Solihull approach to Open Data

“The Council has met its obligations to publish open data for procurement and salaries. More than that it has ambitions to publish all non-sensitive data as open data. Open Data and big data, some argue, are the fuel of the emerging knowledge economy and enable the co-production we are seeking in the Social Council. This ambition, however is behind other priorities the council has and will not receive investment unless it does not adversely impact on other key outcomes.”
