By: Julia NeuschmidSenior Research Analyst, IDC Government Insights


Customers are increasingly demanding personalized, user-friendly, and faster services. As a part of the open data movement of the past decade, huge volumes of data have been released under unrestricted licenses that enable this data to be used, reused, and redistributed for profit and for nonprofit purposes. Open data can enable the development of innovative products and services. This IDC Government Insights Perspective highlights 10 applications and services that have been developed on top of open data.
