We are delighted to speak again at CKAN Monthly Live. Upcoming session on May 25th 2022, 1pm UTC.

Derilinx will present the OGCIO project – Building Ireland’s National Data Sharing Platform / Public Service Catalogue (

Underpinning this Vision Statement or Ireland’s National Public Service Data Strategy is the creation of an Interoperability Platform that effectively enables Public Service Bodies (PSBs), in a secured controlled and flexible manner, to discover/share/link/re-use data for better decision-making, improved services and engagement across the stakeholder landscape.

Derilinx built a public/private CKAN based Data Catalogue ( that enables the publication, access and sharing of metadata information about Public Service Bodies dataset either in a full open fashion or in a PSB restricted fashion (to facilitate safe and controlled sharing across PSBs). This is a great illustration of CKAN as a Data Sharing tool.

You will:

  • Learn how we built a CKAN based Data Catalogue with security rules to allow not only access to datasets in a full open fashion but also in a restricted way to allow PSBs sharing data privately
  • Understand Ireland’s wider Digital Transformation Strategy
  • Understand next steps linked to Ireland Data Sharing Programme
