Queensland Open Data Portal

The Queensland Government today awarded a three year extension including options for its whole of government open data portal to local service provider Emantra Pty Ltd. 

The service provides access to huge volumes of government documents and data which can be searched and downloaded in accordance with Queensland’s commitment to an open government data policy.  It currently processes millions of requests per week.

"We host the site from premium local data centres which means Queensland's data stays in Queensland.  The contract was re-awarded over competition from offshore cloud vendors and is a great win for the local IT services industry." said Ross Dewar, Emantra CEO.
