  9. 9. Theme: Data management processes Activity: Data release process 1 2 3 4 5 Initial Repeatable Defined Managed Optimising Little or no published open data. Datasets that are published are done so using ad hoc, possibly manual processes. Released datasets are rarely, if ever, updated. Specific projects or products may have defined a repeatable process for releasing an individual dataset or series, but there are no common standards. Some datasets are being released and updated to a regular schedule. There is a repeatable organisation-wide standard release process for publishing datasets. The release process may be tailored for individual projects. The release process has been adopted for some published datasets. All datasets are released according to the standard organisational process. Updates to datasets are released to a scheduled, published timetable. Archived versions of key datasets are provided to support historical analysis. Internal reports are available to highlight stale datasets. The organisation collects and monitors metrics on its release process, e.g. time taken to release and refresh datasets. The organisation acts to optimise the release process to reduce time between changes and releases. Become more efficient at delivering data to customers
