More Detail

Open Data Initiative

Data is the new oil, driving valuations of the companies who become custodians of “go to” master data sets for a particular domain. Globally recognised brand names have built highly lucrative ecosystems around the data they have collected. Facebook for social interactions, LinkedIn for business, Amazon for online purchase, Tesco for household grocery spend are just some of the leaders in the data landscape. These companies have built sustainable businesses using data, delivering valuable highly personalised services and charging for access, while making some data freely available.

 

Open Data initiatives, including Open Data NI, make valuable data freely available and redistributable without a license. In the Public Sector, where the collection of this data is funded by the public purse, there is an imperative to make this information freely available, but Private Sector commercial services, with a sustainable business model, are required to extract maximum value from this freely available Open Data.

 

Having spent a decade helping companies find, prepare, share, use and monetise data, Data Optimisation specialist Anaeko is leading this initiative to help educate Private Sector innovators about commercially viable business models using Open Data.
