  • A Cloud Platform Designed for Experiencing Data 5
  • The Cornerstones of Open DataAccessible, rich citizen experience in Empower employees to be more productiveany channel, on any device in delivering servicesOpen ubiquitous APIs enable limitless Engage and give constituents a voice 6innovation
  • Mission: Liberating Data Drives Impact and Outcomes SOCRATA EXISTS TO REINVENT THE WAY DATA IS EXPERIENCED 7
  • Three Core Benefits of the Open Data Platform End User Experience Developer Enablement Publisher Empowerment
  • Open Data: What’s Next  Advantages of an Open Data Platform  Modernize the way Hawaii uses and shares information  Make data easy to find, explore, use & visualize  Enhance the way organizations engage with audiences  Empower developers to build value-enhancing apps with data  Provide a common data platform for more cost effective service delivery 9
  • Three Simple Goals for Open Data 1. Make it easier to publish and share data 2. Make information accessible 3. Make information reusable 10
  • Data is Too Inaccessible by the People Who Need ItOrganizations have Analysts, researchersvast amounts of data & journalists, citizens, civic developers &they want to share but internal programmersdoing so is expensive want to understandand difficult. and make use of this data but can’t because it’s not accessible enough.

  • What data to people want? How important do you think the following types of public data that Federal, State and Local governments publish are?Survey by: Vision Critical, 1,000 nationally represented adultsCo-sponsored by: Sunlight Foundation, Personal Democracy Forum, Socrata, Govloop, Code for America, eaves.ca
  • The Most Compelling Datasets 1. Geospatial data. People love maps. 2. Public safety data of all kinds: a. Traffic fatalities, moving violations by highway, etc. b. Crime c. Environmental safety d. Complaint database 3. Salary data. White House: http://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/disclosures/annual- records/2011. 4. Health data. Most health departments have a wealth of interesting and useful health measure data. 5. Expenditure data. Citizens want to see where the state spends money.

  • Evolving Open Data Tactical Goals for Open Data in Hawaii • Use data.hawaii.gov as a platform to manage and disseminate all data- driven content • Use data.hawaii.gov as to report performance metrics • Metrics that relate to data driven goals • Provide all key transparency, ethics, and accountability data • Including revenue, expenses, contracts, public meetings, lobbying and political campaign data. • Identify and replace expensive, legacy web apps • Replace them with easy-to-deploy and easy-to-maintain Socrata data experiences. • Identify and consolidate redundant silos of data. • Take advantage of economies of scope in the platform, as a result of unlimited reuse of the same data for multiple purposes and through multiple interfaces. • Design and manage an App Contest • incentivize the creation, deployment, and long-term sustainability of targeted community apps, based on local needs. 33
  • Recommendations for Open Data 1. Set your data free 2. Pick a partner agency that “gets it” 3. Pick one solid use-case for a data-driven site and roll that out 4. Public and Private Collaboration 5. Kick-start innovation: lead by example. Accelerate. 34

  • Typical Architecture for Any Data-Centric Website Hardware Operating System Databases Custom API (usually “coming soon”) Web Servers with UI Primitives • Find & Discover Data • Download Data • Analyze Data – sort, search & filter • Socialize Data? • Visualize Data A Program-specific Presentation Layer 40
  • Silos of Redundancy as Independent, Isolated Programs Legacy Approach Silos of redundancy • Hardware • Databases • Operating Systems • Custom APIs • Web Server Tier Inconsistent user experience Inconsistent API Expensive & wasteful 41
  • A Shared Common Cloud Data Platform Offers Big ROI Socrata Social Data Platform Shared Socrata Cloud Architecture Abstracted Program-specific UI  Only Presentation Layer is Unique  Everything Else is Shared in Common Delivered in the Cloud Consistent UI & API Very Cost Effective Due to: • Economies of Scale • Economies of Scope 42
