Impact of open government data to be discussed at forum

Filed on April 13, 2014

27 keynote speakers from 15 countries, mainly Europe, USA, and the region, will attend the first Open Government Data Forum on April 28 and 29.

The Emirates Identity Authority, the United Nations Public Administration Network and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs will jointly conduct the first Open Government Data Forum on April 28 and 29 at Ritz Carlton Hotel in Abu Dhabi.

Abdulaziz Al Maamari, Director of Government communications and Community, Emirates ID, said 27 keynote speakers from 15 countries, mainly Europe, USA, and the region, will attend the meeting.

The event will also highlight the impact of the latest developments in open data on the performance of government business and how governments can leverage this trend to identify strategies to maximise the value they deliver to customers, he added.

“The forum’s key topic revolves around the open data policy and how to allow it to customers in seamless and easy-to-use methods through making all elements and information available within a framework of content that is open for the public to use and reuse, leveraging thereby their level of knowledge and expertise.”

“The meeting will demonstrate experiences of a number of leading countries in the area of open government data and highlight efforts exerted by Emirates ID in particular and government entities in the country in general. It will also introduce experiments of some government agencies in the GCC.”

The participants will also talk about the best ways to provide e-services to customers and how they interact with governments, the cloud computing technology, and OGD information security strategies, he added.

“The event is to see high profile UN and government officials and experts in smart government data systems, along with a number of executive directors from the biggest global and regional technology companies specialised in managing, analysing and storing data, such as Microsoft, SAS, CEPAS, and Infosys.”
