Summary

In our case studies, we explored the potentials of open data in town priority development areas, namely Maternal Health and Childcare (MHCC) and Micro-Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (MSME). In both areas, transaction-service related practices were examined. For MHCC, our case examined community health service practices. While for MSME, our study focussed on cooperatives and how these cooperatives promote competitiveness and productivity of ther MSEM members. I both cases, we looked at opportunities for which open data techniques can be used to support these practices.

Using a case approach that included 3 provinces, our study examined how work activities in these development areas were done. Moreover, our study also looked at the type of data sets, its current use, and how ICT can be used by local stakeholders.
