From thinking to doing
We’re pleased to see work on advancing New Zealand's ability to unlock the latent value of data is gaining momentum.
In August 2015 Government agreed to establish a Data Futures Partnership, a cross-sector group of influential people working together to drive high-trust and high-value data use for all New Zealanders. This follows on from Government’s earlier endorsement of our recommendations and the four principles of value, trust, inclusion and control.
We’ve always stressed that driving social and economic value from data requires a collective effort across the public, private and NGO sectors so we’re delighted that government is taking a collaborative approach through the Partnership. This work builds directly on the thinking we did as a Forum.
We look forward to working with Ministers and the Data Futures Partnership and exploring, at a practical level, how our recommendations will be implemented.
