Please complete a quick survey to help me define the benefits of Open Data.

Steve ReitanoMy name is Steve Reitano, and I am conducting a research project on the benefits of Open Data. The purpose of this research project is to conduct a cost-benefits analysis that will identify the advantages of an Open Data Portal. Additional information for my final research report will also be drawn from interviews and/or focus groups with Open Data experts from both government and the private sector.

In addition to submitting my final report to Royal Roads University in partial fulfillment of my degree, I will also provide it to officials from the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat who are responsible for the Government of Canada’s Open Data portal ( It is my hope that the report may help public organization’s make sound and informative decisions for extending their Open Data initiatives, and hopefully create a more cost effective, transparent, efficient and responsive government.

My research project is a requirement for my Master’s Degree in Executive Management at Royal Roads University.  My credentials with Royal Roads University can be established by telephone with Mr. Don Caplan, MBA Major Projects Manager, (250) 391-2600 ext. 4367.
