Microsoft supports the OData technology and has released it under its Open Specification Promise. Microsoft is the only sponsor of the gallery, which also includes the OData Service Validation Tool.

The Open Data Protocol is a web protocol, based on HTTP, Atom and JSON, for exchanging data over the web. Since it doesn't matter on which systems and in which formats the data is available, the protocol is also suitable for use in heterogeneous IT environments.
