Reliable solutions for cloud, web and mobile

Open data

We have integrated several sources of open data into our systems, for example:

  • Weather data from the Finnish Meteorological Institute
  • Geospatial data from the National Land Survey of Finland
  • Address and postcode information from Posti Group

Our middleware solution can also help organizations to publish their open data where it is advantageous to let data to be used openly by third parties.

We believe that open data is a continuous process — not a one time publication. We implement systems that continuously track relevant data in their origin system and process it to be provided to consumers of open data via a scalable cloud infrastructure.
