Ringgold Solutions from CCC help clients to make sense of their organizational data. Disambiguated data enriched with the Ringgold Identifier, structured metadata and organizational hierarchies enables clients to make better business decisions. The Ringgold ID allows data to be linked across systems internally and across the scholarly communications ecosystem. The Ringgold ID, Identify Database, and Identify Audit Service were developed to solve the problem of an increasingly complex organizational landscape. We aim to provide a common point of reference for institutions which rely organizational information in local systems or to exchange data with customers and partners.
