Öppna data : En teknisk undersökning av Sveriges offentliga sektor
Sammanfattning: Today's information society is facing constant new challenges, one of which is how the public sector gives out information to their citizens. Sweden has long been a pioneer when it comes to openness and transparency. According to a study by the European Commission, Sweden is a well-functioning digital society, while the digital transparency and the openness to the public sector is still lower than other countries. The problem is that Sweden's public sector has not kept up with developments regarding the work with open data over the years and it has taken place in a decentralized manner. Timothy Berners-Lee, a British computer engineer and founder of the World Wide Web, advocates open linked data and addresses data owners to release their data as soon as possible, regardless of format. This study is based on Timothy's theory of open data and contains a literature study, a survey and a proof-of-concept model. The purpose of this study is to make a technical analysis of open data in Sweden’s public organizations and to be able to present a situational picture, as there are few technical studies about it. According to this study Timothy's theory is fully applicable in Sweden and there are several factors that the public sector should take notice of in the event of publication of data on the Internet. The technical potential for Sweden to comply with the EU-directive already exists and the biggest pitfalls have been the lack of knowledge from certain authorities and certain legal obstacles. The Swedish government needs to do a larger national effort to centralize the work with open data in order to turn Sweden into a leading country in terms of digital transparency and openness once again.
