According to Open Data Maturity Report, Italy ranks fourth in the European ranking of the ability to enhance its open data and for the second consecutive year confirms itself among trendsetter countries.
Italy confirms its position in the State of Play 2018 regarding the level of open data maturity and gains a higher position compared to the previous year.
This emerges from the Open Data Maturity Report 2018, the European document, that measures the progress of national policies on open data.
According to the report, Italy is ranked fourth with an overall score of 80% for the second consecutive year among trendsetter countries. The trendsetter countries are those who have been able to implement an advanced open data policy that is well coordinated among all the actors within the country and who have a national open data portal with advanced features.
This rank has been achieved thanks to a series of actions promoted by the AgID. Such actions have been: the definition of specific policies, related to the Three-year Plan and supported by the National Guidelines for the Valorisation of Public Information; updates to the dynamic dataset basket, to which central, regional and local administrations have contributed; the consolidation of the national survey on the implementation of the PSI-Directive on the re-use of public sector information-, and other initiatives aimed at promoting culture on open data, all through the national portal Dati.gov.it.
The report highlights the state of art of 28 European countries on the subject, taking into account four dimensions: policies, national reference portals, quality of data exposed and, particularly relevant, the size of impacts. The aim is to measure an effective reuse of data and its impact on the political, social, environmental and economic levels.
