Data has become a first-class element of the web. The Open Data Protocol (OData)
applies web technologies such as HTTP, AtomPub and JSON to enable a wide range of
data sources to be exposed on the web in a simple, secure and interoperable way.
Whether you have a simple collection of reference data, are building a Rich Internet
Application or are building the web API for your web property, the Open Data Protocol
enables you to expose your data and its associated logic as an OData feed. Once
your data is available as an OData feed it can be consumed
by any of the available OData-aware developer libraries/tools, business intelligence
products, visualization components, etc.
