Corporate master data as key to ‘new’ hidden insight
The Danish e-Governance Strategy includes free access to selected public data for private commercial use. Rough estimates for the Danish economy indicate that the private sector will benefit twice as much as the public sector on the e-Governance Strategy over a period of 5-10 years
Denmark already introduced central digital base registers in the 1960’s to enable higher quality of service in public organizations. Base registers were initially not designed to be shared between administrative entities, but designed for basic interconnection between public administrative systems.
The establishment of a Danish Common Public-sector Data Distributor must be viewed in the context of The Danish e-Governance Strategy concerning shared Basic Data for all authorities. The Basic Data program focuses on handling the barriers that exist to the effective use and re-use of Basic Data. As a consequence of these barriers, the Basic Data program defined the following five focus areas:
- Costs of Basic Data
- Accessibility of Basic Data
- Quality of Basic Data
- Cohesion of Basic Data
- Management of Basic Data
The Danish e-Governance Strategy includes free access to selected public data for private commercial use. Rough estimates for the Danish economy indicate that the private sector will benefit twice as much as the public sector on the e-Governance Strategy over a period of 5-10 years. In total that is a considerable contribution to total GDP growth with public investments as facilitator.

Today private corporates as well as public institutions store a lot of data mainly for the use of operational applications. Most of that data is stored within “business silos” and only used for pre-defined narrow scope. Imagine this “Hidden Information” could be released to loosen up any “Hidden Insight” you didn’t knew and thus provide decision makers with a better background to make data driven decisions.
When answering the challenge please consider the following issues:
- Aspects of data Privacy/Security and governance when data is free and open for public use and design a service that can be provided e.g. from an App-store.
- Ethic issues raised by being able to disclose information that data owners (individuals and companies) had no idea existed. E.g. users of social media like LinkedIn realize that information from other media (like your cell phone) is used to promote services from LinkedIn.
Pick a specific challenge and draft a concept that based in data solves the challenge.
Examples, but be creative:
- “Abnormal conditions in the building stock” based on analysis of e.g. use of electricity and number of residents.
- Or “Structure in the food/restaurant sector” based on insight in “Smiley” data and Geo-information.
Be creative, original and out-of-box!
When we evaluate your solutions we will consider the following criteria:
- We are focused on originality.
- We are focused on a clear focus on challenge and business area.
- Consider who is customer vis-a-vis user of the solution and what benefits they have from buying/using the solution respectively.
- If you can produce materials (i.e. statements from users/professionals, potential customers, municipalities, reports, statistics, observations), which support your solution it will be evaluated positively.
