The first version of the unified state open data portal data.gov.ua.
In 2014, SocialBoost pioneered the launch of the National Open Data Portal, Data.gov.ua, in collaboration with the Ministry of Regional Development, Construction, and Housing and Communal Services, marking a significant stride toward transparent governance in Ukraine.
Data.gov.ua serves as a centralized repository for open government data, collecting information across 12 categories as mandated by Ukrainian legislation. These categories encompass legal, financial, transport, demographic, cultural, social, and other datasets. By aggregating and systematizing information, the portal significantly improves the accessibility of public data. This shift enables Ukrainian developers and activists to leverage data to create socially impactful services.
Acknowledging the critical need for robust hosting, Microsoft Ukraine has generously provided SocialBoost with the resources of the Windows Azure cloud platform. This support ensures seamless operation and uninterrupted access to the national portal, underlining a collaborative effort to advance technological infrastructure.
In summary, Data.gov.ua is a testament to SocialBoost's commitment to open governance and technological progress. By providing a structured and accessible repository of government data, this initiative has far-reaching implications, from fostering innovation to strengthening the relationship between citizens and the state.
