About Us

Your Vision Unleashed

"Data as Infrastructure" is how we define our mission. Our team of associates has the role primarily responsible for turning your vision into a successful, defensible open data program. In essence, managing data as infrastructure means improving links between silos of databases and data stores; making information/data easier to find online, making it easier for analysts and policy makers to quickly access and transform data into the new formats and knowledge. It means lowering the cost of consuming and using data because we keep having more data to manage.
