GDC uses cloud-based technology to integrate directly with our partners’ systems. This is Data as a Service. Because the data resides on their servers (instead of sending raw data across jurisdictional borders), our partners are able to provide access to more data elements that get refreshed more frequently.
For partners whose data is not available to access through cloud-based API’s, GDC provides a technology enablement service to host and maintain the data on servers in their country. We can also deploy an API service to run in their environment, allowing them to maintain full control while making their data accessible to the GDC platform.
Most in-country data controllers are selective with partnering. They want to do business with parties they trust, and they want to participate in the benefits of the partnership.
GDC understands this. We invest in our data partners, establishing deep relationships with them and providing them with technology to make their information available on our platform. We give them access to a broader market through our marketing and distribution programs, paying fair royalties that reflect the value of their services.
Perhaps most importantly, each data partner in the consortium gets access to resell the global services we offer. This gives our partners a broader range of content to sell to their in-country customers, opening up new business opportunities and revenue streams.
