We built CKAN and the world's first data portals

Our team is proud to be led by the creator of CKAN himself, Dr. Rufus Pollock, president at Datopian. We built CKAN, the world's leading open-source data management platform and the world's first portals for publishing open data such as data.gov and data.gov.uk.

We've worked for companies and organizations like Google, the World Bank and FedEx, and have successfully deployed dozens of projects for government, Fortune 500 enterprises and international NGOs.
