The Business Intelligence Center’s (BIC) goal is to support the advancement of Colorado businesses by providing the freshest public data, insight and tools, across several focus areas:
• Data Curation & Publishing. As of 2019, BIC curated, published and maintained over 290 data sets, with more added each year. Data is published through the Colorado Information Marketplace (CIM - data.colorado.gov) and is:
• Guaranteed Fresh
• Machine readable
• Discoverable
• Complete with an API and great metadata to provide useful context.
• Technical Support & Engagement. BIC provides technical support and engagement, training, and tools to government agencies and private industry. This helps get data published and provides much needed technical guidance to make more data accessible each year.
• Community Engagement & Outreach. Data is only useful when the public is aware it exists and it is applied to solve real-world business problems. BIC engages with the technology, data, education, and business communities to put the power of public data in the hands of Colorado businesses.
We will explore the work of the Secretary of States, Business Intelligence Center (BIC) with a panel discussion by key program personnel covering Go Code Colorado; Community Data Education Workshops and the work it takes to acquire and publish public data to the Colorado Information Marketplace (CIM).
