The open data community has made significant progress in developing platforms to make open data more available and accessible. Many solutions are now available either as open source, subscription (e.g., Software As a Service) or traditionally licensed products. As a result, there are many opportunities and factors for data providers, particularly government ministries, to consider in their decision making and selection criteria. This session will provide an overview of the current state of open data publishing platforms. Representatives of several leading data platforms will give “lightning talks” on the demands and trends they’re seeing and what they think might be in store for the future. There will also be a “town hall” style discussion for audience members to share the challenges they are experiencing and get the views of the panel.
