Slide 4: …if we can get it.

However, we need to transfer the data from the location where it is being generated to the location where it can be analyzed, that is, to the location where the data scientists can do their thing. Also, once transferred, the data might have to be stored for later use at the analysis location.

Clearly, this transfer and storage needs to be done in a standardized way, that is, in a way that is clear, and does not obfuscate the data in any way. Thus, the [TAB]syntax of the standard should be clear and well-understood, its [TAB]semantics should also be clear and well-understood, and, finally, it should be [TAB]extensible, as at the moment of speaking, we cannot foresee which event data will be generated and analyzed in the future, like map makers in the eighteenth century could not have foreseen the need for a map with metro lines.
