About the Data Collaboration Alliance
The Data Collaboration Alliance is a nonprofit that’s dedicated to establishing CONTROL as the basis for meaningful Data Ownership and global Collaborative Intelligence.
Our approach of eliminating data silos and copy-based data integration is similar to how societies already protect the value of currency, identities, and intellectual property - and it works for data, too. Our advisors include the Executive Director of the Mozilla Foundation and the ex-CIO of Dropbox.
In concert with our partners, our programs are helping to build the collaboration-based future we want to see:
Free Community offering open datasets, pro tools, and data-centric learning
Advocacy for standards supporting the future of data and apps
