R&D community across the globe is moving toward FAIR Data Principles. More and more funding agencies are requiring that data created by and used for research need to be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR). NI already has made great strides towards metadata-rich data, such as industry-standard open source TDM/TDMS formats.
The next logical step is to help NI customers to comply with FAIR Data Principles requirements. The best way to support NI customers will be the development of TDM/TDMS API for major public data repositories, such as Harvard's dataverse.org etc.
