How to create more value from government open data

131

Published on

Has most of government data released openly so far been flytipping, little used and of little value? David Mitton, of ListPoint, will discuss how more value from government data can be realised. Using the national police database as a case study, he will examine how this data was made more widely usable and how IT implementation costs were reduced by 20%, just by surfacing and mapping the data standards.

  • It is a big ask to get departments to align the standards to which they report but it does exist – take central government reporting requirements of local governmentHowever – the reference data existsData.gov.uk has over 9000 data sets on it, but if you search for ‘reference data standard’ – you get Zero. Search for code list – and you get 1200 returns but very few are the actual reference data that sits alongside the data There are over 9000 datasets tipped into data.gov.

So why is data‘dumped’ and savings missed? • Only 35% of UK civil servants know that using data standards can reduce IT implementation costs • Only 40% know that data standards make data interoperable • 78% do not know what benefits will flow from the open data agenda Source: Listpoint/ Dods civil service research into understanding of open data agenda and benefits – December 2012.
