Data Provider

A data provider (also called data supplier) is an organisation that provides internal data assets to external parties. A data provider might be any type of organisation, like a company, university, government, or NGO (or even a private individual). Data providers can provide their data free of charge (e.g. as open data) or with paid access with commercial support. Commercial data providers are also called data vendors or data sellers.
