Deployment strategies of Open Data Node focused mainly on pilots (2015-May)

  1. 1.         Enabling  Open  Data  Management  in  Public  Institutions       Offer  for  participation  on  the  pilot  deployment   of  COMSODE  Open  Data  Node      
  2. 2.   Open  Data  Benefits     What  is  Open  Data  (OD)   Open  data  is  data  that  can  be  freely  used,  distributed  and  used  by  anyone  -­‐  the  only  condition  is  to   maintain  its  open  license  while  its  usage  and  re-­‐usage.  The  most  important  characteristics  of  OD  are:   •  Availability  and  access  -­‐  data  must  be  available  (as  a  unit)  for  a  price  not  higher  than  the  cost  of   its   distribution,   ideally   via   the   Internet.   Data   must   be   available   in   a   common   and   editable   formats.   •  The  exploitation  and  redistribution  -­‐  data  must  be  provided  under  the  conditions  that  allow  its   usage  and  redistribution,  including  the  option  to  combine  it  with  other  datasets.   •  Universal  participation  -­‐  everyone  must  be  able  to  use  and  redistribute  data  -­‐  discrimination   against  the  topic  domains,  individuals  or  groups  of  individuals  cannot  be  required.  For  example,   “non-­‐commercial”  exploitation  cannot  be  demanded.     1)  Benefits  to  the  public  administration  bodies/government  and  society   ● Reduction  in  data  transaction  costs   ● Increased  service  efficiency  (esp.  through  linked  data)   ● Encouraged  entrepreneurship  (economic  growth)   ● Creation  of  jobs  and  Increased  GDP   2)  Benefit  to  private  sector   ● New  business  opportunities  for  services  /  goods   ● Reduced  costs  for  data  conversion  (no  need  to  convert  data  into  raw  formats  anymore)   ● Better  decision-­‐making  based  on  accurate  information   ● Better-­‐skilled  workforce   3)  Benefit  to  NGOs  &  civil  society   ● Better  informed  monitoring  and  citizens   ● New  venues  for  project  action:  building  tools/applications   ● Increased  sustainability  potential  through  increased  capacity     Other  benefits     ● OD  empowering  transformation  in  specific  sectors  such  as  the  financial  one;   ● OD  generating  new  kinds  of  Public-­‐Private  partnership  models;   ● OD  policies  accelerating  the  process  of  private  businesses  releasing  its  own  data;   ● OD  disrupting  traditional  business  models,  lowering  entry  barriers  and  making  the  services  more   modular.            
  3. 3.   Pilot  deployment  of  tools  for  Open  Data  publishing  –  by  COMSODE     Benefits  and  opportunities  for  your  institution  as  a  pilot  user   • Deployment  of  the  latest  technology  and  methodology  in  your  institution   • Free  access  and  support  of  the  consortium  for  deployment  of  the  technology       • High-­‐quality  partnership  for  future  projects   • Compliance  with  Directive  2013/37/EU  on  the  re-­‐use  of  public  sector  information       Steps  for  piloting  publication  of  Open  Data  in  your  institution  (explained  step  by  step)   1)  Categorize  your  internal  data  (this  helps  you  to  get  better  insight  into  your  data  and  processes)   2)  Decide  which  data  can  be  published  openly     3)  Create  a  data  pipeline  with  COMSODE  user-­‐friendly  tools  which  will  publish  selected  data  and  its   updates  automatically  (or  semi-­‐automatically,  if  you  want)  in  the  future.   4)  Publish  as  much  or  as  little  data  as  you  like.  (Not  everything  in  your  organization's  data  catalogue   has  to  be  publicly  available.  You  can  extend  your  services  over  time  and  keep  the  rest  of  data  only  for   internal  needs).   Some  data  cannot  be  made  publicly  available  due  to  legal  reasons  (personal  data,  certain  confidential   information).  However,  you  can  still  publish  parts  of  it.  Open  Data  Node  can  help  you  to  anonymize   the  data.  (For  example,  instead  of  the  names  of  persons,  publish  only  their  number  or  instead  of   exact  address,  publish  only  the  postcode,  and  so  on).  This  is  flexible  and  can  be  decided  in  accordance   with  the  national  legislation.   Partial  data  (when  the  full  dataset  cannot  be  legally  made  available)  is  better  than  no  data  available.   If   needed,   ODN   software   can   help   you   by   providing   transformation/anonymization   services   when   publishing  your  Data.     Assistance  provided  by  COMSODE   1. Help  with  assessment  of  "as  is"  state,  regarding  IT  infrastructure  and  data  sources   2. Help  with  analysis  and  design  of  publication  process  and  its  implementation:  mainly  how  to   deploy  and  integrate  Open  Data  Node  and  how  exactly  to  publish  data   3. Training  for  IT  staff  regarding  installation,  configuration  and  maintenance  of  Open  Data  Node   4. Training  for  relevant  staff  (IT  or  non-­‐IT,  tasked  with  publishing)  regarding  Methodology,   processes  and  usage  of  Open  Data  Node  (mainly  so  called  "pipe  line"  implementation  and   maintenance)   5. Help  during  initial  setup  of  ODN  SW,  1-­‐3  months  of  support  during  subsequent  production   operations.     Prerequisites  by  pilot  instance  (Institution)   • Official  mandate  from  director  of  the  particular  organization   • Plan  of  what  the  organization  intends  to  achieve  by  publishing  its  Open  Data   o Minimal  plan  should  answer  question  such  as:  What  datasets  are  available?  Do  you  
  4. 4.   have  any  plans  for  subsequent  application  of  data?  etc.   • Cooperation   during   the   assessment,   design   and   implementation   of   publication   processes,   mainly  by:   o Allocating   sufficient   time   capacity   to   the   particular   technical   person(s)   in   charge   of   relevant  information  system(s)     o Allocating  sufficient  time  capacity  to  the  particular  non-­‐technical  person(s)  in  charge  of   relevant  data  or  agenda(s)     o Providing  access  to  the  relevant  technical  documentation  (preferably  digital  copies  (we   can  sign  NDA  if  needed)  or  provide  access  "on  site"  at  least  under  supervision  of  your   staff)   • Assign  a  physical  server  or  Virtual  Machine  for  installation  of  Open  Data  Node,  along  with   necessary  network  connections  towards  sources  of  data  and  Internet  (preferably  with  remote   access  via  SSH  for  COMSODE  staff  -­‐  again  we  can  sign  necessary  paperwork  if  needed).   For  more  information  please  do  not  hesitate  to  contact  us!  
  5. 5.   About  COMSODE  project   Project   COMSODE   (Components   Supporting   the   Open   Data   Exploitation   –   COMSODE)   is   a   research   and   innovation   project   aimed   at   developing   flexible   platform   (software   ODN)   for   effective  publishing,  providing  and  re-­‐use  of  publicly  available  data  in  the  EU.  Project  is  focused   also  on  the  confidentiality  issues  and  defining  of  the  methodology  during  publication  process.     The  concept  is  an  answer  to  barriers  still  present  in  the  Open  Data  area:   • Data  published  by  various  open  data  catalogues  are  poorly  integrated;   • Quality  assessment  and  cleansing  are  seldom  addressed;   • Available  solutions  mostly  do  not  cover  whole  publishing  process  and  are  not   accompanied  by  methodology;   • Data  consumers  have  to  integrate  the  data  before  they  can  use  them  which  increases   significantly  the  costs  of  open  data  consumption  and  hinder  open  data  usage  and  uptake.     COMSODE  has  the  following  main  objectives  to  eliminate  these  barriers:   (1)    To  create  a  software  platform  ODN  (Open  Data  Node  for  easy  open  data  publication  and  its   re-­‐use.  ODN  is  Open  Source  software  and  its  source  code  is  available  on  the  GitHub  website.   Documentation  and  methodologies  are  provided  under  the  Creative  Commons  (CC-­‐BY)  license.   The  ODN  solution  is  based  on  results  from  the  previous  research  activities  in  the  field  of  Link   data,  while  the  mission  of  the  project  is  to  bring  the  results  from  the  experimental  environment   into   the   real   world   conditions.   ODN   installations   have   been   running   since   mid-­‐2014   and   the   public  pilots  started  in  early  2015  in  multiple  European  countries  (although  this  software  is  not   EU-­‐specific   and   can   be   easily   used   anywhere  in  the  world).   As   the   components   of   ODN   are   already   being   used   by   several   organizations   which   have   been   building  their  solutions  on  top  of  ODN   software,  active  maintenance  of  Open   Data   Node   is   expected   well   beyond   the   life   of   the   COMSODE   project.   Citizens,   developers,   non-­‐profits   as   well  as  other  stakeholders  can  use  and   re-­‐use  the  Open  Data  and  compatible   tools  –  e.g.  search  service  provided  by   Spinque.                                                                                                                                 (2)    To  create  a  methodology  framework  for  easy  use  of  ODN  software  in  operating  conditions   thanks   to   the   testing   of   usability   and   sustainability   in   a   public   body   environment.   The   methodology  is  designed  to  meet  specific  needs  of  the  public  sector.  It  will  be  primarily  based  on   the  experience  and  realities  from  the  Czech  Republic,  Slovakia  and  Italy.  The  methodology  could   be  subsequently  used  as  the  basis  for  departmental,  regional  and  national  methodology  when   publishing  Open  Data.  
  6. 6.   The  methodology  will  be  verified  during  the  Comsode  project  by  the  international  "User  Groups"   and   pilot   deployments.   Provided   feedback   from   end-­‐users   will   be   processed   into   the   final   methodology  and  recommendations  for  general  usage  of  the  ODN  software.   (3)   To   provide   demonstrative   examples   by   publishing   more   than   150   datasets   using   ODN   software.  Typical  users  are  bodies  of  public  administration  at  all  levels  (where  the  ODN  software   is   installed).   Software   ODN   can   harvest   data   from   different   sources   (from   most   standard   databases  and  spreadsheets,  among  others)  and  is  able  to  create  own  data  connectors.  It  can   also  be  adapted  to  work  with  a  very  unusual  systems  and  databases.     Organizations  can  benefit  from  the  establishment  of  the  internal  data  catalogue,  automation  of   data  publishing  process  and  the  provision  of  high  quality  data  for  citizens.  Consecutively,  citizens,   developers,   non-­‐profit   organizations,   and   other   interested   parties   can   use   more   effective   ecosystem  of  Open  Data.   The  project,  inter  alia,  aims  to  create  a  good  basis  for  the  fulfilment  of  the  European  Directive   2013/37/EU  of  26  June  2013  on  the  re-­‐use  of  public  sector  information  (PSI  Directive),  which   must  be  transposed  by  EU  member  states  before  26  June  2015.   It  is  a  project  ambition  to  lay  the  foundations  for  a  data  integration  platform  based  on  Open  Data   allowing  the  re-­‐use  of  data  not  only  between  public  bodies  and  end-­‐users  but  also  among  public   bodies  themselves:  Public  bodies  can  exchange  information  by  using  the  same  infrastructure  and   tools   as   end-­‐users   which   will   decrease   costs   of   exchanging   the   data   and   in   most   cases   also   enhance  the  quality  and  speed-­‐up  of  the  exchange.     What  is  the  Aim  of  the  piloting?     • Use  the  COMSODE  results  in  real  environment   • Validate  the  methodology  aspects  and  provide  space  for  enhancements   • Gather  feedback  on  technology  components  usability   • Gather  feedback  on  the  performance  in  real  environment     COMSODE  consortium  members   • University  Milano  Bicocca  –  Dept.  of  Informatics,  Systems  and  Communication    -­‐   Methodology   • Charles  University  Prague  –  Dept.  of  Software  Engineering  -­‐  Data  analysis   • EEA  Communication  Solutions,  Ltd.  Prague/Bratislava  –  design  and  implementation  of  ODN   software   • ADDSEN,  Ltd.  Bratislava  –  administration  and  management  of  the  project   • Spinque,  Ltd.  Utrecht  -­‐  Technology  Search-­‐by-­‐strategy   • Ministry  of  Interior  of  the  Slovak  Republic  –  verification  of  outputs     Selected  associated  partners   • City  of  Rotterdam  –  pilot  deployment,  evaluation  of  technology  and  methodology     • Ministry  of  Finance  -­‐  Slovak  Republic  –  evaluation  of  outputs,  cooperation  in  standardization     • Ministry  of  Finance  -­‐  Czech  Republic  –  evaluation  of  outputs,  User  group  member
