In this IT government keynote, Liam Maxwell, the Deputy Government Chief Information Officer for the British government, discusses the new role of open data in its activities. It is his responsibility to ensure that the group delivers reform, growth and efficiency. He explains how he hopes the new role of IT can also open up markets and potential outside investment.

In the past, there was no open source data for the public to access. Now, however, this is becoming the norm. The British government hopes to commission outside innovation to encourage investors and to create a more transparent experience. In today’s world, data has to be open if trust is expected.

Maxwell’s government IT keynote demonstrates the extent to which governmental institutions are behind when it comes to technology and social media.
