Open Data Portal ODP
Open data portal (ODP) consists of the most important data that everyone can easily access. It is mainly used for the government sector as they have to be accountable to the public from the facts and figures. Every country has its own datasets of different sectors that can evaluate the performance of the government and the situation of the country. To gather all data in one platform, the government frequently uses open data portals to update as per need.
Open Data Portal For Abu Dhabi Government Web Application
So, the chance MMCGBL got to meet with the Abu Dhabi Government to serve with the best solution of making the government open a data portal. The challenging opportunity is to get the minimum details of the project and requirements from the clients.
As our clients are Dubai-based, we started communication with team calls and scheduled frequent meetings in a week. Our team followed agile methodology and took the project in a very streamlined way by keeping clients in a loop.
What is The Problem?
The problem they discussed with us is they want to enhance the user interface and data harvesting from one to other site resources. They also need 24/7 support to manage and maintain the web app that helps users have a great experience.
The government regulations run on 12 topics, and they want to mine more data regarding different government sectors. The 12 topics include the health sector, agriculture sector, education sector, import and export sectors, etc.
As it is a big project, our team members paid attention to minor to major details to make this project a successful one. And believe in these words, the project got successful that too ahead of the timeline.
What Features have been Added? A Complete solution
Multiple File Exportation
Users can explore physical files of public data in CSV, Excel, and PDF. As this portal aims to provide accurate data for public use, it is necessary to provide multiple options to export files.
Sort out Datasets
Our developers made ODP more accessible and easy to use by adding a filter bar that helps users scrap out data. Users can search data via topics, tags, and keywords.
Data harvesting refers to copies of datasets and metadata from one platform to another. It’s comparable to the methods used by search engines to find, classify, and index material from several websites in order to make it searchable in one place.
The open data portal represents the stats visualization in graphical representation. The user interface is so engaging and informative as it displays a distinct color for showing the ups and downs of data stats.
Technology Stack for ODP Web App
Developers are very optimistic when choosing the programming language because it is the base of any application. Developing an open data portal makes data easy to access and resharable. Moreover, this project needs a strong database to control and support datasets because the data is sufficiently uploaded and updated over time.
For Frontend Development — React Native
For Backend Development — Drupal CMS
Our senior project managers suggested Drupal development for the backend, a free, open-source web content management system. Our Drupal development team was eagerly waiting to start this project as it was a milestone if we achieved.
Drupal development has a highly scalable and flexible nature CMS, which is why Drupal is popular. This CMS platform itself is built with the PHP language, one of the most advanced language in Drupal development.
Database — MySQL
This project is based on heavy data requiring updating and uploading new datasets. It needs a high-performing database, so our developers chose “MySQL” as a relational database management system.
Rather than placing everything into one giant storage unit, a relational database divides your data into numerous discrete storage spaces called tables. In fact, this app was supposed to store chunks of data as they have many government sectors.
What Is the Outcome? — The Results
So, the ODP project is completed, but it is still in our hands as they wanted a professional team to always be available for support. It is worthwhile to say that our project was completed within the deadline, and we were able to deliver the projects with all testing
Although we have done multiple projects, it is another level of achievement when we serve any country’s government for its people. Although all these things are apart, wour Drupal developers are now working on migrating the whole app from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8. We are very excited to share our experience and the whole migrated apps very soon.
A few days after launching, we received our client feedback, and look what he said about us
Building an open data platform was not easy if we had done it manually. Fortunately, we came to know about MMCGBL and its services regarding the grocery software services. Now, we have a completely open data platform. People can access and we can manage the platform easily.
It’s been a long time since our organisation found a platform that could make us grocery software services. So we can share our organisational data and the rising graph of our investments and ROI. Thanks to MMCGBL’s open data portal solution for building such an amazing and user-friendly platform. Highly recommended.
Great experience with MMCGBL! They are helping worldwide for building open data portal solutions. Especially for government transparency and free distribution of data regarding taxes, expenditure, state-wise production, etc.
