Data.GovHerndon, VA – 2 July 2012  – Luke Spikes, President & Chief Executive Officer of Spikes Cavell Analytic Inc., has been invited to share his extensive experience of open data by participating in a key panel at the International Open Government Data Conference co-sponsored by data.gov and the Worldbank. Fellow panellists for the discussion around “Delivering on the Value of Open Data” will include Todd Park, U.S. Federal Chief Technology Officer and Dan Weeks, Founder & Chief Operating Officer, BrightScope Inc. The panel discussion will take place at 4:30-5:30 on Wednesday, July 11 2012 and be moderated by Theresa Pardo, Executive Director, Center for Technology in Government, University at Albany, State University of New York.

Luke Spikes said: “Spikes Cavell became an active participant in the world of open data with the launch in May 2010 of spotlightonspend - a managed online transparency solution that leverages the company’s data transformation and management expertise to make it straightforward and inexpensive for public bodies to publish information about their spend on goods and services. spotlightonspend makes public sector spend data more relevant, meaningful and easier for citizens to understand. Already deployed by more than 50 public bodies in the UK, the first US public agency (the City of Naperville, IL) went live with spotlightonspend in June 2012. I look forward to sharing the platform with Todd, Dan and Theresa and sharing the benefit of our experience delivering value from open data.”

The IOGDC brings together the world's foremost experts on open government data. From policy to technology, IOGDC promises to be filled with thoughtful, dynamic discussion around the historic opportunity presented by open government data to foster collaboration, transparency, and interactive public participation.
