Affinity Works has joined the forward-thinking Open Data Institute which is dedicated to building a strong, fair and sustainable data economy by helping businesses and government get data to the people who need it.
As an organisation that provides local authorities with the necessary data analytics and predictive tools to manage demand and delivery of social care services, Affinity Works is likewise focused on ensuring the people who require a service have all the right information they need to access the service.
Richard Wellings, Director at Affinity Works says: “It is very timely that we are joining the ODI with its mission to build an open and trustworthy data ecosystem as it will enhance the work we do to maximise the value of data to facilitate informed decision making which will be vital to adapt to the new climate.”
