Creating a more dynamic open data ecosystem in Mexico for greater value co-creation (Open Government Data Review of Mexico: Data Reuse for Public Sector Impact and Innovation)

This chapter discusses the challenges and opportunities faced by the Mexican government outside its government apparatus to fully reap the potential of open data as a mechanism to create public value. It discusses the potential of the central open data portal as a value co-creation platform that could contribute to building user communities around open government data while fostering user-driven data disclosure. The chapter highlights the need to further engage specific user communities – such as journalists and students – as a requisite to invigorate the national open data ecosystem, the relevance of building skills across government, civic and business communities to empower the ecosystem to reuse data. It also underscores the necessity to strengthen multi-stakeholder collaboration and engagement to contribute to data-driven innovation and foster the digital economy in a sustainable fashion.
