"A lot of organisations focus on Open Data. Citadel is built by Local Authorities for Local Authorities. From getting internal stakeholders onboard and opening and cleaning data sets, through to creating a vibrant data culture in your community, the Citadel team can help you succeed with your Open Data initiative!’’. Martin Ferguson - Head of Policy, Socitm

Open Data Holds Huge Promise

Efficiency Savings - Smart Working - Improved Services - Citizen Engagement - Increased Transparency & Trust

That said, we know from work with over 20 UK Local Authorities and 125 cities world wide that opening data is often easier said than done. That is why our team has created a set of practical solutions to help organisations Open Data quickly, easily and cost-effectively:

Get Planning: Engage critical stakeholders, explore key data concepts and requirements (from privacy through to access and management) and up-skill core personnel.

Get Started:
Identify datasets that align with strategic objectives, reduce Freedom of information requests and address community interests. Train key stakeholders. Clean and release target data sets in an open and reusable form.

Get Innovating: Avoid costly and closed private sector portals by implementing an open source CKAN Citadel solution to derive business insights and unlock value.

Our proven and tested methodologies are designed to help you achieve more with less. I hope you take this opportunity to engage with us.

With kind regards

Julia Glidden
Founder 21c and Citadel
