Description

THEME: Development of an Open Data Portal; COMMITMENT 8: Development of an Open Data Portal; Status quo or problem addressed by the commitment: To date, Serbia has completed a feasibility study for open data, held a hackathon based on the first open data sets and commissioned a website containing open data and previously unavailable documents. Further coordinated efforts to open data will require a recognisable, unified state-of-the-art software solution to be published for an Open Data Portal. Main objective: The aim is to publish an Open Data Portal where all institutions would open their data sets and which would provide a recognisable setting for open data users. Brief description of commitment (140-character limit): To prepare for the development of the Portal, we will conduct a needs analysis, examine positive experiences with existing Portals and develop technical specifications for the software. Based on the results of this exercise, a software solution will be developed in line with good global practice in terms of technology, which will be upgradeable and will ensure active participation of the open data user community. The next step would be to publish all existing data sets that have been opened to date on the Portal and to train users to ensure sound and comprehensive disclosure of available data. The Portal would also include open data metaregistries. After that, the Portal would be promoted and other categories of open data users would be trained to use it. The portal would provide links to other open data portals published by individual authorities. OGP challenge addressed by the commitment: Strengthening public integrity; Relevance: An Open Data Portal would enable public administration to publish data about its work and would thus increase transparency and citizen awareness, while also providing opportunities for developing applications which could potentially, in addition to providing improved services to citizens, also contribute to economic development and development of small and medium-sized enterprises. Accessible and comprehensible open data enable civic participation in the work of public administration and provide opportunities for technological innovation and development of highly useful applications and services. Open data portals bring budget savings because the administration has no need to spend budget resources to develop services and applications for open data sets, which increases the efficiency of its work. Ambition: The Open Data Portal should be a software solution developed with the generally accepted technological standards for this type of portals. It would publish open data sets of public administration bodies, links to open data subportals, visualisations and a search functionality. This would enable the use of data for analyses and drawing of conclusions based on big data. Users of the Portal will include citizens, public administration employees, the civil society, the academic community, the IT community, businesses and the media.
