Open data isn’t just for governments. Corporate IT execs can benefit from the spirit of transparency, too.
That was the message behind the keynote talk by Textizen CEO Michelle Lee and Philadelphia’s Chief Data Officer Mark Headd at last month’s New York City IT conference Interop. Sandwiched between talks on ‘BYOD’ (bring your own device) and cloud storage, Headd and Lee used their work in Philly as examples of how open data could help big tech companies innovate. The keynote was another way of bringing Philly’s open data movement to a national stage.
The pair, who share a Code for America connection (Headd formerly worked there and Lee was a fellow), also spoke at Philadelphia Magazine‘s Thinkfest conference about the city’s open data revolution.-30-
