Sharing data

Any corporate and public organisation that is producing and harvesting data assets can contribute them to the BigDataGrapes data marketplace. Using the BigDataGrapes technology any organization can share information about its data and transform the data assets into a revenue stream. The contribution workflow includes big data tools that help the data provider to enrich data and share them with all the users of the data marketplace.
