CW Europe: June-August 2016
In this issue of CW Europe we lead off with a look at the open data success story in France. Making data available promises organisations – particularly data rich public sector bodies – the opportunity to improve services and cut costs. France is doing just that. Read how following the appointment of its first chief data officer (CDO), France has made good progress in using open data. It now has the number four spot in the Open Data Barometer, compiled by the World Wide Web Foundation. France has also become a prominent member of the Open Government Partnership. Through its data.gouv.fr open data programme, the French government has created both economic and social benefits such as reducing transaction costs.
