Why “Open Data” is Sometimes a Bad Idea

When collaborating with other organizations, Australian Capital Territory CIO Christo Norman hears this a lot: “Open data is dead.” For him, semantics make all the difference.

Hear how he’s advancing data collaboration and sharing by recasting the conversation. By using examples of ways how greater data access and transparency can help make the business of government better, reduce the lift for day-to-day jobs, and improve service delivery to constituents, he’s winning over the skeptics and recasting “open data” in a better light.
