The VendEx Identifier (VID) standardizes the categorization and identification of all data, establishing provenance and streamlining data transactions.

SAN FRANCISCOApril 25, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — VendEx Solutions today announced it has been granted a patent for the VendEx Identifier (VID), an alphanumeric code standardizing the categorization and identification of data. VendEx is a San Francisco-based SaaS company with offices in New York and Charleston, SC, as well as LondonSingapore, and Lund, Sweden.

The VID is a critical foundation for the digital transformation of data management processes and will revolutionize how data and analytics (collectively, “data”) are bought, sold, contracted, and invoiced. It standardizes how data is cataloged and transforms how it is defined for the purposes of understanding data usage rights, a critical market-wide issue. The VID will change how data is contracted and transacted and enable real-time invoice reconciliation processes. Critically, the VID identifies the ownership and provenance of data, which is necessary for the control of intellectual property as generative AI accelerates the demand for data in training large language models.
