Many businesses are embracing the sharing of data, and are seeing tangible benefits for their organisations and across their entire sectors. Josh D’Addario, Consultant at the ODI, has been talking to these organisations and researching the benefits. Josh shares his top seven reasons why businesses should be sharing data.
The ODI is engaging with private-sector companies to show how sharing data can positively impact the bottom line.
We are already seeing open approaches to data happening in sectors such as physical activity, banking, and pharmaceuticals.
This project seeks to demonstrate the business value of sharing data to a sector, network or individual business, looking at how an organisation might benefit in terms of innovation, network capabilities, and brand positioning.

We’re currently developing a toolkit to help people working in the private sector to plan their data sharing strategies. It is due to be created by the end of March, so please share your details below to receive the toolkit when it’s ready.
About the ODI
The ODI was co-founded in 2012 by the inventor of the web Sir Tim Berners-Lee and artificial intelligence expert Sir Nigel Shadbolt to show the value of open data, and to advocate for the innovative use of open data to affect positive change across the globe.
We’re an independent, non-profit, non-partisan company that, since our creation, has welcomed high-profile board members including Mumsnet founder Justine Roberts, Lastminute.com founder Baroness Martha Lane Fox and former European Commissioner Neelie Kroes.
Headquartered in London, with an international reach, thousands of members, thousands of people trained, dozens of startups incubated, and a convening space based in the heart of London’s thriving Shoreditch area, we invite everyone interested in developing with data – whether on an individual, organisational or global level – to get in touch.
