  • Explanation


    Providers will need to specify or register with this the information, services and twins they intend to offer. Although the information and metadata itself is distributed, from a user point of view, it will be possible to query this as if it were a single catalogue to allow identification of models and data sets that could be combined/analysed together. Indeed, this should be more than just a distributed catalogue: through the use of data virtualisation users will be able to interact with all the data they are authorised to access as if it were a single database.
