Abstract

This work is based on the analysis of public and internal reports, interviews, and data practices concerning the initiatives and platforms for the management of Milton Keynes Open Data from 2004 to 2018. This report analyses in particular the transition from the MK Intelligence Observatory (MKiO), providing data services through an Intelligence Team, to the setup of MK:Insight (MKI), the smart city data portal of Milton Keynes, providing direct access to datasets and reports. The background of this case study is intertwined with national and global milestones that changed the framing of the concepts of open data, open government and the role of the technologies in this context over time. Here, we outline an overview of where and how open data, open government and data technologies began, intersected and impacted on the local data and smart strategy of Milton Keynes, resulting in the transition from MKiO to MKI.
