OGDaaS : Open Government Data as a Service Platform

The Open Government Data as a Service Platform

What is OGDaaS?

The Open Government Data as a Service Platform (OGDaaS) is a cloud-based platform that creates data APIs and services from existing datasets in open government data portals. The platform creates RESTFul Web API for every dataset validated as well-formed tabular data. The API creation process is automatic and requires no intervention from data publisher. The data APIs allows application developers to query and aggregate data in the datasets in a dynamic fashion. The platform also promotes the datasets to 4-star open data, i.e., RDF format. This creates opportunities for creating linked open government data in future phase. The platform also provides self-service data querying and reporting applications to improve accessibility and engagement of open government data for the citizens.
