This standard defines a big data governance, metadata management and machine-readable reference architecture to enable scalability, findability, accessibility, interoperability and reusability of datasets among corporate heterogenous and cross-domain repositories. The standard focuses on achieving data interoperability by utilizing persistent identifiers (PIDs) to enable:
(1) a standard metadata registry for data discovery using a machine-readable format,
(2) a standard data type registry for data consumption using a machine-actionable format, and
(3) standard end-point services to convert data values between different types.
