IT managers should also consid- er who the data recipients are and whether the data corresponds to ac- tual needs. “This is what we tried to capture in the calculus though P, the probability that opening the data is going to cre- ate positive outcomes,” Sahuguet said. “If there is not an ecosystem of devel- opers, hackers, community members who are really going to be engaged with your data, if there is no future of data-drivenness or data acumen on the recipient side, it’s just like screaming in a forest. Nobody is going to hear you.” Feedback on the calculus has been positive and widespread, Sangokoya said. For instance, it has been put to use in Italy, and Belgium used it in an open-data day. Overall, government workers have said it put on paper the ideas they had in mind. Still, the calculus is not perfect. Sa- huguet and Sangokoya are consider- ing factors such as how the decision to open data is made by multiple people over time, not by a single individual in the moment. “The element of peer pressure, group behavior and game theory is not captured in the calculus,” Sahuguet said. “This is not the formula that is going to revolutionize the field of open data. It is a very, very modest contribu- tion, and we really want to open the conversation.” • A calculus for open data Here are the factors that influence each element of a formula that can help public-sector agencies decide which data is worth opening Probability of use Benefits Sector-specific impact Cost PxB+D>C 0515gcn_030-031.indd 31 4/30/15 9:53 AM
