Standard Data Identifier

The VendEx Identifier, or VID*, is a patented alphanumeric code standardizing the categorization and identification of data. The VID is a critical foundation for the digital transformation of data management processes and will revolutionize how data and analytics are bought, sold, contracted, and invoiced.

While developed originally for financial services market data, the VID patent is extensible to all data, with broad application for regulations, contracts, usage rights, invoices, and data catalogs. The VID:

  • Standardizes how data is cataloged 
  • Transforms how data is defined for the purposes of understanding data usage rights, a critical market-wide issue.
  • Changes how data is contracted and transacted
  • 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.

*U.S. Patent No. 11,966,878
