The Data Coalition is the world’s only trade association dedicated to the transformation of government information into standardized, open data. This improves democratic accountability, enables better public-sector management, and allows compliance processes to be automated.
For the private sector, the transformation is creating a new industry. Once government information is expressed as standardized, open data instead of disconnected documents, technology companies can build solutions that republish it to improve democratic accountability, analyze it to enable better management, and automate compliance processes.
The Coalition’s members’ capabilities inform its whole mission. Their products and services can deliver accountability for citizens and investors, enable data-driven management decisions, and replace manual compliance processes with automatic ones – if the right data reforms are enacted and implemented. The Coalition has six membership classes: Executive, Partner, Regular, Industry, Startup, and Trade Association.
