"Being at the forefront of Europe's open data movement, we're using technology and public data to drive our innovation, simplification, and digitization goals. We’ve found that many of our answers can be discovered in data that we already have. By hosting an Open Data Portal through Socrata and Windows Azure, we're able to capitalize on the full value of our data resources."

Oscar Sovani, Leader of Digital Agenda, Regione Lombardia, Italy

"Thanks to Socrata, departments can easily see each other’s data and get access to it without having to go through some hierarchical process."
