To help with this I’ve asked a couple of our highest profile users to give me quotes. These should help!
“The Open Day map, based on open data, amazed so many of our visitors, is was great example of how our leading edge research has translated into a very real an practical application, second only to Soton Bus!”
- Professor Debra Humphris, University of Southampton Pro Vice-Chancellor Education
“As a Caterer I am often quoting that ‘I bake bread, I don’t do IT!’ we like to keep it simple and this is exactly what Open data does for us. We can use formats and software we are used to and manage up to date real time information. This will ensure we are keeping customers up to date with information that they want. There is more to come as well and in Catering we have designed our whole web site and marketing strategy around the Open Data technology, watch this space Catering is catching up.”
- James Leeming, University of Southampton Retail Catering Manager
I should point out that linking data for the sake of linking is just a distraction. The biggest power of our linking is internal, linking various datasets against each other. Don’t waste time doing things that aren’t useful, but make sure the data is linkable so people can add value later.
Cheers Chris. I was gonna update the post to add your comments, but you’ve saved me the job . Much appreciated. Ade
