THE CIO DILEMMA
How do you accelerate the delivery of new technologies while simultaneously improving Data Governance and Data Ownership?
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.
This bold initiative will provide CIOs with guidelines for building new digital solutions without the overhead and risk of traditional, copy-based integration.
FOUNDATION 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 guidelines to build new digital services without replicating data.
This leverages innovations including ‘network-based’ data management designs which use centralized, collaborative environments for building new applications, systems, automations, and analytics and eliminate the need for solution-specific databases.
UNIVERSAL ACCESS CONTROLS
The proposed standard for Zero-Copy Integration will also reflect the owner-defined access controls that propel collaboration within network-based data management environments. Because the ecosystem is copy-less, these controls are universal in nature. This is similar in principle to the way society protects the value of intellectual property or currency.
The elimination of copies also has significant positive impact on data usage reporting and compliance auditability.
JOIN TECHNICAL COMMITTEE
For established CIOs in Canada, contributing to this new standard is an incredible opportunity to help accelerate our nation's data-centric future, provide our organizations with the tools to lead the world on Data Governance, and to support the global movement for meaningful data ownership.
