Single source of truth (SSOT)

The single source of truth, abbreviates SSOT, is a term taken from data management. It is also sometimes known as the single point of truth (SPOT).


A single source truth (SSOT) is a central data platform in companies which is accessed by all other systems in principle. Ideally, this is a bidirectional connection, so that data adjustments are automatically taken from other systems and maintained in the single source of truth (SSOT). A single source of truth (SSOT) is one of the foundations of guaranteeing the consistency of master data in companies.
