open data

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’s vision is to support the provision of effective public-services through the coordinated use of data. We enable data-driven decision-making and business intelligence through Open Data publication, integration and sharing. By providing end-to-end support, Derilinx guides organisations through the Open Data Management process.

The OGP National Framework supports the provision of technical assistance and support to Ireland’s Open Data initiative, including:
• Open Data Management
• Auditing data
• Data publishing
• Linking data
• Use Case analysis
• Data analytics
• Development of visualisation tools and visualisation applications

The Open Data Initiative is underpinned by the Open Data Technical Framework and the Open Data Strategy 2017–2022. The Open Data Technical Framework provides a clear set of requirements for public bodies to ensure that published datasets meet clearly defined standards and are published in a consistent, persistent and truly open way, making them more discoverable, accessible, interoperable and reusable, while the Open Data Strategy sets out a roadmap for the Initiative’s continued progress and development.

The National Framework for the Provision of Technical Assistance and Support to Ireland’s Open Data Initiative is available to the following Public-Sector Entities:
• Central Government Departments,
• Government Agencies and Offices,
• Local Authorities,
