Openness

« Back to Dictionary Index

in relation to data and information – also linked to interoperability

means that it is provided or made available in a format that can be accessed and used without
recourse to the software that generated it. Openness is the opposite of proprietary, where
information and data are in the generating software’s native format and may or may not be
able to be opened by other software.
