Government management and use of data

Data held by government is a public asset. As a public service, what are the expectations on us in managing that asset?

  • What is the difference between sharing data and opening data?
  • How is data used and reused across government?
  • What kind of data is open and how is it being reused in innovative ways?

Paul will discuss these issues and share his thoughts from his unique perspective as the Leader of the New Zealand Open Government Data Programme.
