Re-using Open Data
.pdf (8.22 МБ)
Well-established businesses use Open Data to enhance their existing services, to optimise their processes or to provide insights derived from data analysis to help solve clients’ business challenges. 23% of the organisations expect their turnover related to Open Data to grow between 11% and 60% in the coming years, while 37% of the respondents forecast their turnover to increase by at least 61% annually. The objective of this report is to understand how organisations, primarily within the private sector, use Open Data and what business models have been developed around its re-use. One of the key findings is the mismatch between available data sets and the data sets that are most re-used. In order to access Open Data, national Open Data portals are used most, followed by directly accessing the public administrations themselves. External as well as internal barriers do remain and hinder re-users to standardise or automate the collection and processing of Open Data. The report concludes on a series of recommendations for both the public and private sector. The public sector needs to better align their data provision strategy with the specific needs of users. The private sector is invited to share further success stories around the reuse of Open Data and demonstrate how it benefits growth and innovation.
