Derilinx is delighted to sponsor Open Data Camp 5, which will be held this weekend (21/22 Oct 2017) at Queen’s University in Belfast. We are looking forward to travelling to Northern Ireland, home of OpenDataNI, the ODI Belfast, and the recently launched Smart Belfast Framework.
The Derilinx Open Data Impact Series promotes awareness, adoption and use of Open Data in different sectors, and supports the publication of high-quality Open Data.
The inaugural session ‘Creating Business Opportunities with Open Data’ focused on how Open Data is a valuable resource for businesses, which can be used to build new applications, enhance existing products or provide additional context for decision-making. The panel discussion took place on 26th Sep 2017 in the beautiful No. 25 Fitzwilliam Place, and was well attended by representatives from industry, government and academia. It was great to see how much interest there is in the application of Open Data across many different sectors. The panels comprised of technology and innovation experts, in fields such as transport, finance, health, retail, and insurance, to name but a few.

We are delighted to announce that Derilinx has been awarded by the Office of Government Procurement (OGP) onto the National Framework for the Provision of Technical Assistance and Support to Ireland’s Open Data Initiative.
Derilinx has been leading Open Data developments, both in Ireland and internationally, since 2010. We have extensive experience in the provision of fully hosted and managed data solutions, notably managing the Irish National Open Data Portal on behalf of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, as well as collaborating with the Central Statistics Office, the Environmental Protection Agency, Dublin City Council, and the international Natural Resource Governance Institute and Landesa Rural Development Institute.
Derilinx are delighted to welcome the publication of the Open Data Strategy 2017 – 2022. The Strategy builds on the substantial achievements of the Open Data Initiative and sets out a roadmap for the Initiative’s continued progress and development.
The Open Data Strategy provides a framework for data to be used to ensure that public services are delivered in a more effective and efficient manner and in a transparent and accountable way.”
Patrick O’Donovan T.D., Minister of State with responsibility for Public Procurement, Open Government and eGovernment.
The Open Data Strategy is developed by the Open Data Governance Board (ODGB) in conjunction with the Open Data Unit in the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and presents Ireland’s Vision and Action Plan of the next five years for the further implementation of the Open Data Initiative.
Derilinx were delighted to participate as an exhibitor at the 2017 Sustainability Summit, in the City West Convention Centre, Dublin.
We connected with manufacturers, service providers, energy suppliers, waste reduction technicians, energy agencies and other knowledge leaders. The stands and floor were busy with potential business partners reaching out to each other, discovering the latest technology and trends.
We showcased both DataSparks and datAdore at the Summit.
What Open Standards should I be using to make sure my data is reusable? How do I find what Open Standards exist? How are Open Standards being developed?
These were among the topics of conversation at the Open Standards Day, held in conjunction with this year’s International Open Data Conference (IODC). Participants from around the world came together to share their experiences, pose challenges and offer solutions. There was a great mix of knowledge from community groups, standardisation bodies, governments and civil society.
Notes from the session are available here and follow-up collaboration from participants is taking place in Google Docs if you want to contribute!
