This Google Hangout looked at how Open Data can help public services deliver joined up, transparent and effective public services.
Open data is data that anyone can access, use or share. When big companies or governments release non-personal data, it enables citizens, small businesses and public services to make improvements to their communities.
The implementation of the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act will mean that public services will have to work together across sectors to deliver better services for citizens. Open Data can enable better data sharing across organisations and geographical areas.
This webinar looked at:
- What Open Data is
