A small set of lightweight 'data package' standards and patterns providing a base structure on which tooling and integration can build.
Tooling & Integration
Making it easy to use and publish data packages from your existing apps and workflows whether that's Excel, R, or Hadoop!
Outreach & Community
Engaging and evangelizing around the concepts, standards and tooling and building a community of users and contributors.
Find out more about our Vision
There's too much friction working with data - friction getting data, friction processing data, friction sharing data.
This friction stops people: stops them creating, sharing, collaborating with data.
It stops the cycle of find, improve, share that would make for a dynamic and productive data ecosystem.
We need to make an open data ecosystem that, like open-source for software, is useful and attractive to those without any principled interest, the vast majority who simply want the best tool for the job, the easiest route to their goal.
