Your needs

The data your activities produce provides critical intelligence for decision-making, helps reassure citizens and can drive your marketing forward. To unlock its value, you need to make your data available to all employees, local partners and citizens in reliable, readable and reusable formats.

Your challenges

Releasing your data from expert IT systems and departmental silos is a struggle. Concerns around sharing confidential data, resistance to digitization and the enormous, complex range of data sources and formats your information is available in, are all obstacles to sharing reusable data.

Our solution

Opendatasoft helps you bring your data together and share it through secure, compliant data experiences that increase public service efficiency, restore trust between elected officials and voters, highlight the strengths of your area and drive collaborative innovation at a community level.

We wanted to be able to provide information on air quality in an open format that anyone could query, and that is as transparent as possible. A platform that not only allows you to dig into a high level of detail, but allows you to visualize information in a way that is accessible to the vast majority of people. And this model is replicable across any urban monitoring indicator!

Generate a positive impact on your administration and the everyday lives of citizens

Develop your administrative efficiency and create high-quality services

Collect the data produced by your people and equipment in a single place. Deliver internal access to decision-making information through management dashboards, performance monitoring and user satisfaction surveys. Strengthen your skills, identify how to create a simpler and more sustainable business model and adapt your approach if crises occur.

Reduce your administration’s carbon footprint

Collect measurements from your traffic sensors, connected buildings and smart meters. Supplement them with contextual data and create dashboards on air quality, waste management and mobility. Analyze ecological impacts and use this information to achieve environmental excellence and to build a green future.

Demonstrate accounting and democratic transparency

Create an open data portal to display your accounts, budget, subsidies, election results and diversity in local representative bodies. Demonstrate your public finance management and deliver on your commitments to improving the quality of public debate.

Demonstrate the actual results of your policies

Quickly develop clear and factual indicator dashboards to report on progress towards your manifesto commitments and the positive local impact of your policies. By creating and sharing a reliable, easy-to-read system that makes it simple to evaluate your performance, you'll increase satisfaction with public services and rebuild citizens’ confidence in local government.

Improve and enhance local services

Create data stories, interactive maps and geolocation-based applications to showcase cultural facilities, free WiFi zones and 5G coverage. You can even highlight services, shops and small businesses located under 15 minutes from where people live. Attract new residents and businesses while increasing your tourism potential.

Strengthen collaboration and dialogue between communities

Start a common data sharing process with other communities and integrate your partners, from service providers to economic stakeholders and voluntary institutions. Pool your resources to create data experiences that reach more people and create new collaborations to build tomorrow’s successful public services.

Long-term, Salinas wants to be a city that’s innovative. By providing the data to entrepreneurs and developers that create apps or to researchers or students, there’s a good chance those external customers, clients or coders can come up with solutions staffers wouldn’t come up with on their own. We have to have the perspective that we’re a startup – even if we are government.
