Data- and Knowledge Portals

Organisations working in the field of sustainable development - as the environmental, energy or development sector - most often act as intermediary between politics, economy and citizens. These organisations have outgrown their role as pure information providers and more and more become important providers of fundamental data in these days. To service the demands of their stakeholders and to reach their organisational objectives they have to act also as data, tool and service providers for their respective communities.

Thereby such organisations - mainly NGOs and NPOs but also governmental institutions - have a strong need for high quality and -professional web-based information- and data management. Furthermore, the open data movement serves the special needs of these organisaions very well to help them to reach their mission of knowledge sharing and collaboration. Last but not least, the need for powerful information- and data visualisation is an important building block to support efficient and sustainable awareness building.
