If you ever wondered:
- What is open data and how it is shifting the culture and competition in a data-driven world?
- What are agencies doing with open data?
- What opportunities and challenges exist in opening up a firm’s data?
- What role does regulation and governments play?
- How can firms harness the value of open and collaborative innovations in an increasingly digital world?
This book is for you.
Open data is already here. It is revolutionising how we collect, store, distribute, use and reuse data, both in its raw state and in the structured information state. Open data fosters collaborative growth and innovation by leveraging otherwise closed and contained knowledge stores. But not everyone is convinced of its promises. Accessibility, transferability, transparency and trust concerns of open data are up for debate.
Digital technologies and open data bring many possibilities, from informing how we buy groceries to managing our retirement savings to turning moonshot ideas into reality. The question is how could organisations create and capture value from open data in an increasingly digital, open and collaborative environment?
Written by contributors ranging from PhD scholars to international leading experts and researchers, from 13 leading institutions in Australia, Finland, Canada, Sweden and Switzerland, Digital Innovation: Harnessing the Value of Open Data explores the interrelations between digital innovation and open data from an open innovation perspective, unveiling socio-economic, governance and policy-making challenges.
In examining the state-of-the-art through conceptual and empirical research, this book extends the thought on how open innovation can catalyse the open data ecosystems. It explores not only the implications for digital innovation and capacity building but also for fair dealing, openness in governance and health and well-being of citizens.
Responding to the need for further conceptual and empirical research on technology-enhanced open innovation, Digital Innovation reveals knowledge on how firms from different sectors have successfully implemented digital technologies for Open Innovation. Based on rich empirical data, this book discusses the benefits and drawbacks, processes, characteristics and management practices of digitally-driven Open Innovation in private as well as public organizations.
Digital Innovation: Harnessing the Value of Open Data retails for US$98 / £85 (hardback). To order or know more about the book, visit http://www.
