Nowadays, the provision of publicly available open data targets to provide transparency in several public sector actions and decisions. However, this information is served massively and in different forms - mostly due to different bureaucratic procedures - while its diffusion does not occur at regular or at least generally predictable time intervals. Thus, even though the information is available by the involved public sectors, enterprises and citizens are overwhelmed from the size/inconsistency of the information they deal with.
