What is the Basic Data Infrastructure framework?

The Basic Data Infrastructure (BDI) framework defines the creation of a perimeter-free data grid supporting multiple concurrent ODS, enabling controlled system-to-system automation of processes initiated by event-based alerts. Zero-trust principles uphold data owner control, ensuring automated authentication, trust assessment, and fine-grained authorization for third-party data access.

Data Grid for Operations and Supply Chain Data Spaces

Operations and Supply Chain Data Spaces (ODS) are logical constructs — networks of parties, both businesses and authorities, created to generate value from the production and distribution of goods and services. Parties may participate in multiple ODS concurrently, with participation frequency and duration varying based on business characteristics.


The automation of representation

The BDI framework also outlines the automation of representation: authentication and verification of mandates for all (temporary) employees of a legal entity, going far beyond the standard procuration registrations in chamber of commerce registries.

In ODS, it is standard business practice to hold an organization responsible for having verified the professional credentials of an employee or contractor acting on behalf of the organization. The verification of the professional credentials required for specific tasks and the accountability of the organization can similarly be automated for seamless and compliant task execution.

Data grid: stack

The BDI framework defines a comprehensive stack of functionality and governance to establish the data grid, providing a structured approach for creating and managing ODS. The stack builds up on both the management and technical level, offering a versatile architecture adaptable to the unique network requirements it serves. This dual-tiered foundation ensures that users of the BDI framework can flexibly model themselves in alignment with the evolving needs of the interconnected networks in which they participate.

What does the stack consist of?

The stack consists of:

  • IT components
  • Semantics
  • Governance
