RDA 8th Plenary Joint meeting: IG Brokering and IG Data Fabric

Meeting title: Joint meeting of IG Brokering and IG Data Fabric

Groups: IG Brokering and IG Data Fabric

Group chairs:  Stefano Nativi and Jay Pearlman

Please give a brief introduction describing the activities and scope of the group(s)

The Brokering IG, established in 2013, aims to discuss the overarching concepts and frameworks for achieving interoperability across different disciplinary data systems, leaving the systems autonomous and avoiding pushing them towards any specific implementation model. Such technological solutions are commonly called brokering frameworks. They generally provide mediation and adaptation services, in a transparent way for the Users –either intermediate or final.
Brokers can play a facilitating role in the landscape depicted by the IG Data Fabric, especially as to data find, access, evaluation and use.
