Ontodia provides #OpenInfrastructure – professional support for hosting, installing, customizing, and maintaining your Data Portal using CKAN – the world’s leading open-source data portal platform that powers the biggest data portals in the world, including Data.gov and Data.gov.uk.
To date, installing and managing a CKAN installation required advanced expertise. And even if you manage to deploy it on your own – spinning up a data portal is just the first step – you still needed a team to put your data to work – to customize it to your requirements; to connect to your internal systems with Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) scripts; to screen/normalize/enrich/geocode your datasets; to create maps and visualizations; to integrate the hundreds of extensions at extensions.ckan.org; to setup harvesters to gather data from related datasources; to patch and maintain your installation with the latest updates.
CivicDashboards – Ontodia’s value-added CKAN-as-a-service, offers the quickest way to get a full-fledged, customizable data portal up and running and allows you to focus on putting your data to work.
CKAN is the world’s leading open-source data portal platform. “CKAN provides a streamlined way to make your data accessible – by providing tools to streamline publishing, sharing, finding and using the data.” And last but not least, CKAN has hundreds of extensions developed by the community – from civic hackers to national governments, to put your data to work. Take the CKAN feature tour.
As CKAN is free, open-source, #OpenInfrastructure software, data publishers have full freedom to choose any supplier for hosting and support. As a veteran CKAN specialist, choosing Ontodia allows you to focus on putting your data to work, and to take advantage of all the value-added features we’ve created to amplify and accelerate your open data initiative.
