Joel Gurin: OMB-Backed Roundtable Highlights Open Data Significance to Government

Joel Gurin, president of the Center for Open Data Enterprise, has said a roundtable event that the think tank organized with the Office of Management and Budget in July discussed the role of open data in transforming government, building collaboration and supporting private businesses.

The roundtable gathered approximately 80 government and business leaders with the goal of connecting them to utilize open data as a “strategic resource for better government and growing the American economy,” Gurin wrote in a guest piece published Monday on Fedscoop.

He added the event sought to build on the notion that open data contributes to the operational efficiency and effectiveness of the government, the development of economy and the growth of the job market.

The event was led by Kristen Honey, senior policy analyst at OMB, and received support from the Center for Open Data Enterprise’s partners Booz Allen Hamilton and Accenture Federal Services.
