of precision usage reporting.
The community itself is governed through a combination of direct engagement from members and a rotating Operations Committee that is elected by members.
HOW TO APPLY
The iOWN Council is now in BETA and we are currently accepting applications from experienced privacy and compliance professionals, CIOs, CDOs, CISOs, app developers, UX leaders, and researchers who are interested in advancing data ownership and the future of applications.
