Public Sector Open Data

Background

Open data refers to government data that can be freely used, shared and reused by the people, public sector or private agencies for any purpose. It acts as a driving force in the people-initiated government initiative. Open data execution can improve the quality and transparency of government service delivery through accurate, fast and relevant data sharing. In addition, it will also increase the country’s productivity and economy through new industry / innovation with the involvement of the people and business communities.

The Public Sector Open Data Portal (DTSA) at data.gov.my, was developed in 2014 and achieved 41st spot out of 86 countries in the Open Data international ranking. The DTSA portal facilitates the centralized access of government open data from official sources.
