Microsoft, Adobe and SAP are out to prove the Open Data Initiative is 'open'
At its Ignite IT Pro conference in September 2018, Microsoft made a big deal out of a new Open Data Initiative (ODI), which Microsoft launched with two other of its partners: Adobe and SAP. Today, March 27, Microsoft announced some other companies who'd be joining in via an ODI Partner Advisory Council. The first 12 companies joining the ODI Partner Council are Accenture, Amadeus, Capgemini, Change Healthcare, Cognizant, EY, Finastra, Genesys, Hootsuite, Inmobi, Sprinklr and WPP . Microsoft officials said they're continuing to recruit and add additional ODI backers. During last year's Ignite unveiling of ODI, officials shared next-to-no real details about ODI. In a separate Ignite session, however, Microsoft did reveal a bit more about some of the components and plans for ODI. Officials said to expect Microsoft's Common Data Model (CDM) to become part of the ODI and to help provide unified schema and semantics, giving customers a better chance of achieving the Holy Grail: A single view of the customer.
