Extract from "Data Transfer Project Overview and Fundamentals"
Abstract The Data Transfer Project (DTP) extends data portability beyond a user’s ability to download a copy of their data from their service provider (“provider”), to providing the user the ability to initiate a direct transfer of their data into and out of any participating provider.
The Data Transfer Project is an open source initiative to encourage participation of as many
providers as possible. The DTP will enhance the data portability ecosystem by reducing the
infrastructure burden on both providers and users, which should in turn increase the number of
services offering portability. The protocols and methodology of the DTP enable direct,
service-to-service data transfer with streamlined engineering work.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!
