The Open Data Institute (ODI) is our strategic partner in Malaysia’s quest to pursue open data adoption among government ministries and agencies. Together, we will strive to develop a national strategy for open data adoption, build competency in open data via training and workshops, spur public and private sector innovation through high impact projects and derive success stories to encourage further support from all sectors of society.
In fact, the ODI is the key strategic advisor to the UK government, which is ranked number 1 in the Open Data Barometer, an assessment method for open data that analyses the readiness, implementation and impact of open data initiatives around the world.
We would like to share with you a book that highlights the ODI’s achievements in its first year.
In the first year the ODI has exceeded our expectations. We are very proud of the ODI team and their achievements. Achievements that include a growing membership, value creation, companies helped, policy contributions made, training undertaken, research carried out, and the overwhelming national and international interest generated. These are all strong and vibrant signals that the ODI is the right thing at the right time promoting an idea whose time has come.
