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.
