UK Environment Agency
The UK Environment Agency is at the forefront of the UK government’s Open Data agenda. There are many challenges in releasing a large number of data sets into the public domain, but ensuring that data is collected, processed and presented consistently has been recognised as critical. To meet this and other needs, the Environment Agency has put a strong focus on the development and implementation of data standards, and their enforcement through data governance and IT lifecycle management.
This case study will highlight how to implement effective data standards in a large and complex organisation. A key message of the session is that a business led, collaborative approach is essential.
