    8. 8. Organisational Setting • Administrative steering power by municipal directorate • De-facto independent departments with broad scope for action, limited co-operation • Virtual OGD-department: ICT, PR, Economy, labour & statistics, data protection, land survey • Departments required to nominate OGD responsible • Central register coordinator to harmonize crossdepartment data structures and statistic methodologies • Priorization according to OGD process model Johann Höchtl, Danube University Krems Open Data Dialog 2013 FOKUS Berlin November | 2013| Seite 8
    9. 9. Results: Department voices • Motivation: Employees see the value of their doing by public appreciation (feedback and applications) • Poor men’s information management by using the OGD portal. • Quality assurance by back-reported mistakes • Potential for harmonised data-basis • Increased effort by format conversions, personnel effort highly dependent on existing ICT-infrastructure • No measurable change of public contacts Johann Höchtl, Danube University Krems Open Data Dialog 2013 FOKUS Berlin November | 2013| Seite 9
    10. 10. Results: External stakeholder voices • Citizens: legal embedding of OGD, „How-To’s“ What can be done with data? • Business: OGD cheap and additional resource used upon business requests – BUT missing data harmonization complicates cross-sector data comparison • Academia: accessible high quality-data for analysis and visualisation • Journalists: Potential for revelations – BUT insufficient technical & statistical expertise • App-devs: Interested in technical challenges, very limited business incentives – BUT better back-channels to data-responsibles for inquires Johann Höchtl, Danube University Krems Open Data Dialog 2013 FOKUS Berlin November | 2013| Seite 10
    11. 11. Results: Evaluation study – key findings • Good – Reusing what is available (CMS instead CKAN) – Unambiguous organizational setting with established monitoring processes • Fair – OGD public relations – Subsidy schemes take OGD into account • Potential – Integrate OGD into OG measures, raise political awareness – Central ICT message bus and data storage Johann Höchtl, Danube University Krems Open Data Dialog 2013 FOKUS Berlin November | 2013| Seite 11
    12. 12. Recommendations – local authority / administration • OGD as an infrastructure requires novel re-financing – departments shall not be punished for opening up their data • Data harmonisation • Department-spanning data bus • Stakeholder-oriented PR and development initiatives Johann Höchtl, Danube University Krems Open Data Dialog 2013 FOKUS Berlin November | 2013| Seite 12
    13. 13. Recommendations government / political layer • From OGD portal to OG platform: OGD as an integral part for Open Government • Subsidies according to seed funding methodologies: from idea to implementation Johann Höchtl, Danube University Krems Open Data Dialog 2013 FOKUS Berlin November | 2013| Seite 13
    14. 14. Recommendations federal layer • Make open the default: prepare for FOI • CC-BY (or comparable License) as default of public funding schemes • Elements of „school of data“ in schools and university curricula • Get business (chambers of commerce) on the OD-board Johann Höchtl, Danube University Krems Open Data Dialog 2013 FOKUS Berlin November | 2013| Seite 14
    15. 15. 2013: WORKSHOP & DEPARTMENT RE-ASSESSMENT Johann Höchtl, Danube University Krems Open Data Dialog 2013 FOKUS Berlin November | 2013| Seite 15
