About Cassandra

CASSANDRA’s main strategic goal is to improve supply chain visibility and business execution as well as the efficiency and effectiveness for government supervision.
This will be facilitated by data sharing and a new approach towards risk assessment.
The project will enable and facilitate the combination of existing information sources in supply chains into a new data sharing (“information pipeline”) concept which improves visibility and thus also assessment of risks by both business and government. A new approach in risk assessment will make sure that government can use data more efficiently and therefore improve overall effectiveness.
