About Talk

Data autonomy is the ability to control data anywhere, anytime. It is about storing, running and managing data for cloud native, virtualization, and legacy environments both on-premise and in the cloud. The SODA Foundation is embarking on a mission to deliver open data autonomy for end users. To tackle this formidable task, SODA has brought together a community of global innovators to collaborate and contribute to this open source project.
