Details on the company Jolocom

Jolocom builds a data-handling application. Its decentralized architecture gives ownership and full control over communication and other daily generated data. The application enables comprehensive information management and supercharges collaboration.

The software allows individuals, companies and organizations – the users – to control, manage and connect their data. The novelty of Jolocom’s innovation is that every kind of data can be shared across networks while remaining secure in the hands of the originator. Core to the innovation is the decentralized server and database structure Jolocom proposes.

Jolocom presents the opportunity to implement an entirely new approach to data privacy, data connectivity, as well as data management and sharing. Each user has its dedicated server and database, which can inter-operate with other users’ servers and databases. Users own and control their data. They map their personal information and eventually make it sharable and visible to their peers. A new form of open data communication emerges, which goes beyond the functionality of current databases, similar to long adopted communication technologies of telephone and email.

Many users face the problem of disconnected, inaccessible data sets and of sensitive data-protection issues, hindering the recognition of business opportunities and the driving of innovation. Through Jolocom’s software sharing information and collaboration advances greatly, which becomes increasingly important for driving business and innovation in social and economic terms.
