The NSW dMarketplace is the next step in our data journey and continues our commitment to ensuring the people of NSW get greater access to more of the data that is of interest to them, through improving the availability and usability of data.
dMarketplace is an ambitious, whole of government program that has been designed to establish NSW Government as an exemplar of 21st century data driven government.
The dMarketplace program is the platforms, practice, policy and guidance mechanisms to support improved discovery, access and use of open, shared and spatial data in NSW. The program was initiated by the NSW Department of Finance, Services and Innovation (DFSI) and its purpose is to simplify and improve data use, management and maturity across NSW.
This will be enabled by creating an environment for NSW Government users and the public that will provide access to data and a wealth of guidance, expertise and services. Each of the elements of this environment will be designed in conjunction with data owners and users.
The program has three key components.
Data policy – What policy environment is needed to support a fully data-enabled government?
Data practice – What support, guidance and collaboration can help all areas of NSW government to improve their data practices and leverage the power of data in their business?
Data platforms – How does technology help support this vision?
DFSI is announcing a dedicated testing phase with users of its ambitious whole of government data program. This will help NSW government agencies to use data to enable and drive innovation, collaboration and to work more openly and effectively across agencies, jurisdictions and sectors.
