Two of the major concerns of recent times have been opening up of government data online and ensuring control over personal data. Interoperability play an important role in both.

When it comes to government data it is necessary to ensure that the data are in formats that citizens can make use of that data. Similarly, when it comes to personal data online, it is important to ensure that such data can be migrated from one service provider to another. While the former will aid in governance, the latter is necessary to ensure fair competition.

These two issues are proposed to be looked at in this best practices forum.
