Open Data marketplace launches
Australian fintech firm Adatree has launched Adatree Exchange, a service that streamlines how organisations discover and procure regulated Consumer Data Right (CDR)-ready, third-party software capabilities. The company says this represents a world first.
The Open Data marketplace provides customers with a one-stop shop to ‘supercharge’ CDR data. Before the Exchange, businesses would engage a CDR intermediary to procure the raw data and then go out to market to find additional services to help digest that data or functions to apply to their unique business needs. Following this, they would have to integrate with them and make sure the business meets the CDR outsourced service provider technical and security requirements too.
Now, businesses can leverage the Adatree Exchange to find a variety of CDR-ready, third-party services to access capabilities like data categorisation, customer verification, data enrichment, credit application automation, de-identification, product comparison and account verification.
Many businesses are still unsure of what they could do with CDR data, and they face the challenge of finding service providers that are accredited and competent in working with CDR data. The Adatree Exchange aims to help businesses see the possibilities available to accredited data recipients.
“When Adatree launched at the infancy of the Consumer Data Right in Australia, it was created as a data recipient platform for organisations to access CDR data. As the industry reaches maturity, customers are wanting more options and capabilities around what they can do with this data. We wanted to give customers everything they need to use CDR data to its full potential," said Alex Scriven, Chief Operating Officer at Adatree.
“We’re extremely excited about the future of the Adatree Exchange — the possibilities are endless as Open Data advances further in Australia. We have already begun to curate, vet and integrate with organisations across all different sectors as part of our Exchange, and we look forward to working with more experts as they join the world’s first Open Banking marketplace.”
The Adatree Exchange started organically, with Adatree’s clients and prospects wanting to access data initially, then asking for different use cases, augmentation and transformation to be built out. While Adatree will continue to build out its own capabilities to transform data, the Exchange will accelerate the ability for Adatree’s clients to access a wide breadth of capabilities from many different best-of-breed companies.
Adatree is launching with 10 participants on the platform including energy comparison platform Accurassi, global data analytics provider Personetics, end-to-end digital comparison platform CIMET, product recommendation engine Stryd, auditing firm AssuranceLab, instant finance app for lenders and brokers Piico, AWS-specialist cloud infrastructure company DNX, leading cybersecurity firm Astero, turnkey cloud infrastructure Citadel, and credit risk and data science consultancy Kadre.
All Exchange participants are audited outsourced service providers (OSPs), whereby Adatree conducts stringent compliance checks to ensure data will be managed to the highest CDR standards.
