The provision of publicly available open data leads to transparency in several public sector exchanges, spending and decisions. However, this information is served massively and heterogeneously - mostly due to different bureaucratic procedures and paperwork formats, 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.
