Die Vermessung des Datenuniversums Datenintegration mithilfe des Statistikstandards SDMX (Measuring the Data Universe: Data Integration Using the Statistics Standard SDMX) (Book cover)

Nowadays explosively growing data worlds increasingly determine our professional and private life. The rapid increase in the amount of globally available data, which is fuelled by search engines and social networks but also by new technical possibilities such as Big Data, offers a great opportunity. But no matter which endeavour is to be undertaken - driving the block chain revolution or making smartphones even smarter - success will be determined by how well it is possible to integrate the required data; i.e. to collect, to link and to evaluate it. Here, one crucial success factor is the introduction of a cross-domain order system in combination with a standardization of the data structure.

Using everyday examples, the authors show how the concepts of statistics provide the basis for a universal and standardized presentation of any kind of information. They introduce the international statistics standard SDMX (Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange) and describe the profound changes that have been made possible by the introduction of this standard and the related order system for the international statistics community.
