Governments around the world are starting to change their information from disconnected documents into open data – standardized, searchable, and available to all. Open data holds the potential to transform government and society: empowering citizens to communicate with their elected representatives more effectively, enabling data-driven management by supporting analytics and visualizations, and reducing compliance and reporting costs through automation. As governments choose to express their information as open data, they also open opportunities for the tech industry to create the platforms, analytics, and reporting mechanisms that deliver these benefits.

California will take a huge step toward this transformation with the enactment of Senate Bill 573, establishing a framework for all state agencies to move their information resources from disconnected documents into open data. SB 573 establishes the office of Chief Data Officer, directs agencies to take stock of the information they collect and generate, and sets up an open data portal to enable easy publication and accessibility.

The tech industry is ready to use open data to deliver better accountability, better management, and automated compliance. On August 26, the Data Transparency Coalition hosted a Data Demo Day, to explore how open data is already changing California – and how SB 573 accelerates that change. Coalition members demonstrated how their open data-enabled products and solutions benefit citizens, government leaders, and regulated entities.
