Public sector organisations are increasingly encouraged to share data with other state institution or private businesses and to make datasets available to the public. The drive to data sharing is supposed to improve service delivery and help boost an innovative digital economy. But what does this mean in practice for public servants and citizens? Three researchers will discuss their research into this topic:
- What does "open" actually mean across different government agencies?
- How is open data being shared across platforms like Wikidata?
- How does data sharing work between different instititions in fields like health?

About Information Awareness Month
Information Awareness Month (IAM) is a collaborative event between various bodies within information, knowledge, records, archives and data management communities. It aims to explore, promote and celebrate better ways of handling information. The month of May was selected as the month when we promote modern and improved practices of managing information in Australia and by Australians. It is a celebration of all things information. The IAM2021 theme is ‘Building Trust – Adaptability & Capabilities’.
29 June – 2 July

Steve Hoberman runs the international program for DMZ. He holds the world record for training the most people in Data Modeling, has written nine books on data modelling and is the publisher for just about every data management author.
Data modelling is the most fundamental skill in data management. You will not get the best of data outcomes if both business and IT can’t comfortably communicate in detail about the data. Unfortunately, in Australia, people think it is just for database people developing schemas. But in Europe and the US you will find Executives happily engaging with data models as a basis for digital transformation.
Here is the DMZ Program https://tinyurl.com/DMZMelbourne2021-1. We will be offering it virtually and hopefully hybrid or satellite events as well. The program includes five pre-conference workshops.
