The benefits of Open Data are driving public and private organisations to exchange information in an open manner. This requirement can be an internal one to reduce duplication and improve efficiency or an external one to exchange information with another organisation or the citizen. Open Data is all about making data available in an easy to use and intuitive form.
No matter what the requirement, XML is the data exchange language of choice. Adhering to widely adopted W3C standards and supported by all the major IT vendors, XML provides a means of exchanging information in a vendor and platform neutral manner.
