The currency of the 21st century is not the dollar – it’s data. The grass roots open data movement seeks to liberate data from governments, scientific communities, and businesses world-wide in order to facilitate knowledge sharing, foster innovation, and satisfy demands for transparency, while saving these same organizations money in the process.
Following in the footsteps of municipalities like Vancouver, New York, and San Francisco, the City of Ottawa has discovered the value in providing public city data in an unrestricted, easily accessible format. In the short time the Open Data Ottawa movement has existed, the public has already responded with innovative and clever applications.
Join us for a panel discussion with leading Open Data influencers in Ottawa and find out how this movement is changing the way we do business and the benefit it provides to our communities.
