Deployment of Open Data portals in the Cloud




OpenDataSoft, the Open Data leader, is developing an online platform designed for the rapid and economical transformation of all types of data into innovative services.

Provided in SaaS (Software as a Service) mode, the OpenDataSoft solution enables public and private organizations to build data portals to be used either on-premise, or in public mode within the framework of open data projects.

This solution facilitates the publication, viewing, sharing and re-use of API (Application Programming Interface) data by business users with no volume limit.
