Bahrain open government data portal
The open data platform of Bahrain is an important initiative for the country as it aims to implement a public data hub and a strategy for open data to enable transparency, promote e-participation and inspire innovation. The primary role of the platform is to publish datasets from ministries and government agencies in an open format, and making this data available to the public. The platform enables the public to have a central point of access to find, download and use datasets generated by the ministries and governmental entities in the country. The public benefits from the data provided in different ways, as gaining access to government data helps the public in acquiring a better understanding of how the government works. It also allows the general public and businesses to use the data for research, creating reports, provide feedback, develop web and smart phone applications and solutions based on public data. With the platform, the government pursues to expand the portfolio of the e-Government services by extending the growing efforts to the private sector, enhancing transparency, and allowing people for creativity.
