BIS will publish a data capability strategy in October 2013, building on the recommendations in Stephan Shakespeare's review of Public Sector Information and the Prime Minister's Council for Science and Technology's report on algorithms.
"Open data is a critical part of the data-led revolution that is transforming how we live and work. It is a building block for prosperity and more effective public services," said Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude.
"Working with data users, we will identify the data we hold that should be part of that new National Information Infrastructure. This data will be available for release to support economic growth and the developers and entrepreneurs who use open data to build information-led businesses — helping us compete in the global race."
