Why is it that when I develop a good design, others try to patent it? I built this design for a different government agency (long before Secure Symbologies Inc), and now I find that this individual is attempting to patent my work? http://www.freepatentsonline.com/20100169639.pdf
Well, you might as well have it now, I don’t know if the patent will be granted to them (to him really), but if it’s not – you should take advantage of the design. This is a design that secures the data in a “true” Data Vault, using the Data Vault modeling components as the heart of an Operational Data Warehouse. In other words, the Data Vault Model finally lives up to its’ name: Data Vault, and offers a secure place where information can be “locked away.”
Secure Symbologies is the company I built the E-Pedigree track & trace for, Bill Jeffries (listed on the patent) was their CTO. I don’t know if the company even exists anymore. It would be a shame to see this patent go through after all the work I put in. It’s the design that put SSI (secure symbologies) on the map after all, it’s the design behind the E-Pedigree Track and Trace drug manufacturing system I am sharing with you on the blog here.
I hope you enjoy the design, it’s worth a run-through (or at least a once-over). It’s a systems architecture, the Data Model I built for them is intellectual property, that I will see if I can post openly.
If you want to see the in-roads that the Data Vault made in Track & Trace, just type in the following phrase to google:
“data vault” e-pedigree
It should garner some interesting results.
