Abstract

Data sharing across organizational boundaries is vital for various use cases with social, economic, and environmental benefits in the data economy. Data infrastructures, including data catalogs, represent an important incentive mechanism for cross-organizational data sharing. While historically centralized, we propose a federated architecture for data catalogs, which is preferable due to rising concerns about data sovereignty, trust, and reliability. However, there is currently no guidance on the design of federated data catalogs for data sharing. This paper presents the current status and preliminary findings of an Action Design Research project within the Eclipse Dataspace Components project. We report on the motivation for leveraging federated architectures for data catalogs in data sharing and present (a) meta-requirements for data catalogs in this area and (b) a preliminary set of user stories sketching the requirements for a federated data catalog.

FEDERATED DATA CATALOGS FOR DATA SHARING – TOWARDS DESIGN PRINCIPLES

Data sharing across organizational boundaries is vital for various use cases with social, economic, and environmental benefits in the data economy. Data infrastructures, including data catalogs, represent an important incentive mechanism for cross-organizational data sharing. While historically centralized, we propose a federated architecture for data catalogs, which is preferable due to rising concerns about data sovereignty, trust, and reliability. However, there is currently no guidance on the design of federated data catalogs for data sharing. This paper presents the current status and preliminary findings of an Action Design Research project within the Eclipse Dataspace Components project. We report on the motivation for leveraging federated architectures for data catalogs in data sharing and present (a) meta-requirements for data catalogs in this area and (b) a preliminary set of user stories sketching the requirements for a federated data catalog.
