El enfoque del Gobierno Abierto sin una perspectiva estratégica no es nada más que acciones puntuales que con el paso del tiempo quedan atrás. Más allá de la perspectiva del front office, donde los principios de transparencia, colaboración o participación han sido especialmente asociados a la interacción con la ciudadanía, la implementación real del gobierno abierto requiere especialmente de políticas públicas aplicadas a elementos clave también desde el back office (sistemas de información, procesos, colaboración interinstitucional, etc) y que serán fundamentales para conseguir ir más allá de las modas, y pensar ya en la próxima etapa de forma sostenida. Esta ponencia aborda la perspectiva estratégica del Open Government desde el back office, especialmente en el contexto de la Smart City, donde elementos como Redes Neuronales, Green IT, Big Data, Smart Grid o Cloud Computing, son abordados como clave.

“Open Budget is bringing the people back into government by taking budget data out of government file cabinets and making it available to the public for the first time in an easy-to-access, downloadable form.
Jason Hare's insight:

Open budget data is becoming a hot open data topic. Openspending.org, The World Bank as well as US Federal efforts are making budget data within open data sets an expectation rather than a novelty. Note Cuoma's emphasis on "easy-toaccess".
