Open data readiness assessment : Malaysia (English)

This open data readiness assessment was prepared for the Government of Malaysia, at the request of Malaysian Administrative Modernization and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU). It is the product of a joint team of experts from both the World Bank Group Global Knowledge and Research Hub in Malaysia and World Bank Headquarters, working in close collaboration with MAMPU. The purpose of this assessment is to assist the government in diagnosing what actions it can consider in order to further promote the existing open data initiative. An open data initiative involves addressing both the supply and the reuse of open data, as well as other aspects such as skills development, financing for the government’s open data agenda, and targeted innovations linked to open data infrastructure, policy, and legal framework. The World Bank open data readiness assessment framework uses an ecosystem approach to open data, meaning it is designed to look at the larger environment for open data - supply side issues like the policy and legal framework, data existing within government and infrastructure (including standards) as well as demand side issues like citizen engagement mechanisms and existing demand for government data among user communities (such as developers, the media, and government agencies). The recommendations and actions presented are based on global best practices while also incorporating the needs and experiences of the Government of Malaysia to date. Within each dimension, the assessment considers a set of primary questions, and for each, notes evidence that favors or disfavors readiness.
