Data Roadmap: setting the direction for New Zealand's data

Data Roadmap 5

The availability of new data and sophisticated technologies has enabled exciting uses of data that continue to transform how we see, act, and engage with the world.

The Data Strategy and Roadmap (Roadmap) [PDF 2.72MB] is now available. Commissioned by the Government Chief Data Steward (GCDS), the Roadmap provides a shared direction and plan for New Zealand’s data system (the people and organisations that collect and use data).

As a living document, the Roadmap will lay a responsive and flexible foundation for organisations to work together and align their data initiatives, ultimately leading to more effective and efficient use of data, reducing costs and supporting innovation. It will be reviewed and updated regularly.
