Siloed data is one of the biggest impediments in data sharing and accessibility. Instead of breaking silos or moving data in volumes into a central repository, the approach here is to interconnect the disparate and distributed entities through a common data exchange platform.
IUDX was born out of the need to enable data exchange between various city departments, government agencies, citizens and private sector. IUDX helps the cities in using the data intelligently to address complex urban challenges, establish integrated development across various aspects of the urban sector and catapult them to the next stage of innovation. IUDX is completely open source, based on an underlying framework of open standard APIs, data models, and the security, privacy and accounting mechanisms that will facilitate its easy adoption across the digital ecosystem.
IUDX was officially launched on February 23, 2021 by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs and the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology in presence of the in the presence of Hon’ble Ministers and Secretaries of the respective Ministries, along with other officers of the Central and State Governments.
