The DMA data-service ecosystem encompass of the following roles:

  • The Data Provider (DP) is an entity (data platform / natural person) that has data in whatever form and delivers it on demand or shelves it at the Broker.

  • A Service Provider (SP) creates services such as enrichment / analysis / visualization / fusion of data, which are provisioned by an infrastructure provider or a data Broker.

  • An Infrastructure Provider (IP) offers storage space or computing power.

  • The Broker concept is usually associated with an intermediary involved in negotiations or transactions. In a data market, the broker facilitates the mapping between offerings and demands of data and services.

  • Data Market Customers (DMC) require the data or data services for mostly professional reasons, such as statistical analysis or for app development. The DMCs define the demand for data and services.

  • End User (EU): Entity consuming (buying) applications, visualizations, etc., contracting directly with the DMC.
