The government’s open data policies and best-practice guidance for agencies managing how data is stored, published and used.
Data management is about how your data moves through a data lifecycle: plan, collect, short-term storage, analysis, publish and preserve. At each stage you need to consider New Zealand data policies and adopt best practice when looking at how your data is stored, published and used.
Open data is data that anyone can access, share and use. Data must be open, trusted, authoritative, well managed and readily available. Opening up data for reuse has widespread benefits to government, the private sector and the public.
