“A data contract is an agreement between a data producer and its consumers. It not only describes the data but also its expected behavior by advertising the data quality rules the data needs to obey, as well as service levels, stakeholders, roles, and pricing. Data contracts should follow an open and extensible standard like the Open Data Contract Standard (ODCS), adopted by many organizations. ODCS leverages YAML and can, therefore, easily be versioned and governed.”
