Have you ever thought how the computing space would look like if all machines could explain and annotate the data using one single language? How the complex integrations across systems could be made so much easier if the underlying data models were readily available?

We at Common Data Model team have a bold vision to break through the enterprise silos and democratize the data for the benefit of the customers.

We built a declarative specification that establishes standards and defines schemas in enterprise data space, enabling more effective interoperability between solutions offered by Microsoft and those of partners. We are striving to establish a healthy ecosystem of technologies, programmatic interfaces, tools, and services, that span across business space and provide seamless data integrations, where raw data is infused with semantic information via metadata structures.
