Over the last two days (5th and 6th of November 2015) I was very happy to present to a range of Victorian Government agencies and give them some context on what data management can do for their organisations.
From first principles we went through why data was important and what infrastructure was already in place via data.vic.gov.au for them to leverage. We covered examples of how other agencies, such as the Office of Environment and Heritage in NSW, are rebuilding their data management system to provide a more efficient pipeline for publishing internal and public data.
As always, I could not help highlighting the awesome leadership of WA Parks and Wildlife and the work done by Florian Mayer as the best case example for reducing the costs and friction often involved with publishing data as contextually marked up knowledge.
We covered a number of scenarios where the concept of resource containers for data were considered. This created valuable feedback which has further galvanized my thoughts about how to further extend CKAN to meet the needs of both private and open data portals, and other forms of realtime or unstructured data.
