What is open data?

Open data is data that is created, stored and shared by any organisation or institution and made freely available for anyone to use, reuse and redistribute as they wish. More about open data

Salsa’s open data services

  1. Helping you define a clear plan on how your department can release the public data it creates and make it available for free to anyone who wishes to use it. The plan extends further to help identify how, where and when to share and manage your open datasets. The strategy also covers the roles and responsibilities of the data owner vs the steward vs the custodian.

  2. Designing your open data (information) architecture and schemas — metadata definitions that describe and expose your open datasets.

  3. Designing the user interface and user experience to ensure ease-of-use and data discoverability.

  4. Consolidating, migrating and/or converting existing datasets from legacy sources/systems into your new/target open data platform.

    1. Open data portal configuration and implementation

    2. Open data portal module extension development, customisation and/or enhancements

    3. Open data portal frontend theming.

    1. For data contributors on how to describe and submit open datasets

    2. For data administrators/moderators on how to moderate (accept or reject) submissions and revisions

    3. Technical training on how to design, build, configure or theme your open data portal.

  5. Open data portal hosting platform and management including 24/7 monitoring, one-hour critical incident response SLA, patching and maintenance, etc.

  6. Ad-hoc open data portal application support and enhancements, service help-desk, etc.

We’ve come a long way in our use of open data, but we need to continue to innovate. Salsa is keen to be part of the evolution, to help deliver the transformation that open data enables.
