Data Demo Day 2018


Our government collects and publishes crucial data—spending, regulatory, and legal information—locked in static documents rather than open, standardized, machine-readable data. But change is coming. Federal agencies have begun to use data to efficiently solve the challenges facing our government, ranging from duplication, fraud, and waste to policy questions. The Data Coalition empowers data companies to make our government more efficient and transparent.

Our first-ever Data Demo Day showcased cutting-edge data solutions for a public-sector audience. As the public sector moves from documents to data standards, the private sector is ready to simplify the way government information is reported, analyzed, and disseminated. Data solutions empower managers, citizens, entrepreneurs, Congress, civil society, and watchdogs.
