Cedalio is a platform that uses blockchain technology to ensure that information is auditable by default. With Cedalio, the data used can be traced back to its origin for verification and validation. Moreover, with us, you can have real ownership and portability of your data across the entire supply chain. Users can verify at any point who made what changes and have full traceability of all changes made in the database. This is important to enforce accountability and ensure that data hasn't been tampered with.
This architecture supports a diverse set of functionalities and provides the flexibility for various user roles to interact with the platform, whether for managing data or developing new integrations. It ensures data integrity, security, and ownership while offering scalability and extensibility to adapt to future needs.
Platform Architecture Overview
The Studio serves as the centralized hub for users to interact with various data sources. It's designed for non-developers who are primarily managing sustainability and provenance information. Within the Studio, users can:
Initiate data gathering processes, utilizing custom forms for data collection, integrate APIs for automatic data import, and leverage an AI assistant for processing various documents.
Manage Digital Product Passports, materials, and company products.
Share information with third parties via the Studio interface.
Manage existing data sources and create new ones.
The API provides developers with programmatic access to the platform, offering the ability to:
Access all stored information via a flexible GraphQL interface.
Create new data points for different data sources.
Query information and share data with third parties programmatically.
The API is complemented by a TypeScript SDK to expedite development and platform utilization.
The database is a robust storage solution with distinct capabilities:
Traceability: Each data modification is recorded with blockchain technology, ensuring that records cannot be deleted or altered illegitimately.
Auditability: Leveraging smart contracts to manage access control lists (ACLs), providing transparency and audit trails.
User-Owned data: Companies using Cedalio to digitize their supply chain retain ownership of the collected data.
Data within the database is organized into various data sources, each holding collections of data points. Data sources are categorized by the type of information they contain, such as utilities, certificates, or logistics.
Data Integration and Usage
The platform is designed to be flexible and adaptable, capable of managing various businesses. Data can be combined and transformed in order to meet users' evolving requirements and adhere to different standards and regulations.
Users can combine data from multiple sources to create new visualizations and insights. This is useful not only for dashboards but also for sharing information with different members of the client's supply chain.
Data sources can be combined with arithmetic operations available for data processing. Mainly for managing the measures emission sources for sustainability metrics.
Digital Product Passports are generated by defining a product, its bill of materials, and linking it to the raw materials and certifications from suppliers.
