Open Data for Federal Agencies

Data is the link between government missions and the technology to accomplish them.

The new Open, Public, Electronic, and Necessary (OPEN) Government Data Act aims to put data at the heart of every decision, program, and policy. It mandates that federal agencies make their non-sensitive government data open and machine-readable by default.

It sounds simple enough, right? But establishing an in-house data program that addresses data governance, data security, and data curation be a major roadblock — especially on deadline.

The law puts federal agencies on a short timeframe to stand up a chief data officer, develop a data catalogue, and curate that information to the public.

Here at Tyler Technologies, we’re helping governments meet that challenge. Our data platform solution, Socrata, is a best-in-class way to manage open data from across an organization.

Watch our on-demand webinar featuring Kevin Merritt, Chief Evangelist and Socrata Founder, to understand how federal agencies can use their information to engage the citizens they serve and achieve lasting social and economic change.
