In April 1956 the SS Ideal X set sail from Newark carrying 58 large metal boxes then known as “Trailer Vans”. The Ideal X was a modified WWII-era T2 tanker, and became the initial member of the world’s most successful container fleet. Soon the intermodal shipping container was standardized and purpose-built vessels—what we now call container ships—were created to carry this payload. Eventually loading cranes, trains, trucks and even software and sensors were designed to optimize delivery of the standard container. The world’s transportation infrastructure was revolutionized and global trade exploded.Microservices, Containers And The Digital Dialectic, by Peter Wagner and Martin Giles

What is needed in our software world is a unifying “container” infrastructure to provide the same scalable efficiency that containers brought to the physical world. Although technologies like Docker can provide such containers, they do not provide a “container-oriented” data model.

Dataparency provides just such an infrastructure.

With its Entity-centric, Resource-oriented Data Model, aspect definitions, and available GraphQL implementation, you have the ability to define and manage data specifically to the needs of the container.
