An Online Community Focused on Data Management

The Data Cookbook not only allows your organization to agree on and share definitions and specifications internally, it also allows you to participate in the community of Data Cookbook users across the world. A number of consortia and agencies publish their definitions to the Data Cookbook so their member institutions can be confident that they generate reports that meet those requirements.

The foundation of good decision-making begins with human judgment and intuition, while being supported through accurate data. A community allows folks to learn from each other, network with peers with similar issues, and improve their judgment. The desire for this community, the Data Cookbook Community, is to connect companies, organizations and institutions to help lighten reporting burden and provide clarity with information such as data definitions. The public availability of this information helps any organization in any industry deal with the increasing complexity of data governance, reporting, and data definitions.  The Community allows for the browsing for definitions and data Specifications done by others as well as browse Community organizations.  

 
The Community:
  • Is one source to consult for all external data governance and reporting needs (including definitions). This centralized repository eases up communication demands and streamline reporting processes

  • Aligns an organization’s content with other organizations to compare similar terms and definitions, providing greater clarity in a broader environment of increasing reporting demands

  • Provides networking with peers who are actively solving (or have solved) the same or similar problems facing your organization. Learn from others by gathering information from them to gain efficiency

  • Saves time by re-using specifications and definitions of others

Data Cookbook Private Communities


The Data Cookbook can also be configured to allow companies, organizations or institutions to join a private community, for example colleges and universities within a state system. Definitions and specifications (including technical details) can be shared among these organizations without any obligation to publish to the public community.  This allows organizations the chance to collaborate on common reporting efforts and share technical details with each other securely and easily.  Forums are included for further discussions among the community.  Contact us about opportunities for private communities with your group of companies, institutions or organizations.
