Open data:
Stimulating challenges and infinite possibilities

Systems interconnectivity and information sharing are paving the way for a world of possibilities. Open data has the ability to solve very diverse and complex problems. And data is being made available all around the world to generate solutions.

Opening up and sharing data democratizes information so that it can benefit everyone. Consortech contributes significantly to this movement by using its expertise and methods to support organizations.

 

The opening up of data is a mouvement, not a discipline.

Attention to detail is required, as, to be usable and provide value, data must be:

  • Published in a format that is readable and usable
  • Structured with a set of methods and formats that make it possible for data to be shared and understood
  • Distributed under an open license guaranteeing free access to it, without any technical, legal or financial restrictions

Organizations must often manipulate, transform and validate data before making it available. These are all steps for which we can provide invaluable expertise and knowledge.
