Improving Public Services
Information sharing across Government Agencies has always been a difficult thing to manage. Catalogues of available information, typically exposed through Open Data initiatives are a good start, but they fail to connect the information flows necessary to ensure data and information is shared efficiently and appropriately.
Using LINQ, a Government Education Sector has been able to collaborate to understand their information needs in order to provide the best possible service to their customers. Understanding who provides and who requires what information, how that information is shared today, how that process could be streamlined and what new services could be offered is driving efficiency and effectiveness across the sector.
Providing a cross-government view by visualising the information catalogue and quantifying the value of information has enabled this sector to begin to transform how it operates in support of the public good.
