The data value chain is an important concept that involves identifying the various activities and roles in manufacturing a non-tangible data product. In our information society, data increasingly becomes a commodity and the basis for many products and services. With this portal we strive to balance the demand and supply of data, with the aim of generating a new Economic Data Ecosystem that has the Web of Data as its core.
Through the Demand and Supply as a Service (DSAAS), we enable data producers to advertise the data they produce, and thus data consumers can search for the data they require. The data consumers can also publish a request for specific data, if this is not already provided by a producer. In this way, we aim to enable and encourage data re-use and exploitation, providing the means to generate value through a data product.
