"'Revenue of companies utilising data in their innovation activities grew in the information and communications sector,' says a report on the effectiveness of open data, published on 16 March. The usability of open data could be improved by standardising public sector information management practices.
The report reviews the openness of base registers and examines the availability of indicators necessary for assessing the economic effectiveness of open data, and the possibility of collecting systematically the data needed for assessing effectiveness. In addition, the report sheds light on the link between the use of open data and companies’ innovations and financial success. The report also makes concrete proposals aimed at increasing the effectiveness of base data resources."
