About this Blog

As supply chains become increasingly globalized they continue to share information "one-up/one-down". That's inefficient because as the supply chains lengthen they become more specialized, more fragmented and more unsustainable. Product managers scramble with inventory shortages, "bullwhip effects" and product recalls. There are hopeful signs of change. One is the increasing usage of personal mobile devices by managers and consumers seeking real-time enterprise information about materials and ingredient sources. Another is the push by the major search engines, (Google, Bing, Apple, etc.) for navigational "one answer" search using semantic technologies. Another is found in the emerging standards for interoperable information exchange at the level of key data elements. But enterprise data is a proprietary asset that must be selectively shared to be efficiently shared. Local content-addressable storage connected in the Cloud (Git, CCNx etc) is the final piece of the puzzle for flattening the "bullwhip effect". To overcome the fear factors that keep most enterprise data locked up in data silos, the globally patented Common Point Authoring™ (CPA) system critically provides selective sharing with informational objects verified by their own data.

Comme les chaînes d'approvisionnement deviennent de plus en plus mondialisés, ils continuent à partager des informations "one-up/one-down". C'est inefficace parce que les chaînes d'approvisionnement s'allongent, ils deviennent plus spécialisées, plus fragmenté et moins durable. Les gestionnaires se démènent avec des ruptures de stocks, "effets bullwhip» et les rappels de produits. Il ya des signes encourageants de changement. La première est l'utilisation croissante des appareils mobiles personnels par les gestionnaires et les consommateurs qui cherchent des informations d'entreprise en temps réel sur les matériaux et les sources d'ingrédients. Une autre est la poussée par les principaux moteurs de recherche, (Google, Bing, Apple, etc) pour la navigation recherche "une réponse" à l'aide des technologies sémantiques. Un autre se trouve dans les nouvelles normes pour l'échange d'informations interopérables au niveau des éléments de données clés. Mais données de l'entreprise est un bien propre qui doit être partagée de manière sélective à partager efficacement. Stockage adressable par contenu local connecté au Cloud (Git, CCNx etc) est la dernière pièce du puzzle pour aplatir l'effet «coup de fouet». Pour surmonter les facteurs de peur que de conserver les données plus l'entreprise enfermés dans des silos de données, le système breveté mondialement Common Point Authoring ™ (CPA) prévoit la critique partage sélectif avec des objets informationnels vérifiées par leurs propres données.

Silona Bonewald: Open Banking, metrics and money

The following entry entitled Open Banking, metrics and money and posted by Silona Bonewald on Friday, September 25th, 2009 to her blog, Persona Prime:

metrics metrics metrics

With an openbank I get to prove a concept with the most old fashioned metric there is – money…

for what is money than the most generally accepted metric?

I want to educate people about the ownership of their data. No better way than to attach it to their money.

Show them that Data is the new money.

No better way to prove to businesses that people care than to make alot of money off of it.

No better way to get other banks to follow suit than to take money away from them.

yep I am a bit of a more pragmatic gal these days…

Here's my comment ....


Truly, data is becoming more and more the 'new money' ....

Data ownership matters because it holds forth the promise of empowering people with much more technological and political control of their information than that provided by conventional information technologies and legislated confidentiality protections.

Give people the opportunity to profit or otherwise benefit from their data products in the form of granular objects, and their valuable data will, ironically, become more accessible to all. Give people the opportunity to familiarly bank their data like they bank their money, and watch the political dynamics shift favorably toward a more data transparent, and data secure, world.

First, there was money. Then there came the banking of money. Now is the time for the Information Age to shift into a Data Banking Age full of new services, and new opportunities, not unlike those brought to us, and facilitated by, our very successful monetary banking systems.

But lest the reader thinks that you and I are too much out in 'left field', or that we are being too idealistic, I'd like to cite what Microsoft and the Information Card Foundation are currently doing that is bringing a realism to the idealism.

Windows CardSpace (aka Microsoft Information Cards), part of the .NET stack, is Microsoft's client software for the Identity Metasystem, an interoperable architecture for digital identity that enables people to have and employ a collection of digital identities based on multiple underlying technologies, implementations, and providers. When an Information Card-enabled application or website wishes to obtain information about the user, the application or website requests the publication of a particular set of claims authored by the user. The CardSpace user interface then appears, switching the display to the CardSpace service, which displays the user's registered identities. The user selects their InfoCard to verify their identity.

Kim Cameron, Chief Identity Officer, Microsoft, is seeking to extend Microsoft's Information Cards with 'minimum disclosures' (that is, claims granularly derived from Information Cards). See "Proposal for a Common Identity Framework: A User-Centric Identity Metasystem" by Kim Cameron, Reinhard Posch, Kai Rannenberg on October 9, 2008.

The granular control of identity in the form of claims is, I suggest, a form of 'data banking', and a form of technological 'data ownership'. Microsoft's CardSpace is now officially being marketed in the context of the 'Geneva Framework', a Claims Based Access Platform. By marketing its Geneva Framework, Microsoft is bringing data banking and data ownership closer and closer to the mainstream.
