The Data Office allows the comprehensive management of public data and has as its main objective the processing of all the information generated within a city, both from areas that depend on local government and from those that do not, making it possible to subsequent analysis of the data and the preparation of reports that are delivered periodically to the different sectors of the administration. In this way, the officials obtain a real diagnosis of the state of the situation that allows them to take the measures aimed at solving the challenges that arise.
