Advice & Counsel on Using Open Data

 

As experts in Open Data compliance - we have helped over 140 cities across Europe to open and use data - we use the latest international mandates, alongside guidance from the Open Data Institute (ODI), the Open Knowledge Foundation (OKFN) and the United Nations (UN) to develop a strategic list of high-impact datasets for opening quickly and effectively.  Our team can clean the data for opening, or we can help your staff learn the procedures involved to be able to open the data themselves.

 

Strategic Open Data Programmes

 

For clients wishing to implement a cost-effective long term strategy we can help you create an implementation framework with a series of projects that (1) identifies the key champions you need to have onboard to build your own Open Data / Innovation community.  (2) understand the tools and approaches that are available to you to help stimulate the community and unlock value from data, and (3) creates a management plan for the opening and use of data that will generate solutions for your major pain points and challenges.
