  • to increase transparency
  • to provide access to information
  • to decrease the number of information requests and, consequently, also reduce the workload of public sector workers
  • to facilitate creation and management of open services for private and community sectors
  • to encourage migration to future technologies such as Linked Data, Big Data and Internet of Things
