Example Step 6: Organize Governance

In this step, data governance has to be organized for the dataset.

As said before, Liander would like to publish this data in order to:

  • Be transparent as a public utility company
  • Stimulate open innovation
  • Gain insight into data needs
  • Improve data quality by receiving feedback

This is the vision from which the governance structure and data publishing strategy are derived. At the moment, the governance structure consists of one person who is responsible for the open data initiative at Liander. The data is published with a liberal license, i.e. Creative Commons with Attribution. The dataset is actively promoted through a dedicated website and at events and challenges, in order to build a user community. Users can contact Liander with questions about the dataset through a dedicated e-mail address. However, there is no official support available for users.
