Replay Meetup Infrabel: Creating an internal data portal to improve efficiency.

Thursday 26 October 2023

Every organization is now producing growing volumes of data on a daily basis. Data managers within organizations need to ensure that this is being shared effectively in ways that meet the changing data needs of employees, partners, customers and the public alike. 

This is why organizations need to create data portal that provide a secure, one-stop shop to allow employees to quickly search and reuse all your organization’s data assets.

Infrabel builds, maintains and modernizes the Belgian railway network, as well as coordinating all train traffic throughout the country.

Infrabel began work in 2019 with Opendatasoft for its external open data Project. The success of the public portal and the growth of a data culture has led Infrabel to create a new, internal data portal : Key Figures. It aims to facilitate access to key internal data for its 10,000 employees, Everyone, from the CEO to workers in the field, are be able to access the portal to find the information they need to improve decision-making and efficiency
