Who we are

We are leaders

Established in 2001, Link Digital is a globally focused open information company helping government, NGO and corporate clients make meaningful change through open data.

As developers, implementers and contributors to CKAN since 2012, we provide expert consulting, design and build capability for data repository management. Our team of dedicated professionals focus on making data discoverable, searchable and easy to interpret to help our clients make sound decisions and solve real-world problems.

Through a blend of creativity, strategic advice and technical expertise, we offer comprehensive application development and support services for various data portal solutions.

We know data

Our expertise lie in all elements of open data management:

  • Data architecture including metadata, indexing, cataloguing and dataset management
  • Web and UI design and development for dynamic data manipulation and visualisation
  • Integration to a range of database and data management technologies, and data workflow development
  • Combining data management systems with content management systems
  • Cloud computing and hosted environments.

We combine this with our deep knowledge of CKAN, and our Agile Methodology, to deliver successful project outcomes at all levels of scale, from point solutions to cloud-based enterprise implementations.

Our values

Our way of working

At Link Digital our way of working is heavily influenced by our vision; To create meaningful change and, we do this by remaining true to our core values.

As an open information technology company with a largely distributed and growing team, with a similarly distributed list of clients growing around the world, our day to day operations are supported by tools and strong engagement with open communities.

We are highly engaged as a co-steward of the CKAN  open source project, with several staff directly involved in the Governance, community and technical teams. This involvement benefits our clients as we act as proxy for their interest in CKAN’s technical roadmap, update releases and sustainability initiatives.

As an agile team, we employ Scrum methodology work managed via two-week sprints. Jira provides our clients with direct and immediate transparency over work in progress and provides the opportunity for further collaboration.

With staff located in a variety of time zones, we run international project teams and fit some aspects of our ‘way of working’ to align with our client timezones.  To communicate with empathy through non-verbal cues we encourage the use of  Zoom video conferencing for meetings such as client briefings, business analysis, consulting, training and feature/story elaboration. We also run our internal meeting processes via zoom.us for internal scrum stand-ups, backlog elaboration and retrospectives.
