THE CXO DILEMMA
"How do we accelerate the delivery of new technologies while simultaneously improving Data Governance and Data Protection?"
- Virtually every technology leader working today
The Data Collaboration Alliance is a member of the Technical Committee for Zero-Copy Integration, a proposed Standard being developed by the CIO Strategy Council of Canada.
The goal of this bold initiative is to provide technology leaders and innovators with a data-centric framework for building new digital solutions without the delay and risk associated with traditional, copy-based integration.
FRAMEWORK OF CONTROL
Canada's Chief Information Officers and technology leaders are faced with a growing challenge when it comes to data governance.
On one hand, they are required to accelerate the launch of new digital services in order to take advantage of 5G, IoT, artificial intelligence, cloud-hosting, and other leading-edge technologies.
At the same time, regulators and advocacy groups are demanding that more control be given to the people and organizations who contribute 'digital raw materials' to these services in the form of their data, which can include their most sensitive information.
The proposed standard for Zero-Copy Integration is intended to provide startups, nonprofits, enterprise companies, and public sector agencies with a framework to build new digital services without replicating operational data.
It proposed the leveraging of modern 'network-based' data management architectures to create collaborative environments for building new applications, systems, and automations and eliminates the need for solution-specific databases and app-specific access controls.
OWNER-DEFINED ACCESS CONTROLS
The proposed standard for Zero-Copy Integration uses owner-defined access controls as the pre-condition for data sharing and collaboration. The copy-less nature of modern data architectures makes such controls universal in nature, providing an approach to data protection that is similar to protections on intellectual property and currency.
The elimination of copies also enables precision data usage reporting for simplified compliance, auditability, and transparency.
JOIN TECHNICAL COMMITTEE
Contributing to this new standard is an opportunity for technology leaders in Canada to accelerate our nation's data-centric future and support the global movement for meaningful data ownership.
