OCSI shortlisted for Open Data Awards

For the second year running, we are so pleased to have been shortlisted for an ODI Open Data Award in the ‘Open Data Business’ category.

The past year has been a busy and exciting time for us.

  • We have launched two new branches of our Insight products
    • Local Insight: Following the success of Community Insight, we have launched Local Insight – our open data, community mapping and reporting tool for local authorities and community organisations.
    • Community Insight Scotland: Not content with just Community Insight England and Community Insight Wales, we have spread northwards and have launched Community Insight for Scottish Housing Associations.
  • There are also a few more in the pipeline – watch this space as Community Insight goes down under & we launch our asset management tool, being developed in partnership with HACT & JRP.
  • The updates to the Indices of Deprivation, which we have been working on for over a year are due for publication in September
  • … And the OCSI team is growing, with 4 new members joining us this year.

So, to be shortlisted for the Open Data Business award by The Open Data Institute is really the cherry on top of a large open data cake! You can see the full list of shortlisted candidates here.

We’ll keep you updated with any developments, fingers crossed!
