Mydex launch – the personal data store is here

Today sees the launch of Mydex’s personal data store. As highlighted here previously, Mydex’s prototype allows individuals to create their own personal data stores

The objective of empowering individuals to manage their data online, controlling what type of data is shared and with which organisations, is no mere twinkle in Mydex’s eye – the list of organisations participating in the pilot announced today is impressive and includes the Department for Work and Pensions (via its TellUsOnce project), the London Boroughs of Brent and Croydon and the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, along with a number of observing organisations and contributors. External verification is to be provided by Experian.

The objective of the pilot, as Mydex puts it, is to educate participants in the use and benefits of the personal data store system, which will subsequently support the next stage in developing new and valuable personal data store services.

Datanomy will be following progress closely and reporting back on the pilot on these pages.
